Forbes is out with the list of the most important people in the world. It has many surprises in store, but what surprises everyone is that the Chinese president scored over U.S. president Barack Obama to be the most powerful man in the world. Hu Jintao, the premier of Chinese nation is then world’s most important and powerful person!
Angela Merkel, Dmitry Medvedev, Nicholas Sarkozy were other national heads who were listed in the most powerful gang. For us the fashion and luxury connoisseurs, there was something to be happy about. Bernard Arnault, the head of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton was listed at the 43rd spot.
Hublot, Zenith, Moët et Chandon, Krug, Dom Pèrignon, Hennessy, Belvedere, Guerlain, Sephora, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Fendi, Céline, Pucci, Thomas Pink, Berluti, Loewe, TAG Heuer and other brands are owned by LVMH which makes Bernard Arnault the most powerful in the luxury industry. The guy does not even look like the rest of the “powerful people”. He looks thin, quaint and sophisticated which is actually how people associated with luxury should look.
