* Katherine Wellington from ''HarpersIsland''. She even admits it.
* Jane Siegel Sterling on ''MadMen''. Roger Sterling throws over his wife of many years, Mona, for his sexy secretary. He soon tires of her, although she seems sincerely devoted to him. Don Draper marries his sexy secretary at the end of Season 4, although this is a less perfect example, as Don is about 15 years older than his wife as opposed to about 30 years between Roger and Jane, and Don's wife becomes his work colleague as well.

MRSDegree. Or, she may have started out as TheMistress, and then at some point, her husband divorced his first wife to start a new life with ''her''.

* The plot of ''TheStepfordWives'' sees the women (and [[TheOneGuy a gay dude's partner]], in the remake) transformed from "Supergirls" to a more stereotypical trophy wife. At least this appears to be a large part of the husband's motivation. [[spoiler: In the original, he succeeds. In the remake, he relents.]]

* ''TheFirstWivesClub'' is about women who get dumped, often to be replaced by trophy wives. Phoebe, the self-absorbed starlet, and Shelly, the empty-headed gold-digger, are the two most prominent trophy second wives, who help inspire the women they've replaced to create the club.

* "I Won", a song by rapper Future (featuring KanyeWest) from the former's album ''Honest'' which ''outright describes their partners'' - R'n'B singer Ciara and KimKardashian respectively - as trophy wives. Indeed, "Trophy Wife" was the song's working title.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' story, ''[[Fanfic/LegacyTotalDrama Legacy]]'', Duncan jokingly suggests that Heather's current job description is "trophy wife" because she's a beautiful woman who does not work outside the house, and because her husband is a successful businessman nearly ten years older than she. Heather allows that Duncan's assessment is not unreasonable, although her age difference to her husband is less than is typical for trophy wives.
