October 1, 2011. Future-ish is pleased to announce our first annual list of the world's top ten 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. Gone are the days of scientists in corduroy, sandals, and turtlenecks. Today's scientists are as inspiring in front of the camera as they are in their respective research fields. 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. In launching the annual Stylish Scientist List, we hope that these high-profile role models will inspire everyone, from middle schoolers and the Mom next door to movie stars and musicians, to become inspired, informed, and engaged in the many and diverse fields of science, technology, engineering, and math that are shaping our future.
