Time 100 List Excludes Fashion Designers

Missing from the Time 100 list—which "names the people who most affect our world"—this year: fashion designers, save Marc Jacobs, as interviewed by one Victoria Beckham. Who didn't make the list? Everyone else, including big names like Ralph Lauren, Karl Lagerfeld, Giorgio Armani. Sure, Donna Karan and Tom Ford wrote profiles for the special issue, but really? Aren't there other fashion designers who influence our lives besides Jacobs? What do you think? [WWD]
