An Armani shoe that Lady Gaga threw into the crowd at one of her shows is set to appear as part of a Paris auction on February 11.
The right-footed silver Emporio Armani heel is expected to bring $6,500. It was launched into the hordes of her adoring "Little Monsters" at Paris' Palais Omnisports de Bercy during her 2010 Monster Ball Tour.
The star is fast emerging as one of the most collectible living celebrities, with a lipstick-marked teacup and saucer that she once used selling for $75,300 in May.
She is also becoming one of the greatest celebrity collectors, after purchasing 55 Michael Jackson items at auction on December 2, which she says will be "archived and expertly cared for in the spirit and love of Michael Jackson, his bravery and his fans worldwide."
The shoe has been consigned to auction by the lucky fan who caught it. Gaga has long been a fan of the Armani brand, wearing a range of the designer's elaborate costumes for the Born This Way tour earlier this year.
Also featuring in the auction will be a black felt fedora hat, which was made for Michael Jackson in 1984, the year he was famously burnt during a Pepsi commercial. Paul Fraser Collectibles is currently offering authentic strands of Michael Jackson's hair, which were collected following the incident by the commercial's executive producer.
