    Every year, Forbes lists forecast and report on the biggest game changers across respective fields – and the first one of this year is their annual ’30 under 30.’ ‘Presenting 600 of the brightest young entrepreneurs, innovators and game changers,’ you’re sure to recognise some of the names, including entrepreneur Kylie Jenner, 19, actress Elle Fanning, 18, Margot Robbie, 26, who recently got married, star of Westworld Evan Rachel Wood, 29, and singer Hilary Duff, 29.

    Considering Kylie Jenner is now the second highest-grossing Kardashian in the clan, thanks to her Kylie Cosmetics Line that saw her ¢29 Lip Kits bring in a reported seven figure profit last year, it’s no surprise she landed a spot in the Retail & E-commerce influencer list.

    While actresses like Maleficent’s Elle Fanning, Evan Rachel Wood, who is the lead in HBO’s Westworld (the channel’s most-watched debut series ever) and Suicide Squad’s Margot Robbie (who also has her own production company, LuckyChap Entertainment) have landed on the Hollywood & Entertainment shortlist.

    Singer Hilary Duff made the list thanks to her role in TV series Younger and she’s set to release her sixth studio album, ever since storming onto the scene back in 2002.

    Orange is the New Black star Samira Wiley, 29, is also in the mix, as well as Saturday Night Live‘s first ever Latin American cast member, Melissa Villaseñor, 29.
