Tamara Mellon Net Worth $225 Million

Stiletto queen Tamara Mellon, co-founder of the Jimmy Choo shoe brand, advises: “Every girl should own a great open-toed platform shoe in a pale gold fabric, a elegant wedge for any on-grass occasion, along with a perfect level shoe in a neutral colour for every day.” Mellon, a former accessories editor at Vogue, set up the business with Hackney cobbler Jimmy Choo in 1996, with a 150,000 loan from her late dad, Tommy Yeardye, co-founder of the Vidal Sassoon hair products conglomerate. But she says: “When my dad died I inherited completely nothing. All I have is the cash I made.” Mellon, 43, kept her married name after divorcing New York banking and oil heir Matthew Mellon, with whom she’s a daughter, Araminta. It is also expanding into jewellery, fragrance, handbags and homewear. When Lion Capital sold its 180m position available in 2007, Mellon netted 25m. Past earnings and London property take Jimmy to 150m.
