"Inevitably, we're overflowing with ideas, photos, and candidates -- and there just isn't room for all of it," Vogue's style director Alexandra Kotur, who edited the $12.98 stand-alone magazine, explained in a statement. "So, this year, we decided to create a special issue devoted just to the Best Dressed."
Highlighted as the Top 10 Best Dressed of 2010 are the following celebrities and their Vogue-appointed sartorial identifiers: "The Bombshell" Blake Lively (who graces the cover in plunging gold Reed Krakoff frock), "Screen Siren" Marion Cottillard, "The Independent" Michelle Obama, "American Beauty" Jessica Biel, "Street Cool" Alexa Chung, "Haute Bohemian" Sarah Jessica Parker, "Conscious Chic" Liya Kebede, "Free Spirit" Carey Mulligan, "Neo-Classist" Shala Monroque, and "The Visionary" Lady Gaga.
The issue also includes the Top Fashion Trends of 2010, the Best Dressed Couples (Angelina and Brad and Sienna and Jude get shout-outs), and the Most Stylish Women of the Decade, of which Kate Moss receives tip-top honors.
"No one has had more influence for the past decade on the way women have dressed than Kate Moss," Kotur says in the magazine. "At every moment Kate Moss has looked chic and cool."
Do you think Vogue got it right: Is Moss the most stylish woman of the decade, and do the other ten ladies belong on the Best Dressed of 2010 list?
