Curious to find out which gentlemen with style made it into Vanity Fair Mag’s 2010 Intnl Best Dressed List?
There’s an eclectic feel to this year’s ranking of the style elite. But, as always, the list is about individual taste, not fashion trends, from Pharrell Williams to Alec Baldwin to little known NY based actor/jeweller and eccentric Waris Ahluwalia.
Their individual passion for making a difference on the planet is crystal clear. Scorcese wants to restore old films for the World Cinema Foundation. Javier Bardem’s cause is the ‘Enough Project’ working against genocide in Congo and Beckham is determined that to help eradicate deaths by malaria in Africa by 2015.
The labels they wear are diverse: Prada, Gucci, Norton & Sons of Savile Row, Ferragamo, Piaget, Armani, Joseph Abboud, shoes by Jean-Michel Cazabat and George Esquivel, watches by ‘Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Contemporaine’ and ‘Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Carbon Concept’ and good old Vintage Patek Philippe and John Galliano’s vintage rose-gold Rolex, circa 1943.
Only one real through line emerges: their exquisite self-expression and their curiously similar bent towards Steve McQueen, the ultimate celluloid rebel, as their style idol.
Here’s the breakdown of the gents who made the cut (not all of them, just the MSP favs) and more importantly what their style ethos is all about.
