Years after Alexander McQueen’s Armadillo boots made their catwalk debut and their original designer passed away,multi award winning singer Lady Gaga now owns them courtesy her fiance, taylor Kinney.
The British design house recently put three pairs of the claw heels up for auction from July 14 to 23 at Christie’s New York. Hosted online, profits from the bidding are being donated to UNICEF’s relief efforts in Nepal following the recent earthquake. Collectively, the shoes fetched $295,000, far exceeding expectations of an estimated $10,000 to $15,000 each.
Christie’s and Alexander McQueen both announced the successful conclusion of the sale on their Instagrams, but neither revealed the purchaser at the time. Now you know. Are they worth that amount?
