When it comes to fashion, celebrities are truly in a league of their own. Being a movie star or supermodel certainly makes it easier to get the latest designer threads — and lots of them. But while most entertainment columns are quick to point out what everyone is wearing, it’s far more rare to get a glimpse into celebrity closets. Some of these wardrobes are the size of an apartment, and here’s an opportunity to ogle everything that’s inside.
1. Kim Kardashian
As arguably the biggest female celebrity of the past decade, Kim Kardashian needs an outfit for every occasion — whether it’s an awards ceremony, party, concert, or just to go on vacation. Reportedly, her closet (or really, we should say ‘closets’ because there are more than a few) is worth an astounding $10 million.
This shouldn’t exactly come as a surprise, considering that whenever Kim steps out of her house, she has a slew of paparazzi waiting to take her picture. When your whole life is a continuous photoshoot, you need to make sure that your clothes are always on point. Naturally, it also helps when your stay-at-home clothes are the newest lines from Yeezy.
2. Jennifer Aniston
While Kim Kardashian may have one of the most expensive wardrobe collections on this list, Jennifer Aniston takes the crown for having one of the largest closets in terms of square feet. In 2012, city building permits revealed that she was converting her 2,000-square-foot garage into a closet/powder room, in a project that cost upwards of $60,000.
The downside to having a wardrobe that’s bigger than some people’s family homes: it takes more time to keep it organized! In a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Aniston told viewers that she had been spending a lot of time during quarantine cleaning out the space, which boasts multiple rooms, vanities, and a long walkway.
3. Oprah Winfrey
Back in 2016, Oprah decided to move her production entirely to Los Angeles, which meant leaving her longtime home base of Chicago. With the move came the unenviable task of cleaning out her closet, which had accumulated its fair share of outfits from her several decades-long career as America’s favorite talk show host.
A televised sneak peek offered fans a true look into Oprah’s signature styles. She’s a huge fan of designer Donna Karan, white button-downs, sweaters, and slippers! Although her collection of designer heels is worth a fortune and enviable by anyone with a fashion sense, she admits that as soon as the cameras stop rolling, the heels come off and the slippers go on.
4. Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi
Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi was first cast on MTV’s Is She Really Going Out With Him?, where she earned the eye of the casting director for Jersey Shore. The show ran successfully for three years, largely because of Snooki’s wildly entertaining antics, which at times accorded her a certain level of public scorn from fans and the American public alike.
While Snooki’s partying habits are common knowledge, it is lesser known that at the height of Jersey Shore’s success, she was earning $150,000 per episode. Now married with three children, Snooki has settled down in New Jersey and put the partying behind her. A recent peak into her closet revealed a massive space, with an amazing black and white tile floor.
5. Heather Dubrow
Heather Dubrow appeared on the CBS drama That’s Life before becoming a household name, starring as herself on The Real Housewives of Orange County. She and her husband Terry, who is a famous plastic surgeon and reality TV star in his own right, share a 22,000-square-foot mansion that they have affectionately dubbed “Chateau Dubrow”.
Heather, who largely designed the interior of the house herself without the help of a designer, went all out when it came to building her own closet. The huge rectangular space is outlined with glass pane wardrobes that house all of Dubrow’s dresses. In the middle is a black marble island, containing mostly jewelry. The room even has its own champagne button that rings the kitchen for service if you’re having a celebratory fitting session.
6. Kris Jenner
Admittedly, matriarch Kris Jenner’s wardrobe is the result of over sixty years of collecting. That’s something she hastened viewers to keep in mind when she gave a tour of her closet a little over one year ago. This celebrity closet, which looks like a regular-sized apartment, needs to have enough clothing options to satisfy Jenner’s daily filming routine.
In a rare glimpse, she showed off one of her most prized possessions, a crystal encrusted clutch given to her by former husband, Robert Kardashian; something that she’s held onto since 1980. Another amazing item was a rare black clutch that she carried at the Met Gala in 1990. If there’s one takeaway that we can impart from this woman (who’s no stranger to giving sound advice), it’s to buy for quality and keep your things in great shape.
7. Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner built a custom room in her house for her massive collection of bags. The mirrored room has rows of purses organized by designer. Kylie’s favorite section is Hermès row, a brand that she has been collecting for several years, partially because she likes the bags but also as an investment. So of all her plethora of bags, which would Kylie save if her house were on fire?
Her favorite is her Hermès Kelly Himalayan, which is made from Nile crocodile and colored to look like the Himalayan mountains. The price tag on such an item comes at a cool $160,000. Besides Hermès, the youngest Jenner has a huge collection of Louis Vuitton collabs, including one that is spray-painted “Girls Just Wanna Have Funds”, a Christmas gift she received from her mom.
8. Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson has had extraordinary success in her transition into a full-blown entrepreneur. Her huge fashion brand that bears her namesake was just valued at $2 billion! It might come as no surprise that this mega-star has a killer house and an especially grand closet to boot. In fact, this particular celebrity closet may look familiar if you watched the reality TV show The Osbournes.
Simpson purchased the home from heavy metal legend Ozzy Osbourne back in 2013 for $11.5 million. It features wrap-around views of Los Angeles, a recording studio, and, yes: a massive closet. The petite Simpson has a massive collection of heels and boots, all arranged by style and color. The collection, easily in the hundreds, will undoubtedly grow as Simpson’s brand expands into new lines of accessories and fragrances.
9. Elton John
Elton John’s wardrobe is unarguably one of the most famous in the world. From his outlandish and extravagant custom pieces donned during performances, to his eclectic taste in everyday pieces, it’s certainly one of the most unique celebrity closets out there. Sir Elton John made history back in 2006 when he auctioned off 10,000 pieces for charity and gave fans a view of his closet.
One room in particular is nothing but silk Versace shirts. He has every one that the Italian designer has ever made, twice over! Other standouts are his Richard James pattern-on-pattern suits, and an immaculately designed room several stories tall. So what does he keep in all that space? Why, all of his sunglasses, of course!
10. Kanye West
The Kardashian-West house features his and hers closets to match. However, Mr. West’s closet stands out for something that you may have never guessed: minimalism. In fact, this design element was kept in mind when designing the entire house (save for Kim’s closet, perhaps), which extends into the rapper-producer’s wardrobe.
Once inside, it feels more like an art gallery than a closet, with each item having enough space to be appreciated. So what stands out the most? West’s complete collection of Yeezy sneakers, which of course comes complete with even the rarest models. Hey, it helps when you’re the inventor and creative head of the brand, which is now valued at $2 billion.
11. Paris Hilton
As to be expected, Paris Hilton has multiple closets. The one that stands out the most for its extravagance is her mirrored, 1920s-inspired dressing room, which features black and white walls and crystal chandeliers. It’s the space where the former reality TV star-turned fashion mogul does all of her final touches.
Hilton’s brand, which includes virtually any item you can think of, lines the walls of her space and she wears them proudly. She even claims to have had one line of skin care engineered by Nobel Prize-winning scientists. Aside from the endless supply of cosmetics, it might come as a surprise to learn that the star keeps an array of toys around her to keep her in good spirits. She’s into anything to do with Tinker Bell, Barbie, and unicorns.
12. Chelsea Handler
A 5,500-square-foot Bel Air hideaway wasn’t Chelsea Handler’s first choice when she was house hunting, so she’s put extra effort into modifying it to be more…Chelsea. Like her personality, the comedian’s closet is quirky and fun. As far as celebrity closets go, this one contains some wild items that you would never expect to find inside.
Some of her sillier clothes include sets of underwear for each day of the week, a gift from designer friend, Stella McCartney. She also has a pair of retro Air Jordan I’s that she says is one of her favorite pairs of sneakers. The most outlandish feature, however, would have to be a secret bar, complete with its own ice chest, that is hidden away in a discreet drawer.
13. Jennifer Lopez
In 2015, Jennifer Lopez showed off her closet, which contains several pieces of vintage JLo attire. Some classic items that she held onto include a pair of Prada shoes that she wore in one of her first movies, The Boy Next Door, and of course, her famous blue Versace dress from the VMAs.
The star has divided her closet into casual and formal wear. Her jeans collection alone is impeccably organized by color, and easily contains over one hundred pairs. One thing the singer/actress is a fan of would definitely be coats. Two of her favorite pieces are a brown wool, Breakfast Club-inspired piece that she bought in the ’80s, and a similar plaid Elizabeth and James coat from the early ’90s.
14. Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner purchased her $8.55 million house in the Mulholland Estates neighborhood in Los Angeles in 2017 from former owner Charlie Sheen. She joins the list along with sisters Kim and Kylie, and her mom Kris, as having one of the most enviable celebrity closets around.
Of course, it makes it easy to get your hands on some seriously rare pieces of clothing when you are one of the world’s biggest supermodels. Like her sisters, Kendall is a huge fan of Hermès. She also has an awesome pair of black and white striped Marc Jacobs jeans that she managed to swipe from one of her photoshoots.
15. Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey’s New York City penthouse ranks as one of the best episodes of MTV Cribs of all time. So it might come as a shock to learn that almost two decades later, she still owns the place. The star designed the interior of her apartment from scratch to suit her luxurious taste, and she has the perfect space for it. To provide some context, her living room window perfectly frames the Empire State Building.
The pop diva’s closet is a room unto itself, with an open arrangement view that separates her different wardrobes. Additionally, there is a space that houses her shoes and bags, one of them, a pink Hermès, a gift from boxer Floyd Mayweather. But Carey’s most prized possession isn’t in her closet; it’s in her living room. She famously purchased a white piano that had been owned by none other than Marilyn Monroe.
16. Theresa Roemer
Reportedly, this former bodybuilder-turned fitness guru and oil tycoon has the biggest closet in the country. Inside of her Houston mega-mansion, located in the suburb of The Woodlands, is a massive space is a 3,000-square-foot wardrobe space. For reference, that’s 1,000 square feet larger than Jennifer Aniston’s closet.
The first floor of the three-story closet is just for bags. Roemer says her favorite is an all-black Birken. On the way upstairs, there is a display case that contains some of the entrepreneur’s most prized possessions, including several crystal-encrusted clutches. Then, the second and third levels both house clothes and shoes.
17. Blake Lively
After rising to fame on the CW’s Gossip Girl, followed by major roles in films like The Town and The Green Lantern, Blake Lively has become one of the most sought-after women in Hollywood. Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds share homes in both New York and Los Angeles, the latter of which Lively recently showed off on Instagram.
Known for always rocking a pair of Christian Louboutins, a photo of her closet indeed revealed heels from floor to ceiling — although the pic was intended to show off a piece featuring Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour as the patron saint of fashion. She also gave followers an interesting fashion tip for shoes that need just a bit more room. Lively recommends putting a plastic bag filled with water inside, and sticking the shoe in the freezer.
18. Cindy Crawford
One of the biggest perks of being one of the biggest supermodels in world history is getting to keep all of the clothes. Cindy Crawford’s awesome clothes collection includes what she has coined her own personal ‘archive’ of memorable moments from over the years. Among her favorites is a sexy black Versace dress and a pair of cut-up Levi’s that she wore in an iconic Pepsi commercial.
Aside from a collection of designer purses, Crawford’s style is rather laidback, which matches the beachy vibe of her Malibu estate. As a young model, Crawford would often be allowed access to designers’ stores and have her pick at what she wanted, always opting for the most classic pieces. Her most prized possession in the closet is her white John Galliano slip dress, which she wore at her wedding.
19. Lauren Conrad
Lauren Conrad first rose to fame after starring on the hit reality TV show Laguna Beach, which followed the lives of a group of friends in and around their Southern California hometown during their senior year of college. After graduation, Conrad went to fashion school in New York, and turned herself into a fashion and beauty powerhouse.
The entrepreneur has her own line of cosmetics and affordable clothing sold at massive retailer Kohl’s. In 2015, Conrad and husband William Tell purchased a 3,300-square-foot Beverly Hills penthouse featuring an incredible closet. The elegant space features wardrobes with glass panes, accented by a zebra print rug and vintage chair.
20. Mark Zuckerberg
The Zuckerbergs own ten properties in four locations: Palo Alto, San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, and the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The house where the family spends the most time, however, would be their 5,600-square-foot home in Palo Alto, which is conveniently located near Facebook’s offices.
This CEO’s closet has a particularly unique feature to it that becomes far more apparent when it’s compared with other celebrity closets. In true techy fashion, Zuckerberg recently posted a picture of his closet to his followers on Facebook. Even Zuck’s most diehard fans must have been a little bit shocked to see nothing but rows of blue jeans and gray t-shirts.
21. Rachel Zoe
After graduating from George Washington University with a degree in psychology, Rachel Zoe moved to New York to begin a career in fashion, something that she had literally zero experience in. She managed to work her way into styling virtually every A-lister in the entertainment business, and eventually bridged into designing her own clothes and accessories.
It perhaps comes as no surprise to find that Zoe’s closet is the object of most women’s dreams. She gave fans a brief glimpse inside, which featured an entire wall of shoes and some of her personal favorite pieces for the season. Included was a camel tote from designer Shiraleah and a gold-plated bracelet from sustainable designer, and personal friend, Lisa Freede.
22. Chris Brown
Chris Brown has come a long way from his humble beginnings in Tappahannock, Virginia. His $4.1 million mansion, located just outside of Los Angeles, is covered in graffiti. Outside, there’s an impressive fleet of cars that greets guests as they arrive.
Besides the street art that literally takes up entire walls on both the interior and exterior of the home, the artist’s impressive collection of clothes and shoes is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Housed in multiple rooms, the collection includes everything from signed Air Jordans, to Vans, to LA Gear. Recently, Brown opened his home to the public, giving away shoes and clothes in a massive garage sale.
23. Catherine Zeta-Jones
Catherine Zeta-Jones gave her Instagram followers a taste of her closet when she posted a virtual tour via her Instagram story. Calling the clip “a zip through my closet”, the Oscar winner set the tour to a background of a revving car engine, while the hyper-fast video weaved in and out of the expanses of her magnificent closet. If there’s one thing that we’ve learned about this star’s fashion sense, it’s that she is obsessed with black.
Black glossy cabinets and black walls line the space, making for an ultra-dramatic setting. The shelves are full of Chanel purses, and in one section there is a place dedicated entirely to her Hermès scarves. Hey, when you and your husband are two of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and you own an $11.5 million estate, you ought to have a closet to match!
