Most of us have pretty unimpressive closets: It’s not because we’re necessarily disorganized, it’s because we usually lack the space for an epic, massive closet — and lack the extensive wardrobe to show off inside.
Celebrities, though…well, they’re a little bit different. Many of them have dozens of designer dresses, hundreds of pairs of shoes, and enough accessories to start their own little department store. As such, they need the closets to match. You can see a collection of these insane celebrity closets below. Christina Aguilera’s is absolutely mind-blowing.
01. Ellen DeGeneres and her partner Portia de Rossi share a closet in their Beverly Hills home. As you can see, they have decidedly different tastes in footwear.
02. Elton John has been amassing a huge sunglasses collection since the mid seventies, so he clearly needs a closet to display them all at his English estate.
