NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Cate Blanchett and Lupita Nyong'o, both Oscar-winning actresses and favourites on Hollywood's red carpet, made Vanity Fair's 2014 international best dressed list on Wednesday and Britain's Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was named to its Hall of Fame.

It is Blanchett's second appearance and the first for Nyong'o on the annual list, which does not rank its fashion stars. The style setters list is dominated by actors, but it also includes European royals, sports stars and artists.

Princess Mary of Denmark, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery were noted for their style, along with artist Jeff Koons, New York Giant football wide receiver Victor Cruz and Grammy-winning musician Pharrell Williams.

Williams, on the list for a second time, named actor Johnny Depp as his style icon, while Cruz said he admired Williams for his style.
