Kerry Washington mixes high end with high street, while “supporting young designers”.
When she's not red carpet ready at an event or film premiere, Kerry prefers a relaxed off-duty look.
The actress likes to mix things up with more affordable fashion items.
"Comfort is a priority," she told the latest edition of UK InStyle.
"I love MiH and anything from Topshop - that store is such an essential US import. The US high street is still nothing compared to the UK."
And it's not just the British shops she likes, but also the designers that the country produces.
Kerry's been quietly making waves in the fashion world for years.
But it wasn't until the promotion for Django Unchained started late last year that she finally caught the fashion world's full attention with an array of stunning dresses.
"The Giles gown I wore, I fell in love with it instantly. Dressing for the red carpet is a creative endeavour; working with a team to achieve the final look is fun,” she grinned.
"When it comes to clothes I try to make decisions I feel good about."
Last month Kerry claimed top spot in Vanity Fair's 2013 International Best Dressed List.
The 36-year-old actress has always enjoyed the feeling of dressing up.
"I've loved it since I was a kid," she said.
“My mom had a box of scarves and costume jewellery and I'd go crazy, tipping it all over the living room and pulling things on."
