Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women List Is On Point, Save One Teeny Mistake

2 comments

The annual Forbes list of the 100 most powerful women alive is, though generally not surprising in the least, always a good reminder that we run the world. (Who, you ask? Oh, come on. You know.) This year's round up features all the standard players, like Hillary Clinton, Oprah, Arianna Huffington, and Melinda Gates. And of course, Anna Wintour is on there, too.

But there is one teensy, tiny, nitpicky thing we couldn't help but notice. They named Ms. Wintour as "Editor-in-Chief, Vogue, Condé Nast Publications, Inc." And Forbes isn't the only one who has a hard time recognizing her new title. In fact, she can't catch a break. What's the deal? Her new title, Artistic Director, is very public knowledge and already in place in a number of Condé mastheads.

We imagine Forbes is pretty careful about this sort of thing, so we have to wonder if they double-checked with Condé HQ and received a request to leave her as EIC, for now. Vogue itself hasn't made the change yet, though we can't quite fathom why. But with an editor as pedigreed and feared respected as Wintour, we can imagine why her disciples are reluctant to let her go.

Oh, and then there's the fact that Jenna Lyons is considered "one to watch" in 2014, a powerful woman "in the making" — call us crazy but we'd argue she's already there and then some. Check out the entire Forbes list here, and meet the women making waves today, regardless of their titles!
