Lady Gaga shoe to be auctioned

A single shoe thrown into the crowd by Lady Gaga at a Parisian concert will be auctioned off to the highest bidder next year.

The silver Emporio Armani platform - which is typical of Gaga's eccentric style - will go on sale alongside a range of vintage menswear and other pieces at Paris' auction house Drouot Richelieu on February 11.

The skyscraper heel was thrown into the audience at a 2010 show in the French capital, and will surely be hot property at the event.

According to WWD, Gaga's shoe is valued at between 4,000 euros and 5,000 euros, although typically such pieces sell for much more at auction.

The international songstress' footwear is part of auction firm Cornette de Saint Cyr's fifth L'Homme et son Univers sale.

Other pieces going under the hammer include a black felt fedora made for Michael Jackson in 1984 and a writing set owned by the late screen icon Marilyn Monroe.

Gaga herself bagged some of Michael Jackson's most iconic clothing at an auction earlier this week.

The superstar singer won the pieces - including Michael's famous Bad jacket and a pair of his white spangled gloves - at Julien's Auctions held in Beverly Hills.
