Richard Johnson in NYPost.com’s Page Six announced today that the Studio Museum in Harlem Director Thelma Golden is on Vanity Fair’s best dressed list.
Afrolistainthecity.com said Thelma is one lucky woman because there aren’t many women who have (friends with) husbands who are legendary fashion designers (unless your name is Annette de la Renta, the wife of fashion designer Oscar de la Renta.) and (it doesnt hurt that) Thelma happens to be married to London based fashion designer, Duro Olowu.
Afrolistainthecity.com continued, who could forget the fabulous New York apartment of Golden’s as it appeared in a previous issue of O at Home Magazine a few years ago?
Those connections work with the fashion oracles at Vanity Fair who run the International Best-Dressed List.
Thelma is listed as a suggestion for this year’s list, along with hotelier André Balazs, NY Giants receiver Victor Cruz, cookbook author Alex Hitz, HBO boss Richard Plepler, Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson, art dealer Vito Schnabel (who is dating Heidi Klum) and Fiat heir Jean Pigozzi, whose nationality is listed as “Panama, Switzerland and US.” Panama?
Voters who received their ballots last week were also urged to cast their ballots for Lupita Nyong’o; Blake Lively; Pippa Middleton; Cressida Bonas (though she just broke up with Prince Harry); Michelle Dockery, Lady Mary of “Downton Abbey”; Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer; IMF managing director Christine Lagarde; and three celebrity daughters: Lola Schnabel, Bee Shaffer (offspring of Vogue editor Anna Wintour) and Allison Williams.
Suggestions for the couples category include Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Christy Turlington and Ed Burns, and Shirin von Wulffen and Frederic Fekkai.
The 2014 list, with 10 men and 10 women, will be unveiled in the September 2014 issue.
