It should come as no surprise that Kerry Washington was named the best dressed woman of 2013. The star of "Scandal" and "Django Unchained" is a certified fashionista, and it's about time she got recognized for it.

"I like to find balance in an outfit where it doesn't feel too much of any one thing," Washington tells People, the magazine that named her best dressed, of her fashion style. "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."

That's definitely a fine line that Washington has managed to successfully walk.
