Being featured on Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed list is a pre-requisite for any starlet worth her red carpet Louboutins. Bringing together the world’s most stylish men and women – albeit with a slight bias towards American taste – VF’s Best Dressed come from the glitzy worlds of music, fashion and movies.
Jessica Chastain & Duchess of Cambridge Vanity Fair covers
Proving once again that she’s not just any old royal, Kate Middleton tops this year’s list – for the third year in a row, people! VF’s list judges were impressed with Kate’s high low mixture – Christopher Kane to LK Bennett – as well as her tendency to promote British brands – most obviously with Alexander McQueen.
Other names to get the VF nod include our favourite flame haired actress Jessica Chastain, Mission Impossible- Ghost Protocol actress Lea Seydoux, eco-fashion’s poster girl and boy Colin and Livia Firth, Farida Khelfa – the new ambassador for the revived Schiaparelli label, Brit model Poppy Delevigne and Diane Kruger – no introduction required.
Amongst the lads on the list there was a strong Brit presence with Eddie Redmayne, Ozwald Boteng, Richard E Grant and Prince Harry all notching up mentions. Other stylish blokes include Jay-Z, photographer Bill Cunningham and Mr Gisele, Tom Brady.
And aside from our Kate and Prince Hazza, royals did pretty well this year with appearances from HRH Princess Alexandra of Greece, HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, 4th in line to Monaco’s throne Charlotte Casiraghi and H.H Sheika Moza Bint Nasser of Qatar.
VF also treated us with a selection of different covers for the issue and we cant quite work out which one we prefer the most…!
