One of a kind

Giuseppe Zanotti has created possibly the world's most precious shoes - a one-off, unique, pair of diamond encrusted, satin heels, to be worn at Cannes Film Festival today by Anja Rubik.

In a new collaboration with Chopard, the Italian-born designer's latest creation comprises rose gold chains, 22 carats of diamonds, 134 carats of rubellites and 199 carats of pink sapphires. Zanotti has also made a pair of matching rose gold, pink sapphire and diamond hoop earrings.

Both items will be auctioned at amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS gala tonight.
