I think Kate Middleton is a boring choice who doesn't seem at all creative with what she wears and although Brad and Angelina may be a beautiful couple, I think their dress choices are a bit dull as well. Carla Bruni and Carine Roitfeld are wonderful dressers though! And no one can beat Lagerfeld!

Some I agree with: Daniel Craig, SJP, Kate Middleton. But some are just shockers: Michelle Obama, Kanye West, Tilda Swinton. I don't know, this sure is an eclectic mash of people.

I agree, basically, but I think VF should make a rule that you can only be on the list once in your life, because a few were on it last year and I'm sure even before that. And...yay Tilda!!!

@ partysugar: I used to know the medina brothers. Even sexier in person! And FYI: They arn't sons of a Spanish aristocrat. They ARE spanish aristocrats. Raf. is the Duque de Feria. Their mother is Nati Abascal (famous spanish model, only really known here for being in a Woody Allen movie) and their father was a bullfighter.

I haven't seen enough of Michelle Obama or Fran Lebowitz but Kate Middleton is WAY overrated in my opinion. She dresses boring and bland not to mention mature for her age. If I didn't know she was 25-26 I would guess 29-30. I've never really considered Ivanka Trump before... That's an interesting one. I don't like Tilda Swinton's fashion at all... she definitely an original though, I'll gve her that! The ones I agree with most on this list are the men.

I dont like it when they put political figures on these kinds of lists, is that an attempt to make the list relevant? Or the person?

YAY for Tilda Swinton. She clearly has a style ALL her own, and she does it with style and grace. And she is 100% GORGEOUS in my eyes. Love her to the MAX!!!
