The most fashionable men and women from around Asia

The word "stylish" conjures a cornucopia of images. Perhaps it’s an immaculate woman posing grandly in a ballgown, or a popular influencer who can pull off any trend, or maybe it’s someone whose look is so distinctive she can be recognised a mile away.

The men and women featured on this year’s Asia’s Most Stylish list include all of the above and more—they are newcomers and veterans, edgy and classic, maximalist and minimalist, but one thing they all have in common is an undeniable mix of confidence, sophistication and flair.
