Barbara Walters put a date on the end of an era during this morning's broadcast of The View, when she announced plans to retire in 2014. The 83-year-old journalist, who has been covering news — and making news — for more than 50 years has interviewed everyone from Michael Jackson and Justin Bieber to Muammar Gaddafi.
But she also talked to people who were known as much for their influence in the world as for their style — like First Lady Michelle Obama. So before she signs off the air forever, we're taking a look back at a selection of her most stylish interviews, with the likes of Vogue editor Anna Wintour and Lady Gaga. Watch Walters at work, here in the gallery.
