Has anyone ever asked you the question, “would you rather marry someone who was hot, or rich?” Most people have a preference for one or the other, but what if you could have both? These people might be rare, but they do exist. Your best bet is to look for the people with money, and with any luck, one of them will be attractive. Just be prepared for a LOT of competition. You aren’t the first one to have this idea.
Life might seem easy for people with money. They never have to worry about bills, they can travel wherever they want any time, and they have the best of everything. On the other hand, good looking people have the opportunity to make money off their looks by modeling, or becoming a movie star (if Megan Fox can do it, anyone can). First generation rich people probably had to work for their success and bank balances, but what about their kids?
As if being born rich wasn’t enough, these billionaire offspring also have smoking good looks going for them. Some people have all the luck.
Although there has been some controversy over whether Donald Trump is actually a billionaire, his 32-year-old daughter Ivanka is way too attractive to not include in this list. She is now the Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions at The Trump Organization, but she was a successful model in her younger days. She walked runways for designers like Versace and Thierry Mugler, and appeared in the pages of Seventeen, and Harper’s Bazaar. Ivanka is a successful business woman in her own right with her own jewelry, and clothing lines, but she is also heir to her father’s $3.9 billion fortune.
Sam & Holly Branson
Sam and Holly Branson’s father is British billionaire and founder of The Virgin Group, Richard Branson. According to Forbes 2012 list of billionaires, Branson is the 6th richest citizen of the UK. They may have to share their inheritance, but that shouldn’t be a problem, considering The Virgin Group owns over 400 companies. Sam and Holly are both off the market, Sam is married to actress and descendent of UK royalty, Isabella Calthorpe in 2013. Holly is a licensed medical doctor, and she works on the charitable side of The Virgin Group, helping them set up clinics in Africa.
Nicky & Paris Hilton
The great great-granddaughters of Conrad Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels, both grew up with millions of dollars at their disposal, but they used their privilege in very different ways. Paris has always been the party animal. She became a household name after a leaked sex tape and the reality show, The Simple Life, and then went on to attempt a music career. Nicky on the other hand, worked as a model, and fashion designer, and has more interest in business. Either way, they are both considered celebutantes because of their family name, and their grandfather, Barron Hilton‘s $2.5 billion fortune.
The 40-year-old daughter of fashion industry mogul, Ralph Lauren, definitely does not look her age. Dylan Lauren, and her two brothers are heirs to their father’s still growing $7.5 billion fortune, but none of them have followed in his fashionable designer footsteps. David Lauren works in marketing at the Ralph Lauren Corporation, Andrew Lauren is a filmmaker, and Dylan opened her own candy shop, Dylan’s Candy Bar, which claims to be the largest candy store in the world, in New York in 2001. In addition to being gorgeous, Dylan was also named one of the 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers by US Weekly in 2007. Not really a surprise considering her father is an iconic American designer.
Bernard Arnault, Antoine’s father, is none other than the CEO of Louis Vuitton. Antoine may not have to work at all, but he is currently the Head of Communications for Louis Vuitton. His good looks and money have also landed him a beautiful Russian supermodel girlfriend, Natalia Vodianova. With money to spare, he is also a professional poker player, which means he’s probably pretty smart too. He stands to inherit a cool $41 billion, but at least he is working for his money. Kind of.
The daughter of Indian steel magnate, Lakshmi Mittal knows how to enjoy the riches she was born into. When Vanisha Mittal married investment banker, Amit Bhatia in 2004, she threw a lavish wedding fit for, well, the offspring of a billionaire. The wedding has the distinction of being the second most expensive and extravagant wedding of all time. She has graduated from business school, and works as a Director in her father’s company. Mittal’s estimated inheritance is currently around $16 billion.
Billionaire hedge-fund manager, Marc Lasry‘s daughter Emma attempted a music career in 2010 with her song “Closet Bi*ch”. The video went viral, but not for the reasons she was hoping. People accused her of being a spoiled brat who got whatever she wanted because her dad could pay for it. (Khloe Kardashian was paid to make a cameo in the video, so can you really blame them?) Emma ended up taking the video of her first song offline, and she hasn’t released any music since. At least she still has the looks and money.
Dubbed the “Russian Paris Hilton”, Anna Anisimova is also the daughter of Russian metal magnate, Vasily Anisimov. His eldest daughter was killed by the Russian mafia in 2000, so Anna has lived in New York for years for her own safety. Although she has tried modeling, and even acting, she is basically just a socialite. She tried her hand at real estate, purchasing Diane Von Furstenberg‘s (for $23 million of her father’s money) Manhattan home, but ended up losing money in the deal after the house was found to violate height restrictions. She may not be the best business woman, and her lavish lifestyle might catch up with her eventually, but at least she’s beautiful, right?
Petra and Tamara Ecclestone
The Formula One CEO, Bernard Ecclestone, has not one, but two, beautiful daughters who have dabbled in the modeling business. Petra and Tamara Eccelstone are both British socialites, and while they have also tried out careers in entertainment (Tamara), and fashion design (Petra), they tend to enjoy their lavish lifestyle a little too much to bother with working. Petra’s wedding in 2011 cost more than $12 million, and she is currently the owner of Aaron Spelling‘s former mansion, The Manor, which she bought for $85 million.
The Hearst Corporation was started in 1887 by William Randolph Hearst as a publisher of local newspapers. The company has grown to include over 300 magazines and newspapers around the world, including Cosmopolitan, Esquire, and ELLE. Amanda Hearst is the great-granddaughter of the founder, and the niece of Patty Hearst. She has worked as a model, and she appeared on covers of Town & Country and International Harper’s Bazaar. She is currently an associate market editor at Marie Claire (another magazine owned by Hearst).
