The World's Hottest Billionaire Offspring

These dashing youths are not only attractive, but as the children of the world's wealthiest people, they are also devastatingly rich.

Having billionaire parents has its perks, from $60 million weddings to private yachts.

But while some of these heirs have become famous in their own rights as models and businessmen, others have have stayed out of the spotlight, focusing on charity or private work.

Sofia Barclay

Sofia Barclay, 23, is the granddaughter of David Barclay, media and real estate tycoon, estimated to be worth a combined $3.2 billion with her twin brother Frederick.

This beautiful heiress splits her time between London and New York City and attended Westminster School in London.

Sofia has said that she has always wanted to be an actress.

Isha Ambani

The 20-year-old is currently enrolled at Yale and is the only daughter of India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani - an oil tycoon


At 16, Forbes put Isha at number two on their list of heiresses, noting that by then she already had an $80 million share in her father's company, Reliance Industries.

Isha has now grown out of the braces and glasses of her teens and is not only an accomplished pianist, but a student leader at the prestigious Ivy League school.

Sam Branson

The son of Virgin mogul Richard Branson could very well pose as a double for his father, but he does far more than hide in Sir Richard's shadow.

Sam, 26, who graduated from St. Edwards in Oxford, has expressed an interest in becoming a documentary filmmaker and has mostly shied away from the public. However, the young heir is a known friend of Prince Harry.

A few years ago, Sam spent three months trekking across the Arctic and recently set up his own production company.

Like his regal friend, the Virgin heir is frequently listed as one of Britain's most eligible bachelors.

Georgina Bloomberg

Georgina is the daughter of Michael Bloomberg, who is not only New York City's mayor but the 20th richest person in the world.

Georgina, the "rebellious" Bloomberg, has shunned the political and business world of her family to become a professional equestrian.

Over the last few years, Georgina has written two novels for young adults cantered around competitive horse racing with characters that appear to be based on both her and Mayor Mike. 

Beyond being an avid Knicks fan and a member of a number of charity organisations, Georgina is dating baseball player Justin Dalles.

Marta Ortega-Perez

This Spanish beauty is the daughter of Amancio Ortega, the founder of the global fashion firm Inditex, who Forbes says is the fifth richest man in the world.

Rumors have it that Marta, 28, is being groomed by her father to one day take over the international fashion company that owns the Zara retail chain.

However, Marta has been given no easy path and started at the bottom where she stocked shelves and dealt with customers.

This may be hard work, but considering her father is worth $37.5 billion, it's probably worth it.

Marta is also an avid equestrian and recently married Spanish equestrian star Sergio Alvarez Moya.

Anna Anisimova

Once deemed the "Russian Paris Hilton" by New York Magazine, this 26-year-old is an heiress to her father's rapidly increasing metals fortune.

A graduate of New York University, Anna is well known on New York's social scene.

She now she hopes to pursue an acting career in Hollywood and recently listed her Manhattan apartment for $50 million – five times what she paid for it in 2004.

After getting married to film producer Peter Schafer in 2010, Anna's interest in acting grew and she has had a few small film roles.

Vanisha Mittal

Vanisha, 31, is the daughter of the world's foremost steel magnate, Lakshmi Mittal.

A graduate of Cornell University, Vanisha has been highly involved with securing real estate investments across the globe and taking key roles in her father's business.

Nonetheless, the Indian heiress definitely benefits from having one of the richest fathers in the world. For her 2004 marriage to investment banker Amit Bhatia, her father threw her a $60 million wedding, considered one of the most lavish in recent history.  

David Ellison

David Ellison, 29, is the movie star son of Larry Ellison, the co-founder and CEO of Oracle Corporation. 

With the financial backing of his father, David has attempted to become highly involved in Hollywood as both a producer and actor, and starred in the 2006 flop Flyboys.

However, David has recently garnered significant attention for his production company Skydance, which has backed such hits as True Grit and Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol.

Assumed heir of a family fortune currently estimated at $36 billion, David is also an accomplished aerobatic pilot.  

Antoine Arnault

As Head of Communications for Louis Vuitton, Antoine Arnault is seemingly being groomed to follow in the steps of his father Bernard, CEO of the massive luxury company LVMH.

At 34, the Frenchman is on the older side of our list, but age does not seem to be an issue for Natalia Vodianova – Antoine's Russian supermodel girlfriend.

Beyond frequently being known as a "boss" of the fashion world, Antoine enjoys a life of luxury on yacht rides along the coast of Corsica and is ranked as a professional poker player.

With the net worth of his father at an estimated $41 billion, he can probably afford the vacation time.

Amanda Hearst

Five of her relatives are worth $1.9 billion or more and are ranked by Forbes.

The 28-year old is the heiress to the multi-billion dollar Hearst Corporation and graduated from Boston College with a major in art history. Although her parents may not be on the billionaire list, Amanda has five different Hearst family relatives ranked amongst the worlds richest.

Amanda's great-grandfather is frequently cited as the creator of modern tabloid journalism, but Amanda tends to stay out of the spotlight herself. However, about a decade ago Harper's Bazaar published an article claiming the heiress spends $136,000 on herself annually, a figure she vehemently denies.

Beyond the wealth, Amanda has modelled for Tommy Hilfiger and is the founder of Friends of Finn, an organization dedicated to the closing of puppy mills.

Amanda is an associate market editor at Marie Claire.

Dylan Lauren

This graduate of Duke University is the only daughter of legendary fashion icon Ralph Lauren.  

Although she could have easily rested on the laurels of her father, Dylan went out and became a successful businesswoman in her own right. Inspired by Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Dylan created Dylan's Candy Bar, the international and widely successful confectionery chain.

Dylan, 38, is married to hedge fund manager Paul Arrouet and recently came out with a book entitled Unwrap Your Sweet Life.

Anastasia Potanina

The 28-year old Russian bombshell is the daughter of Vladimir Potanina, the metals and media magnet who owns the Russian versions of MTV, VH1 and Cosmopolitan.

Beyond just being rich and beautiful, Anastasia was a world champion in aqua biking, which is essentially competitive jet skiing.

The heiress is also a very good skier, in part thanks to the indoor slope her father built for her at his home in Moscow. 

After breaking her leg, Anastasia has quit aqua biking to pursue a career in sports management.

Petra Eccelstone

Petra, 23, is the daughter of Bernard Ecclestone, CEO of Formula One and perhaps the most glamorous heiress on our list.

Petra lives quite the luxurious lifestyle with multiple million-dollar estates across the world, including the former Spelling estate, once the most expensive home in America, for which she paid $85 million.

It is no surprise that Petra is a former model, but this heiress is a working girl as well. As an ambassador for the Meningitis Trust and an aspiring fashion designer with multiple lines, Petra proudly boasts about working eight hour days.

Nevertheless, Petra's recent wedding cost most than $20 million with performances by Eric Clapton, The Black Eyed Peas and David Guetta, nothing big compared to Bernie's $2.8 billion net worth. 

Emma Lasry

Emma Lasry, 19, is the daughter of Marc Lasry, manager of hedge fund Avenue Capital Group.

Emma is an aspiring singer and made headlines when she released her first music video, "Closet Bitch" on YouTube.

The video became an internet sensation, but not for the best reasons; online commentators took it as a prime example of another spoiled Wall Street heiress taking advantage of her father's deep pockets (it didn't help that Khloe Kardashian was paid to be in the video).

Now the video is down, but Emma seems to have continued working towards her dream of becoming a star by occasionally posting videos of her singing online.

Caroline Jones

Caroline Jones, daughter of BVI Global Fund manager Paul Tudor Jones II is a talented singer/songwriter.

Caroline, 21, is not yet a household name but the folk artist has been working quite hard to change that as of late, performing at numerous high schools and universities as part of her "All Aboard" tour.  

Coming from such a luxurious background seems to have its perks as Caroline has recorded with former Sony Music Entertainment head Tommy Mottola and played alongside Paul Simon and Dave Matthews last month in her hometown in Connecticut.

Beyond all the touring and recording, the starlet hopeful is currently studying creative writing at New York University.
