FORTUNE's Most Powerful Women in Business 
FORTUNE's annual ranking of America's leading businesswomen
Rose Marie Bravo
Rank: 13 (2004 rank: 13)

Company: Burberry
Based in: Britain
Title: CEO
Bravo, Bravo! After eight years pushing Burberry's distinctive plaid to all corners of the globe and boosting gross profit margins to an astonishing 59%, the 54-year-old American announced she will be giving up the CEO title next year to become vice chairman of the $1.3 billion raincoat-turned-fashion-house. The only cloud on the horizon: the loss of chief saleswoman Kate Moss, caught snorting cocaine this summer by a British tabloid.
