Vanity Fair just released the 2015 edition of the International Best-Dressed List, and in a surprising turn of events, the PM’s wife Samantha Cameron has come out on top.

It seems Sam’s ‘conservative charm’ has won over the fashionistas, as she beat familiar fashion icons such a Taylor Swift, Emma Watson and Amal Clooney.


Sam’s most notable outfit of the year was a blue Preen dress she wore to Buckingham palace. Fancy.

We’ll admit, we’ve never thought of the political figure being a fashion icon before, but we guess she has had a few good looks over the year. We’re drawing the line at Sam and Cam for best-dressed couple, though.

Tay-Tay* *was awarded 2nd place, and was praised for her ‘prep power’ style, (we’re loving the alliteration, btw Vanity Fair.) Another one of our favourite singers to make the top 10 was RiRi, who was labelled ‘sultry swagger’ (and again) and 6th place. Her favourite designers were listed as Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford, Marchesa, Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney.

The magazine has been publishing its International Best-Dressed List since it’s inception in 1940, and in the fashion world, it’s kind of a big deal.

We hope Sam’s enjoying her new-found glory!

Taylor's skirt looks like it has weird purple ivy all over it and that corset created a strange mono-boob.
