Lady Gaga’s heel and MJ’s hat to go under hammer in Paris
New York: A silver platform shoe thrown to the audience by Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson’s custom-made felt hat are among the celebrity memorabilia up for grabs at an auction in Paris on February 11.
The Armani heel, thrown by Gaga in Paris during her second worldwide ‘Monster Ball’ concert tour in 2009, is expected to fetch up to 12,000 dollars, the New York Post reported.
She threw the pair of heels and then steadfastly stood on her heels for minutes at the end of the concert. But the auction only features the right shoe.
The Jackson fedora had been crafted by Los Angeles firm Maddest Hatter which made only a number of limited hats for the King of Pop. He gave it to US singer Jonathan Davis at a 1984 concert in Buffalo.
The Drouot auction house will also be auctioning a leather ecritoire, or writing case, used by Marilyn Monroe and a pocket knife owned by France’s last monarch and first president Napoleon III.
