Coming in second place, owners of the famed chocolate brand Mars are at a current total of $127 billion USD.
Chanel and Hermès take the fifth and sixth spots on the list, who are worth $57.6 billion USD and $53.1 billion USD respectively. The French fashion house owned by siblings Alain and Gerard Wertheimer "introduced the ‘little black dress’ to the world and had revenue of $11 billion USD in 2018." Hermès, now run by artistic director Pierre-Alexis Dumas and company chairman Axel Dumas, has recently reported that the company exceeded sales expectations following a rush of demand in Asia. Skincare brand Estée Lauder takes spot number 23 with a net worth of $32.3 billion USD which now sells $14 billion USD of cosmetics and fragrances.
