Vogue's Best Dressed of 2009

Pop stars, rock royalty, leading ladies, First Ladies and models -- we present the style-setters who have caught our eye throughout 2009, in no particular order, with their consistently impressive sartorial choices.

From Alexa Chung's Brit-girl-abroad quirky sense of style and Michelle Obama's lauded ensembles to Kate Moss' always on-the-money look and Lady Gaga's bravely out-there get-ups, here's our pick of the year's most head-turning dressers.

1. ALEXA CHUNG

Alexa was exported to New York to present the "It's On With Alexa Chung" show for MTV. While there, she won over the US style pundits with her quirky style and kept us on side by staying true to the formula that won her our approval in the first place.

2. AUDREY TAUTOU

Having played the most important woman in fashion history, Audrey Tautou's armory of red carpet looks for the promotion of "Coco Before Chanel" was bound to be Chanel-heavy and very impressing indeed. It was.

3. SARAH JESSICA PARKER

With another "Sex And The City" film in the offing, and the recent release of "Have You Heard About The Morgans?", SJP is back to top form on the red carpet.

4. CHERYL COLE

Yes, we watched for the musical competition but, if we're honest, Cheryl's bi-weekly fashion moments on "X Factor" played a big part in our viewing loyalty. Her choice of edgy designers – including Marios Schwab, Giles, Richard Nicoll and David Koma -- earned her some serious cool kudos.

5. DANNII MINOGUE

And then there was Dannii, who was finally acknowledged as a contestant in the "X Factor" fashion stakes. Her hair – and her weekly get-ups from designers including Osman, Aurelio Costarella, J'Aton Couture and Donna Karan – kept us glued to our screens on Saturday and Sunday nights.

6. EMMA WATSON

8. DIANE KRUGER

It was a fashion marathon for Diane Kruger who, in the process of promoting "Inglourious Basterds," wore a staggering amount of well put-together looks with an emphasis on Chanel.

9. FREIDA PINTO

After "Slumdog Millionaire's" Oscar success earlier in the year, Frieda Pinto continued to wow us with her demure grace an knack for wearing truly juicy colours.

10. KATE MOSS

From the front rows of London and Paris Fashion Weeks to the Manhattan opening of Topshop, Kate Moss never falters when it comes to impressing the fashion critics.
