‘Dorothy’ Dress Auctioned for $480K

The blue gingham dress Judy Garland wore as Dorothy in Hollywood classic The Wizard of Oz went for $480,000 at an auction in Beverly Hills this weekend. The buyer of the dress—which did not come with the iconic ruby slippers in which Dorothy traipsed through a world of Munchkins, witches, and poppy fields—was not identified. A skirt owned by Marilyn Monroe and a dress worn in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music were also auctioned off.
