Vanity Fair’s annual International Best-Dressed List was released today and the 2014 version included a healthy dose of well-deserving contenders (Lupita Nyong’o, Pharrell, Cate Blanchett, and Benedict Cumberbatch among them), fashion professionals like Natalie Massenet of Net-a-Porter and Elie Top of Lanvin, plus a few names that left us scratching our heads.
Royalty was on trend for this year’s list, which includes the Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, and of course, Kate Middleton. With this year’s list, Middleton joins the Hall of Fame, along with Alice + Olivia’s Stacey Bendet and Karl Lagerfeld. (VF also compiled an accompanying roster of Lagerfeld’s muses over the years—check it out here).
But there’s another, lesser-known royal on the roster who caught our attention: the King of Bhutan. The ruler of the last Himalayan kingdom, along with musician St. Vincent and novelist Donna Tartt (a favorite of the fashion set these days), made up the most eccentric and interesting group of them all, the “Originals.” Style icons for this trio run the gamut, from Louise Brooks to Harold from Harold and Maude to Albert Einstein. The mysterious King of Bhutan lives in Samteling Palace, and his most notable ensemble of 2014 was a “traditional burgundy knee-length gho to celebrate the April opening of the Panbang Bridge.”

Barbie is paying tribute to Hollywood starlet-turned-princess Grace Kelly with three collectible dolls as part of the Barbie Collector series.

The fashion world went nuts when Oprah scored an on-camera interview with Ralph Lauren (the designer’s first in decades) during the final days of her show. As it turns out, that was just a warm-up. On October 24, the two will take the stage at Lincoln Center for a benefit gala, which Oprah will host and lead a conversation about Lauren’s life and career. [WWD]
