Here's what StyleCaster had to say about their project:
New York City is a, if not, the, fashion capital of the world. An amalgamation of high fashion, retro appreciation, individual style and more than a little personality epitomizes a city that lives and breathes fashion – even by proxy, sometimes serendipitously, almost always uniquely. We've gathered 50 New Yorkers from editorial, retail, beauty, music and beyond who exemplify the reality of our New York – to bring you New York's 50 Most Stylish. – Kerry Pieri
*I'd suggest reading the individual Q&A's as well, great stuff. Thanks to Will Yan for the heads up.
