Forget Carrie Bradshaw's Closet!

This is the motherload of them all. Model Tamara Ecclestone (and when I say model, I'm being generous here), daughter of billionaire Bernie Ecclestone was given a $45 million dollar house by her daddy- and her closet takes up an entire wing of the first floor! The Daily Mail had the exclusive tour...

Tamara Ecclestone Model and  TV presenter Tamara Ecclestone poses as she is introduced as the co-auctioneer for the opening night of the Red Room at Number Four Hamilton Place on September 29, 2009 in London, England.  On November 2nd 2009 Ecclestone will take part in a fundraising night in aid of The Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund.High-heeled: The improvements will include motorised rotating show racks

"Miss Ecclestone’s dressing room and private bathroom are spread over an entire wing at the back of the first floor. The centrepiece will be the £1 million stone bathtub, carved out of white crystal. The bath, which will require reinforced floors to support its two-ton weight, will be illuminated from underneath and semi-transparent.

The other half of the wing will be dedicated to the model’s exhaustive designer wardrobe. Miss Ecclestone, who once said that she had ‘lost count’ of the number of £5,000 Hermes Birkin handbags she owned, will have her clothes stored in six rows of wardrobe racks, dedicated to either ‘eveningwear’, ‘casual/gym wear’ or ‘everyday’.

Lingerie will be kept in a cabinet with silk-lined drawers, while shoes and handbags will be stowed away on ‘conveyer racks’ allowing Miss Ecclestone to summon the perfect accessory from her collection, which, at the last count, included £700,000 worth of shoes.

Other designer accessories will be showcased inside glass counters with drawers lined in exquisite leather from French couture designer Hermes.

The dressing room, which the heiress has already boasted will have ‘mirrors everywhere so I can see how fat my bum looks before I go out’ – includes a ‘three-way’ mirror, with a trio of panels ensuring she gets the all-round picture.

But if that’s not enough, the dressing room will also include a ‘vanity TV and camera’ behind another mirror. Using this, she can film her outfit, then transform the mirror to a screen on which to examine it from every angle before leaving the house." - Daily Mail

Seriously, a camera to film herself before leaving the house? As much as I mock it though, I'll be the first to admit I've left the house thinking I looked good in something that I later saw in pictures and really (REALLY) regretted. There is much more in the Daily Mail article about the house in general- I was just too obsessed with the closet to include anything else. To read the entire article, click here.
