In their annual survey of the year’s most influential creative figures, Ad Age has named directors Patty Jenkins and Kate and Laura Mulleavy to their Creativity 50 feature—a list of the year’s most influential creative figures.
Jenkins was highlighted for helming her female-power studio blockbuster, Wonder Woman, which broke the record for biggest-grossing live-action film directed by a woman, domestic and worldwide, while wowing the critics, and has, to date, grossed a global total of more than $821.7 million.
The Mulleavys, previously known for founding the luxury fashion brand Rodarte, branched out this year, making their directing debut with the feature film Woodshock, starring Kirsten Dunst as a drug-adled, grief-stricken young woman wandering the woods.
Other 2017 honorees include writer/director/producer Jordan Peele, Publicis Worldwide Global Chief Creative Officer Bruno Bertelli, and Burger King Global CMO Fernando Machado.
