DJs are in many ways the new superstars of the music world. On this list, the spotlighted superstars include Harley Viera-Newton, Leigh Lezark, DJ Kiss and Chelsea Leyland. Leyland also wins for most daring DJ booth pose (above):

With the likes of Valentino, Burberry and Fendi booking her to DJ at their parties, Chelsea Leyland is a firm favorite among the fashion elite. With playlists mixing classic rock, pop and punk, she took the jump from London to New York in her stride.

Also on Bridgeman’s list: A pair of BBC Radio 1 presenters and the LA-based DJ known as the “Lady Gaga of electronic music.”
