What’s in a look and what makes that look such a winning ensemble that it will get you noticed by one of Britain’s premier arbiter’s of style, Harper’s Bazzaar? Then again getting on such a best dressed list doesn’t necessarily involve being the best dressed but perhaps more so with being the most widely publicized person out there (after all let’s be honest marrying into the royal family got her square into the spotlight).

Which is exactly what the people over at Harper’s set out to do using the criterion of finding those individuals who took on British style that was effortlessly elegant as well fittingly (no pun intended) unpredictable. Perhaps then Kate Middleton’s chic choice of a custom made Alexander McQueen wedding dress with its equally flamboyant coterie and old world Victorian charm did well to capture the imagination of onlookers who must have looked on in gleeful wonder as the bride to be almost nonchalantly strutted down the aisle.

For those curious here’s Harper’s top ten list:
