Tamara Ecclestone, the latest heiress trying make it in Hollywood, recently revealed the contents of her walk-in wardrobe to Britain’s Closer Magazine.
The 27-year-old socialite and TV personality’s personal shoe collection includes “100 pairs of Christian Louboutin heels, 15 pairs of Ugg boots, 20 pairs of sneakers and a handful of Ginas and Jimmy Choos.”
The value of her shoe closet? Estimates put it to be well over $100,000.
Of course, many websites are lambasting this ostentatious display of wealth but here on the Your Next Shoes blog, where we’ve featured plenty of other shoe closets, we know that Tamara Ecclestone’s is actually and suprisingly small in comparison to other celebrity collections.

Now before you get in a huff over the “only 100 Louboutins” in this post’s title, let’s first take a look into who Tamara Ecclestone really is. She is the daughter and heiress of Britain’s fourth richest person, billionaire Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone. In numbers, an estimated over $4 billion dollars is what Tamara and her younger sister Petra stand to inherit.
So relatively, Tamara’s $100,000 shoe collection is “small” especially when you consider that 5-year-old Suri Cruise has a $150,000 shoe collection — obviously worth more than hers. Tamara’s closet also pales in comparison to poker player Beth Shak‘s shoe closet with over 700 Louboutins and to Khloe Kardashian’s shoe collection which is practically in flames due to all those Pantone-18 Chinese Red soles.

We’re not saying that Tamara Ecclestone’s closet is modest. Definitely not at all by any means. She’s also clearly well-aware of the fortune she holds — just that she chooses to splurge more on other things.
Tamara reportedly just spent an astounding $1.6 million on a crystal bathtub for her London home, an amount which includes dispatching five minions on an expedition to the Amazon to gather the crystal, travel expenses, floor reinforcements and hauling and polishing the crystal.
That and she also likes to keep one million pounds in cash “just lying around” in her house. That’s for in case it’s needed as a prop for a photoshoot, such as the one she recently modeled for taken by controversial photographer Tyler Shields.
