The Most Fashionable Ladies on Forbes's List of 100 Most Powerful Women

Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women 2012 List

Forbes's annual list of the 100 most powerful women in the world has a few notable entries from the fashion world, including Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Wintour, and Miuccia Prada.

The list ranks Diane von Furstenberg at no. 33, citing her position as president of the CFDA as a reason for the high ranking. She ranks far above any of the other women on the list who work in fashion, including even Anna Wintour, whose work raising money for President Obama's reelection campaign (and the 11 million plus people who read Vogue every month) helped hear earn spot 51. Miuccia Prada also made the list: in spot 67, she is recognized for her recent inclusion in the Costume Institute's Impossible Conversations exhibit.

Lady Gaga and Gisele Bundchen, aged 26 and 32 respectively, are the youngest women on the list; most of the other members are between the ages of 37 and 73.

But age isn't the number that matters on this list. A look at the most fashionable women included — and where they rank — here in the gallery.
