Woman power at its best – Forbes Magazine honors the power of woman in its latest ‘lists’ just released with Michelle Obama coming in at number one, beating out Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton. And while we’re definitely celebrating our First Lady getting her proper due, if you’re a lover of fashion like I am, then you can’t ignore the homage paid to these trendsetting icons, Tory Burch (#88), Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Magazine (#56), and Vera Wang (#92), just to name a few.
Not only are these women gloried in all of their power, but they definitely know a thing or two about putting their best stiletto forward. For instance, First Lady Obama is a woman after my own heart as she branded White House Black Market so eloquently last year with her appearance on The View. With a budget conscious purse these days, even this modestly priced retailer can keep a lady out in waiting for that sale price to come through…but I digress.
Live this Friday at 11am ET, The Greenlight Project welcomes USA Today’s fashion/style writer Arienne Thompson to the show and she will be talking all things fashion forward and I’m excited about what her thoughts will be about this list and what these women are caught wearing on the red carpet. Set your reminders for this one. Arienne is known to give the juicy scoop and the latest fashion news on our favorite celebs, so we’re in for a USA Today treat!
I’d also like to note some other fashion forward power women I watch that showed up on this list are: Beyonce’ Knowles, model Heidi Klum, Sarah Jessica Parker, Venus and Serena Williams and so many others. I’m very proud of the diversity this list shows. You can see the entire list by clicking on this link: http://www.forbes.com/wealth/power-women/list.
