Petra Ecclestone (born December 1988) is a British heiress, model, fashion designer and socialite, the younger daughter of Croatian former Armani model Slavica and English Formula One billionaire Bernie Ecclestone. She has an older sister, Tamara and an older paternal half-sister, Deborah. She speaks Croatian fluently and understands French and Italian.
Ecclestone was born in Westminster, London, and attended Trevor-Roberts School, then Francis Holland School, a girls' school, in London. She reportedly won a place at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, but never took up the offer.
She contracted viral meningitis at the age of 14, and told the media that it "changed her life forever." She said "I no longer take my health for granted. ... I’m now a health freak and a hypochondriac. I’m obsessed with cleanliness, I eat healthily and take my vitamins." She has since become an ambassador for the Meningitis Trust.
Fashion career 
At the age of 19, Eccelstone created the menswear label FORM, which was sold into retailers including Harrods from October 2008. In April 2009 it was announced that Ecclestone had signed a contract with the Croatian clothing manufacturer Siscia. After she reportedly grew "tired of the grind of having to oversee the range", Form collapsed into administration 14 months after start-up, before being liquidated.
Personal life 
Ecclestone dated entrepreneur James Stunt for four years before they married on 27 August 2011 at Odescalchi Castle near Rome, at an event attended by royals, socialites and celebrities. The wedding reportedly cost £12 million and the bride's Vera Wang dress £80,000. In February 2013, Petra gave birth to their daughter; Lavinia Stunt, in England.
In July 2011 Ecclestone purchased The Manor, in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, for $85 million, with $82.4 million borrowed from her mother. It had been on the market for two years with an asking price of $150 million, making it the most expensive residential real estate listing in the US. The 57,000-square-foot (5,300 m2) mansion was the former home of Aaron and Candy Spelling, and is the largest residence in Los Angeles County.
