Fortune's writeup from 1998: A merchandising hotshot, she moved from class (Neiman Marcus) to mass (Avon) in 1993--so impressively that she beat out company veterans for the presidency late last year. "What did it for me? It wasn't my education or experience. It's my passion," Jung says. High-energy and high-style, she's heir apparent to CEO Charlie Perrin. In July, Jack Welch recruited her for the GE board.
