People's Best & Worst Dressed of 2011 issue comes out tomorrow, and we doubt anyone would be surprised by their pick of the top ten best dressed women. Kate Middleton made it, and so did Jessica Alba (whom they've dubbed the "Maternity Clotheshorse"), Jennifer Lopez ("The Rule Breaker"), Ginnifer Goodwin ("The Hipster), and Blake Lively ("The Risk Taker). There's also a rundown of "burning hot fashion plates," which we're taking to mean young people, because the oldest person on there is 22-year-old Emma Watson, and the youngest is 13-year-old Elle Fanning.
As for the worst dressed: In a feature called "Where Have They Gone Wrong?" a no-doubt thorough analysis has been conducted of crappy outfits worn by other no-brainers, like Snookie, Ke$ha, and Johnny Weir.
Oh, and Kristen Bell won the best ponytail category.
