Kristen Stewart has been named as the best dressed woman in the world following a poll carried out by Glamour magazine.

The Twilight actress has regularly divided the critics for her fashion choices, as she regularly chooses to shy away from the statement gowns worn by many of her contemporaries to awards ceremonies in favour of something more relaxed.

However, her style has proven to be a big hit with readers of the fashion magazine in the UK, who rated her outfits ahead of those of fellow young actress Emma Watson and Victoria Beckham, who is now often pictured wearing her own designs.

Kristen recently showcased her laid-back look when she attended an event hosted by Paul McCartney wearing a blue skirt and white blouse topped off with a black blazer and accessorised with a simple black bracelet and pendant necklace.

It was a double victory for Kristen, as she was also named as part of the best dressed couple alongside her boyfriend Robert Pattinson.
