Have you ever heard of Erica Pelosini?! No, us neither. Not until The Coveteur did a feature on her this week where they photographed her undeniably enviable wardrobe, including this incredible shoe collection. Seeing this, we decided to find out more. Surely she's a somebody if she owns all these shoes.

Erica Pelosini is a Florentine native. She describes herself as an artist, a shopaholic and says some people call her a stylist, a designer, and an art director, but says she 'does not give much value to those labels because [she] finds them limiting'. Her day jobs however, involve working on editorials for Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar and designing a men’s shoe line.

In her recent interview with The Coveteur, Erica said, "I love shoes and I’ve been building a collection for years! I remember when I was 15 I started my collection with Rene Caovilla. I had them in every color and they looked like princess shoes! I think it is fair to say that being obsessed with shoes is 'vizio di famiglia,' as my grandmother used to have an apartment only for her shoes."

She also says her guilty pleasure is "collecting Balmain pieces"... while most of us collect shoes and jewellery from Penneys and H&M! Long may we be lucky enough to do it, but if Erica ever happens to be finished with any of her Balmain goods, we'd gladly take them off her hands I'm sure!

Kim K was spotted out in a gorgeous Balmain dress in Paris this week and an artist fan of hers sketched the reality star wearing the dress. Have you seen it? Do you think it's a compliment or an insult to the reality star? Have a look here
