Careful you don't slip! Whoopi Goldberg steps out in a pair of humorous banana skin shoes

She is well known for being a funny woman on film, but it seems Whoopi Goldberg's sense of humour also extends to her costume choices.  

The 56-year-old actress and View moderator stepped out at the Paris premiere of the stage show of Sister Act, sporting a pair of fun banana skin style shoes.

Whoop teamed her humorous footwear with a billowing dark grey and white coat over black trousers as she posed for pictures with the cast of the show.

However, her designer shoes don't come cheap.

Designed by Israeli 'shoe sculptor' Kobi Levi, the banana style pair are priced at a whopping $1,400 on his website.

The actress certainly seemed to be enjoying the creations, beaming wildly as she posed with the French cast of the show, which Whoopi is producing.

The Oscar-winning actress appeared in the hit film of the same name , playing disco singer Deloris Van Cartier, who hides in a convent after witnessing a murder.

Deloris soon becomes a hit with the nuns when she turns the convent choir into a sensation.

Whoopi, who is giving up smoking, seemed particularly concerned about spending the flight over to Paris with no cigarettes.

'Greeting all in Paris France,' she tweeted on Wednesday. 'And still cigg free and happy, looking forward to Sister Act in French!'

Sister Act has been a successful stage show since being adapted from the 1992 movie, and currently has productions running in the UK, New York and Hamburg, with more planned.

Meanwhile, the politically minded star has also been hitting the headlines for posting a series of tweets criticising Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. 

'Mr Romney the man I was talking about turned into a man who flushed his ideals down the drain,' Whoopi wrote in one post on her Twitter account. 

Her response came after Romney was captured on video making a joke at her expense while talking about appearing on The View.
