Welcome to a list of some of the richest men in the world, who have made their money from everything you could think of, from oil and chemical engineering to property, music, technology and savvy investments. But who are the women they’ve loved over the years, and how long have they been together? The gorgeous wives, the net worth of these power couples, and where the wives come from and of course, how they met. Let’s check out the hottest wives of billionaires.
Jim Clark and Kristy Hinze
The gorgeous Australian model Kristy Hinze is married to the founder of Netscape. In addition to her long legs walking the runway, she is an actress that landed a modeling gig posing in sexy clothing in Victoria’s Secret catalogs. Despite the massive amount of wealth the two share, people are only human, and arguments are bound to happen. Kristy was caught in between an explosive argument in St. Bart’s last spring with her husband and Ken Reader, the owner of Comanche who is one of the top wealthy sailors in the world. The reason for the fight is unknown, but it became so bad that Kristy decided to leave the island without her husband.
Last summer they listed their $137 million mansion in Palm Beach for sale, built in the 1930s. The house has a total of two elevators, six bedrooms and a living room that is 15 meters long.
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner
Real estate mogul Donald Trump, but the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree when it comes to the man she married. Much like her father, Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner is a billionaire real estate investor, the publisher of the New York Observer and is the senior advisor on Donald’s team.
Ivanka might be teased in the U.S. because of her father, but in Japan, she has become a big hit because they believe she has it all. Owning a successful business, a wealthy husband and a father that became a president. While we are familiar with seeing her in conservative clothing, in 2006, she modeled in a few revealing outfits for Stuff magazine. After she had met Jared, she walked away from the socialite lifestyle and her modeling career.
Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault
Hayek is a critically acclaimed actress, she is married to François-Henri Pinault. He’s a French businessman and the CEO of Kering

Her breakthrough role was in the 2002 film Frida as Mexican painter Frida Kahlo for which she was nominated in the category of Best Actress for an Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and Golden Globe Award. This movie received widespread attention and was a critical and commercial success.
Katsia Zingarevich and Anton Zingarevich
When it comes down to it, Russian businessmen just really, really, really love to marry supermodels – or supermodels really like to marry Russian businessmen. Either way, Katsia Zingarevich, and Anton Zingarevich are the perfect examples of this match made in Victoria’s Secret heaven. Yep, this VS model and former ‘Supermodel of the World’ is married to the former owner of Reading Football Club in 2009. The pair have since welcomed their first child into the world and is still happily married. Yay!
Flavia Sampaio and Eike Batista
Although Flavia Sampaio’s husband may be a household name – this strong and independent female boss definitely works just as hard! This lawyer, businesswoman, and founder of an impressive non-profit organization is married to Eike Batista. As the former richest man in Brazil, Batista is known and admired across the world (although maybe not recently). He has since been sent to prison for money laundering, while Flavia supports from the sidelines. Unfortunately, this means their funds are dwindling slightly…
Stephanie Seymour and Peter M. Brant
Seymour is an actress and modeling icon, she is married to industrialist and businessman, Peter M. Brant.
Stephanie Michelle Seymour is an American model and actress. Seymour has modeled for many notable fashion magazines and designers and has posed for several well-known photographers including Herb Ritts, Richard Avedon, Gilles Bensimon, and Mario Testino.
Princess Ameera and Al-Waleed bin Talal
Life is full of ups and downs, but this Princess has gone through more than your average! When she was younger, her parents got divorced and she lived with her grandparents, until one day she went on a school assignment to interview Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who was 28 years older than her. She ended up marrying him and taking a royal title, but they got divorced in 2013. Perhaps the age gap was too big an obstacle, or it wasn’t loved after all. The royal couple had almost $18 billion in their bank accounts, so it wasn’t money trouble!
Melania and Donald Trump
Okay, we’re pretty sure this woman does NOT need an introduction – considering she is now the First Lady of the United States of America – but we’ll give her one anyway. As the third wife of the famous businessman and now President of the United States, Donald Trump, Melania Trump has stood by her husband since 2005. The pair has one child together and currently live off his $3.1 billion net worth in their new home, The White House. No biggie.
Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich
Considering her hubby is the elusive Roman Abramovich (AKA one of the most successful Russian billionaires in the business) it’s fair to say that Dasha Zhukova will never have to work a day in her life. Nevertheless, this Russian businesswoman likes to keep her own man on her toes and pay for dinner every so often. As the founder of Garage Magazine and the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, this art collector definitely knows a thing or two about making and spending money.
Claudia Barilla and Guy Laliberte
It took us this long to get to a swimsuit model? That’s shocking, but we are finally here everyone. Claudia Barilla was a swimsuit model prior to marrying Guy Laliberte, a French-Canadian who came up with Cirque du Soleil. The lovely couple has two children and Barilla is very active in charity, focusing on at-risk youths. Her charity helps children make good decisions through the use of circus arts.
Circus arts? What exactly does this mean, do the children learn how to walk the tightrope? I hope that doesn’t mean clowns. I know there are a lot of creepy clown stories, but last week I was on a train and saw half a clown. The guy was done with his day and was taking off his makeup and also had his wig and nose put away. You think seeing a clown is scary, take a look at half of a clown. That was some scary stuff right there.
Fabiana Flosi and Bernie Ecclestone
Thirty-eight-year-old Fabiana Flosi is married to an 86 year old billionaire named Bernie Ecclestone. Bernie owns a group of companies that include the FIA Formula One World Championship. He worked for the company for 40 years and eventually acquired rights to the organization. One of the couples most expensive purchases is a £24 million chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland. Their daughter Tamara owns a mansion in London that has 57 rooms, and she mentioned that she only occupies four of the rooms in her house.
While this is no laughing matter, in August 2016 Fabiana’s mother was kidnapped. The police were hunting down a man that threatened to murder her mother after sending Fabiana a gruesome video in the mail of a woman beheaded. The kidnappers requested eight days for Fabiana and her billionaire husband to send £28million in ransom. In less than two weeks, the police found Fabiana’s mother tied up in a house in Cotia, Brazil.
Kirsty and Ernesto Bertarelli
It’s no secret that the Bertarelli family have a lot of money, but how much are they really worth? Well, it’s believed that Kirsty’s husband, Ernesto Bertarelli, is worth a whopping $9.1 billion! Luckily, it seems as though this former Miss UK isn’t just a pretty face, as Kirsty is also a signed recording artist. In fact, she co-wrote the All Saints hit, ‘Black Coffee.’ Sure, money is great and everything, but that song really is something to be proud of.
Aleksandra and Andrey Melnichenko
Aleksandra Melnichenko was a part of a pop group in the 1990s when she was 17 years old in Serbia called Models. The group managed to complete several albums during the five-year term of their music group.

He is the only Billionaire on our hottest wives of billionaires list who is 7 years younger than his Wife.

Elisabetta Gregoraci and Flavio Briatore
Although Elisabetta Gregoraci made a name for herself in her own right, it’s fair to say that her marriage to the formula one manager, Flavio Briatore, has pushed her name even further into the limelight. The couple tied the knot in 2008 – y’know, after Fernando Alonso drove the bride to the wedding venue. No biggie. Unfortunately, the pair has since parted ways, but we can only imagine that Elisabetta will get some of his $200 million net worth.
