Red Carpet Bay Area’s annual Top Women of Style list introduces a few women who bring it every time they go out. Our honorees in 2008 and 2009 are worthy of the 2010 list they continue to dazzle — but we are adding more of the Bay Areas most stylish women. In alphabetical order, our past Top Women of Style: Lindsay Bolton, Barbara Brown, Juliet Flint De Baubigny, Vanessa Getty, Angelique Griepp, , Victoria Yeager Sawyer, Sobia A. Shaikh, Elizabeth Touw and Dede Wilsey.
For 2010, we start the list by adding Deepa Pakianathan, winner of the San Francisco Chronicles interactive gown poll for her San Francisco Opera opening gown, and a second-place tie (with Elizabeth Touw, another Red Carpet Bay Area style favorite), with her gown at San Francisco Symphony’s opening gala.
Deepa Pakianathan heads up biotechnology investments for Delphi Ventures, a venture capital firm focused on the healthcare industry. In addition to her impressive business resume former VP in the healthcare group at JP Morgan, biotechnology research analyst at Genesis Merchant Group and scientist at Genentech Deepas wardrobe is astounding.
Throughout 2010 Deepa was seen in dresses by designers Zuhair Murad, Blumarine, Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan, just to name a few. Deepa shops all over the world; in San Francisco her favorite people and fashion purveyors are Vicki Winston at Neiman Marcus, Anita at Susan on Sacramento Street, Marianna at Prada, Union Square, and Jonathan at the Marc Jacobs store on Maiden Lane.
