Three of the Best-Dressed Women of the World

The International Best Dressed List is considered as the highest honor for all those who are into men's and women's fashion. This citation was founded by American fashion public relations great Eleanor Lambert in 1940. Since then, male and female style icons from various cultures and professions have been inducted into the list. They have all displayed impeccable elegance in not just their outfits, but in their overall appeal every time they appear in public.

Some of the women in this list contributed distinctive styles that have become classics. Among these inductees are Jackie Kennedy-Onassis, Josie Natori, and Audrey Hepburn.

Jackie Kennedy-Onassis, now often called in the media as Jackie O, became an instant fashion symbol as soon as her late husband, John F. Kennedy, became president of the United States of America. 

With outfits made by renowned fashion designer Oleg Cassini, she wore dresses that dictated the trend in ladies' wear in various countries. Many women idolized her and wanted to be like her. Among her most famous outfits were the fawn coat she wore to her husband's Inauguration Day and her gown in the Inaugural gala. When you say "the Jackie O look," people automatically think of a suit consisting of a mid-knee skirt, a jacket with a notch collar, and three-quarter sleeves. It's completed with low-heeled pumps and a pillbox hat.

Josie Natori can truly be considered as a woman of fashion. She doesn't only dress great, but she also makes a great line of women's clothing. She's a Filipina fashion designer and the CEO of The Natori Company, which produces some of the world's finest high-end lingerie, sleepwear, loungewear, and underwear. Her collection, which is sold in upscale department stores in the US and other countries, is a favorite among celebrities. She is known for her simple, sleek silhouettes and bold accessories. A splash of color against a background of black is her signature look. She's also ventured into perfumes, towels, and eyewear recently.

Actress Audrey Hepburn, an inductee in the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame, is definitely one of the best-dressed women to grace the screen. In fact, the dresses she wore in two of her movies made such a huge impact that they became classic silhouettes for women with discriminating tastes in fashion. The bateau neck from the dresses she wore in Sabrina (1954) is now also known as the Sabrina neckline. Aside from this, her elegant black dress from Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) has been imitated by many and was sold for thousands of dollars in one of the auctions at Christie's.

Dressing up requires creativity and common sense. This is why you shouldn't be surprised that the people named in the International Best Dressed List are people who not only look good, but also contribute styles that have become an inspiration to many.
