May 29, 2011, (Sawf News) - The year is just half over, but already Hollywood stars have given Sawfnews.com editors reason to drool, faint, or gaze in admiration of their elegant style. Here are our top ten picks so far of whom we think are the best examples of "glam".

10. Angelina Jolie is famous. Not only for her Oscar-winning turn in "Girl, Interrupted", but for making a splash on the red carpet in her favorite neutral colors. With a few exceptions, she chooses them for everything from Cannes premieres to taking son Pax for shopping. The 35-year-old actress now has her own line of jewelry, proving Jolie is a woman of many talents. In this chocolate brown Versace Atelier, she shows us that neutral is anything but boring.

9. Selena, Selena, Selena. Is there anything you don't look good in? This eighteen-year-old stunner loves to flash her toned gams in everything from a pair of short shorts to cropped gowns when strolling the red rug. What's best about her style is the way she manages to be trendy and chic but still appropriate for her teenage years. With taste like that, we can't blame Justin Bieber for falling in love with her.

8. If there's two things 28-year-old Carrie Underwood is known for, it's her signature blond tresses and uber-short hemlines. The 5x Grammy winner likes her microminis and glittery sandals. What's special about country music's sweetheart is the way she can wear small tight clothes and never look anything but classy. Sing on, Carrie.

7. The Milester's had quite a year with her folks getting back together and reunion with boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, but this Disney star never lets the spotlight get to her. Indulging in her love of scarves, boots, and jewelry, the 18-year-old knows how to look put together without trying too hard. Her hair always worn down, the actress-singer can grace a film premiere or a family outing with equal flair.


And like Selena Gomez, she's not afraid to show that toned bod in a bikini either.

6. Emma Watson's had us enthralled since the very first Harry Potter flick. But once her role as Hermione ended, the perky brunette couldn't stop casting spells on the red rug and at airports worldwide. This 21-year-old English rose likes to flaunt her perfect skin and petite frame with pale colored, flirtatious frocks, dark leggings, and heels. The former Brown girl proves that beauty and brains can coexist. With such a great track record, we can't wait to see her next film premiere.

5. One word to describe Taylor Swift and her sartorial style would be feminine. Whether it's stepping out of her five-star hotel on tour, posing on the red carpet, or shopping in town, the country singer and CoverGirl model always makes sure she looks the part. On the carpet, she's been showing lemon and flesh-toned numbers by Saab and Mendel some serious love. Along with winged eyeliner and her trademark red lips. In her off-carpet moments, the twenty-one-year old songbird loves skirts with ruffles, heels with bows, and hair worn in curls. Jake Gyllenhaal, what were you thinking?

4. When you've won Oscar, the world comes to expect high-voltage style from you. And of course, Nicole Kidman delivers every time. The 43-year-old mom to four has leaned towards reds, whites, and blacks in red carpet events, and always wears her hair in the most flattering style for the occasion. A woman whose beauty could easily be called ethereal, Kidman plays up her luminous skin with soft eye colors and red or pink lips. Topping off her outfit is usually a minimal amount of jewelry, which sets off her outfit without going over the top. This is Hollywood style at its best.

3. Fellow Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon knows what it means to dazzle on-and-off carpet. For formal events, the thirty-five-year old and recent newlywed adores short, skin-baring frocks and peeptoe heels which make the most of her shapely arms and legs. Her blonde hair and light eyes are played up by pink cheeks and lips. Casually speaking, the Water for Elephants star loves butter-soft leather boots, cardigans, and oversized glasses, all of which take comfort to a new level.

2. The beauty and grace that are actress Halle Berry are further enhanced by her immaculate fashion sense. A designer's dream, Berry has been known to flaunt her figure in plunging necklines and dresses with an eye to detail. Unlike most of the other actresses, she often likes patterned dresses as well. Her cropped haircut is styled differently for every event, with makeup and jewelry kept to a minimum. The 44-year-old Monster's Ball star likes tight-fitting clothes that emphasize her enviable silhouette.

1. Last but not least, is Kate Middleton. Now Duchess of Cambridge, the 29-year-old Brit had most of Hollywood (and the world) watching as she walked down the aisle of Westminster Abbey in her Sarah Buxton wedding dress. When not as a working royal, Kate sports leggings, skinny jeans, and ballet flats in neutral colors with very little makeup. The slim future queen leans towards conservative suits in solid colors for formal events. Footwear of choice would be boots or low-heeled shoes which make it easy for touring. With many of her more-affordable outfits selling out and people requesting the "Kate" hairstyle, Tinseltown has nothing on her!
