The US First Lady rose 39 places – and deposed Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor – in the rankings compiled by Forbes, the business magazine, which praised her formidable combination of style and political nous.

“A fashion icon and an athletic mother of two, she’s Jacqueline Kennedy with a law degree from Harvard and street sense from Chicago’s South Side,” the magazine said, adding that Mrs Obama “has made the office of First Lady her own.”
