Tamara Ecclestone to auction her designer dresses for charity

April 1, 2012 - London

Tamara Ecclestone, who is sick of the "untrue and unkind" comments made about her all the time, has hit back at critics who label her a spoilt brat by giving her designer gear to charity.

The heiress invited the Daily Star Sunday to her Chelsea mews home to see the frocks, handbags and shoes she is auctioning for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The 27-year-old's walk-in wardrobe was such that it could easily make Carrie Bradshaw throw down her Jimmy Choos in despair.

The Aladdin's cave consisted candy-coloured YSL clutches, racks of Louboutin heels, some of which were still in boxes, and rails of faux fur coats and sequinned dresses.

There are 22 pairs of Ugg boots, tens of Juicy Couture tracksuit tops and T-shirts and a whole section dedicated to little black dresses.

F1 mogul Bernie Ecclestone's elder daughter's collection of 17 Hermes Birkin bags, worth around 500,000 pounds, is in a display cabinet in the hallway.

"I won't sell these," the Daily Star quoted her as saying.

"They're going to my babies," she said.

Tamara's next wardrobe, at the 45-million-dollar home she is renovating with boyfriend Omar Khyami, will be even bigger, with shoes on conveyor racks and Hermes-leather lined drawers.
