I took this picture of Lady Gaga
arriving at the Ritz Carlton in Hong Kong. I had a pair
of shoes I was going to ask her to sign but instead I
took a picture. One of my main goals is to start a
collection of autographed celebrity shoes for my museum.
I would love it if Lady Gaga would be the first to
donate a pair of her autographed shoes for my collection
as she is beautiful, talented and so unique especially
in the outfits and shoes/boots she wears -- they are
awesome. Did you know she even had a stiletto piano when
on Oprah? Also at the top of my list are: Ellen, Shania
Twain, Carrie Underwood, Danielle Steele, Sara Jessica
Parker, Venus and Serena Williams, Stuart Weitzman,
Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and the ladies and their
significant others from "The Talk" - I love that show!
