Meet Flavio Briatore, Italian playboy
He's a racecar team manager worth nearly $50 million who owns a yacht, a mansion in Kenya and a Sardinian nightclub, but Flavio Briatore is best known for squiring supermodels. The 53-year-old Italian businessman currently dates Heidi Klum
, 23 years his junior. The attraction? "His charisma and his manner are what's important," Klum has said, "not appearance."
WITH NAOMI CAMPBELL
Their reportedly tempestuous two-year relationship ended in '01, but last year Briatore said of Campbell, "She is a very sweet and generous girl."

"I was lucky to meet her," Briatore said of Klum. A 2002 dinner party hosted by Roberto Cavalli first brought the pair together.
WITH ELLE MACPHERSON
The Formula 1 racing boss took good pal Macpherson to a 2001 charity gala in Barcelona.
OVER THE MOON
Briatore enjoys water sports and, apparently, striking the occasional pose himself.
