They may not occupy the corner office now, but chances are good that someday they will. Meet the heirs apparent to some of the world's biggest and most important companies.

Company: LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton
Current CEO: Bernard Arnault

Unlike some heiresses, Delphine Arnault, the hyper-elegant daughter of Bernard Arnault, has more than style. (Though she also has a lot of that too.) Arnault, a London School of Economics graduate, is deputy managing director at elite clothier Dior. After a stint at McKinsey, she was also appointed to the board of directors at LVMH at age 28, where she was the only woman. Those high-powered positions have primed speculation that she could eventually inherit the reins to her father's multinational luxury empire.
