Meet The Stunning Former Air Hostess With The World’s Biggest Hermes Bag Collection
Her very first Hermès was a Blue Jean Birkin bag with white stitches, worth more than £17,000, but now former flight attendant Jamie Chua boasts more than 200.
Singapore resident and mother-of-two Jamie, 42, is a socialite and skincare entrepreneur who hit the headlines when she married Indonesian multi-millionaire Nurdian Cuaca after meeting him as he travelled in business class.
And since they married she’s set about amassing an impressive collection of bags worth millions. With prices starting at £8,000 for a Birkin, her collection is worth at least £1.6M and possibly much more, when rare pieces that can fetch up to £40,000 are taken into account.
During their divorce in 2011 Jamie demanded more than £187,000 a month in maintenance payments and while the eventual settlement remains undisclosed, it’s enough to pay for luxuries such as refurbishing the walk-in closet where her collection of Hermes and Chanel bags reside.
The former couple share two children Cleveland, 21, and Calista, 17, but Jamie could easily pass for her daughter’s slightly older sister despite being in her 40s.
She maintains her very youthful appearance by spending almost £8,000 on beauty treatments a month, including hair, nails, massages, facials and a cryosculpting treatment twice weekly to maintain her slim figure.
