Nominated for: Her outstanding performance in a lead role in Scandal.
Why we love her: Kerry's role in Scandal has proven just as addictive as her style. But when she's not playing powerful fixer — and presidential mistress — Olivia Pope, we're still tuning in to see what she'll wear on the red carpet. She never fails to wow, surprise, and impress, balancing fashion-forwardness with knowing what works and delivering full looks that make fashion-lovers everywhere swoon. That's exactly the effect this little two-tone mini had when she stepped out in London for an Esquire party earlier this year.
