38 THE 2019 BEST DRESSED LIST PAPERCITY'S CULTURE/STYLE EDITOR, BILLY FONG, WEIGHS IN ON THE YEAR'S MOST STYLISH SOULS. Ken Downing Shasa Mitcham Shelby Goff F or the last few months, people have asked whether I was preparing my third annual Best Dressed List. Some might deride an eye towards sartorial splen- dor, but given the depressing news on CNN and Fox, I say it's important to look toward fashion for hope, inspiration, and escapism. Herewith, our city's fi nest as we look back on 2019. Freshman Year Our next generation of tastemakers who set the standard for the decade ahead. At times, they venture from the pack but generally have a keen eye towards the classics. Bela Cooley Shelby Goff Jordan Jones Perennially Pretty The world could be falling to pieces around them, yet somehow they always look picture perfect. They would have been the ideal models for famed portraitist John Singer Sargent. They love a pretty frock but also know that the greatest accessories are charm, wit, and a gracious demeanor. Moll Anderson Joyce Goss Muffi n Lemak The Edgy Crowd These are the peacocks amongst us. If anyone accuses Dallas of being conservative, we point to these fashion superstars. For them, style is not about labels, but rather about a mix of old and now, cheap and expensive. There are no rules, and we love them for that. Jennifer Karol Hanh Merriman Shasa Mitcham Chic à Deux These couples radiate when together, with neither stealing the spotlight from the other. They are the yin to the other's yang. Brian Bolke and Faisal Halum Deborah and John Scott Margot and Darin Ruebel Boys (Dallas' version of Lapo Elkann) This set of gents looks incredible dressed down or up. True confession: We prefer our boys in a tuxedo or an impeccably tailored suit. Don't we all need more James Bonds in our lives? Crawford Brock Doniphan Moore Dwight Powell Lifetime Achievement Award Our hall of famers have stayed true to their inner style. They are consummately polished yet unfailingly unpretentious, as they have nothing to prove.
