The Most Influential New Yorkers of 2011

In New York, creating a “short list” of the most fascinating, powerful people

that make this city whirl and twirl is no easy feat. But once again we’ve done it—and narrowed down the names to a broad mix of personalities, many whose impact extends beyond the five boroughs. Some are mainstays, some are rising stars—whether they’re altering the skyline or a hemline—these people are the ones on top. Bottom line.

The Clarins Girls

Sisters Virginie and Claire, along with Jenna and Prisca Courtin-Clarins, are granddaughters of Jacques Courtin-Clarins, who founded the skin-care company Clarins. No longer just synonymous with beauty, these girls are now known for their fashion and philanthropy.

These model-like, breathtaking beauties recently signed on with Lauren Bush’s Feed Project and made waves at this year’s NYFW, being compared to the likes of other high-profile glamour girls: The Miller sisters (who took Manhattan’s social scene by storm in the 90s). This year, the entire cousin clan made Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed List.
