The Nice List

Vogue recently released its list of the top 10 best dressed people for 2008, and most of the outfits are feminine and flattering. But no. 7 made me raised my eyebrows.

Diane Kruger pulls off the outfit well, but it looks so masculine, with the white dress shirt and black bow tie, and it doesn't look any different from outfits that men have been wearing for centuries. The outfit's not even a unique take on an old concept; the combination of the black high-waisted skirt and white shirt reminds me of something worn for years by receptionists and waitresses.

If the world's top-circulated fashion magazine wants to laud the German actress' sense of style this year, they should've picked something more fashion-forward that celebrates the differences between men and women, rather than blurring the line between them.
