The 10 Best-Dressed Chefs in NYC
Fashion, like food, is often used to push the boundaries of conventional taste. And while white double breasted jackets dominate the kitchen, many chefs throw on more stylish clothing outside of work. In honor of Fashion Week--which runs from today through September 12--we've gathered the city's 10 best-dressed chefs, individuals who take their own presentation as seriously as their plating.

Simple, elegant, and natural, Vikas Khanna makes smart style choices. He plays it safe with color choices, and his fashion sense has gotten him voted man of the year for several publications. Oh, he's also got a Michelin star to his name and is a respected author and host--things you have to dress really well for.
9. Marc Forgione, Marc Forgione

Sporting a mohawk and pulling it off in the haughty world of fine dining is reason enough to add Forgione to this list. Add in bad-ass selections like a leather jacket and aviators-- okay even a sweater and scarf--and you have yourself a man who's style says "I kick ass and can back it up...but I'd rather just cook an awesome meal for you."
8. Michael Chernow, The Meatball Shop

Chernow could easily double as the front man for Fun. when he's not helming a meatball empire. With jeans with the cuff rolled up and button-downs with the sleeves rolled up, Chernow's smart casual outfits mirror his food: Just because it's a meatball doesn't mean it can't look really good.
