WELL DRESSED: Aside from cover profiles on Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett, the September issue of Vanity Fair includes its assessment of this year’s best dressed. President Barack Obama is on the list for the first time, while First Lady Michelle Obama makes her third appearance in a row (guess the Hall of Fame will come next year). New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg also makes his first appearance, while longtime girlfriend Diana Taylor was nominated for the second year running. First Lady of France Carla Bruni-Sarkozy makes her second appearance on the list, but her husband, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, didn’t make the cut, despite her much-publicized restyling of him.

Others among the best dressed include Penélope Cruz, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Keys and Kelly Ripa, who all make their first appearances. Brad Pitt appears for the third time, but without companion Angelina Jolie, who was recognized along with Pitt in 2007 and 2008. As for the fashion set, they include Georgina Chapman, Rachel Roy, Tory Burch,’s Candy Pratts Price and Franca Sozzani, editor in chief of Italian Vogue and L’Uomo Vogue. — Stephanie D. Smith
