Click Your Heels and Cough Up $3 Million For Dorothy's Ruby Slippers

comments

rub slippersWe're guessing that the Wizard of Oz himself may not have enough dough to bid on Dorothy's infamous ruby slippers. This December, the one-and-only red glitter shoes from 1939's The Wizard of Oz will go up for auction. (Not to be confused with Miu Miu glitter booties, but those may cost you a pretty penny, as well.) Believed to have been worn by Judy Garland herself, the shoes are up for grabs as of December 16, as part of a Hollywood Memorabilia sale. The pair was found by a costume-department worker on the MGM lot in the early 1970's, and in primo-vintage condition to boot. You might need more than a Christmas bonus to afford this piece of cinematic fashion history, as they are expected to fetch between $2 and $3 million. No, you're not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy.
