One survey says the answer is my favored candidate for mayor in the upcoming Paris race, Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet. Perhaps so. No matter the correct answer, the conservative 40 year old is aggressive and immensely successful, a good recipe for success in a tough mayoral race against a socialist.
The French politician has an estimated net worth of $275 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Kosciusko-Morizet Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Paris Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderkosciusko-Morizet – France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Nathalie) and a fashion line called “Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Nathalie fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
