A flip through Vanity Fair’s 2010 International Best-Dressed List yields some unexpected – if no less sartorially deserving -- nominees. Photo-heavy glossies staples like Tory Burch and Georgina Chapman are in the same company as bow tie-loving (and way-less-photographed) Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz (pictured above).
In a possible explanation of why individuality seems to be scoring higher than in years past, VF special correspondent Amy Fine Collins, stated this about the likes of Lady Gaga making the list: “People who make the list are individuals ...They tend to be fashion leaders, not followers. They set the trends, not follow them.”
Either way, it's the sort of eclectic style mix that's worth giving some thought—even if you're not a fan of Nora Ephron's turtlenecks.
