Alison Krauss is going to the Oscars. She will be wearing one-of-a-kind shoes (made specifically for the Oscars) by designer Stuart Weitzman. The all-diamond Cinderella style shoes with four-inch heels are worth two million dollars. The right shoe even sports a five-carat diamond! Krauss was asked to wear the shoes because Weitzman’s daughters are fans of hers. She will have to turn the shoes back in after the event, but will get replicas studded with crystals to keep her memories of the night alive.
Krauss will also be a part of the four-song performance from the “Cold Mountain soundtrack,” with Annie Lennox, Sting and Elivs Costello.
