Ever wanted to raid Carrie Bradshaw’s epic shoe collection or strut around in Madonna’s boots? Well now you can – for a price!
Sarah Jessica Parker is donating three pairs of Sex & the City character Carrie Bradshaw’s shoes for a charity auction (NYC’s LaGuardia High School for Music, Art and Performing Arts, to be precise). Madonna’s boots and Britney’s really-well-loved wedges are also up for grabs to the highest bidder – natch.
SJP has donated Prada peep-tole mules with studs, Jonathan Kelsey silver sandals and killer courts by Dolce Vita. They all come with a mini message from SJP too, including: “Enjoy and be careful,” which should probably come with every pair of strappy heels.
Apparently SJP kept close to three quarters of her alter ego’s wardrobe (being the star and exec producer of SATC has its perks) and we can only dream about the rest of her shoe collection, no doubt containing at least one pair of Carrie’s beloved Manolos.
Madonna has also donated a pair of daring leopard print though high boots by Miu Miu that she wore for her super bowl performance last year. Elle Macpherson has gifted an even more risqué pair of Manolo Blahnik boots that she wore to strut down a catwalk, while there are some more practical brown boots worn by Elvis that he wore in 1969 for his comeback live performance at the International Hotel in Las Vegas.
But none are less practical that Britney Spears’ REALLY well-worn wedges from her ‘Crazy’ tour.More intriguing than the battered shoes are the notes that accompany them, written on ripped pieces of paper and reading ‘Don’t let me be the last to know’…clearly about shoe maintenance.
