São Paulo, Brazil: Adriana Barra Adriana Barra is a São Paulo boutique whose eponymous, boho chic–inspired apparel has become a must-have for many young, upmarket women. Barra, the brand’s stylist, opened the boutique in 2001, bucking the rage for clinging, revealing outfits. Barra believed there was a market for looser, flowing clothing featuring forward prints that are heavy on florals. Now, her 1,300-square-foot shop grosses $3 million a year. The rustic boutique, tucked inside a cozy villa, looks like the living room of an ex-hippie globe-trotter: bamboo walls, wooden closets, a curving wooden Balinese sofa, Persian throw rugs, a tree-trunk coffee table, an aquarium and her pet golden retriever.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
