Check out these female celebs who happen to have extremely rich boyfriends.

The one piece of advice my wealthy godmother always offered me was that I could “marry more money in 5 minutes than I could make in a lifetime.” Crass, but true.

Janet Jackson


The best way to get over an ex? Snag a wealthy businessman from Quatar. Janet Jackson, 44, got together with Wissam Al Mana — the 30-something director of the Middle Eastern luxury company Al Mana Retail — following her breakup with longtime partner Jermaine Dupri. Jackson and Al Mana went public earlier this year, making appearances at Paris Fashion Week and on the streets of London where she’d been promoting “Why Did I Get Married Too?

Salma Hayek

First came baby, then came marriage for Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault. The 44-year-old actress and the 48-year-old French luxury magnate — he’s the CEO of the PPR group, which oversees Gucci and Balenciaga, among other brands — welcomed daughter Valentina in September 2007. They announced their engagement the following summer only to call it off months later. Reconciliation followed and so did two marriage ceremonies: one in City Hall in Paris and another in Venice. A win for both Hayek and Henri!
Tyra Banks
It takes a strong, confident man to handle Tyra Banks. Enter John Utendahl, the dashing — and deep-pocketed — boyfriend of the over-the-top supermodel and entrepreneur. The pair typically keeps a low profile, but it was a special occasion Monday night when they arrived hand-in-hand to the “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” premiere in New York. Utendahl, who is in his fifties, first hooked up with Banks, 36, in 2007 and they’ve been quietly dating ever since. The businessman is a veteran Wall Street banker and owner of the Utendahl Group, an investment-banking firm.
Naomi Campbell
Naomi Campbell met her real estate mogul boyfriend Vladislav Doronin at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, and now lives with him in Moscow. The 40-year-old supermodel brought Doronin to her appearance on “Oprah” in May. Sitting in the studio audience, he revealed he was legally married but separated from his wife of more than 10 years. “We don’t live together,” he said. Campbell told Oprah, “I like the men to wear the pants. I don’t want to wear the pants. I like men who know what they want, know what they’re doing, make their own decisions.”
Padma Lakshmi
Stunning “Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi recently celebrated her 40th birthday with a lavish dinner party hosted by the wildly wealthy Teddy Forstmann, who is 30 years her senior. The chairman and CEO of IMG talent agency reportedly hired cancan dancers, contortionists, and a marching band. (That is love!) In February, Lakshmi gave birth to her first child, daughter Krishna, now 7 months old. (Krishna’s bio-dad is, reportedly, businessman Adam Dell, the younger brother of computer honcho Michael Dell.)

Giving Back: InStyle’s Shining Stars via [instyle]

In Style‘s Shining Stars

Ali Larter

HER PASSION: THE ART OF ELYSIUM
“At Art of Elysium we work with kids of all ages. From cancer to pneumonia, their conditions vary. You don’t know if they are ever going to get to leave the hospital. Art of Elysium takes actors and artists and pairs them with the children. My first visit was two years ago, and the program keeps growing. We go into various hospitals to read books, play with toys, do different art projects, sometimes just sit with the children and hold their hands. One kid said, ‘I kind of want to talk about Heroes,’ and so I hung out with him and chatted. It’s not changing the world, but it is bringing children a moment of peace.”

Shining Stars 2008, Ali Larter

Alex Cayley

WHAT YOU CAN DO: Donate art supplies, costumes, musical instruments or children’s books. A $30 donation will fund a creative arts workshop for one child. To learn more, visit theartofelysium.org.

Orlando Bloom

HIS PASSION: UNICEF
“As an ambassador for Unicef, I’m a voice for children without basic necessities we take for granted—safe drinking water, electricity, a roof over our heads. It’s heart-wrenching. I’ve traveled to Nepal, and it’s incredible to see what a huge impact the fund has on communities there. I met a 6-year-old named Rita who used to spend half of her day collecting water for her family. The water is not clean, so in these environments an intestinal problem can be a killer for kids. A simple tap, which costs about $20, can provide water to the whole community—for life! Now instead of collecting water all day, Rita can go to school and have the possibility of a better life.”

Alex Cayley

WHAT YOU CAN DO: Donate online at unicef.org, or purchase Unicef items, such as holiday cards, stationery and toys.

Tyra Banks

HER PASSION: THE TZONE FOUNDATION
“When I was young, I went through a very insecure time in my life. No matter how much self-esteem I have now, that girl still lives inside of me. Because of my struggle, I always felt that I had a calling to work with teens. There are so many pressures that come with being a girl, and I want to give young women the strength to succeed in our society in which there are so many difficult images to live up to. In 1999 I started TZone and took a group of girls for a weeklong camping trip in the mountains outside of L.A. In 2004 TZone became a national public foundation. We look for community-based organizations that encourage girls to be leaders, not followers. It gives me pleasure to help other people’s dreams come true.”

WHAT YOU CAN DO: To donate, visit tzonefoundation.org.

Don Cheadle

HIS PASSION: COLLEGE SUMMIT
“A friend in the admissions office at Yale created this program where high school counselors identify students who have potential but risk falling through the cracks. For many of those who come from broken homes or are being seduced by gangs, a college education would be hopeless if not for this program. College Summit teaches them how to write their admissions essays during an intensive camp. I’ve been a writing coach there for two years. On the final night of camp, the kids often stay up all night reading each other’s essays. And that is what you see: It becomes viral, and they start to take ownership and pride. Very few people in the past have pointed to them and said, ‘Wow, you are an exceptional person.'”

Shining Stars 2008, Don Cheadle

Alex Cayley

WHAT YOU CAN DO: A donation of $50 sponsors a student for one month, and College Summit matches all donations through December 31. To learn more, visit collegesummit.org.

Jenny McCarthy

HER PASSION: GENERATION RESCUE
“When my son, Evan, was diagnosed with autism in 2005, I found Generation Rescue, where parents teach other parents about effective biomedical treatments—diet, vitamins, detox, cleansing. Evan is now 6, and I consider him recovered. When he improved, I started writing (Louder Than Words and Mother Warriors) to show the world how I did it, my way of paying it forward. Every day the organization is out there raising awareness, teaching parents, and building an online resource for pediatricians who are looking for alternative treatments for autism. Sometimes I’m on the phone all day, coaching a new mom or figuring out a campaign. It is just what I’m supposed to do.”
Shining Stars 2008, Jenny McCarthy

Alex Cayley

WHAT YOU CAN DO: Become a Rescue Angel and volunteer to help parents of autistic children, or make a donation at generationrescue.org.
