Vanity Fair has released its annual "Best Dressed" list and as usual it's a smattering of fashion industry alumnae, political figures and socialites. Barack and Michelle Obama both made the list, although rather than listed as a 'Best Dressed Couple,' (like the Diana Taylor and Mayor Bloomberg), Barack is grouped with the 'Best Dressed Men' alongside Brad Pitt and Daniel Craig, while Michelle shares the 'Best Dressed First Ladies' category with Carla Bruni. As for 'Professionals,' the list includes Tory Burch, Rachel Roy and Italian Vogue's Franca Sozzani among others. [VF]
