  • Sarah Jessica Parker: Dolce Vita may not be a brand we'd typically associate with Sarah Jessica Parker, but the actress sported these simple black pumps when playing the now-iconic role of Carrie Bradshaw on HBO.

  • Sarah Jessica Parker: In addition to her practical Dolce Vita's, SJP donated a pair of silvery cage heels by Jonathan Kelsey. With their twinkly finish, we think these Sex and the City sandals are quintessentially "Carrie." Plus, they come with a thank you note penned by Miss Bradshaw herself.

  • Britney Spears:
     Ah, 2000: a year that will live in infamy not only for its square-toed wedge sandals (see above) but for Birtney Spears' seminal pop album, "Crazy." The pop princess sported these very heels on stage during her subsequent tour, and now you can wear them all summer long. Minimum bid $1,000 at GottaHaveRocknRoll.com.

  • Steve Buscemi: Fellas keen on Americana accessories will swoon over these leather and suede lace-ups, which Steve Buscemi wore to play gangster Enoch Thompson on "Boardwalk Empire." Despite being made to look like a product of the 1930s, these dress boots still look slick. Minimum bid $100 at Gotta HaveRockandRoll.com

Posted in Shopping By

For most, high school benefits involve boozy faux-casino nights with prizes like IHOP gift certificates or two passes to Six Flags.
For that special breed of New York City kids, however, school benefits draw donations from A-listers like Sarah Jessica Parker, Eminem and Britney Spears—all of whom contributed pairs of shoes to be auctioned off in support of LaGuardia High School on April 24th.
Bank accounts (and appropriate shoe sizes) permitting, you’ll be able to slip into a pair of Carrie Bradshaw’s silvery stilettos, Eminem’s white Air Jordans, or even Elvis’ brown leather boots, which the King sported to his first live performance after taking an eight year hiatus from the music biz.
Here, a preview of the ten coolest celeb kicks heading to the LaGuardia High auction later this month. Happy bidding.
