World’s most influential fashion icons since 1923. That’s who’s on Time’s Fashion Icons list. But who put them there? Why? Because Azzedine Alaia tops the designers list, Gisele Bundchen is the most influential model, Josephine Baker is on top of the muses list, Avedon is leading the influential photographers list and Isabella Blow was crowned as the most influential editor & stylist. You might be surprised to find Grace Coddington second to Isabella Blow on the editors & stylists top while Carine Roitfeld and Franca Sozzani occupy the 8th and 9th position respectively.
Like Fashionista has pointed out, British designers are either at the bottom of (any) list, either not present at all, as is the case with people of color. Also – who placed Andy Warhol under “muse”? Seriously, Time? You should check out the lists too (here), see if it’s accurate.
