National Magazine Company List of Most Influential Women in UK

An Author, a Spice Girl, and the Queen Are UK's Most Influential

Michelle Obama might be the most powerful woman in the world according to Forbes, but in the UK she has to compete with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. To celebrate its 100th birthday, the National Magazine company revealed its list of most influential women in the UK. The queen came in at number three, dethroned by Rowling (number one) and former Spice Girl and current style icon Victoria Beckham (number two).

So how does the UK-specific list stack up to Forbes's recent ranking? In the UK, stylish people like Posh, Vivienne Westwood, and Kate Moss fill out the top 10. On the Forbes list, Beyonce Knowles is the only credited "fashion designer" to crack the first 10. On the UK list, first lady Samantha Cameron comes in at ninth place, so apparently having the ear of the country's leader doesn't make you as influential in England as it does in the US. And while author Rowling tops the list in the UK, the most influential female author according to Forbes is Chelsea Handler, who placed number 33 overall.

Which list do you think comes closest to defining influence?
