The Time supplement featured women who are shaking up the business of luxury and taking charge. Read about the CEO of giant cosmetic empire Lancome, to the talent agency boss that signs the likes of Scarlet Johansson for Louis Vuitton and Russia’s most successful homegrown high street retail fashion sensation founded by a 16 year old who’s still in high school. There’s also profiles on more well known names like Stella McCartney and Anya Hindmarch.
