Whitney had Ginger Rogers shoes as a centre piece
The late Whitney Houston owned a signed pair of Ginger Rogers’ dancing shoes. The shoes were given to her by concert promoter, David Gest as a thank-you for her performance at the 10th Annual American Cinema Awards in 1993. Gest was reportedly enamered with the diva’s performance. Ginger personally signed each shoe with a note which read 'to one of the greatest singers of all time, from your friend Ginger Rogers.'” Whitney reportedly had the valuable shoes encased in Plexiglas on display in her home.
