And just when you thought you had too many shoes ...... look at how the pros do it !
"I have about 1,000 pairs of shoes. But lots are in storage," says the Grammy-winning singer. The glamour girl keeps her designer stilettos, wedges and boots uncluttered and artfully on display in her 12,000-square-foot Manhattan triplex. With the help of renowned N.Y.C. decorator Mario Buatta, Carey designed the gold-leaf and bleached-wood floor in the shoe closet. "Like Louis Vuitton luggage," she says, "it will only look better over time."
White Lucite, silver-framed doors conceal the actress's 44-square-foot closet with its double-hung racks and endless shelves of shoes and purses. The closet she created—"a sanctuary with sunlight," she says—is a sort of isthmus between bedroom and bath. "I never had a space like this," she says of the shoe shelves loosely arranged by heel (high or low) or toe (open or closed). "I used to have one tiny rack I shared with my ex, so I used to put my shoes all over the house. They were displayed like art."
The actress is the proud owner of a 2,700-square-foot duplex in N.Y.C., of which she designated 200-square-feet to her very own walk-in closet. The closet—from Anthony's Custom Closets in Long Island—is crammed with designer dresses, bags and over 75 pairs of shoes. "It's the size of some studio apartments!" says Sigler's best friend, Sloane Bari Schechter. "For years I have not been able to find anything in my closet," says Sigler. "Now I see all my clothes, shoes and accessories, even some stuff I completely forgot I had ... with the tags still on them!"
Not long after buying her new place—a Mediterranean-style house in the Hollywood Hills—Longoria hired Robert Verdi, an N.Y.C. interior designer and fashion stylist, to decorate it down to the studs. This included a home for her many precious high heels. In the walk-in closet the Desperate Housewives star keeps her shoes organized on Ikea's Stolmen shelving system.
