October 2013. Future-ish is pleased to announce our third annual list of the world's most stylish scientists.

The individuals on our list are changing the world with their innovative research and changing stereotypes every time they make an appearance expressing their oh-so-stylish selves.

Unlike a simple 'best dressed' list, our Stylish Scientist List isn't about trends and expensive labels, its about individuals expressing themselves and their individuality in their life and work. The individuals on the list prove that along with doing fascinating research, scientists are fascinating people, from athletes and techies to chefs and yes...even fashionistas.

We hope that our many and diverse stylish scientists will serve as role models to inspire everyone - from middle-schoolers and the Mom next door to movie stars and musicians - to become inspired, informed, and engaged in the numerous fields of science, technology, engineering, and math that are shaping our future.

Looking for even more stylish scientists? Check out Allie Wilkinson's This is What a Scientist Looks Like Tumblr or our Stylish Scientist label with posts from Olya Yarychkivska on her blog, Lunarka's Treasure Box.


Want to nominate a stylish scientist for our next list? Our selection committee looks at 10 diverse variables including things like involvement in science, design, and culture, unique hobbies, STEM advocacy, and of course...a great personal sense of style. To nominate someone, simply send an email with a pic and short bio of the scientist (self-nominations are fab too) to studioF/at/future-ish/dot/com.
