It's New York Fashion Week: Do you know your Yves Saint Laurent from your Alberta Ferretti? If not, there's a handy new app that'll help you learn how to act like you know.

Who could use something like this? Well, "Scandal" actress Kerry Washington, for one. In the new issue of Glamour, Washington talks about how she worked hard to transform herself into a red carpet glamazon.

"OK, I'm going to admit this: There were a couple of actresses whom I felt were having the upper hand careerwise -- because they knew how to work that red carpet," she said. "I was like, 'I'm missing a really important tool. If I am the CEO of the Kerry Washington Corporation, my marketing department is really lax.' So I sort of developed a new character: Red-Carpet Kerry. And I researched her like any other character. I actually called Tracee Ellis Ross [the actress and Diana Ross's daughter], who's a good friend, and literally asked, 'How do you pronounce Hermès?' Red-Carpet Kerry needed to know."

The Speak Chic app retails for $1.99 -- a small price to pay to sound like you know what you're talking about! [Speak Chic]
