Rihanna features alongside Daisy Edgar-Jones, make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury and the Queen in a list of powerful women.

The annual Vogue 25 list selects “the women of the moment who are leading us through 2020 with prescience, power and poise”.

This year’s edition seeks to highlight how, during the coronavirus pandemic, “as priorities shifted so did the spotlight”.

The magazine describes Edgar-Jones as “the star of the lockdown must-watch Normal People” and notes that the BBC Three show’s release during Covid-19 “accelerated” her “rise to fame”.

It also suggests the pandemic has “deepened” the Queen’s relevance.

2019 Booker Prize winner Bernardine Evaristo features on the list, as does Labour MP Dawn Butler.
