Vanity Fair's International Best-Dressed List: 17% Royalty, 100% Rich People

Vanity Fair's International Best-Dressed List was released today. Of the 42 people named, two are black: Michelle Obama and Kanye West. Seven are actors, including Daniel Craig, Brad & Angelina and Ms. Tilda Swinton. Six have famous last names or come from a noted family: i.e. Goldsmith, Trump, Clemente, Elkann, Lauder. There are a few "journalists", if you count people who work at Vogue and Matt Lauer. There is one incredibly awesome 86-year-old lady. But a whopping 17% of those listed are are royalty or dating royalty (looking at you, Kate Middleton!) The others are merely rich. A breakdown, after the jump.
