Since 2011, the insanely popular website Coveteur.com has given us everyday folks a sneak peak inside the private lives, closets and personal taste of some of our most favorite celebrities. And now to further feed your inner voyeur, the lifestyle media company has created “The Coveteur: Private Spaces, Personal Style” (Abrams, $35) a coffee table book of the stars they’ve photographed over the years.
And there’s a healthy dose of folks from different walks life and different industries: Models, actors, athletes, designers, artist and tastemakers from shoe guru Christian Louboutin to legendary makeup artist Bobbi Brown to New York Knicks Amar’e Stoudemire.
Speaking of Stoudemire, his closet is filled with vintage Nikes, Lanvin and Givenchy pieces and a pretty dope collection of “glittery Rolexes.” Fancy.
Celebrity stylist and Creative Director June Ambrose is the epitome of cutting edge and class as her closet is packed with a "robust" collection of Louboutin and Yves St Laurent heels plus Hermes collier de chen cuffs and sunglasses for days.
French fashion designer and creative director of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing’s work closet was hilariously filled with embellished black boots, old Miami Vice DVDs and iPod docks.
Former model and jewelry designer Michelle Elie has an elecletic mix of vintage Balenciaga and Prada pieces along with an impressive attic closet saturated with everything Commes de Garcon. Tres chic!
“The Couveter” co-founder Stephanie Mark recently talked to Fashion Week Daily about how the photo process works.
“We show up at the person’s house and immediately start looking through all of their stuff. You get to know someone pretty quickly that way. Most of the time they’ll walk us through their closet and point out their favorite things. From there we look for themes, patterns, and stories that we can create into those signature Coveteur vignettes. When that’s happening, Jake [Rosenberg] takes portraits, and I’ll style looks. Then everything gets put back where we found it. It usually takes two to three hours.”
