Vanessa Williams

A dozen years ago she lost her Miss America title under a cloud of controversy. But that was a past life. Today the 33-year-old actress and singer deserves to be crowned not only for her accomplishments but for her spectacular style. Evoking a long-gone era of Hollywood glamor, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Eraser costar (and seven-time Grammy nominee) embellishes her star power with high-wattage fabrics that dazzle our judges. She “knows the perfect outfit for each occasion,” says actress Holly Robinson Peete. “She’s confident and sexy, and takes care of all the details.” Inside Edition host Deborah Norville is equally admiring: “A great figure and three kids. What’s not to love?” Costume designer Mona May can’t think of anything. “Taste and money and a body,” she says. “She’s got it all.” Mistakes go largely unnoticed anyway. Declares MTV veejay Idalis DeLeon: “The girl could put on a paper sack and look fabulous.”
