Guess Who's Influential

Are you still guessing?... Artist Takashi Murakami {who most recently collaborated with Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton}, French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld... AND Karl Lagerfeld! The trio has managed to grab a spot in TIME Magazines 100 Most Influential edition.

All three known for their unique edition to the worlds of fine and fashion. Lagerfeld who has been creating the epitome of style long before the majority of us were born has been hailed for years as a creative genius and of late is using that insight at Chanel {as well as his own respective fashion house}.

"Before Karl, we all looked to couture for inspiration and direction," Zaha Hadid says in the issue. "Now, through his work, fashion originates from the street, the media - anywhere. This has resulted in exciting collections that are provocative and sensual."

Roitfeld, much like Largerfeld, has been known for her sense of style ever since her modeling days. With her at the helm of French Vogue, the magazine has soared to new heights as she utilizes her keen fashion sense as well as the street style that is elegant, yet simple which is known to the streets of Paris.
