LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - “Avatar” star Zoe Saldana, who played a sexy blue alien in the 3D extravaganza, made People magazine’s annual best-dressed list on Wednesday, alongside “Glee” actress Lea Michele and Prince William’s girlfriend.
Singers Gwen Stefani and Rihanna also appear in the top 10, which does not rank its entrants in order. Actresses Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba and Diane Kruger made the cut as well.
Saldana, 32, seen in “Avatar” wearing little but blue and an elegant tail, was dubbed the “Red Carpet Queen” by People for her grace, taste and sense of fun.
Michele, 24, who plays geeky Rachel Berry in the TV musical “Glee”, is “The Newbie” in the 2010 list, praised for wearing bold shades like scarlet and emerald on the red carpet.
And Kate Middleton, 28, the long-time girlfriend of the second-in-line to the British throne was dubbed the “Princess in Waiting” and won plaudits for always looking “chic and refined.”
Kruger, 34, who played a German double agent in last year’s “Inglourious Basterds,” was called the “Runway Renegade,” admired for doing her own make-up and putting style before comfort at celebrity events.
People also picked out some fashion moments that were just inglorious, including unfortunate red carpet appearances by Rita Wilson, the actress wife of Tom Hanks, and former screen siren Sharon Stone.
The magazine deemed the suicide of British fashion designer Alexander McQueen, Chelsea Clinton’s multimillion-dollar wedding and Canadian teen idol Justin Bieber’s floppy, eye-brow grazing hair as the most memorable style moments of the year.
