Carine Roitfeld, Christy Turlington, Karl Lagerfeld Among Vanity Fair's 2008 Best-Dressed

Carine Roitfeld, Christy Turlington, Karl Lagerfeld Among Vanity Fair's 2008 Best-Dressed

>> The September 2008 issue of Vanity Fair may not have given us the supermodel cover we were hoping for, but in exchange, it does give us the annual International Best-Dressed List.  The fashion industry was well-repped, with designers (Karl Lagerfeld, Stacey Bendet), models (Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Christy Turlington), editors (Carine Roitfeld, Alexandra Kotur), and even a muse or two (Tilda Swinton, Iris Apfel, Fran Lebowitz) all making the cut. 

But perhaps even more fun than perusing the list is browsing the quippy reasons Vanity Fair gave for picking each person.  A choice few, below:

Alexandra Kotur, Vogue style director, "Because [she's a] Kotur de force."

Carine Roitfeld, "Because she's the rogue editor-in-chief."

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy "Because we like her French twist."

Christy Turlington, "Because she put the chic in sirshasana."

Fran Lebowitz, 2008 Hall of Fame inductee.

Iris Apfel, "Because she's the Apfel of our eye."

Karl Lagerfeld, "Because the Kaiser is wiser."

Katherine Ross, Senior VP, communications, for LVMH North America, "Because she turns the heat on in Vuitton."

Lapo Elkann, "Because he's in the Lapo of luxury."

Stacey Bendet, "Because she's Ms. Fancy-Pants."

Tilda Swinton, "Because she's a great Scot."
