On November 9, bidding will start for an original Dorothy gingham and pinafore and blouse worn by Judy Garland. It will be auction by celebrity auctioneer, Darren Julien.The dress used to belong to Hollywood’s Robin Hood, Kent Warner. Warner sold the dress in 1981, along with his pair of ruby slippers.
Kent Warner’s pair of ruby slippers are know as “The Witches Shoes” and they where sold early this year for $2 million. Profiles in History handled the sale. Also, another original Dorothy gingham dress was sold, by Profiles, on December of 2011. It sold for $230,000 and a polka dotted trim test dress for Judy Garland was sold for $910,000, on June 2011. The test dress was owned by Debbie Reynolds. She owed the dress and a test pair of ruby slippers called “The Arabian Shoes” and sold the shoes for $510,000.
Little fact, Kent Warner sold his pair of ruby slippers on October 21, 1981. My birthday is October 21. Coincidence?
