Women on the arms of wealthy men always share some important qualities. They are often well-dressed, poised, and have a skill set that they used to both attract their guy and to maintain their own sense of wealth and fame unconnected of the man with the power. Let’s take a look at some of the qualities of a few high profile wives of millionaires.
Wendi Deng Murdoch is an Chinese-American businesswoman, actress and producer. She was driven to learn English from an American family that was doing business in China and she later followed them to the United States. Her interest in education and business was in full force and she graduated from both California State University at Northridge and got an MBA at the Yale school of management. During her time in school she cultivated a group of acquaintances that allowed her to find a job that got her in contact with even more influential people. She worked in television and film for some time working as both an actress and film producer. It was after her first marriage that she attracted the attention of wealthy Rupert Murdoch. She attracted his attention while she was working for her company. They were married on his yacht in 1999.
Another high profile woman who managed to capture her millionaire, although differently than Wendi, is Melania Trump. Born in Slovenia as Melanija Knavs she came from a middle class family that worked in manufacturing. Melania became interested in photography and design and began learning languages. Starting from when she was young, she was able to enter modeling, signing with an Italian modeling firm when she was eighteen. She worked with several modeling agencies and eventually ended up with Donald Trump’s Model Management company. They met in 1996, at a New York Fashion Week event. They were married in 2005 in Palm Beach, Florida.
Unlike the first two women, who married men who gained their status through wealth, Kate Middleton was able to catch a member of the royal family of England. She grew up in Berkshire, England and attended the University of St. Andrews where she studied art history. That was where she met her future husband. They began dating in 2003. Meanwhile, Kate was also working as an accessory buyer with a clothing chain. She also worked with her family’s company working in marketing and design. With her profile skyrocketed by her connection with the Royal Family she has been able to develop trends and set fashion standards for women around the world.
As you can see from all of these women, there first step was to make themselves accomplished. Many of them came from humble beginnings, but had a passion. Wendi was passionate about business and film. Melania cared about fashion, as did Kate. They were living their lives as successfully as possible and that got the attention of the men they ultimately married. It wasn’t enough to just be stunningly beautiful, although without a doubt they are. Women with a passion and with their own influence are irresistible to men of all kinds, especially wealthy ones.
