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!
