Click Your Heels Three Times: See Judy Garland's Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz Right Now at Solange Azagury-Partridge
There is arguably not a single pair of shoes that has more legend or nostalgia surrounding them than the famous ruby slippers that Judy Garland wore as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, courtesy of Glinda the Good Witch. They were ill-begotten (the Wicked Witch of the East was smashed by Dorothy's house), not practical for roaming around a forest full of scary flying monkeys, and magical (or horrifying, depending on how you feel about going home). The ruby slippers will be available to the highest bidder courtesy of auction Profiles in History on December 16, but you can see them now--up close and in person--at the Solange Azagury-Partridge boutique in NYC (809 Madison Ave). It's fitting that the jeweler should play host to the glittery kicks--she's well known for covering her jewelry in rainbow-colored gems (and she even has a rainbow carpet at her store).
