Each year, People magazine releases its annual list of the best-dressed women in the world. This year too, the magazine's editors and doff their hats to the women who made a style statement each time they stepped out into public view.

We start out with the Scandal star Kerry Washington who was voted the best-dressed celebrity. Washington told the magazine that the secret to her impeccable style was her ability to find 'the middle ground. "It's not dressing like a nun and it's also not dressing like I'm in a swimsuit competition," she told the magazine.

Earlier this year, we had listed Jenna Dewan-Tatum among the best-dressed pregnant celebrities.

Channing Tatum's lovely dancer-actress wife also received a nod for her pregnancy wardrobe selection.

"I think [Dewan-Tatum] is brilliant at mixing maternity and not maternity. What I see with other celebrities is that they're either completely non-maternity or completely maternity, and it doesn't work all the time. I think mixing and matching is a great way to go," Rosie Pope of Rosie Pope Maternity who nominated her for the list wrote in People.
