By on April 28, 2015 in ArticlesEntertainment

Some people inherit lots of money from their relatives. Some people inherit good looks from their relatives. Then there are the lucky few that manage to inherit both lots of money and good looks. If they have also inherited a modicum of intelligence and some business acumen as well, they often do quite well for themselves, separate from their famously wealthy parents. Here is a quick list of some of the wealthiest and most attractive children of billionaires. While beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder, it's clear that having a secure fiscal portfolio also seems to give these men and women a certain glow. With a combined net worth of $189.7 Billion, these 10 people can pay to stay looking young and fabulous until the world stops turning.

Marta Ortega-Perez – Daughter of Amancio Ortega

Dad's Net Worth: $62 Billion

Marta Ortega-Perez is the daughter of Amancio Ortega, the founder of Inditex. If Inditex doesn't sound familiar, maybe its most popular retail brand might — Zara. Like many of the people on this list, Marta will most likely take over her father's company when he retires. Unlike many of the people on this list, however, Marta is probably the only one who actually had to work her way up the ladder to her current spot as an executive with the company. Her first job was working as a retail sales associate and stocker at a local Zara shop. When she's not preparing to take over the family business, she can be found riding horses. She's an accomplished equestrian. In 2012, she married Sergio Alvarez Moya, one of Spain's most well-respected equestrian champions.
