Hilary Duff has given one lucky fan the chance to walk in her shoes after selling off a pair of designer heels to raise money for a New York theatre.

The star donated a pair of autographed tan Jean-Michel Cazabat wedge heels to bosses at the Lancaster Opera House in the Big Apple to raise funds for the venue's upcoming shows.

Before the sale went live on online auction eBay.com, she tweeted fans and wrote, "promise they're not too smelly."

The fact the heels were worn did not put one bidder off - the mystery buyer paid $950 (£593) for the shoes.
