Even in Hollywood — land of breast implants and botox — natural counts for something. So says People magazine, which Wednesday said Jennifer Aniston topped its list of best-dressed women of 2006 for her natural fashion sense.
The popular magazine’s annual best- and worst-dressed issue hits newsstands this Friday and features numerous Hollywood stars all given a moniker to describe their taste in couture.
Oscar winner Halle Berry, dubbed “The Classic,” is No. 2 behind Aniston, and No. 3 was “The Newcomer” Jessica Alba, 25, star of movies like last summer’s hit “Fantastic Four.”
Elizabeth Sporkin, People’s executive editor, said for the first time the list was picked by online readers and not the magazine’s editors. She said Aniston, “The Natural,” won by 54 percent.
“She has a fashion sense that is very accessible,” said Sporkin. “She wears jeans and T-shirts and blazers. She dresses like a regular person, and her evening wear, if you were going to an event, you would think you could really dress like her.”
Sporkin said Alba follows more trends and Berry is a master at picking outfits that fit well. In each case, she said the list’s stars were highly identifiable to everyday people.
For the men, singer Justin Timberlake was named “Trendiest,” and English soccer star David Beckham looked best in “jacket and jeans.” George Clooney took the honor of “best monochromatic” look.
“He’s the new Cary Grant,” Sporkin said of Clooney. “All these men are men who really pay attention and care about how they look.”
Of course, there were the worst fashions of the year, too. But instead of a top 10 list, the magazine took issue with style. There was public pajama wearing by the likes of Paris Hilton and Teri Hatcher’s penchant for showing off her underwear. People devoted an entire page to Sharon Stone.
“These are well-dressed people who really messed up,” Sporkin said. “They had a bad day.”
Then again, there are “world’s worst” British pinup models Jordan and Jodie Marsh. Jordan, whose real name is Katie Price, is renowned for her breast augmentations and Jodie has worked as a topless model and a “Page Three Girl” Britain’s The Sun.
They are “famous for their tacky style,” said Sporkin.
