These Billionaires Have Stunning Trophy Wives, and These Photos Prove It
From fancy cars to gigantic mansions, billionaires seem to have it all. And we’d be lying if we didn’t fantasize about what we would do with all that money if it were ours. There seems to be another advantage of being rich, too: These billionaires can provide for just about anyone.
Is it for love or money? We may never know for sure when it comes to some of these marriages. Either way, here are photos of the beautiful trophy wives often seen with the richest men in the world (including a very familiar face on page 9).
1. Suzanne Ircha, wife of New York Jets owner Woody Johnson
Suzanne Ircha made out big when she married the owner of the New York Jets and fourth generation member of Johnson & Johnson. Bloomberg reports Woody Johnson is worth $4.2 billion and ranks within the world’s richest 500 people. He reportedly purchased the Jets for $635 million.
It’s clear he likes beautiful women, too, as Ircha always looks stunning. To go along with her beauty, she also has brains, too. New York Family notes she has a degree from Cornell and a background with Wall Street.

2. Donna Spangler, wife of Dr. Richard Benveniste
He may be 74, but periodontist Richard Benveniste can still attract beautiful women. The New York Post notes Donna Spangler is in her 50s and looks totally amazing for her age. She’s lived with Benveniste for over 20 years and even admits she’s a very traditional trophy wife. And with her bleached blonde hair, short dresses, and size-2 figure, she’s exactly what we would have pictured.

3. Oleksandra Nikolayenko, wife of casino mogul Phil Ruffin
This Ukranian beauty married into quite a bit of wealth when she tied the knot with Phil Ruffin, a billionaire with a net worth of $2.1 billion. Zimbio explains Nikolayenko, also known as Miss Ukraine, captured the eye of Ruffin when she was in her 20s. The two married when she was 27 and he was 72.
Ruffin has made the Forbes list of richest people many times thanks to oil production, casinos, and greyhound racing tracks. We’re sure Nikolayenko is reaping the benefits.

4. Francesca Pascale, wife of prime minister Silvio Berlusconi
Here’s another beauty who married a man nearly three times her age. Francesca Pascale explains she tried to slip Italian billionaire Silvia Berlusconi her number when she was just in her teens. Then, years later, the two dated and got engaged. While they both swear it’s true love, we’re wondering if the money has something to do with it.
Not everyone’s a fan of Pascale and Berlusconi’s marriage, either. The Guardian explains Pascale’s parents questioned why their daughter, who was just 28 when they got engaged, would want to marry a 77-year-old.

5. Ricki Lander, girlfriend of Patriots owner Robert Kraft
If you’ve watched Ugly Betty or True Blood, you may recognize Ricki Lander for her small guest roles. But that’s not where she’s getting the majority of her money anymore. She’s with the billionaire owner of the Patriots, Robert Kraft, People reports. Lander is in her late 30s while Kraft is in his late 70s, too.
Their relationship has caused some controversy, too. Many were skeptical when Kraft walked out with this much younger woman after his first wife died at 68.

6. Wendi Deng, ex-wife of CEO Rupert Murdoch
They may not be together anymore, but this beauty made out with a lot of money during her time as Rupert Murdoch’s wife. The Richest explains Deng married the famous media mogul and friend of Trump back in 1999. At the time, it was Murdoch’s third marriage, and it thrust Deng into the spotlight big time.
Perhaps it was the 40+ year age gap that did them in. Either way, there’s no denying Murdoch lost a real beauty.
Next: She was gorgeous in the 90s and she’s still beautiful today.
7. Eloise Broady, wife of Paul Mitchell hair product founder John Paul DeJoria
He may have been homeless once, CNBC reports, but now, John Paul DeJoria is worth $3.1 billion. His Paul Mitchell hair products are some of the best selling on the market, and they catapulted him to billionaire status. And DeJoria, who’s now in his mid-70s, has a beautiful woman on his arm, of course.
Eloise Broady is known for her past work as a model and an actress. She may be in her 60s now, but she’s looking just as good as ever.
Next: She’s known for being a Victoria’s Secret model.
8. Katsia Damonkova, wife of Russian businessman Anton Zingarevich
Anton Zingarevich is well-acquainted with the lifestyle of the rich and famous, as The Richest notes his father was a famous Russian billionaire. Zingarevich, of course, inherited some wealth and attended only the finest boarding schools growing up.
Back in 2008, he met supermodel Katsia Damonkova, and the two fell in love. They married just a year later and even had a child together. And there’s no doubt Damonkova is enjoying the ultra-lavish lifestyle.
Next: You’re definitely familiar with this trophy wife.
9. Melania Trump, wife of President Donald Trump
We’re all familiar with this ultra-famous (and rich) celebrity-turned-presidential duo. And many also know the story behind how these two met. Donald Trump reportedly loves his wife’s kindness and low-maintenance attitude — and of course, he’s always loved her beauty. As for how Melania Trump fell for her husband, she says she likes that he’s “real.” (And his help with her modeling career and expenses didn’t hurt, either.)
In case you’re wondering, Donald Trump is worth over $3 billion, too.
Next: She was pretty, but she had a tumultuous relationship with her super-rich husband.
10. Petra Ecclestone, ex-wife of art dealer James Stunt
Petra Ecclestone is no stranger to money. Her father was British billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, after all, says Worldemand. She then went on to marry art dealer James Stunt in 2011, who’s worth another $3 billion.
Their relationship seemed tumultuous and didn’t last, however. The two divorced in 2017, and there were rumors stating Stunt may have had a drug problem. Regardless, Ecclestone certainly looked good on his arm.

11. Flavia Sampaio, wife of Brazil’s once richest man, Eike Batista
Any man would be lucky to call Brazilian supermodel Flavia Sampaio their wife. This is particularly true for Eike Batista, the billionaire who once could call himself the richest man in Brazil. Bloomberg notes he’s gotten himself into a lot of trouble in recent years for alleged corruption and lawsuits from his ex-wife, however. It got so bad that in 2015, his net worth sank to $1 billion in debt.
It’s a good thing Sampaio makes money of her own to help support all the issues Batista has had to deal with.
Next: We’re hoping this gorgeous woman likes the circus.
12. Claudia Barilla, wife of Cirque du Soleil co-founder Guy Laliberte
Love the circus? So does Guy Laliberte, CEO of Cirque du Soleil. He’s worth nearly $2 million thanks to his remarkable show fans can’t get enough of. Evidently, the beautiful model Claudia Barilla is also a big fan, as she’s married to Laliberte.
If she looks familiar, you may have seen her on the runway at just 17 years old, which is when she won the Canadian Ford Supermodel of the World competition, says MSN.
Next: This beautiful woman is quite a few years older than her billionaire husband.
13. Miranda Kerr, wife of Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel
He’s worth over $2.5 billion and created one of the most-used apps ever. Not only that, but he’s married to Victoria’s Secret angel Miranda Kerr. Life’s not too bad for Evan Spiegel, who’s accomplished a whole lot for being in his late-20s.
As for Kerr, who’s now getting ready to go into her late 30s, she said her and Spiegel were friends for a long time before they started dating, Business Insider reports. Now, the two have a child together and seem happier than ever.

14. Alexandra Lenas, wife of Napster founder Sean Parker
He’s worth billions and she seemingly adores him — and perhaps that’s why Alexandra Lenas and Sean Parker, the founder of Napster, work so well together.
It’s clear Lenas is absolutely gorgeous, and the photos from their wedding day also show off how stunning she is. Not only that, but Lenas once saved her husband’s life when he accidentally triggered an allergy after eating some nuts, says Business Insider. And we’re betting his billions of dollars are helping her get her budding music career off the ground, too.

15. Jade Foret, wife of French businessman Arnaud Lagardère
The Guardian explains billionaire businessman Arnaud Lagerdère is usually quite private when it comes to his love life. That all changed when he professed his love to the beautiful Jade Foret (who also happens to be half his age). The couple decided to videotape the brazen interaction — but their fellow French countrymen collectively scratched their heads.
Regardless, it seems the two got over the odd filmed interaction and are still going strong. We’re sure the billions of dollars help, too.
