Vanity Fair‘s 2014 Style Stars Revealed

vanity-fair-best-dressed

Vanity Fair’s annual International Best-Dressed List was released today and the 2014 version included a healthy dose of well-deserving contenders (Lupita Nyong’o, Pharrell, Cate Blanchett, and Benedict Cumberbatch among them), fashion professionals like Natalie Massenet of Net-a-Porter and Elie Top of Lanvin, plus a few names that left us scratching our heads.

Royalty was on trend for this year’s list, which includes the Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, and of course, Kate Middleton. With this year’s list, Middleton joins the Hall of Fame, along with Alice + Olivia’s Stacey Bendet and Karl Lagerfeld. (VF also compiled an accompanying roster of Lagerfeld’s muses over the years—check it out here).

But there’s another, lesser-known royal on the roster who caught our attention: the King of Bhutan. The ruler of the last Himalayan kingdom, along with musician St. Vincent and novelist Donna Tartt (a favorite of the fashion set these days), made up the most eccentric and interesting group of them all, the “Originals.” Style icons for this trio run the gamut, from Louise Brooks to Harold from Harold and Maude to Albert Einstein. The mysterious King of Bhutan lives in Samteling Palace, and his most notable ensemble of 2014 was a “traditional burgundy knee-length gho to celebrate the April opening of the Panbang Bridge.”
