Vanity Fair’s ‘Best Dressed Newsmen’

By Alex Weprin Comment

Vanity fair presents a list of the top 10 “best dressed newsmen.” What was the magazine looking for in style?

“His wardrobe should be dynamic enough to hold our attention but not so outrĂ© as to distract from the evening broadcast,” it says.

The big question: what serious anchors made the clothing cut?

NBC’s Matt Lauer, Brian Williams, Lester Holt and Willie Geist, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper, CBS’ Anthony Mason and Charlie Rose and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough. You can see them all in slideshow fashion here.

Update: There is a women’s list too, including Barbara Walters, Megyn Kelly and Savannah Guthrie. The full list is here.
