The late Jackie Kennedy Onassis was always revered for her fashion-forward style. Now, Michelle Obama, a potential first lady-in-waiting, has been hailed as one of People magazine’s 10 Best Dressed Stars of 2008 for her keen sense of style. The 44-year-old Harvard Law School graduate, former vice-president of community and external affairs at the University of Chicago Medical Center, and mother of two’s confidence, polished looks and fresh take on classics such as sheath frocks have made her a style icon and among the oldest ever to make the cut. Rihanna’s good-girl-gone-bad transformation, which fuses tough-girl panache and uptown glam has made the 20-year-old, one of the youngest to make People’s list of top fashionistas. Goes to show you can be stylish at any age.
