Hip-hop star 50 Cent has taken on a role set to shock many of his fans - he's personally designed a pair of women's stilettos.

The IN DA CLUB rapper has decorated an elaborate pair of STUART WEITZMAN shoes for the designer's fourth annual celebrity shoe auction, benefiting breast cancer research.

50 Cent, real name CURTIS JACKSON, used white and Pink crystals on grey pumps to create the logo of his G-Unit clothing line, along with a 50-cent piece affixed at the heel.

Alicia Keys, Cher, Ashlee Simpson, Hilary Duff, Celine Dion and Queen LATIFAH are also among the 20 celebrities who added their personal styles to the satin shoes.

PINK drew black skulls on her pump and added brilliant pink ribbons, while singer ANASTACIA - herself a breast cancer survivor - covered her shoe in orange patterned fabric and a gold chain.

The stilettos, along with an autographed photo, will be up for auction until 31 October (04) with bidding starting today (30SEP04).
