International Best Dressed List

Yesterday, Vanity Fair released the 2008 International Best Dressed List. Notable honorees included: Future First Lady, Michelle Obama- she killed it with the Purple sheath dress and Alaia belt. Louis Vuitton Don- Kanye West, Victoria “Posh Spice Beckham, Sex and the City Star, Sarah Jessica Parker and Carine Roitfeld EIC of French Vogue and muse of Tom Ford. I totally get them but, there are a few that left me scratching my head. Novelist/ Guest judge on Law and Order, Fran Leibowitz, I work hard, really I do Ivanka Trump, The future Queen of England, Kate Middleton and my grandmother’s imaginary bf, Today Show host Matt Lauer. Now, not to say these people are fashion atrocities, but I don’t think OMG they look great, I just don’t. I do give credit to the amount of diversity on the list. In the days of Eleanor Lambert, the creator of the Best Dressed List it was only European Aristocrats and Old Money Wasps. It is cool to see African Americans, pop stars, Hollywood types as well as your standard Old Guard Elite. It proves that fashion is not dictated by money or class and that a wardrobe can be cultivated but great style is a gift one is born with!
