In celebration of yesterday’s Mother’s day, we take you through Forbes’ recently released list of the world’s wealthiest women with Liliane Bettencourt of France claiming the No. 1 spot yet again.

According to Forbes, Bettencourt has a net worth of $39.5 billion making her the richest woman in the world. Nearly all her wealth comes from owing a third of the cosmetic company L’Oreal, which her father founded in 1907.
