Judy Garland: Dorothy’s ‘Wizard of Oz’ dress up for auction
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Dorothy dress is going up for auction.
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 the production, 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 beginning Tuesday, before being exhibited at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, Calif., from Nov. 5 to 9, prior to the auction on Nov. 9 and 10.
