Time Only Has Room For One Designer

Time magazine takes it upon itself to narrow down the 100 most influential people in the world on a yearly basis to create the “Time 100″ list. Along with the requisite world leaders — Barack Obama, Bill Clinton — a few fashion people generally earn a spot for their efforts. But this year, the list includes just one designer, Marc Jacobs. In the issue, Victoria Beckham offers her opinion on Marc, claiming he’s “one of the most interesting and intellectual men” she’s ever known and crediting him with innovative designs and the skill to determine trends. And I certainly agree. After all, the man walks around in a kilt and has fashion editors scrambling to their seats in order to see his shows. My problem is with the rest of the list. Do Robert Pattinson, Lady Gaga, and Simon Cowell really belong on the same level as leaders like the President? I’d argue that designers like Karl Lagerfeld or Ralph Lauren are a great deal more influential than a celebrity who doesn’t know how to wash his hair. View the full “Time 100″ here and draw your own opinion. [Time]
