Diane Von Furstenberg came in 91st in the Top 100 Power List
Forbes have just released their 2011 top 100 list of the most powerful people in the world, and we were totally excited to see some of our favourite sartorialists had made the cut – and so many girls! GIRL POWER! It makes me want to put on a Union Jack dress and do lots of high kicks like Ginger Spice.
We were really happy to see that both Beyonce and Lady Gaga had made it into the top 20 on the Power List, which they must be feeling pretty damn good about right now. Lady Gaga literally just missed making it into the top 10 as she came in at 11th place, while Beyonce was came in at a more-than-respectable 18th place.
One of our favourite women designers, the right honourable Diane Von Fursternberg ranked in 91st place. To me it seems that she should have scored a little higher for designing the wrap dress alone, but then again this is only out of 100 people in the world so it’s still a big honour.
The eco-warrior Angelina Jolie was unsurprisingly nearer the top end of the list in 29th, but what else do you expect from one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood? Her and Brad also came into the Forbes top 10 Rich Couple List, too.
The scary and iconic Anna Wintour, editor of American Vogue, was also on the list in 69th place but isn’t sure if she likes the label of being a “powerful woman”. Anna said: “I don’t think of myself as a powerful person,” she said. “You know, what does it mean? It means you get a better seat in a restaurant or tickets to a screening or whatever it may be. But it is a wonderful opportunity to be able to help others, and for that I’m extremely grateful. I assure you all the people that work with me on a day-to-day basis don’t think that. That’s just something that’s been fabricated by the media. And as you well know once something is out there, particularly in today’s world, it just gets exaggerated. I keep my head down and do the job to the best of my ability.” And you never make anyone carry you up the stairs when you’re tired, no sir. No sirrreeee, yep.
