Fashion legend Giorgio Armani has said his nephews and nieces will probably inherit his company, though he has no plans to retire himself. The 84-year-old started out as a window dresser in a Milan department store, before launching his own line in the 1970s. His big break came when he designed Richard Gere’s outfits for the 1980 film American Gigolo, and his clothing ranges are now sold in 46 countries worldwide.
Dustin Moskovitz is one of the lesser-known faces behind Facebook, which he helped create with Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard University in 2004. He was the social networking site’s chief technology officer, but left in 2008 and has since launched workflow software company Asana. The Florida-born 34-year-old and his wife former Wall Street Journal reporter, Cari Tuna, have a foundation called Good Ventures, donating to help tackle malaria and other global issues.
Not a lot is known about 31-year-old Lukas Walton, whose grandparents founded Walmart. He is the 32nd richest person in the world, but his life has not been plain sailing. He suffered cancer as a boy before losing his dad, John Walton, in a tragic plane crash in 2005. He is believed to be an active investor and philanthropist after inheriting his father’s stake in the retail giant.
Alice Walton is the wealthiest woman alive, since L'Oréal heiress Liliane Bettencourt died in September 2017 aged 94. The twice-divorced, childless 69-year-old is one of three heirs to the Walmart fortune, with a huge stake in the retail giant founded by her parents. Her career has been in the arts and finance rather than the family business. She owns luxury homes in Texas and New York, and spends much of her money on horses and artwork.
