Casey Johnson is not just the daughter of Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets, she is also heiress to the immense Johnson & Johnson fortune. Born to be a billionaire, Casey even attended prep schools alternately with Paris Hilton and Ivanka Trump. She’s done all the usual things that heiresses do, like working as an assistant publicist for a major PR firm while doing philanthropy on the side, of course. Casey keeps pretty busy these days. Last year she adopted a child from Kazakhstan while doing research and development on some all-natural skin-care products. Casey plans to unveil her Journey product line in the near future.
7. Dylan Lauren
Dylan Lauren, now in her early 30s, is the daughter of fashion mogul Ralph Lauren, but seems to still have visions of sugar plum fairies dancing in her head. After she graduated from Duke University, Dylan developed a hip new fashion-forward candy store called Dylan’s Candy Bar (DCB), which currently has four locations in the U.S. DCB not only has a unique candy-themed layout, but the store sells its own line of candies, chocolates and branded clothing. Scouting is underway for future locations. Dylan may be the heiress to daddy’s billion-dollar fashion empire, but that isn’t stopping her from creating her own wealth in the meantime
8. Hind Hariri
Hind Hariri.Worth a cool $1.6 billion, Hind Hariri is the youngest billionaire in the world. Still single and in her early 20s, Hind inherited her fortune after the assassination of her politician and businessman father, Rafik Hariri, in 2005. Hind graduated from the Lebanese American University in Beirut that same year. Since then, Hind’s been keeping busy with her social-events calendar. She even campaigned for her brother, Saad, in the latest elections in Lebanon.
9. Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton is unique amongst the heiress clan. Paris doesn’t merely exist, she practically has her own orbit. Known as a celebutante (a mélange of celebrity and debutante), Paris frequently finds herself in the news and, more recently, involved with the law. Born in 1981, Paris is the oldest of the four children of Kathy Richards and Richard Hilton of the Hilton Hotel chain. Hiltons are predestined for stardom as their family tree is populated with business tycoons and entertainment personalities including Elizabeth Taylor and Zsa Zsa Gabor. Paris’s status as an heiress is certified as she reportedly inherited between $30 and $50 million after the death of her great grandfather, Conrad Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels. Money has mostly provided her with the means to be a socialite/party girl, but Paris has also dabbled in acting (the 2005 horror remake House of Wax) even trying her hand at a reality television show called The Simple Life with co-celebutante Nicole Richie. Paris has even given singing a shot. Her album Paris was released in 2006 under her own label, Heiress Records. She also co-authored a book called Confessions of an Heiress. In late 2006, she started marketing a perfume, conveniently called Heiress.
