Two of our favorite ladies, Kerry Washington and Jennifer Hudson, were on hand for Variety's 5th Annual Power of Women Event in Beverly Hills this week. And of course they both looked smashing.

Kerry opted for a black-and-gold polka dotted number by Vince Camuto and finished off with a pair of embellished Christian Louboutin pumps and a Nancy Gonzalez clutch. We just love when the "Scandal" star rocks a bold print and shows off the fearless style skills that make her the world's best-dressed woman.

Meanwhile, JHud decided to go neutral in a white long-sleeved peplum dress by Yigal Azrouel. Wearing white after Labor Day could seem risky to some, but this ensemble is definitely a win.

Ciara rounds up our top looks of the week with the sexy getup she wore to the Givenchy show during Paris Fashion Week. The 27-year-old singer teamed a Givenchy sweatshirt with a sheer column skirt and strappy sandals. Leave it to Ciara to pull off such a crazy combination. We love it.

Check out those lovely ladies and the rest of the week's best-dressed stars -- including Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and Alicia Keys -- in the slideshow below.
