Anna Wintour, designer Miuccia Prada among Forbes' 100
May '13
For the very first time in her several-decades-long career as a fashion journalist and writer, American Vogue’s British born editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has finally made it to the Forbes magazine’s annual list of The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women. 
Ranked at 41, the proud OBE holder Wintour, who is currently holding the respectable position of Artistic Director at the US-based lifestyle publication Condé Nast, stands just one place after Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the 2013’s list.
In addition to Wintour, the prestigious list also includes names of several other fashion bigwigs, such as Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts (who occupies the 52nd position for her role in resurrecting the storied British brand) and internationally famous Italian fashion designer Miuccia Prada (occupying number 58).  
Additionally, Inditex co-founder Rosalia Mera, American fashion designers Tory Burch and Diane Von Furstenberg and Spanx owner Sara Blakely have been placed at position numbers 66, 69, 74 and 90 respectively.
The list also includes Brazilian fashion model and face of Chanel Gisele Bundchen at number 95.
Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Women list has been primarily based on seven categories or power bases—billionaires, business, lifestyle (including entertainment and fashion), media, nonprofits and NGOs, politics and technology.
