The Wizard of Oz Page 1
Oz the Great and Powerful dominated the box office this weekend, raking in $80 million nationwide in ticket sales, but it could never have come to be if Judy Garland hadn’t donned ruby slippers and tapped her heels three times nearly 75 years ago. The Wizard of Oz has had no shortage of on-screen interpretations, but we’re taking a look at three of its best: the Disney film in theaters now, 1978′s Motown/Michael Jackson version The Wiz, and the original 1939 flick that started it all.
Sequins must be way more in than we realized. The ruby slippers Judy Garland wore as Dorothy in The Wizard Of Oz are on the auction block — and you’ll never guess how much they might go for.
When it comes to Hollywood duds, the white dress Marilyn Monroe wore above the subway grate in The Seven Year Itch ranks among the most iconic. This is why it sold for $4.6 million at Debbie Reynolds‘s auction.
We here at Styleite love shoes. We also love movies. So it’s no surprise that some of our favorite movies are about shoes. We’re actually a little miffed that there aren’t more movies about shoes, but that’s another post for another day. Today, inspired by some of the beautiful shoes in Sophie Theallet‘s spring collection for Nine West, we’d like to share some of our favorite shoe-movies with you.
