Vanity Fair has just revealed their International Best Dressed List with a number of varied personalities. From royalty to fashion designers, first ladies and power couples and siblings, the one big qualification was, â€œexquisite self-expression.â€
Here are a few who made it on the list.
Lady Gaga the, "Dada Catholic Girl"
The magazine's September cover girl, Lady Gaga was on Vanity Fairâ€™s list. Her style was described as, â€œDada Catholic Girl.â€ The artistâ€™s wild head dresses, art-installation-like costumes and her dressing with conviction whether at an airport or at an awards show certainly exceeds the â€œself-expression,â€ qualification.
Diane Kruger Loves Chanel
Actress Diane Kruger made it to the list. She counts, â€œanything Chanel,â€ as favorite clothing items. One of Dianeâ€™s most memorable looks was the long sleeved white Calvin Klein dress she wore at the opening of the "American Woman" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute. She matched the dressâ€™ elegant and restrained genius with her graceful carriage. Other memorable looks? Whenever boyfriend Joshua Jackson is on her arm.
Carey Mulligan, "An Education," in Style
British actress Carey Mulligan exploded ontoÂ the sceneÂ after her Oscar-nominated role in, â€œAn Education.â€ Her fashion choices lean toward looks that are unexpected and not too obviously pretty. Vanity Fair described her style as, â€œexistential pixie.â€ Do they mean that like Tinkerbell reading Gabriel Marcel while looking with astonishment at her stash of pixie dust?
Michelle Obama Wears J. Crew
First lady Michelle Obama has been credited for choosing young and diverse designers. Her love of colors and prints and J. Crew has given her an accessible and relatable air. While she always looks like she puts thought and effort to her outfits, itâ€™s eliminating childhood obesity thatâ€™s at the top of her priorities.
