Katie on

Tilda Swinton! You’ve got be joking.

emm t on

Kate Middleton – you’ve got to be kidding.
She only wears cheap clothes and basically only in black and white.

Sarah on

Sarah Jessica Parker deserves this recognition 100%. She’s always super cute and glam 24/7.

marion on

WHERE’S KATIE HOLMES RIGHTFUL PLACE ON THE LIST?

JULIANNA on

WHAT ABOUT MILEY CYRUS?!

Mary on

emm t, just because one wears “cheap” clothing does not mean that they cannot be well-dressed!

Spending lots of money of clothes does not guarantee style. It all about how you present your clothes and how you express yourself.

Anyhow, I don’t think Kate Middleton wears “cheap” clothing. Affordable, yes, but not “cheap”.

Eugenia on

I agree! Katie Holmes should be on the list.

That girl has got great taste, she has really matured in her look.

I think she should be on here 2.

BB on

Tom didn’t approve of Katie being on the list.

emm t on

Mary – kate middleton wears cheap clothing.
her taste is not refined. she needs someone to help her pick out her clothes.

emm t on

mary – almost forgot…..that’s why they call her kate middleclass!

nunya on

tilda swinton? wtf?

ash on

rachel bilson?

moggy on

I agree with emm t.

Kate Middleton needs someone with good taste to help her in selecting her clothes!

It’s usually black and white, but if she wears a long dress, it’s usually a garish color. PLEASE HELP KATE MIDDLECLASS.

Bee on

Where is posh she is a style icon. Tilda Swinton that is such a joke.

Lise on

Yes for Carla Bruni, SJP and Angie but where is Cate Blanchett?

Katie Holmes dresses like she was 10 years older than she is ans as for Posh, you have to be kidding me!

AuRevoir on

I think it’s right not to place either Posh or Katie on the list: everytime they seems to put TOO MUCH effort in what they wear, they try too hard, they don’t feel (or look) relaxed.
Middleton knows how to wear not splurging too much money, that’s ispiring. Money doesn’t mean style!
I feel kate moss is missing, even if she disappeared a bit in the last time, she’s still an icon!
Carla Bruni is definitely STUNNING, even when she dress down she looks dropped out from a runway!
Alexa Chung could be there, she’s stylish and edgy!

Hanah on

where’s johnny depp? where’s rihanna? and most of all where’s katie holmes?

globalina on

I totally agree with SJP and Carla Bruni but Tilda Swinton? She wears bags..ugly ones! Eeww! Don’t know why she’s on the list. And katie holmes shoudl be on the list: I agree!

This is the list of best dressed, not the most addicted on fashion. Style is not about following the fashion, it is about you making your own fashion. Tilda of course dresses in her very own style and is not easy to swallow.

Posh, Katie etc. are no style icons yet and maybe never (well Katie might – Posh needs a miracle). Posh maybe expensive in money, but she is cheap in style, if you understand what I mean. Kate Middleton – if she wears the cheap labels – is in that case her opposite. Very few women of here age have that refained style.

Heather on

I really love Charlize Theron’s style. I think she was more deserving then some women on that list. Vanity Fair seems to favor the polished business look rather than the “red carpet/formal” look.

Heather on

Just a comment about the comment regarding Kate Middleton’s clothing. I don’t think expense should be the reason to kick someone off a best dressed list. Yea, usually the more expensive something is the better it is, but that is not always the case. I think her style fits perfectly with everyone else Vanity Fair had on that list for the women (except for a few like SJP, who is a different style).

Carol Soltys on

Posh is a very lovely woman, however, the no smile face is getting very old. Can’t someone tell her a funny story once in a while. Does the poor woman have some kind of a problem? It seems to me that the life she leads should make her very happy. Healthy children, handsome husband. Smile a little, Victoria. You will like the feeling/

Tina on

how bout lauren conrad she works so hard creating beautiful outfits just to go the post office so she definately should have a spot on that list !
