Much of what goes into such interfaces is the artwork, which is best done with some graphic program such as Paint Shop Pro or PhotoShop to create image files that are then loaded via resource libraries. Being able to make them interchangeable requires a technique known as "skinning"; try doing a web search for "skins" or "programming skins".

Besides, none of the winamp interfaces I've seen are beautiful.  They've all been pretty horid, which is why I gave up using it.  I hope you do better.
