Tamara Mellon is the founder of Jimmy Choo, along with the namesake man himself. She has over 800 pairs of shoes. Mind-boggling…and envy inducing. In fact, before she could move into her new penthouse duplex, she had to knock down walls and make room for the shoes, and only half of them reside onsite! I am in love with the ‘Private’ model, shown above. The next time I have $950 to spare, I know what I might buy…it will be a while, though.
Some of her personal drama has played out in the media, including a lawsuit between her and her mom, a divorce from a high-profile banker, and a dating life that has included Christian Slater and, allegedly, Kid Rock. However, she is an impressive, powerful woman who has created a shoe empire…and she has great taste – all things I admire.
