Winfrey among world's most fashionable



Oprah Winfrey - talk show host, actress and magazine editor - has a new title to add to her resume: one of the world's most fashionable women.

Winfrey appears for the first time on Vanity Fair's 2004 International Best-Dressed List, which is being released today.

The host of The Oprah Winfrey Show says Jackie Onassis and Coco Chanel are her fashion icons, and picks Gianfranco Ferre - who created the silvery gown she wore to the Oscars - as her favorite designer.

Also among the 10 women on the list are actress Cate Blanchett, writer-director Sofia Coppola, model Kate Moss and Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer, Estee Lauder's vice president for global advertising.

Not surprisingly, soccer player David Beckham - an international fashion icon whose style has inspired Dolce & Gabbana - made the men's top 10 list. Among those joining him are actors George Clooney and Jude Law and news anchors Brian Williams of NBC and Anderson Cooper of CNN. The annual list - which originated in the '20s and gained prominence under the guidance of fashion maven Eleanor Lambert, who died in October - will now appear in Vanity Fair magazine, starting with its April issue.
