Marie Antoinette’s Shoes Auction for $65,000


Last week a Paris auction house sold over 300 objects belonging to several French Royal families.

The most sought after items were those of Marie Antoinette. Though never actually uttering “Let them eat cake“, Madame Deficit was one of the original Queens of Excess. Beheaded in 1793, she was the subject of a sympathetic biography by Antoinette Fraser that was the basis for Sofia Coppola’s 2006 film.

Christian Louboutin’s visionary homage to Marie Antoinette

From Christian Louboutin shoes that feature her image (a favorite of Kobe Bryant’s wife) to Hollywood movies that depict the many scandals during her husband’s reign (The Necklace) Marie Antoinette remains a very high profile figure.

A pair of pink and green silk shoes given to a manservant, were passed down through the family tree and originally estimated to sell for $10,000. An anonymous phone bidder bought the slippers for a whopping $65,000.

But don’t despair. Despite her violent end, Marie Antoinette’s very extensive wardrobe was untouched by the mob that took her from Versaille.

So dust off the old check book and I’ll let you know when the next auction is taking place!

We Need To Talk About Miley Cyrus – What the GOTdamnhell Is She Wearing?

Leather Diapers Are All the Rage


So, that up there?  It looks like a leather diaper with a D-ring closure, right?  And the “shirt” that almost shows her “ninny“?  (That’s baby-talk for nipple in this house, FYI.) Let’s just say I’m puzzled by this particular look.

Here’s my deal, I don’t hate Miley’s hair at all.  In fact, if it weren’t so P!nk-ish, I’d actually love this look on her.  (I know.  I can’t believe I just said that either. I think I’m delirious, so let me be the first to announce my condition.)


Miley at this week’s VMA red carpet


To prove even further that I’ve lost my mind (for good), I think Miley looked pretty tremendous last night at the VMAs  in her sheer, black Pucci gown and Christian Louboutin $995  Lady Indiana pumps.  (First my Team KStew post yesterday, now this? Clearly, it’s election season since I’ve perfected the art of Romney-ing  flip-flopping!)

Have you noticed how the yoga classes have helped Miley with her gawd-awful posture? It’s Angelina Jolie ram-rod straight now!
