Maybe next year, Paula Abdul. You were almost named Best Dressed, according to People magazine; you just need to change everything about your outfits first.

In the end, however, the American Idol judge – and every other celebrity in Hollywood – lost out to Jennifer Aniston in this yearly poll.

The popular magazine’s annual best- and worst-dressed issue hits newsstands this Friday featuring numerous stars all given a moniker to describe their taste in couture. For example:

  • Oscar winner Halle Berry, dubbed “The Classic,” is number-two behind Aniston.
  • At number-three is “The Newcomer” Jessica Alba, 25.

Elizabeth Sporkin, People’s executive editor, said for the first time the list was picked by online readers and not the magazine’s editors. She said Aniston (“The Natural”) won by 54 percent.

“She has a fashion sense that is very accessible,” said Sporkin. “She wears jeans and T-shirts and blazers. She dresses like a regular person, and her evening wear, if you were going to an event, you would think you could really dress like her.”

Don’t worry, fellas, your gender was recognized, too. Justin Timberlake was named “Trendiest,” while English soccer star David Beckham looked best in “jacket and jeans.”

George Clooney took the honor of “best monochromatic” look.

“He’s the new Cary Grant,” Sporkin said of Clooney. “All these men are men who really pay attention and care about how they look.”
