gwyneth paltrow best dressed people gi Gwyneth Paltrow named World's Best Dressed by People MagazineWith New York Fashion week wrapping up, it’s the perfect time for People to announce that it has bestowed the honor of World’s Best-Dressed Woman on none other than sometime-“Glee” guest star Gwyneth Paltrow.

Obviously Paltrow is multi-talented (and Oscar-winning!), but the People editors say that they chose her as best-dressed because of her many years experience as a fashion plate.

“Her red carpet skills are unparalleled, always arriving in unexpected, yet chic looks. Of course, it helps to have Gwynnie’s body when going for a Stella McCartney racerback gown or Prada micromini — but we can’t begrudge her that when she seems to be having so much fun with her wardrobe,” they write.

Other women honored by the mag include Kate Middleton (classic beauty), Reese Witherspoon (hot mama) and Jennifer Lawrence (rising star). We’d nominate our fave “The Vampire Diaries” hottie Nina Dobrev as rising star, but their choices are pretty spot-on. Who do you think is the world’s best-dressed woman?
