Most Stylish TV Characters

file

Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl

Blair Waldorf, in her obsessively perfect preppy-meets-sexy outfits, may have single-handedly resurrected the craze for headbands.
file

Gabrielle Solís in Desperate Housewives

Her plunging necklines and high heels destroyed the "frumpy housewife" stereotype.
file

Summer Roberts in The OC

Summer's brand of relaxed California-cool was easily as much of a draw as her adorable on-screen love, Seth.
file

Blossom in Blossom

The quirky style, the oversize dresses, and of course, the wild hats—it was all just endlessly endearing.
file

Joan Holloway in Mad Men

Joan, in her curve-hugging outfits, is the definition of a bombshell.
file

Buffy Summers in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

In bright minis and with perfectly coiffed hair, Buffy (far left) managed to dispatch a seemingly endless army of demons while looking impossibly put together.
file

Samantha Stephens in Bewitched

Her spot-on '60s ensembles were always topped off by loosely curled hair and a perfectly applied swipe of eyeliner.
file

Lucy Ricardo in I Love Lucy

Lucy always stole the screen—whether in an iconic '50s housedress (complete with apron and pearls) or one of her many wacky costumes (remember Carmen Miranda?).
file

Lisa Turtle in Saved by the Bell

The epitome of over-the-top '80s fashion. There wasn't a wild pattern, color, or outfit that the show's resident style maven Lisa Turtle couldn't rock.
file

Betty Draper in Mad Men

The costume designers on this show sparked a trend at least as big as any runway designers: The tailored suits, swing coats, elegant coifs, and all-around general crispness are perfection.
file

Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl

Blake Lively's uptown-girl wardrobe is sleek and sophisticated, with slim denim, knee-high boots, and tons of layers.
file

Mary Tyler Moore in Mary Tyler Moore

Her classic, swingy, just-a-bit-sexy-but-still-utterly-professional look has stood the test of time. We like to think that if Michael Kors had been designing back then, her closet would have been filled with his pieces.
file

Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City

With outfits that ranged from gorgeously glamorous to undeniably wacky, she took chances, mixed aesthetics, and celebrated fashion like no one else, before or since.
file

Kelly, Jill, and Sabrina in Charlie's Angels

Sexy California style—from their endlessly layered hair to their tan-emphasizing, skin-revealing, body-celebrating outfits.
file

Angela Chase in My So-Called Life

The only way '90s grunge ever made it onto network TV: Claire Danes' drugstore-dyed red hair, Dr. Martens, pilled sweaters, and wildly appealing angst.
file

Amanda Tanen in Ugly Betty

The only TV or movie "fashion editor" who really, truly gets the look right.
file

Denise Huxtable in The Cosby Show

Lisa Bonet managed to pull together all the mismatched prints, vivid colors, and oversize separates of the '80s and still come out looking fantastic.
file

Addison Montgomery in Private Practice

Kate Walsh's character has a chic, West Coast style—graphic prints, formfitting dresses, bold accessories, punches of color—she always looks sexily crisp.
file

Laurie Partridge in The Partridge Family

Between her pin-straight, long-and-glossy hair, and her skinny sweaters with leg-lengthening bell-bottoms, Susan Dey's '70s style perfectly balanced innocence and all-out hotness.
file

Ally McBeal in Ally McBeal

Calista Flockhart's short skirts and sky-high strappy heels made lawyering (previously infamous for its singular unsexiness) look surprisingly hot.
file

Ann Marie in That Girl

The poufy/flippy bob, the Courrèges-mod outfits, the lipstick, the flats, and the major eyelashes added up to Marlo Thomas' kicky signature look.
