Just in time for New York Fashion Week, Vanity Fair has released its 2016 International Best-Dressed List.

Female fashionistas like Michelle Obama, Rei Kawakubo and Helen Mirren represent the ladies this year, while Russell Westbrook, Justin Trudeau and Joe Biden made the cut for the men.

Additionally, Tilda Swinton, Moses Berkson and H.R.H. Crown Princess Mary of Denmark were inducted into the 2016 Hall of Fame.

According to a brief Q&A accompanying the Best-Dressed List, Swinton's favorite item of clothing is her kilt, her favorite designers are Haider Ackermann, Alber Elbaz and Chanel, her favorite shoes are her Manolo BB's (in all colors) and her style idol is Juman Malouf.

Those included in the Hollywood category include Fan Bingbing, Idris Elba, Lily James, Eddie Redmayne and Mirren.

"I'm so in love with Ralph & Russo. Elie Saab is one of my favorites too. Last but not least, my endearing friend Christopher Bu — we've known each other and worked together for so long," Bingbing told Vanity Fair.

James named Burberry, Chloé, Erdem and Alexander McQueen as her favorite brands, while Redmayne named Miuccia Prada at Prada and Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.

Michelle Obama is featured in the couples alongside her husband Barack, as is John and Lavinia Elkann, Juman Malouf and Wed Anderson and Charlotte and Alejandro Santo Domingo.

Pat Cleveland, Lady Gaga, Andra Day, Daveed Diggs and Nicky Haslam earned a spot in the Originals category on this year's list. Gaga's most memorable ensemble of the year is the white strapless Brandon Maxwell dress she wore to the Oscars.
