The American daily has revealed its annual ranking of the people (and characters) who stood out for their style in 2023. Let's take a look at a podium full of contrasts.


When it came time to establish its style list for the year 2023, the New York Times went far, far and wide and from all directions for inspiration. In particular, the American daily has taken into account the change in the situation brought about by artificial intelligence. This year's annual list of the most stylish personalities includes 71 names. Among them, some have demonstrated very marked personal tastes, others have shown a chronic clothing fever, or have participated in the highlights of the fashion sphere. Others, more unexpected, are surprising. The New York Times explains that these personalities were chosen from an initial group of 250 proposals, submitted by the Style section, then selected in "heated and passionate debates" by journalists. The credit went to those who made them talk about "what we wear, how we live, and how we express ourselves."

On the fashion side, two personalities have impressed: Pharrell Williams, who took over as artistic director of Louis Vuitton's men's collections in February, and Margot Robbie, who flooded the red carpets with pink to promote her film Barbie. Rihanna and her pregnancy belly find their place in this ranking, as does Beyoncé and her 150 stage outfits for the tour of her album Renaissance, all signed by designers. Precisely, there are some creators in the list of the New York daily. In addition to Williams, we find Miuccia Prada, at the head of Prada and MiuMiu, and Gaurav Gupta, of the haute couture label that bears her name. There are also sportswomen, such as tennis player Coco Gauff, for her matching ensembles, or Mary Earps, from the women's Paris-Saint-Germain, for "her arm wrestle with Nike". The brand had refused to sell the women's goalkeepers' jerseys (while they do it for men), which hurt the player and her fans, who insisted so much that Nike ended up selling a small amount.

Other celebrities have their names on the list, from Pamela Anderson to Taylor Swift. On the royal side, it is not Kate Middleton who is mentioned but King Charles III. The newspaper believes that the sovereign has waited long enough to be able to wear the clothes of the King of England and that 2023 is therefore his year. Charles III is next to Jeff Bezos' yacht in the rankings. Yes, yes, Jeff Bezos' yacht.

People, characters and more because affinities

37 women, 21 men, 3 couples... That's 64 people. So who are the six missing to complete the list of winners? This is where the NYT surprises because they're not quite people. Rather, this category includes "things", i.e. spaces, animals or objects that have participated in highlights of fashion culture in the last twelve months. We discover The Sphere, the entertainment arena in Las Vegas that opened its doors last September, the famous cockroach of the Met Gala, unfortunately deceased before being able to climb the steps, the horror doll M3gan, heroine of Gerard Johnstone's film released in December 2022, but also Jeff Bezos' Koru yacht, whose bow allowed us to discover the billionaire's abs.

And suddenly the pope

And to close this list, habemus papam was able to say the head coach. Because it is Pope Francis in a down jacket who figures well on this list of styles. The implausible and bizarrely brilliant character was actually born by artificial intelligence last March. When it was first published, for a few hours, the public believed it, only to learn that it was a real image of a fake character, the first of a long series created by artificial intelligence in the fashion world.

Last but not least: Bridget's Burberry bag, in the Succession series. The XXL object earns its owner a wave of mockery from the other characters. This monogrammed bag embodies, in the series, the gap between the old and the new rich, a symptomatic habit of a person who does not master the tacit codes of the social milieu he joins. In real life, the stage is an expression of a trend that is only growing in the locker room: quiet luxury.

The Rise of Discreet Luxury

In the New York Times' list of the 71 most stylish people of 2023, a dozen celebrities are rallying around this trend of discreet luxury. This dress code, which embraces sober elegance and invisible opulence, has received more impetus than ever. In March, Gwyneth Paltrow defended herself from paying 1 million euros in damages to the man who accused her in a ski accident case. In court, she wears outfits that could not be simpler, but could not be more expensive, sometimes exceeding hundreds of thousands of euros. In April, Sofia Richie married Elliot Grainge and gradually became the darling of luxury labels and Internet users thanks to her simple but refined outfits. Also there are Mark Zuckerberg and his Brunello Cucinelli T-shirts, Phoebe Philo and her new brand in solid colors, but also couples such as David and Victoria Beckham or Prince Hussein and Princess Rajwa of Jordan. Proof, then, that this trend is gaining ground. It remains to be seen how much of it will occupy in next year's ranking. After all, 2024 is already starting in a few weeks.
