Playmate, designer, and third Mrs. Hugh Hefner, Crystal Hefner, invites 'Life & Style' into her favorite room in the mansion — her closet overlooking the front yard of the Playboy Mansion.
“It’s my own watchtower, where I can spy on people during parties. I feel like queen of the castle up here!” Crystal shares with the mag.
“The Playboy Mansion was built in 1927 and part of my closet was an old elevator shaft — you’d never know what it used to be!” Hugh's wife, 28, tells 'Life & Style.' “It has built-in storage with shelves, a center island, vanity and desk and everything is accessible. It fits my personality!”
Fittingly, the room is packed with regal goodies, including vintage dresses, 50 pairs of shoes (mostly flats and sneakers because she “hasn’t mastered heels”), a $2,000 Swarovski crystal-encrusted bra and, of course, countless jewels — including a $74,000 pair of Cartier diamond stud earrings (1.6 carats each) Hugh, 88, gave her before the shoot because she’d lost an older pair.
“They’re bigger than the others,” she gushes.
Check out the photo shoot inside Crystal’s closet, in the new issue of 'Life & Style,' on newsstands now.
