I did however see "Wicked", but that's another story. Literally.
You don't need to have seen the film or mermorised it backwards (Unlike our office resident historian Jane Austen) to recognise the iconic dress worn by Judy Garland's Dorothy in the film. All blue and white gingham and puffy sleeve, it's easily one of the best-known costumes in modern film history.
Thanks to Julien's Auctions in Beverley Hills, it could be yours - for a small US$500,000. That's right, the very same dress worn by Garland in the film is up for sale! Garland's costume is one of several identical outfits made for the movie, but the only one to have been seen on film and the only complete version to have survived intact.
