Dasha Zhukova 

FOUNDER, GARAGE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART

The art collector and philanthropist, who is married to Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, was also a onetime fashion designer and magazine editor. Zhukova founded the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture in Moscow in 2011, which became the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art last year. Now, she’s moving the museum—which is currently housed in a Shigeru Ban–designed prefab pavilion—to a new location in the Vremena Goda, a Soviet-era landmark, hiring no less than Rem Koolhaas as her architect. The two appeared on the cover of WSJ magazine this year for a cover story about the project.
