All three pairs of Alexander McQueen's recommissioned Armadillo shoes for the Nepal relief fund by Unicef have been bought for one of his most loyal fans—Lady Gaga.
The mother monster is a very lucky woman. First seen wearing McQueen's iconic shoe for her 2009 video, Bad Romance (for which she won a Grammy award for Best Music Video), Lady Gaga's fiance, actor and model Taylor Kinney, has bought all three pairs of the Armadillos at a Christie's auction for a whopping US$295,000 .
Only 21 pairs of the shoe from McQueen's S/S'10 show exist, most of which are currently on display at the Savage Beauty exhibit at the V&A museum, London. The three pairs Gaga is very lucky to have were specially remade in support of UNICEF's Nepal Relief fund and were sold by auction on christies.com from 14-23 July. Fashionable and philanthropic, you go Gaga!
