She’s up for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series trophy, and Kerry Washington showed plenty of star power at last night’s (September 17) Dynamic & Diverse- A 65th Emmy Awards Nominee celebration.

The “Scandal” starlet was joined by costar Joe Morton as she strolled around the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in North Hollywood, sporting a marvelous magenta dress teamed with Joan Hornig earrings.

Meanwhile, Kerry was just named the World’s Best Dressed Woman by People Magazine for her daring red carpet choices.

In their “Why We Chose Her” section, People explained, “Washington and her character on Scandal, Olivia Pope, have little in common except for this: impeccable style that results in haute hit after hit and nary a miss. So, how does she always manage to get it right on the red carpet? ‘I like to find balance in an outfit where it doesn't feel too much of any one thing. 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.’”
