2007 was one stylish year, but who were the Best Dressed stars? Access Hollywood counts down our choices!
Number 10: Drew Barrymore
2007 was all about growing up fashion-wise for film star Drew Barrymore. She wowed us at the Golden Globes in a Grecian-inspired pink number, while later in the year, she simply “popped” in a gorgeous yellow satin gown as she became a new face for CoverGirl.
Number 9: Beyonce
Throughout the year, Beyonce’s style was nothing short of dazzling. From her shimmering sequined floor length number at the Golden Globes to her bootylicious green ball gown for the “Movies Rock” show, Beyonce showed just how fabulous a girl with curves can be.
Number 8: Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon was a Style Star all year round, but it was her coming out as a single, independent woman at the Golden Globes that really made an impact. A toned and effervescent Reese stunned everyone in her bold, canary Nina Ricci dress, proving nice girls do finish first.
Number 7: Jennifer Aniston
From her flowing yellow frock at the People’s Choice Awards, to her thigh-skimming little black dress at an April GLAAD event, Jennifer Aniston won points for proving a woman can go classic and conservative and still be majorly sexy.
Number 6: Katie Holmes
Whether it was the influence of her gal pal Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham, or the constant compliments from her husband Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes became a standout Style Star in 2007. She rocked it in a little black dress in July at the NYC “Hairspray” premiere and stunned in a gorgeous peach and pink gown at Vanity Fair’s Oscar party in February.
Number 5: Eva Longoria
With her cool, stylish confidence, Eva Longoria netted our number 5 title. Her only rule in 2007? — wear designers that emphasize a woman’s body! Eva rocked it in numbers by Versace, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana.
“She reminds of Sophia Loren,” says Stacy London, host of TLC’s “Fashionably Late,” of Eva’s style presence.
Number 4: Victoria Beckham
From her tight bustiers, to a pink draping contraption over shorts, Victoria Beckham managed to look unbelievably chic all year round, in clothes most of us can’t pull off.
“She’s got an incredible figure and really, her style in general is severe! It’s got symmetry to it,” Stacy said.
But it was Victoria’s “Beckham Bob” haircut, which took fashion to new lengths!
“Her short haircut was the cut heard round the world. And she’s really taken that to the next level and it’s part of her celebrity,” Stacy said.
Number 3: Katherine Heigl
Katherine Heigl’s denim Zac Posen Emmy dress paired with bold red lips, catapulted her to Top Ten-style status for 2007.
But Katherine’s other red carpet moments were also grand, including the sexy white suit she paired with a collared black shirt for an April GLAAD event.
Also a style hit? Her black satin Golden Globe dress with its gorgeous, flowing train.
Number 2: Rihanna
Fresh and unfussy, Rhianna made her fashion mark in an Armani Prive corset, bright pink gown at the VMAs, and like Posh, her dynamic ‘do was critical to making the best-dressed list.
“[Rihanna’s cut] really aged her in an appropriate way,” Stacy said. “She went from being a little girl to a superstar.
Number 1: Jennifer Lopez
But it was Lady Lopez who netted Access Hollywood’s Best Dressed Award for 2007.
“J. Lo astounded us,” Stacy said.
From taking to the stage in Roberto Cavalli (not your typical maternity wear), to short trapeze dresses with thigh high boots, Jennifer did not let her pregnancy prevent her from rocking her high glam standard of style all year long.
“A one shoulder black-gold embroidered dress? That was by far the most stunning dress at the Golden Globes,” Stacy remarked of one of Jennifer’s 2007 highlights. “Even the jewelry, even the clutch purse, [were gorgeous].”
