Whoever bought her dainty shoes would make their original owner proud!

A pair of delicate silk shoes that "might" have been worn by Marie Antoinette on Bastille Day in 1790 recently hit the auction block and they weren't cheap.

The auction house expected the 200 year old shoes would fetch no more than $5,000 so they were obviously tickled pink when the winning bid was more than $57,000.

Dayum.

The size-six, white mules DO sound absolutely presh, with tri-color pleated ribbons adorning their facade.

The female who favored frivolity is smiling down on her modern-day patron!
