Battle of the Kates: the Best Dressed Celebs

by Amy Lavelle on July 5, 2013

It’s a controversial, divisive and ongoing debate, isn’t it, the question of who the nation’s best dressed celebrity really is. If you’re of the Vivienne Westwood school of thought, there shouldn’t be anyone under the age of 70 on the list and, while we’re happy to hear there are options beyond elastic waisted polyester for our golden years, we do feel we deserve a bit more acknowledgement of how hard we’re working it at the moment.

To that end, we decided to conduct a poll to find out what you really think about the current state of celebrity style and crown an ultimate winner as the best dressed. (The worst too, ‘cause let’s face it, that’s the funny one.)



The results didn’t come as a massive slap in the face, with over 2000 people and influential fashion bloggers ultimately coming to the conclusion that the Duchess of Cambridge is the best dressed of the moment. Beating Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole to the post, it’s hardly a surprise when anything she wears in public results in it selling out mere moments later.

The rest of the top 10 though, did prove to be more divisive, with Lady Gaga (yes, she of the meat dress) snagging the number six spot, beating (manic, pixie) indie chic favourite Zooey Deschanel, who came in eighth. Guys, we didn’t know you felt that way.


On the ugly side of the coin, Katie Price was crowned worst dressed (that’s what comes of dressing as a pink pony in a wonderbra— with that coming in as the strangest sentence typed of my adult career to date) narrowly beating long term nemesis, now body builder Jodie Marsh, who came in at number two. If either of you would like to comment, Jodie, Katie, we’re all ears. There’s a diamante tiara in it for you.


As for the rest — oh Madge, you queen of the pop world, what are you doing in at number three, eh? Hard luck Kim, but we’ve had words over the carpet sample maternity gear before. Carol, rump of the year and butt of the joke? We thought you would fare better than this — well, we saw some of this coming.

While we had your attention, we decided not to stop the relentless barage of questions there (we’re nothing if not wanton opportunists when it comes to gauging opinions on life’s important issues) racking up some important stats that promise to forever change the way we get dressed in the morning.

While it may be no surprise that men and women have differing views over what constitutes sexy— girls, we may love our heels but men will apparently forever see the extra height provided by a six inch spike as intimidating, for some bizarre reason; slip on something tight or short if you’re looking to appease — that does leave the 67% of us who regularly ask the opinions of our other halves on our wardrobe tottering on uneven footing as 47% of men admitting they regularly lie to their wives and girlfriends on their thoughts about what they’re wearing. I do understand the outrage behind this in principle, but, as someone whose male companions in the past have lobbed out such gems as ‘My uncle has those trousers,’ ‘Are you wearing a blanket?’ and ‘Yes, your bum does look big in that’ there’s a lot to be said for having some tact.

For some sure fire style inspiration that’s bound to be a winner, check out our style files for our top three most stylish celebs, as voted for by you lot, so it must be good.
