Bruno Pavlovsky

Chanel's president of fashion was upbeat when expounding on the company's new strategy of standardising product prices worldwide. "We made a very important decision, to treat our customers the same way everywhere in the world. It was a big decision." It looks like it could be a game changer in luxury retail and help it to develop its share of the Chinese market - and other companies are alreadying following suit. Pavlovsky said: "It's just the beginning of our development in China."

 

Stuart Bingham

The 38-year-old won the 2015 world snooker championship, beating Shaun Murphy 18-15 in the final in Sheffield, England, to take the game's most prestigious title for the first time in his 20-year professional career. After a stuttering start, Bingham demonstrated admirable resolve to fight back from behind and in the process gained an unlikely new fan in tennis great Martina Navratilova, who tweeted: "Stuart Bingham rocks:)".

 

David Cameron

The British prime minister defied all the predictions of pundits and pollsters as his Conservatives pulled off a stunning victory in the general election - a result that dramatically redrew the political map and could redefine the country's future in Europe. Widespread predictions of a close contest with the opposition Labour Party turned out to be wide of the mark, as Cameron won a majority in the House of Commons and five more years in Downing Street.
