Michelle Obama, Oprah, Lady Gaga, Beyonce Lead Most Powerful Women List

by at . Comments

Cultural impact might mean as much as money and political influence, as evidenced by the celebrities on Forbes' 2010 World's 100 Most Powerful Women list.

The list is based less on traditional titles and roles and more on creative influence as well as entrepreneurship, the building of brands, the breaking of barriers.

The women of politics, business, media and lifestyle (entertainment, sports and fashion) were ranked in each group, and after that, in group against group.

  1. Michelle Obama, First Lady of the U.S.
  2. Irene Rosenfeld, Chief Executive, Kraft Foods
  3. Oprah Winfrey, Talk show host and media mogul
  4. Angela Merkel, Chancellor, Germany
