She rubs elbows with the likes of Anna Wintour, Karlie Kloss, and Victoria Beckham on the regular, but chances are you've never even heard of this millionaire millennial.
Meet Wendy Yu, the 28-year-old fashion mogul and CEO of Yu Holdings, who has been dubbed one of the most powerful women on the global style scene. With shares in labels like Mary Katrantzou and Cefinn (founded by former First Lady of Britain, Samantha Cameron), as well as numerous tech giants in Asia, the Chinese-born, British-bred tycoon has built an investment empire worth about $20 million.
Of course, she's had some help. Her father, Jingyuan Yu, is a billionaire businessman himself, although Wendy maintains, "Everybody born in those circumstances could be spoiled and waste their privilege but I am looking to make a more positive social impact and do more meaningful things."
Nevertheless, she's not shy about displaying her jet-set life or celebrity friends on the 'gram. From exotic vacations and throwbacks to International Debutante Balls, to events alongside Naomi Campbell, Nicky Hilton, and DVF, Miss Yu's social media presence subtly perfects the art of showing off. Seriously, girl's never met an A-lister she didn't want a selfie with.
