Emma Watson, currently promoting her new film The Bling Ring, has made a surprising confession about the size of her footwear collection. While on the topic of extravagant celebrity wardrobes, the actress said in an interview with the Radio Times, “It’s almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania,” said Watson. “I’ve got about eight pairs of shoes and that’s it. But it’s easy for me to sound like a total hypocrite because, of course, I’m dressed in designer clothes right now.”
Only eight pairs? Well, we suppose that with a pair of to-die-for Tom Ford wedges (pictured above) in her shoe rotation, a girl really doesn’t need much more. Or does she? A recent study found that the average woman owns about 19 pairs of shoes, but only wears 7 of them. The fact that an A-lister like Emma comes in with a below-average sized shoe collection is rather unexpected.
Which begs the question, how many pairs of shoes do you own? We’re definitely not in the business of shoe-shaming around here, so spill in the comments. We’ll start: one of us Backseat Stylers is significantly over the average, while the other is in Emma Watson territory. Your turn!
