The 25 Most Stylish Bostonians

Editor’s note

FOR OUR SIXTH ANNUAL LIST of the 25 Most Stylish Bostonians, we employed the same rule we always do: Never repeat a nominee. Among the new faces: Cuchi Cuchi bartender Whitney Pallend, who strikes a pose on the cover, Bruins right wing Brad Marchand, MIT robotics guru Dr. Cynthia Breazeal, the Boston Foundation’s F. Javier Torres, and many more starting on page 22. (For those keeping track: With two sets of siblings, one musical duo, and a pair of club kingpins, we actually top out at 29 Most Stylish this year. Hey, it works for us.)

Of course, this being the Globe’s Fall Style magazine, we’ve also collected some of the season’s loveliest designer looks – captured elegantly in photographs by Sadie Dayton on page 34 – and chic finds from local boutiques. Need more style inspiration? Two members of the New England Revolution model great looks for men on page 14, Vermont rocker Grace Potter reveals why she prefers glitz to grunge on page 10, and local milliners top off everything with the hottest hats around. Read on and enjoy. -- Hayley Kaufman
