Start drafting an international best-dressed list and you might as well order in tonight, tomorrow night, and on through to Tuesday. Rather than go down that rabbit hole, pick up the September 2014 issue of Vanity Fair and leave it to the fine Condé Nast monthly’s editors and Mario Testino who make quick work of the task. Amongst a short list of 16 and wearing Louis Vuitton is Julia Restoin Roitfeld, who first appeared on the list in 2010. The portrait perfectly distills what it means to be not only best dressed, but also international, which are two categories in which Julia truly excels.
