People has released their annual Best Dressed listed, and some of our favorite stars have earned top marks. Jennifer Aniston was called out for chic, all-American taste (like this draped Donna Karan), while Jessica Alba was noted for her always-effortless mix of casual pieces with more fancy, edgy ones. Softly waved hair, for example, tones down the high-fashion, hard-edge of Alba’s sparkling Balmain dress. And Zoe Saldana was noted for her impeccable, always dramatic red-carpet choices, such as this stunning RM by Roland Mouret gown. For the complete list of stars, visit PeopleStyleWatch.com.

Name the pair the Blake, naturally. “It was insane,” Lively added. “It’s my greatest accomplishment.” Watch the clip of Lively discussing her new Louboutin after the jump. More
