Les chaussures de Madonna aux enchères.
BY Laurel Pinson // 4 hours ago
Celebrity acting coach Susan Batson will be auctioning off a slew of incredible pieces her pupils have given her over the years, among them an autographed pair of red platforms that Madonna wore during her "Drowned World" tour in 2001.
According to WWD, Batson has worked with talents including Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Connelly, and Jamie Fox, and is holding the auction through December 12 at her Black Nexxus Inc. theater lab (300 West 43rd Street) to raise money for a scholarship fund for study at the theater. In addition to the Material Girl's epic sandals (which are signed "Love Madonna" on one shoe and "If the shoe fits wear it" on the other), the auction items include an original script from the first episode of "30 Rock," autographed by Tina Fey; a peacoat designed for Janet Jackson's "Velvet Rope" tour; and even pieces donated by Liv Tyler and Alicia Keys.
Be warned: Bidding starts at $15,000, and we'd predict the prize red platforms go for much more than that.

Those aspiring to own some celebrity items may want to line up their credit cards this week. Acting coach Susan Batson, who has worked with the likes of Nicole Kidman, Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Connelly, is auctioning items beginning tonight through Dec. 12 at her Black Nexxus Inc. theater lab in Manhattan. Among the pieces for sale is a peacoat created for Janet Jackson’s “Velvet Rope” tour, a Tina Fey-signed original script of the first episode of “30 Rock,” Juliette Binoche’s watercolor portrait of her character Susan in “The Flight of the Red Balloon” and a copy of “The Hours” book Kidman read to prepare for her Oscar-winning role and signed for the auction. The pièce de résistance could be a pair of towering red patent leather platform heels Madonna wore during her “Drowned World” tour in 2001 and signed “Love Madonna” on one shoe, and “If the shoe fits wear it” on the other. The bidding for these will start at $15,000. Liv Tyler and Alicia Keys also donated personal pieces to the sale, proceeds of which will go towards a scholarship fund to allow students to study at Black Nexxus.
