LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIAUNITED STATES  (AMPAS POOL) -  Kerry Washington, the Emmy-nominated actress for her role in the ABC television drama "Scandal" is the "World's Best Dressed Woman," People magazine said on Wednesday (September 17).

Although Washington nabbed the best dressed title, Lawrence, the winner of this year's best actress Oscar for "Silver Linings Playbook" was cited as having the best high fashion style, and actress Jessica Chastain, 36, the star of 2012's "Zero Dark Thirty" had the best red carpet style, according to People magazine.

Knowles got top marks for her risk-taking style and confidence.

Zoe Saldana, of "Avatar" , had the best denim style and actress Lily Collins, 24, was named the best for up-and-coming style.

The celebrity magazine compiled the list after getting input from its editors, its 42 million readers and fashion directors and bloggers.

Along with selecting the best dressed women, the magazine also looked back at fashion mistakes, citing actress Sarah Jessica Park's haute hawk Philip Treacy punk headdress at the Met Ball in New York and Michelle Obama's bangs.
