Who's on your all-time best dressed on TV list?

155041__lisa_bonet_lBest-dressed lists have been all the rage this summer. EW’s cover star, new 007 Daniel Craig, is Esquire’s new No. 1, while Kanye West, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and CNN’s Anderson Cooper all made Vanity Fair’s 2006 list. But our favorite best-dressed winner so far comes from the cheeky bloggers at We Got Ways, who realize that it takes a real man — a man like Dr. Bob Newhart — to rock a wide lapel or paisley pajamas.

In fact, the old boob tube has offered us some amazing fashion icons (see: Nick at Nite), and never have television’s characters been honored with their own best-dressed list. PopWatch would like to change that.

Our first nominee: Lisa Bonet on The Cosby Show (pictured), of course.

Now you. Who’s on your list?

    Sydney Bristow, Alias. Come on people, the outfits were literally kick-ass.
    Helena Peabody, The L Word.
    Lt. Dangle, Reno 911. The shorts. The SHORTS.

  • Ed

    Valerie Cherish for her prequal to Mrs. Roper outfits. I get the feeling that Mrs. Roper dressed like V.C way before she married Stanly.

    How about Don Cheadle? He’s more movies than tv, but have you ever seen that cat look bad? Even in “Out of Site”, they had the cat in a jumpsuit and he could still carry off the look!
    On tv I always liked the suits worn by now deceased game show host Pete Tomarken. I liked his gear so much that I bought one of the suits he wore on “Press your luck”. Of course, it looked a LOT better on him than it does on me…

  • CS

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Well, don’t count the first two seasons.
    And Conan O’Brien always looks snazzy in his suits and flippy red hair.

    Soleil Moon Frye as Punky Brewster. Loved everything about her. From the converse sneekers to her hair accessories they were just so cool back in the day.

  • Cassie

    Hands down, it’s Lisa Turtle from Saved by the Bell. I didn’t realize until a few years ago that she was the best part about the show. She dressed fabulously everyday and wasn’t afraid to rock those door knocker earrings and her endless collection of matching hats.

  • Matty Matt

    Alison Kelly from Project Runway 3.
    Any of The Golden Girls.
    Dwayne Wayne from A Different World. He rocked the signature sun/spectacles which flipped up—plus, I’d tune in just to check out what sneakers he was skating. Week in week out, DW made even Sinbad’s style look bad…which, actually, was quite easy.

    How about Jennifer Aniston on Friends? Her hair practically became a must-have fashion accessory.

    Goldie Hawn
    The Monkees
