In an average week, I attend one to three events—galas, luncheons, performances, etc.—so it’s not unusual for me to run into the same people who carry on with a similar schedule as I do. And with every event, there are those who consistently stand out. Call it a combination of confidence, charisma and style, these are people who command your attention as soon they walk into the room.

It is with this premise that we’ve assembled our first-ever gathering of LN's Best-Dressed St. Louisans. What do a banker, fashion designer, restaurateur, TV host and graphic artist have in common? No, there’s no punch line, but they all did walk into a St. Louis bar recently to pose for the camera…as part of this week’s special fashion feature.

But their sense of style is only part of the package: As you’ll see, our best-dressed ambassadors also are committed to the St. Louis community, be it through their support of local enterprises or their advocacy of worthy nonprofit causes. Curious to see who made the list? Our fashion pages begin on p. 27.
