Fan forks out for Shakira's bra

A fan has paid $3,000 (1,500) to own one of Shakira's bras in an auction for the pop star's children's charity.

The singer, who noted that her "breasts are small and humble" in her hit single Whenever, Wherever, is clearing out her wardrobe for the Bare Feet Foundation.

More than $60,000 (30,700) has been raised so far, with one fan paying $14,100 (7,200) to meet Shakira.

The charity is currently building a school for poor children in the singer's home country, Colombia.

Shakira's hits include Hips Don't Lie and Objection Tango
The jewelled bra, which Shakira wore on her Oral Fixation world tour in 2007, was designed by Roberto Cavalli.

Other items in the auction included a purple wig and Gibson guitar used in the video for Las De La Intuicion, which sold for $3,301 (1,700).

Another popular item was a shiny lavender skirt with turquoise and coral beading that Shakira wore while singing Hips Don't Lie on tour, which fetched more than $1,076 (550).

However, a Garden of Eden-style figleaf costume worn on the cover of her Oral Fixation 2 album failed to attract a starting bid of $10,000 (5,000).

Still up for grabs until Sunday are an electric Fender guitar and an acoustic Taylor guitar, both bearing Shakira's autograph.
