Minna meets Gaga

Ashlee Beard,

Lady Gaga performed in Helsinki’s Hartwall Areena during her recent Monster Ball world tour. During her brief stopover in the capital the star was presented with a double platinum award with a difference for her current album, the Fame Monster. Created by Finnish shoe designer Minna Parikka, the awards came in the form of a pair of high-heeled platinum pumps. ‘The shoes were from my own collection, painted platinum. I was given only three day’s notice but there’s nothing I wouldn't do for Gaga!’ says the celebrated designer. Despite the short timeframe, Parikka also managed to create a unique pair of bondage-style rope sandals as a gift for the singer.
