Nims’ Pick – The 2015 Vanity Fair International Best Dressed List

1
408

The Vanity Fair Magazine Best Dressed list is one of, if not the, most anticipated fashion list because it cuts across a wide range of individuals in diverse fields not to mention they have been putting it together since 1940.

This year is no different and with Taylor Swift on the cover of the their September issue, speculations began to build on which celebrities made, and didn’t make the much awaited list.

Finally it’s here and as usual the list of best dressers is divided into several categories – Women, Men, Couples, Originals, Professionals, Hollywood and the Vanity Fair Hall of Fame.

I’m not totally familiar with every one who made the list and had to wonder about some of the choices but there are a few that get my approval –

WOMEN

Amal Clooney

Amal Ramzi Clooney is a London-based Lebanese-British lawyer, activist, and author. She is also the wife of veteran actor, George Clooney and stunned us with her style in the run up to the nuptials.

Taylor Swift

American singer-songwriter, global pop star and actress, Taylor Alison Swift was no surprise. Her flawless looks, model stature and youthful style make her very easy on the eye.

Rihanna

My personal favorite. Barbadian singer, actress, and fashion designer Robyn Rihanna Fenty, known professionally as Rihanna,  made her debut on the list. With a fearless approach to fashion and her Fashion Icon award from the CFDA, she is original and a trend setter.
