This week, Vanity Fair announced its 2011 International Best Dressed List. No surprise, the world is in agreement that Kate Middleton is the fairy princess of frippery. But, in typical Vanity Fair fashion they always throw in a couple weird picks/people you’ve never heard of who are simply on the list to make you feel uncultured, poor and American.
1. H.H. Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser of Qatar
When you think of “best-dressed” does the name H.H. Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser of Qatar come to mind? If you said yes, stop trying to act so smart, you did not. Anyway, a quick Google image search confirms that she is in fact a bombshell and more than deserving of VF’s honor.
2. Tilda Swinton
I really wish they would stop trying to push Tilda Swinton on me. I get it. She’s androgynous and wears Lanvin all the time. I’m never a fan of her red carpet choices.
3. Stavros Niarchos
Sound familiar? Remember Paris Hilton’s Greek shipping heir ex-boyfriend? Well, that’s him. Apparently, he’s still hanging around, looking hot and spending his mountains of money on some pretty tight threads.

Here, a few people (and characters) I’d put on my list:
Rachel Zoe and husband Rodger Berman
Gossip Girls Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen
