Hi people! I'd like to know the idiomatic meaning of this expression. I suppose it means that if a person is the cream of the crop, he or she might be the best in a group, I'd like to understand the play of words involved here. This is the context: "Luckily for us red-blooded males lusting for fresh faces, Mischa Barton is among the cream of the crop. One of the most sought-after actresses of her generation, Entertainment Weekly has labeled her one of 2003's "It" girls, designating her among the most creative people in the entertainment industry." Thank you very much!!
