Emma Stone has rounded off a fantastic year by being named the world's best dressed woman of 2012 in two leading fashion magazines.

The Amazing Spiderman actress was handed the accolade by both style bible Vogue across the pond and the UK edition of InStyle - beating Kate Middleton to the crown.

The 24-year-old screen darling featured on Vogue’s cover to celebrate, with her name appearing above a whole host of America's fashion elite – including Kristen Stewart, First Lady Michelle Obama and Jennifer Lawrence.

Meanwhile, over in the UK Emma pipped the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, Victoria Beckham and Diane Kruger to sit first place in a Top 10 Best Dressed of 2012 list.

And while we're sure the actress is taking the news on the chin, fashion critics won't be at all surprised by her accolades.

Emma, who is dating Spiderman star Andrew Garfield off screen, has been dazzling the fash pack for some time now - most recently at the Annual CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Awards.

The former redhead showed off her style credentials as she mingled with the likes of Alexa Chung, editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and Twilight star Ashley Greene on the red-carpet - plumping for a Burberry midnight-blue corset with peplum detailing and a contrasting emerald-green skirt.

Tell us what YOU think of Emma making the list over on Twitter, now.
