Katie Couric & Diane Sawyer—It's A Newscaster Style Showdown

The nightly news just got a whole lot more stylish!!

Katie and Diane, you’re both pros when it comes to bringing serious style into your professional looks, both on and off camera! And with Diane Sawyer taking over for Charlie Gibson (staring tonight!) on ABC’s World News going head-to-head with Katie Couric on CBS Evening News, you can expect to receive your news in style from these leading ladies of primetime! Both Katie and Diane stick to modern working woman basics, (from colorful tops and chic suits to blazers and knee-high boots).

So, who do you think will look better behind the news desk? We turned to the experts, celebrity stylist Robert Verdi and John Barrett, owner of John Barrett Salon in NYC to get their take on the anchor lady face-off!

Robert thinks both ladies are super stylish! “Diane knows how to look professional without ever losing the sex appeal and Katie knows how to mix fashion with her professional position…when it comes landscape of news anchors these two women have more style than most,” he says. “They’re to news anchors what Michelle Obama is to first ladies.”

John Barrett also thinks both ladies share fabulous fashion sense, “These women are great American style icons,” he says. “Diane’s hair is looking really great at the moment…as far as Katie’s is concerned I always like her hair longer but her color is sheer perfection right now!”
