Dorothy's Oz dress goes up for sale
Published 08/10/2012 | 10:23
The dress worn by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz is going up for auction with an estimated value of more than £300,000.
The white puff-sleeve blouse and blue gingham pinafore has inspired countless Halloween costumes since the film was released in 1939.
Although several identical dresses were made for her character Dorothy, the dress to be sold is the only version seen in the film and the only complete original dress to survive.
The outfit will be on view at London's Stafford Hotel, before being exhibited at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills, next month prior to the auction on November 9 and 10.
