Vanity Fair Comes Up With Silicon Valley’s ‘Best Dressed’ List



Vanity Fair struggled to come up with ten examples of stylish Silicon Valley executives for its slideshow: The Top 10 Best-Dressed Execs in Silicon Valley | Vanity Fair

In fact, a couple of them aren’t really Silicon Valley based, and spend more time in New York, such as Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey (above) and Pete Cashmore, founder of Mashable. And there’s several on the list that you’ve probably never heard about – the result of desperate Googling in researching this topic.

Marc Andreessen is listed as well dressed even though he wears the standard VC uniform of Sand Hill Road: blue sports coat  and tan trousers. Vanity Fair says he’s not afraid to put on a power suit when needed.

Dressing well is better appreciated in New York than in Silicon Valley where the business-park culture of the  tech companies favors the style set by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg’s always-on T-shirt and jeans. San Francisco’s tech workers dress a little bit better but not by much.

Here are the others on the list:

Sean Parker – Spotify, Facebook. Not really a Silicon Valley exec but a character drawn by Sean Parker.

Alison Pincus – One Kings Lane. Old school classic.

Juliet De Baubigny – Partner At Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Looks great in a ball gown.

Vint Cerf – Google. Looks great in grey suit and grey vest.

Ruzwana Bashir – Peek.Com. She was in a recent New York Times article so it didn’t take much Googling to find her.

Jeremy Stoppelman – Yelp. Yep, he thinks about what to wear.
