Artforum publisher Knight Landesman; collector, creative director, and television host China Chow; and artist Aaron Young.

From a couture-clad curator and colorful publisher to a Coogi-collecting artist and a been-there-shot-that fashion photographer, these 20 new additions to our pantheon of the art world’s best-dressed are their own muse, master, and masterpiece. Their unique signature style is revered and imitated the world over, whether on a red carpet or gallery wall — and they always know who the It-designers are, sometimes before anyone else. They're the rock stars Is it any wonder why the worlds of art and fashion get along so well?
