What do Beyoncé and Miuccia Prada and have in common? Aside from being a couple of our favorite ladies, they’re both on the 2013 edition of the Forbes World’s Most Powerful Women list. The coterie of celebrated figures includes CEOS, politicians, philanthropists, and of course, celebrities.
After last year’s lack of fashion representation, we’re happy to see many industry favorites make the list, including Diane von Furstenberg (number 74), Tory Burch (69), Zara founder Rosalia Mera (66), and Gisele Bündchen (95). Anna Wintour made the list at a middling number 41, and the mag. calls her the “editor-in-cheif” of Vogue. Seems like they missed the memo on her big promotion this year.
Another nit-picky note: If it were up to us, Angelina Jolie would rank much higher than number 37. We have a feeling that after her brave The New York Times op-ed about undergoing a mastectomy, she will be at the top of the heap in 2014. The coveted number one spot went to Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, an honor she’s held for seven years running.
