Let's be honest: there are Best Dressed lists in Hollywood.

And then there's the Best Dressed list in Hollywood.

Who was stylish enough to land a spot on the latter?

Vanity Fair just came out with the 2014 International Best-Dressed countdown - and it includes a couple Oscar winners, a New York Giants wide receiver and, of course, the Duchess of Cambridge.

In fact, having appeared four straight years on the list, Kate Middleton has been inducted into Vanity Fair's Hall of Fame (along with fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld).

The cast of Star Wars: Episode 7 was revealed last week and it seemed from the announcement that director JJ Abrams intended to keep the film free of A-list stars.
