Simply stunning: The groundbreaking gamine -- first female solo anchor in network news -- who's lived in the city for almost 20 years, admires the artful way New Yorkers, "like Parisians," can throw on "a very simple outfit and look chic." She describes her own style as "tailored and elegant with a twist."

Anchor pieces: Couric's can't-miss classic outfit is a black cashmere turtleneck with black ballet flats and gold hoop earrings. "I'm a J. Crew junkie!" says the down-to-earth dresser. "I also like Max Mara and the Gap. I'm very into Gap skinny jeans this fall."

Beautiful cause: "I would walk on hot coals for Carmen," says Couric about Carmen Marc Valvo. "His tailoring is beautiful, and I also really love him as a person. He's a colon cancer survivor and has been really incredible in helping us with our efforts to increase awareness and raise money."

"I like to shop with my daughters. They both have a lot of style, and what's fun is that we all kind of wear the same shoe size, so we actually share sometimes."
