Fashion and Purpose: All the best looks from the 2018 TIME 100 Gala

TIME 100 is one of the most anticipated lists each year as the renowned and credible publication celebrates the most influential pioneers, leaders, titans, artists and icons. TIME announces, “TIME’s annual list of the world’s most influential people is a designation of individuals whose time, in our estimation, is now. The TIME 100 isn’t a measure of power, though many on the list wield it. Nor is it a collection of milestones accumulated. As our staff considers candidates, we often find ourselves wowed by those with stunning lifetime achievements.” This year’s lineup is also quite special because not only does the magazine recognize all kinds of people from different walks of life, as TIME puts it, “Influence increasingly knows no single zip code and no minimum age,” it also champions women who stood up against all forms of inequality and sexual misconducts brought about the wave of the #MeToo movement. “While we remain much too far from gender parity in global leadership, there are more women than ever on this year’s TIME 100—proof that there are ways of changing the world beyond traditional power structures.”
