Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon bid $21,000 for a pair of Project C.A.N.V.A.S shoes and a diver’s watch designed by Audemars Piguet at an art fundraising auction to benefit the Urban Arts Partnership at the Opera Gallery in New York City last weekend.

Both Nick and Mariah also designed custom shoes for the event, with Mariah’s bling-inspired sneakers selling for $2,000 – the highest price paid for a single pair of footwear throughout the evening – which was snatched up by BET chairman Debra Lee.

Nick, who hosted the evening, recently praised Project C.A.N.V.A.S – which stands for CAN Visually Achieve Success and promotes individuality and personality – saying: ‘’It inspires originality for young people.’’

Other celebrities contributing shoe designs at the event: singer Cee Lo Green, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and rapper Swizz Beatz. The shoes created by the celebrities are auctioned off to benefit various art programs in New York City schools.
