Her very first Herms 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.
Just a girl who loves shopping in her own wardrobe.
‘Before this my wardrobe was really cluttered, there were shoes everywhere. I couldn’t collier cuff hermes replica
see all my bags at once.’
Her other favourite accessory is shoes, and has hundreds of designer pairs.

All that glitters: The socialite also has a fondness for diamond accessories
When Jamie finds a pair of shoes she likes, she doesn’t hesitate to snap up a pair in every colour
‘When the shoe fits, get it in every colour,’ she said. ‘I truly have a weakness like all women do.’
Jamie regularly shares glimpses into her enviable life and wardrobe with her 478,00 Instagram followers, and admits that she goes to great lengths to ensure she gets the perfect snaps.
Two full time maids travel everywhere with her and they’re tasked with taking photos of their employer for social media, over and over until she’s happy they’ve captured the perfect shot.
In recent months she’s jetted to Paris, the Maldives and Shanghai to promote her wares and makes sure to set a good example of her work ethic to her children.
Despite buying Chanel handbags for her daughter and a Range Rover and Givenchy shoes for her son, she insists they’re not spoiled.
‘Other than that, I don’t lavish them with gifts,’ she told The New Paper. ‘In fact, I always nag at them and tell them that they need to work hard to earn their own keep.’.
