London: Singer Lady Gaga has bought three pairs of Alexander McQueen ‘Armadillo’ heels for 190,000 pounds as a “memory” of her friendship with the late designer.
Along with a photograph of the singer sitting down and trying on her new shoe — taken by her fiance Taylor Kinney — she shared: “When a gift comes to you from heaven photo by Taylor Kinney best fiancée ever.”
The “Poker face” hitmaker has made no secret of how much of a fan she is of McQueen, who tragically died in 2010, having also worn the ‘Armadillo’ heels in her “Bad Romance” music video, and later said that she sees her new shoes as a “sign of love from beyond”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Along with an image of Gaga wearing a nude bodysuit, clutching her ‘Armadillo’ shoes, she wrote: “Long Live McQueen. Look monsters, we got a sign of love from the beyond.”
The songstress also said she wanted the shoes as a “memory” of the friendship she had with the fashion designer.
“There is no diamond, no award, nothing I ever wanted more than a memory of my brief friendship with McQueen. I am sad every day that I enter my closet, knowing he is not here anymore to dazzle the world with his beautiful, dark, limitless, brave mind,” she added.
