Who Topped The Vanity Fair Best Dressed List This Year?

by Jeanne Sutton
06th Aug 2015

Can we get a drumroll? A red carpet? An ambassador role at some of industry’s most prestigious fashion houses? The Vanity Fair Best Dressed List for 2015 has arrived and we’re sure some people are raging they weren’t included. Others, like Rihanna, are probably toasting their risk-taking ?naked? dresses on a beach somewhere. We’re sure Amal Clooney is working today with a very smug grin while simultaneously defending a bunch of human rights. A lot of people who didn’t vote for the Tories in the last UK general election are probably pursing their lips at David Cameron’s wife Samantha ruling the list of Best Dressed Women.

When it comes to men, Bill Nighy’s suits are given the recognition they deserve and Our Very Own Michael Fassbender made the Hollywood list. Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter top the couples list, and the most upper middle class look possible list while they’re at it. FKA Twigs is rightfully declared an ?original? and the amount of royals in existence around the world with credit cards will have you wondering if various revolutions actually did happen.
