Two of the biggest names at Apple made it onto Vanity Fair‘s 2016 ‘New Establishment’ list that ranks the top names in Silicon Valley, Hollywood and Wall Street. But instead of including designer Jony Ive, the fashion mag bumped him for ugly-shirt-lovin Eddy Cue.

Steve Jobs’ widow Laurene Powell Jobs was also included in the ‘New Establishment’ list. She came in at 73rd, while Tim Cook was ranked 11th and Eddy Cue was slotted at 54. Powell Jobs was praised for using her wealth for philanthropic endeavors.

“One of the world’s richest women (net worth: approximately $17 billion), Steve Jobs’s widow is pouring her wealth into Emerson Collective, a philanthropic organization that, like Priscilla Chan’s (No. 60), is structured as a limited-liability corporation.”

In its section on Tim Cook, Vanity Fair focused on the Apple CEO’s refusal to assist the FBI to unlock the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone which would have compromised the security of all iOS users. Cook’s stance was for privacy and encryption was one of the most talked about subjects in the country for weeks during the company’s public battle with the FBI.

Other notable figures on the list included Apple board member Bob Iger, former Apple investor Carl Icahn, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Zuckerberg, Snapchat’s Evan Spiegal, Elon Musk, Beyoncé, Chris Pratt, Shonda Rhimes and Sheryl Sandberg.
