70 Years and Counting: It's Time to Put On Those Red Shoes and Go Dancing!

This week marks the 70th Anniversary of the Wizard of Oz! This film, which NEVER won an Oscar (which only goes to show, awards are not everything), had its Hollywood premiere on August 15, 1939 (Here's an LA Times article on the anniversary). Ms Twixt will remember those sparkly red slippers from her childhood forever! This film classic continues to delight audiences of all ages and even sparked the girl-power sequel: Wicked (We love, love, love the message of "defying gravity"!).
Ten fashion designers recently revamped Dorothy's ruby slippers for an exhibit shown during the Spring 2009 shows, and these are now on display in London. Given the anniversary this week, we wanted to share with you the slide show of these fantastic creations - enjoy!
