Today's equivalent of Julia Childs?

I was at the newly remodeled Smithsonian American History Museum where they have Julia Child's kitchen. I overheard a little girl ask who Julia Child's was and her mom replied, "She's just like Rachel Ray." Ow, not really. But, I was talking about it with my friend and she asked, "Who is the equivalent of Julia Childs today?" Is there any female chef, who has that level of fame, outside the culinary world, and is really a chef? Someone that the average child would know as well as she knows Rachel Ray or Sandra Lee?
