Alexa Chung has been named the most stylish woman of 2009.

The British television presenter, who moved to New York this year to work for MTV, topped Vogue magazine's Best Dressed of 2009, with French actress Audrey Tautou coming in second.

Alexa is a well-known lover of British fashion labels, often wearing Burberry and Mulberry and previously modelling for Vivienne Westwood.

Commenting on their decision to crown Alexa best dressed, Vogue said: "She won over the US style pundits with her quirky style and kept us on side by staying true to the formula that won her our approval in the first place."

'Sex and the City' actress Sarah Jessica Parker came third in the list, followed by 'X Factor' judges Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue in fourth and fifth place.

Kate Moss came in the list at 10th, just ahead of Lady Gaga in 11th. Other notable inclusions include Michelle Obama, Anna Friel and Beth Ditto.
