The Most Powerful of Them All
The Costume Institute at the Met earlier this year celebrated two of fashion’s female greats: Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli. It was indeed a great triumph for powerful ladies in all fields. The annual Forbes list of the 100 most powerful women in the world, out today, honors Prada and a few other stylish women with the attention they so deserve. No surprise here, but CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg came in at number 33, above one of fashion’s other most powerful ladies, Anna Wintour (#51). Joining them are fashion favorites like Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Gisele Bündchen, Queen Elizabeth II, Beyoncé, and J. Lo. Click here to see the full list. Honorable mention goes to power women in the making including Kate Middleton (you can’t win everything; sorry, Kate), Girls‘ Lena Dunham, Jennifer Lawrence, and Spanx creator Sarah Blakely. Maybe next year, ladies.
