Michelle Obama named best dressed woman

US First Lady Michelle Obama has been named the most stylish woman in the world, beating Queen Elizabeth and Victoria Beckham.

The 49-year-old was commended for using fashion as a “force for good” by Sunday Times Style magazine.

Michelle is the wife of the 44th and current President of the US, Barack Obama, and the very first African-American First Lady of the US.

She was described as “understanding that, as her primary role as the First Lady is visual, fashion can be a force for good used to inspire and entertain”.

Other names that made the top 25 include Spice Girls singer and fashion designer Victoria Beckham, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt — six-year-old daughter of Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and actor Dame Helen Mirren.

Meanwhile, singer Lady Gaga has been named worst dressed by the magazine’s editors and contributors.
