when i was young i used to wait with great anticipation for the annual most beautiful, best dressed and most eligible lists in my mother’s town and country, harper’s bazaar and vogue magazines. as superficial as it may seem, i loved them and i still do- so why not create my own list!
i love fashion, beauty and style! i’m obsessed with all things chic and glamorous! and i’m motivated by and crave people, places and things that are unique, undiscovered, special and interesting! i guess that’s why i love a list- an opportunity to edit, highlight, draw attention to what i admire and love!
i love the international factor of this list- france, spain, brazil, england, argentina, italy, norway, sweden, the dominican republic and america are all beautifully represented. that’s why i love this list!
there are more men on this list for a reason, women were highlighted in last week’s 1st annual year of chic best dressed list, if you didn’t see it, you must here. a very few special ladies are on both!
this international list is about individuals who ignite a room, must’s to know, ones to watch, the it list! as a reminder ”to whom much is given much is required”- i expect a lot from my it list- let’s see what 2012 has in store!
