Lady Gaga bought Alexander McQueen 'Armadillo' shoes for £190,000.

The 29-year-old singer has taken to Instagram to reveal she was the winning bidder for three pairs of the iconic boots, auctioned at Christie's in aid of UNICEF, and called them a gift "from heaven".

Along with a photo of Gaga sat down trying on her new shoes  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' star 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 revealed she sees her new shoes as a "sign of love from beyond".

Along with a picture 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 'Alejandro' hitmaker also revealed she wanted the shoes as a "memory" of the friendship she had with the fashion designer.

Speaking to V Magazine, Gaga said: "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."

"These shoes are the only tangible piece I have left of our work together."
