"Politics may be tougher than ever, but Obama has wowed along the campaign trail with confidence, in polished looks that bring to mind a famous former first lady," wrote People in an apparent reference to Jacqueline Kennedy.

At 44, the tall, athletic former lawyer was the most senior woman on the magazine's annual list.

"Sticking mainly to favorite hometown designers like Maria Pinto, who crafted her sleek purple sheath, Obama has also tried new looks by Isabel Toledo and jeweler Tom Binns for campaign fund-raisers," the magazine wrote.

The list also includes Barbados-born singer Rihanna, pop star Fergie from the "Black Eyed Peas" and Oscar winners Gwyneth Paltrow and Charlize Theron, as well as the star of "Sex and the City," Sarah Jessica Parker.
