Fashion Features on Forbes’ Most Powerful Women List

-------

Miuccia Prada takes a bow

Forbes released its 2013 list of the world’s most powerful women earlier today, and on it were social and political movers and shakers: Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Oprah Winfrey; megawatt stars: Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie, and Gisele Bündchen; and one or two surprises (Shakira at number 52, for example). But fashion’s power players held their own against heads of state (Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel came in at number one), businesswomen, and celebrities alike. Miuccia Prada (58), Diane von Furstenberg (74), newly crowned billionaire Tory Burch (69), Anna Wintour (41), and Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts (52) all earned much-deserved spots on the list. Hats off to the industry’s—and the world’s—leading ladies.

Speaker In The House

-------

We hear that Nancy Pelosi was at Diane von Furstenberg’s Meatpacking District headquarters last night, where the designer hosted a private fundraiser for the Speaker of the House. The congresswoman admired the nearby High Line from DVF’s studio, but didn’t have time to take a stroll. She was headed straight back to D.C., where she said that the House energy vote was at the top of her agenda.

Brad Goes to Washington, Hillary Goes Everywhere, And More Fashionable Politics

Further proof that Washington now rivals Hollywood in star wattage (first confirmation being the exhaustive dairy of Michelle’s outfits on HuffPo): Brad Pitt descends on the District to meet with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today to talk housing and hurricanes. Maybe this will be the meeting he shaves his soul patch for? We can only hope. [People]

Nancy may get Brad, but does she have her own real-time GPS tracking system? Introducing the Hillary tracker, an interactive online map courtesy of the State Department that allows Clinton fans to keep tabs on their fave Secretary. [The Atlantic]

And if that wasn’t enough, here’s a handy compilation of White House hunks. Yes, that’s right. Reggie Love is hunky. [HuffPo]

Have you noticed a void in your wardrobe, a dearth of “mannish, unisex, and neutral shoes“? Consider it filled. Salvatore Ferragamo and Yohji Yamamoto have collaborated on just such kicks, which will be unveiled at Yohji’s show on Friday. [WWD]

The people at Pop need a better press secretary. No one’s sure who’s in, who’s out, or what, exactly, constitutes an “editorial board.” WWD clears it up. Kind of.
