The Ruby Slippers from ‘The Wizard of OZ are coming to Solange!
Solange is proud to announce that for two privileged days in her Beverly Hills, London and New York boutiques the Ruby Slippers worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz (1939) will be showcased before being auctioned off as part of the “Icons of Hollywood” three day auction by the leading dealership Profiles in History.
“They were much more than just a piece of Hollywood memorabilia, much more than a valuable piece of industry history. They transcended Hollywood, to the point where they represented the powerful image of innocence to all America.”
– Rhys Thomas writes in his book The Ruby Slippers of Oz
As Solange says ‘The Ruby slippers will feel right at home over my rainbow carpet and in my emerald city’.
