Kevin Costner got rave reviews in his bomber jacket, Joan Collins' bare-shoulder look was "fabulous, elegant, lovely," and Britain's Prince William got a nod of approval for the little pleats on his pants.
The three were among the celebrities listed by People magazine as the year's best-dressed.
This week's People also gave worst-dressed citations. George Bush's suit and tie were "boring." William's mother, Princess Diana, for her blue jean and T-shirt combo.
Talk show host Morton Downey Jr., one of seven judges, said he is "sick of royalty that tries to look like common folk."
Other judges included TV's extraterrestrial ALF and country singer Tanya Tucker.
