A combination photo shows Michelle Obama and singer Fergie
She fills two converted bedrooms with clothes -- one for casual and a second for glam -- and staying organized worked for singer Fergie who on Wednesday made People magazine's 2008 list of best dressed women.
"I don't like to throw anything away," Fergie said about the clothes in her "closets" for People's widely-watched Best & Worst Dressed 2008 issue that hits newsstands this Friday.
Joining Fergie in the top 10 list were actresses Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway, Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron, Eva Mendes, and Sarah Jessica Parker. Singer Rihanna and supermodel Heidi Klum also made the list.
Rounding out the top 10 was Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who was given high marks for a look that was "classic and confident."
At 44, the tall, athletic former lawyer was the most senior woman on the magazine's annual list.
"She has a look. She works it with confidence, and she knows what looks good on her," said People's Style Editor Clarissa Cruz
."Politics may be tougher than ever, but Obama has wowed along the campaign trail with confidence, in polished looks that bring to mind a famous former first lady," wrote People in an apparent reference to Jacqueline Kennedy.
"The thing they all have in common is that they all had a great year, stuck to their own personal style and stayed true to that," said Cruz.
The magazine's editors also spent time peering into the fashion choices of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin -- her rimless glasses, step-toe pumps and up do hairstyle.
"People are paying attention to what she's wearing, and we felt that was a news story," Cruz said.
Palin didn't talk to People, but her hairdresser did. She said the candidate would rather not discuss style choices "because she wants people to hear what she has to say."
The makers of the Kazuo Kawasaki eye glasses favored by Palin told People that demand has been "overwhelming" and "mostly from the middle states."
