Salma Hayek's stepdaughter, 22-year-old Mathilde "Tildie" Pinault, the eldest daughter of François-Henri Pinault, is certainly one lucky girl.

Not only does she have an award-winning actress as her stepmother, but she is the billionaire heiress of her dad's multi-billion dollar luxury goods company, Kering.

Mathilde, born in 2001 – Salma and her dad married in 2009 – is the luxury industry titan's first and only daughter with his ex-wife, Dorethée Lepère, who François was married to from 1996 until 2004. He also shares with his first wife 25-year-old François, as well as his daughter with Salma, Valentina, 15, and a son with model Linda Evangelista, Augustin, 16.

The French-native, though heiress to the Kering dynasty by blood – the luxury conglomerate owns Gucci, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Brioni, Boucheron, Pomellato, and more – seems to be putting in the work to follow in her father's, and grandfather's, footsteps.

According to her LinkedIn page, since 2020, Mathilde has been enrolled as a student in France's Emlyon Business School.

Her dad, François, is a billionaire heir himself, and though he is now the CEO of both Kering, since 2005, and investment holding company Artémis, since 2003, both were founded by his father, François Pinault, in 1963.

Mathile, François, and Salma attended the House of Gucci premiere, which told the story of the fashion house which Kering owns

François Sr., 86, has a net worth of $41.7 billion, while his son, 60, has a networth of $7 billion. Their company also has a billionaire net worth, a reported $76 billion as of March 2023.

Meanwhile, Salma, who has had a decades-long career in acting as well as several high-profile fashion partnerships through the years, has a net worth of $200 million.
