Vanity Fair wants you to be part of its International Best-Dressed List

So what would it take for the super elusive, secret Best Dressed committee to recognize that there are commoners in different pockets of the world with clear and coherent senses of style?
A contest.

Quite possibly the highest honor you can receive as a narcissistic, fashion-conscious human being is to land on Vanity Fair’s International Best-Dressed List.

The feature, now in its 73d year, includes different types of chosen ones – editors, actors and actresses, artists, designers, socialites, politicos, royals, and other rich people. Previous honorees include Stacey Bendet Eisner of Alice & Olivia, actress Diane Kruger, Kate Middleton, Tory Burch of her eponymous brand, the Gyllenhaal siblings, and Martin Scorsese.

So what does it take for the super elusive, secret Best-Dressed committee to recognize that there are commoners in different pockets of the world with clear and coherent style senses?

A contest.

In an interview with the New York Times published Thursday, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter laments over how many actresses today lack originality, due to their meteoric dependency on stylists (i.e. June Ambrose, Rachel Zoe) and the designer brands they represent (ex. Marion Cotillard for Dior).

That’s why he’s opening up the 2013 list to users who submit their photos to vf.com/bestdressed. One man and one woman will be selected and published alongside the world’s best dressed in the publication’s annual September style issue.

“People who come into the list in this way will probably have more interesting looks than those who come the traditional way,” Carter says.

Enter for your chance to grace the glossy.
