Other lots included white platform shoes worn by Spice Girls singer Geri Halliwell in the 1997 movie Spiceworld which went for 500 pounds, while a pair of Jimi Hendrix's leather boots fetched considerably more -- 9,375 pounds.

Later this week, another auction of memorabilia will take place in Los Angeles, which offers even more lots, including Michael Jackson's iconic red leather jacket worn in the iconic 1983 music video for his song Thriller, which is expected to fetch between $200,000 and $400,000 at auction.

Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom, who has a five-month-old son Flynn with wife Miranda Kerr, has been crowned 'Most Stylish Celebrity Dad'. The 34-year-old actor beat celebrities including soccer star David Beckham and actor Jude Law in an online poll, reported MyCelebrityFashion online.

'With Father's Day coming in the UK we wanted to put celebrity dads under the fashion spotlight. As a new dad, it was interesting to see Orlando Bloom fly straight into the charts and clinch the top spot as the 'most stylish celebrity dad.

'The public evidently likes his eclectic style; and even though he beat David Beckham to the top spot, Beckham still managed to stay very near the top of the style charts with his 'casual' style,' said Andy Barr, Marketing Director
of the website.

Bloom picked up 71 per cent of the vote and was closely followed by Beckham with 66 per cent and singer Peter Andre, who received 59 per cent.

The Lord of the Rings actor recently said fatherhood has 'changed his life'. 'It's awesome, I love it. I hate that word but I love
being a father; it's changed everything in so many ways. Miranda is an amazing mother,' Bloom said.
