Over the weekend, Airmail published the 2019 International Best-Dressed list. A number of red-carpet staples were given the honor of being most fashionable, including Cate Blanchett, Janelle Monáe, Zoë Kravitz, and Harry Styles. But as the list also covers high society, there are several non-celebrities that might require an extra Google. Luckily, The Daily has done the work for you! Here are some of 2019’s best-dressed people you’ve probably never heard of.

1. Rachel Feinstein
Country: U.S.
Occupation: Artist
Worth noting: She is friends with Marc Jacobs and once created a runway set for him. She is not a comedian (that’s a different Rachel Feinstein).
