Welcome to the Future-ish Stylish Scientist List, an ever-growing collection 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. The list includes a wide range of scientists and researchers, from neuroscientists and archaeologists to physicists and technology experts - and they all prove that it is possible to be a person of both substance and style.
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 applaud and thank them for their outstanding efforts in science, science communication, STEM outreach, etc.
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 shape our future, as well as help us understand the past.
Our Stylish Scientist List launched in 2011 and for eight years we published a new list of individuals annually. Through a complex scoring system that tracked aspects of science, design, and culture attributes we were even able to produce a 'Top 10' list each of those years. In 2019, we decided to focus on new additions to our list going forward rather than ranking the listees. So we encourage you to come back soon and ofter to see who is added to the list throughout the year.
Below you will find individuals added to the list in the current year, as well as links to the full list of women and men that have been added over the years. Individuals are listed alphabetically.
