“Scandal” star Kerry Washington is the world’s best-dressed woman, according to People magazine.
Washington, 36, has proved a red-carpet risk-taker, wearing up-and-coming designers and making atypical choices – such as a crystal-covered coral Miu Miu gown for the Oscars.
Unlike her character on ABC’s “Scandal,” Washington says she doesn’t wear many power-broker pantsuits.
King to perform

Keys announced Wednesday that the iconic singer will hit the stage at the fundraising gala Nov. 7 at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom for her charity, Keep a Child Alive. It will be the organization’s 10-year anniversary.
Keep a Child Alive assists people affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.
The childhood home of rapper Eminem has gone up for auction in Detroit.
