Tamara Mellon-Brains and Beauty behind Jimmy Choo
Yesterday's post about the Jimmy Choo/Marilyn Minter collaboration got me thinking about the sexy spread of Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon's apartment in the August 2010 issue of Harper's Bazaar. I was drooling over her posh digs-and I still am! Tamara is a powerful business woman, doting mother, and on top of it all, quite a sex symbol. Her recent nude photos shot by world renowned photographer Terry Richardson underline that title of sex symbol...meow! Here are some shots of the Jimmy Choo powerhouse:
Love this shot! Tamara is sprawled out on her perfectly tufted sofa with a backdrop of...count them...SIX Guido Mocafico Serpens photographs chowing down on what appears to be a happy meal.
Mellon are her daughter lounge in their swanky entry-way that is lit with a neon sign by artist Terence Koh. A girl after my own heart, I was in the midst of designing a neon sign for my Guest Bedroom when I saw this!
Mellon has your average, run-of-the-mill home office...NOT! This Jansen desk is just as glamorous as Mellon herself. I wonder what kind of sumptuous shoes she dreams up sitting here.
I love the citrus palette along with the dark chocolately hues found in Mellon's Living Room. It's the right combination of bright, cheery, yet sophisticated.
Cozy and chic. Enough said.
A shoe closet fit for...well, I guess fit for the owner of Jimmy Choo!
Make sure the kids aren't around! Here's the vixen posing sans clothes on her very own sofa for photographer Terry Richardson (note-this was not part of the Harper's Bazaar spread.) The happy meal has been replaced very appropriately by an ash tray and that kitten...well...meow.
