The folks over at Vanity Fair sure do know how to compile a good best-dressed list—the Conde Nast glossy's annual September mega-list spans Hollywood, socialites, generic rich people, and cultural tastemakers and is one of the most-referenced sartorial rankings in media. Yesterday, VanityFair.com tried its hand at ranking Silicon Valley's best-dressed... with mixed results.
Do you agree with Gizmodo's senior staff writer Sam Biddle when he tweeted:
What do you think of the list? Here's the rundown, with some select photos and screengrabs:
1. Marissa Mayer, President and CEO of Yahoo - "Her personal style—bold, colorful, decidedly un-drab—inspires the same unwavering image of leadership as, say, Michelle Obama’s."

2. Jack Dorsey, Founder of Twitter, CEO of Square - Cited for "significant improvement in the form of slim-fitting suits, popped collars, and skinny ties from timeless brands like Dior Homme, Prada, and Hermès."

5. Juliet de Baubigny, Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers - "The mother of two is often seen in structured shift dresses, belted frocks, and flowing asymmetrical gowns, many of which she’s likely bought online at her favorite online shopping sites, Net-A-Porter and Kirna Zabete."

6. Vint Cerf, Computer Scientist - "Vint Cerf lays claim to a wardrobe of sleek three-piece suits and red ties, not unlike Gene Hackman’s attire in The Royal Tenenbaums."
