10 Best Dressed Art Worlders of 2015

Andi Potamkin
Art advisor and former art dealer Andi Potamkin has made a splash on the art scene with her gorgeous gowns, chic suiting, and always perfect hair thanks to her stylist-to-the-stars hubby Jordan Blackmore.

Yvonne Force Villareal and Doreen Remen
The Art Production Fund co-founders are known for helping bring complex, often large-scale art projects to life (they’ve worked with everyone from Hanna Liden to Tracey Emin to a young Lena Dunham), but their style never suffers the consequences of their busy lives. Think luxe silk jumpsuits, wild fur coats, and statement accessories.

Alexandra Chemla may be the founder of Art Binder, one of the buzziest startups in the art world, but her style is a far cry from the “entrepreneur hoodie.” When she isn’t busy rolling out new products for the app, Chemla hits the town in gorgeous, understated evening wear.

Dasha Zhukova
Garage Museum founder, Artsy investor, and major art collector Dasha Zhukova is a veritable art world power player, and whether she’s in Russia, New York, or wherever else art-inclined jet setters are gathering, she dresses like it.

Zoe Buckman
Artist Zoe Buckman’s star is on the rise. After grabbing the attention of collectors and dealers alike with her signature vintage lingerie pieces embroidered with lyrics from Biggie and Tupac songs, Buckman has ventured into other mediums like neon, glass, and even a plastinated placenta. Along the way, her downtown-cool, hip-hop influenced personal style has remained awesome.

Noreen Ahmad
Thanks to a slew of printed, floor-grazing gowns, Sutton PR director and Guggenheim Young Collectors Committee chair Noreen Ahmad manages to look effortlessly glamorous at every event, whether she happens to be hosting to attending.

Lucy Chadwick
Gavin Brown’s Enterprise director Lucy Chadwick is best known for her insouciant, coolly minimalist style as well as her signature thick-rimmed glasses, and always manages to look equally at home at a fashion show as she does a downtown gallery opening.

Sarah Hoover
Gagosian Gallery’s Sarah Hoover, a leggy blonde who also happens to be married to artist Tom Sachs, attends all of New York’s top fashion and art events in glittery mini-dresses, structured gowns, and drool-worthy accessories.

Tali Lennox
Artist Tali Lennox (daughter of famed singer Annie Lennox) has a style all her own. The erstwhile model favors bold prints, eccentric headpieces, and eye-catching sunglasses, all worn with the swagger of a true downtown cool girl.
