The annual list, compiled by the New York Dress Institute and announced last night, is the resull of a poll of fashion editors and designers. Because of ties, the list totals 14 this year.

Blonde, beautiful and modest, she likes the casual look, goes in for simple suits, sweaters and skirts, spectator-sports clothes Tor daytime, goes elegant and dramatic only after dark. A perennial among the best- dressed is the Duchess of Windsor. Her supremacy is challenged this year .however, by a princess who refused to break the traditions of the British royal family for love, Princess Margaret. They tied for second place. Tied for third are Mrs. Byron Poy, who clings to her long - bob hairstyle despite trends, is deliberately dressy, likes black and white, buys her clothes in Paris; and Countess R.udolfo Crespl, one of the prettiest American sirls ever to marry a foreign title.
