Vanity Fair

While I can’t dispute most of these. Actually, a few of them I’m not sure I’ve heard of. But one notable exception has to be Helen Mirren? It’s not easy to look fabulous at that age you know? It doesn’t just happen!

Apparently the list is based not only on physical appearance, nor is it in any order of style greatness.

“It’s not just about how much someone spends, it is about having real elegance, style, and individuality,” Vanity Fair special correspondent Amy Fine Collins said in an interview.

The September issue of the magazine, which hits national newsstands on August 7, gave nods to musical, literary and philanthropic icons alike, whether known for their brains or their beauty.

The magazine said it searched beyond the silver screen and fashion runways to select 61 stars of style for the list.

I really like how diverse the list is, including not just celebrities who are famous for fashion. Interestingly, the list has been held annually since 1940, and over 1,000 people vote. They are retailers, editors, fashion designers, restaurant owners and hairdressers.

Picture note by Celebitchy: Thanks to JustJared for the header image of the Beckhams arriving in Italy for the TomKat wedding. Also I know it’s in alphabetical order, but it doesn’t seem like they should even be on this list, not to mention first. Thanks to PRPhotos for the other images.
