On Thursday, Time released its "100 Most Influential People" list, with a solid number of fashion people (and celebrities beloved by the industry) represented in the magazine's annual relevancy roundup.
From the designer corner, Time selected Riccardo Tisci and the Chinese couturier Guo Pei, who got everyone's attention last May when Rihanna wore one of her extravagant looks to the Met Gala and has since started showing at Paris Couture Week. Melissa McCarthy, who launched her own clothing line last year, also landed on the list. (Her bio, written by Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters director Paul Feig, primarily focuses on her wickedly funny on-screen performances. Which, fair.)
Meanwhile, Karlie Kloss made it into Time's Icons category at the ripe old age of 23. Diane Von Furstenberg, who wrote her blurb, declared rather grandiosely that "Karlie Kloss is the epitome of the ideal American millennial woman." Famously, she does code!
Also on the list: Taraji P. Henson (duh), Adele (double duh), and Caitlyn Jenner (we've died of duh and gone to heaven), as well as Apple CEO Tim Cook, Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda, Nicki Minaj, Oscar winner (!!!) Leonardo DiCaprio, and perfect humans Priyanka Chopra and Charlize Theron.
Who are we missing? Oh. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
