Millionaire fashionista and Texas beauty queen Theresa Roehmer says a burglar has stolen more than $1 million in merchandise from her home.

Surveillance video showed the burglar entering her home near Houston through a bathroom window and making off with luxury items including diamond jewelry, Rolex watches, fur and Birkin bags.

Roehmer says she uses the room and her collection for charity functions and that many of the items stolen were passed down to her.

Police say the thief was a professional who was covered head to toe in a jumpsuit, wore gloves and used a glass cutter.

Roehmer was recently seen on Good Morning America showing off her famed closet.
