Last week, a star in a white mini and strappy heels landed at the top of the Most Loved Looks list and we wondered why Kerry Washington was denied that spot. This week, another star in a white mini and strappy heels edged out Kerry Washington again.

Nina Dobrev earned over 19,000 likes thanks to her gem-studded Azzaro mini with a simple silhouette save for the keyhole cutout. She paired the dress with metallic Jimmy Choo sandals and a woven black clutch for the CW Upfronts party in N.Y.C.

Meanwhile, nearly 1,000 votes behind Dobrev, was runner-up Washington, who also wore a simple light-colored dress, this one Giambattista Valli.

But what surprised (and yes, slightly disappointed us) was that Washington’s stunning beige Lanvin creation was all the way at the #8 spot!

It’s not that we don’t think Dobrev looked great (obviously, she did), but we just don’t understand how Washington keeps missing that coveted spot.

What do you think? Did Dobrev deserve the title of best dressed star? Or do you agree with us that it should have gone to Washington in her Lanvin dress?

I love Nina and her style here.

I love love love Nina’s style but she really doesn’t have that much versatility. Her dresses are uniform I.e., sheath dresses. Very classic but misses that sexy sex appeal factor if she wouldve tried something else. Whereas someone like Gwenyth Paltrow, who has the same body type ( tall & thin) can be classic and give off sex appeal. I hope I’m making sense.

I liked the dress and hated the shoes. How hard can it be to find shoes that fit?? It’s not like these people are strapped for cash.
This is better than other dresses she wears anyway. Her other ones always seem to be devoid of any real personal taste.

The writer of these articles needs to give it rest regarding Kerry Washington. Yes, she dresses well, but so do other people, and she doesn’t need constant acknowledgement from Style News.

The continuous references to why she should have won over the actual winner is bizarre.

I’ll give you a clue… She’s not w***e. Cue the feigned outrage…

Kitchy on

Because Kerry Washington isn’t that well dressed, and her hair normally ruins it even if she is. Really, whoever writes this column needs to be fired, they continuously whine about Washington and then put down readers for choosing someone else.

You don’t let people vote on who they like the best. You let them vote if they like the outfit period. If you made it to where we picked our favorite then the winner would be different.

Wow. She is absolutely stunning.
