Inside its behemoth 916-page September 2012 issue, American Vogue names 120 of fashion's most-influentials under the age of 45.
Who made the list? Everyone amazing, including Adele, for her "sixties power-pop act"; Victoria Beckham, because "she quietly breached the impenetrable snob barrier" between celebrity and designer; Kate Middleton for "her correct approach"; Lena Dunham for being "the voice of a generation"; Solange Knowles, who they call "New York City’s resident It girl"; Zac Posen, for creating "showstopping flights of fantasy"; Kate Upton for her "all-American gorgeousness and an uncomplicated sensuality"; and Jason Wu—or, as they call him: "fashion’s young prince of polish."
