PEOPLE Magazine Crowns Kerry Washington Fashion Queen

It looks like all those fashion study sessions have paid off.

Kerry Washington has taken the No. 1 spot on PEOPLE magazine's "Best Dressed" list for 2013 thanks to "Red-Carpet Kerry" flawlessly showing up and showing out. From Miu Miu at the Oscars to Rodarte at the SAG Awards, the Scandal actress has found a comfortable space in the fashion world.

"I like to find balance in an outfit where it doesn't feel too much of any one thing," she told PEOPLE. "It's not dressing like a nun and it's also not dressing like I'm in a swimsuit competition. It's finding the middle ground."

Albeit a fictional character, we're willing to bet Olivia Pope and her killer wardrobe gave Washington an edge over the competition.

Solange Knowles ("The Daredevil"), Zoe Saldana ("The Jean Queen"), Nicole Ritchie ("The Trendsetter) and others rounded out the list of ten. Check out who made the cut here!
