Daphne Guinness's Christies auction last night sealed the deal: She and Lady Gaga are now besties. Besides sharing a penchant for cripplingly high footwear, the two can now bond over the fact that they have owned the same garments (no word yet on which ones). Lady Gaga's purchases helped to surpass expectations for the auction, which raked in a half a million pounds (about $777,200). Daphne tweeted her love and appreciation, saying "And, thank you my friend Lady Gaga. You are a real person. and a great one! Your proof of friendship, your time was very touching XXXX." [Vogue UK]
