Those are expected to actually land in the Top 10 with their positions, wealth and influence but the Top 10 also has some faces that are truly buzz-worthy. Music icons Lady Gaga landed at No.7. For most of the people used to seeing the Forbes List, it's a complete surprise but for me, nah. She has been in the airwaves since 2009 and has been grabbing sales here and there. And she's a regular fixture in the news as well. At No.9 is singer Beyonce. Her earnings and popularity is also one to be noted in the past year.
Rounding up the Top 10 are Germany's Angela Merkel (No.4) and Westpac's Gail Kelly (No.8). Other notables in the Top 100 are Sarah Palin (No.16), actress Angelina Jolie (No.21), singer Madonna (No.29), models Heidi Klum (No.39) and Gisele Bundchen (No.72), Twilight author Stephenie Meyer (No.49), tennis sisters Serena Williams (No. 55) & Venus Williams (No.60) and fashion designers Vera Wang (No.91) and Donna Karan (No.99).
