Forbes released its annual billionaires list so we can all keep ourselves informed of the 1,426 people in the world whose wealth we'll likely never be able to even fathom. Though, this year's list does include quite a few fashion names, so maybe when we get around to creating that luxury empire...
Anyway, Zara titan Amancio Ortega, no stranger to the list, came in at number three right in between Bill Gates and Warren Buffett with a net worth of $57 billion. LVMH's Bernard Arnault is just a few notches below at number 10 with a net worth of $29 billion. L'Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt came in at number nine with $30 billion, making her the world's richest woman.
New to the list are Tory Burch with $1 billion, and Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana with $2 billion each (as they continue to stand trial for tax evasion). At 46, Burch is America's second-youngest self-made female billionaire after Spanx founder Sara Blakely.
