The term "influencer" is readily-tossed around style blogs with hopes that a post will get a few retweets or convince someone to buy an item from an unknown brand. But how influential are these people, really?
According to Time's "100 Most Influential People in the World" list, only two people in the fashion industry have the right to call themselves influencers: Michael Kors and J.Crew President Jenna Lyons. That's it.
Now, we're not saying that other people in the style world aren't influential, that's quite absurd, but it takes a lot of clout to get near Kors or Lyons' sphere of influence. So get cracking, we want to see YOU on this list next year.
