Power couple: The Olsens secured a spot on Forbes' 30 Under 30 List.

The cream of the under-30 crop, Forbes has released their second annual list of the best and the brightest young stars.

Determined by a panel of judges looking to find the "entrepreneurial, creative and intellectual best of their generation," the youngsters are described as "engaging, surprising and incredibly hardworking."

The Olsen twins, Alexander Wang and Joseph Altuzarra are obvious fashion names that already scored a slot on the 30 Under 30 Brightest Fashion and Art Stars list last year. Newbie industry names that made the cut this year include Carly Cushnie of Cushnie et Ochs, designers Katie Ermilio and Sally LaPointe, and Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal (valued at $130 million).

The Hollywood category listed Girls creator Lena Dunham and Chloe Moretz as ones to watch, while Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Adele and One Direction were named in the music category.
