At the tender age of 36, Yoshikazu Tanaka has created a $1.2 billion fortune for himself through founding the social networking game operator GREE and snapping up a host of mega gaming companies. Despite coming up against stiff competition over the last few years as a result of newcomers to the scene including Apple’s App Store and Google Play, Tanaka has managed to keep the yen rolling in by increasing his staff to boost mobile game development and to introduce more titles. Dark and brooding, Tanaka’s power over the Japanese play market earns him a place on our sexiest billionaires list.

Scott Duncan

Further to a secretive billiuonaire & his (probably designer) hat. US-based Scott Duncan, 31, is America’s youngest billionaire to have inherited his wealth, setting him apart from the tech junkies so prevalent on today’s rich lists. Rumoured to be worth an astounding $6.7 billion, Duncan is heir to his late father Dan Duncan’s energy pipeline empire, Enterprise Products Partners, along with his four siblings. Duncan’s worth has soared in recent years as the firm’s stock has increased exponentially due to high demand for natural oil, gas and petrochemical pipelines. The company currently owns almost 51,000 miles of priceless pipeline, and the Duncan four’s bank balances continue to grow as a result. As of the end of last year, Forbes named Duncan as the 77th richest person in the world. Duncan is said to be single and reside in Houston, Texas, but is so secretive that the true details of his personal life are anyone’s guess.

Eduardo Saverin

Let’s start with a self-made man and the co-founder of a social networking site you may possibly have heard of – Facebook anyone? Born in Brazil, Eduardo Saverin, 31, is said to have a personal fortune of $4.2 billion. He now lives in Singapore after renouncing his US citizenship in 2012 and his fortune continues to grow. He added a cool $1.6 billion to his net worth since August of last year, thanks to the soaring value of Facebook shares. But he is so much more than a pretty face – Saverin now spends his time investing in start-up businesses, such as mobile shopping app ShopSavvy and credit card validation firm, Jumio. He told a Wall Street Journal conference held in Singapore last year that his aim was not to create another Facebook but rather to ensure that what he does next is “fulfilling”. Said to be single, Saverin has been described as the “handsome geek” of the internet – and what more could you ask for than that?

Nathaniel Rothschild

Another top contender for handsome rich billionaires is a true blue Brit with one of the best pedigrees around. Nathaniel Philip Rothschild, 40, of the famous banking dynasty, is officially said to be worth around $2 billion, although rumour has it that he has $100 billion squirrelled away in overseas banks. Born into money, Rothschild attended one of England’s most exclusive prep schools, Eton, before honing his skills at Oxford University. Not only has he dated a supermodel – Petra Nemcova – and a Hollywood A-lister – Natalie Portman – Rothschild has even stepped out with royalty on his arm, once dating Queen Elizabeth II’s cousin. Married once, he is now said to be single and continues to boost his bank balance through canny investments in commodities.

The group also owns a host of other companies, which are shared between Alejandro and his brother Andres. With film-star good looks, the tall, dark and handsome Alejandro now works as a managing director at a New York-based investment firm. As if that wasn’t enough, this billionaire is also a culture vulture – he sits on the board of the Metropolitan Museum of Art – and a charitable soul, appearing on the Board of Directors of the biggest bone marrow donor centre in the world, DKMS Americas. Be still my beating heart.

The 30-year old first appeared on Forbes’ rich list when he was just eight years old, and officially inherited his fortune when he turned 18. He is now the proud owner of assets including a 36,000-hectare woodland in Germany, real estate, art and one of the largest forest holdings in Europe. Said to be single, what he lacks in hair he makes up for in intelligence – he has a bachelor’s degree in theology and economics and a master’s degree from the University of Edinburgh.

Ivanka Trump

Having one of the most recognised surnames in the US has surely done Ivanka Trump no harm when it comes to getting on in the business world, but, while she may have had a leg-up, she’s proven herself to be far more than an heiress to her father, Donald Trump’s fortune.

Boasting stunning looks, Ivanka is a successful businesswoman, writer and fashion model, appearing in a number of prime time television shows.

Known for ‘sexying up’ the Trump name, Ivanka has made her family proud with her glittering career achievements – and she’s even found time to become a mother to two

Holly Branson

Another daughter who has made her billionaire father proud is Holly Branson, offspring of Virgin founder Richard.

Preferring to stay out of the gossip pages, Holly trained as a doctor, earning her degree from London’s prestigious University College and working for the National Health Service at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s neurology department.

Describing herself as ‘passionate about making the world a better place,’ Holly’s biggest test is perhaps yet to come – she will become a mother to twins with her husband Fred Andrews early next year.

Holly, along with brother Sam, will one day inherit their father’s $4.6 billion fortune – in all of its red and white glory.

Charlotte Casiraghi

Hailing from the famous Grimaldi family, number four on Billionaire’s list is Charlotte Casiraghi, who no doubt owes her stunning looks to her mother, Princess Caroline of Monaco and grandmother Grace Kelly.

As well as a flourishing career as a show jumper, this young royal also has a flair for style – she has been shot by famed photographer Mario Testino for the cover of French Vogue – surely the ultimate seal of approval.

She became a mother in 2013, but still found time to be the new face of Gucci Cosmetics collection, with the fashion house gushing at the time: “Charlotte was a natural choice as she embodies the modern iconic Gucci woman. Aside from her striking beauty, she is sophisticated, successful and iconic.”

Petra Ecclestone

The daughter of Formula 1 legend Bernie Ecclestone, Petra Ecclestone, along with her sister Tamara, is well known for her penchant for designer clothes and bags, luxury homes and all round enjoyment of the high-life. A fashion designer, Petra launched her own accessories line named Stark and continues to look for new opportunities abroad.

Married to businessman James Stunt, the pair have a daughter, Lavinia, and one of the largest private homes in the US, the 56,000 square foot Holmby Hill, California mansion that previously belonged to the late Beverly Hills 90210 creator, Aaron Spelling.

This eclectic mix of female powerhouses are an inspiration to many – to some for their business achievements, to others for their successful combining of corporate and family life, and to some for their unashamed devotion to designer handbags (ahem, Petra Ecclestone). Whatever your style, these billionaires have something to suit.

A self-made billionaire, US-based Tory Burch is said to have a net worth of around $1 billion thanks to her work as a fashion designer and business woman.

The beautiful blonde 47-year-old proves that a billion dollar fortune can all be started with a simple pair of shoes – she remains best known for a $200 pair of ballet flats named after her mother, Reva.

Burch’s empire continues to expand – as well as adding fragrance to her line, she also opened a flagship store on Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive and began a licensing deal with Fossil in 2013.

Amanda Hearst


A top  contender in the Billionaire’s list of sexy, moneyed ladies is Amanda Hearst, the stunning great-granddaughter of publishing mogul William Randolph Hearst.

Heiress to the multi-billion dollar Hearst Corporation, this New York socialite, 29, uses her looks and connections to full advantage – she models for Lilly Pulitzer and works as a member of environmental non-profit organization, Riverkeeper. She is also the founder of an organization dedicated to the closing of puppy mills, Friends of Finn, as well as being a spokeswoman for ethical fashion brand Maison de Mode.

Amanda was once rumoured to spend $136,000 on clothes, beauty treatments and other luxurious frivolities by Harper’s Bazaar magazine, however she has always denied this figure.
She once told the New York Times that she preferred to lay low, saying: “I try to stay in line and not be a jerk. I’ve always been conscious that if I really screw up people might notice.

Georgina Bloomberg

Being the daughter of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg may have helped Georgina Bloomberg get ahead in life, but that doesn’t mean she has rested on her laurels – far from it. Educated at NYU, Georgina is an award winning horse rider and a novelist to boot, writing two books for young adults centred around competitive horse racing.

Determined to stay away from the salacious celebrity world, Georgina prefers instead to focus on her work with a number of a charitable organizations and her interest in baseball – she is a lifelong Knicks fan.

Heiress to an estimated $11 billion (AU$12.5 billion) fortune, Georgina is now a doting mum to son Jasper Michael Brown Quintana with partner Ramiro Quintana.

Sara Blakely

Another self-made woman on our Billionaire’s list is Spanx founder, Sara Blakely. This powerful businesswoman – said to be worth $1 billion – has legions of female (and likely male) fans across the globe, but has yet to finish changing the way in which women wear their clothes.

Indeed, the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire has many more ideas in the pipeline, including the roll out of denim to her unstoppable line. A line of retail stores in East Coast malls have also recently been created by the busy Blakely, proving that billions can be made from a gem of an idea in a Florida bedroom. Building up the business from scratch, Blakely had no financial backers and had to beg hosiery mills to create her product. Of those tough early years, this impressive businesswoman recalls: “I did not have the most experience in the industry or the most money. But I cared the most.”

Vanisha Mittal

Vanisha Mittal, the daughter of Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal and heiress to his $16.5 billion fortune, is seemingly far more focused on charitable work than on the glamorous side of being a young, female billionaire.

A graduate of the European Business School and the University of London, Vanisha has overseen a number of major charity schemes including a project in India which worked to improve the quality of life for the inhabitants of rural towns.
Sadly for men across the globe, Vanisha married in 2004, enjoying a celebration befitting a billionaire – a rumoured $60 million wedding to investment banker Amit Bhatia. Held at the 17th Century Chateau Vaux le Vicomte, special guests included pop princess Kylie Minogue.
