Dorothy's Wizard Of Oz Dress Goes Somewhere Over The Auction Block

Soon, you can get your hands on Dorthy Gale's dress, but it'll cost you a pretty little penny!

The blue and white gingham pinafore and blouse worn by Judy Garland in the iconic 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz, is being auctioned off next month by celebrity auctioneer, Darren Julien.

The costume is one of the only complete costumes of original pinafore and blouse known to exist and is expected to fetch at least $500,000.

Dayum!

The bidding starts at $200,000 on November 9, but for those who just want to be in its presence, the pinafore will be on display at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills from November 5-8.

Leonardo DiCaprio already saved her ruby slippers, maybe he'll save this too!

This sounds AH-mazing!

London's Victoria & Albert Museum will host an exhibition of some of the most iconic costumes featured on the silver screen.

Some notable pieces going on display include Marilyn Monroe's white The Seven Year Itch dress, Audrey Hepburn's black Givenchy gown from Breakfast at Tiffany's, Judy Garland's The Wizard of Oz pinafore and Sharon Stone’s sexy white Basic Instinct dress.

The exhibit will be broken into three acts so visitors can get a better understanding of the costume maker's design process.

Neat!

Disney MAY Have Found Their New Wicked Witch Of The East!

rachel weisz may be new wicked witch of the east

Last month, we were pleased to hear that both Hilary Swank and Michelle Williams were up for the role of the Wicked Witch of the East in Disney/Sam Raimi's upcoming film Oz: The Great and Powerful.

Both actresses seemed like great choices, but now we've learned that Rachel Weisz is currently in negotiations to play the role in the sort-of-prequel to The Wizard of Oz, which also stars James Franco as Oz, and Mila Kunis as the Wicked With of the West.

We could get behind Rachel for this role. She could DEF pull it off!

Such a great cast! We're getting increasingly excited for this one.

What do U think of Rachel Weisz as the Wicked Witch of the East? Is she right for the part?

Will Charlie's Goddesses Be Next To Go? Rachel Oberlin's Mom Is Worried

Filed under: Icky Icky PooCharlie Sheen

could charlies goddesses go next

Last night, Charlie Sheen's children were taken away from him, based on a court order from his ex Brooke Mueller.

Now, it looks Charlie's Goddess Rachel Oberlin aka Bree Olson COULD be next to go, if her mother Marie Oberlin has anything to do with it.

Here's Rachel's mother on her concerns for her daughter:

"I was doing laundry this morning and I had the TV on in the background. I was walking by with a load of laundry and I heard [Sheen] say something about goddesses. And I thought, 'Oh brother, what is he talking about?' I didn't know he was talking about my daughter. I thought he was talking about his ex wife or something."

"I tried calling Rachel right after that. I wanted to talk to her. But there was no answer. I wonder what he promised her … I just don't want to see her hurt."

"I just wish I could get in touch with someone who could give me some insight into all this. I just want to know what he is thinking. Rachel calls me about once a week and says, 'Hi, mom. It's me. Everything is okay.' But I can't get much more out of her than that."

More from Goddess Rachel's mother:

"What would I tell her? She needs to think about her future. I'd tell her that just like [in] The Wizard of Oz, there's no place like home. She was a straight-A student in school. But she's an adult now. I don't know what advice I can give an adult."

"I pray every day to God that she will wake up and say, 'This is not for me. This is not how I want my life to be.' "

We sympathize with Rachel's mother. Charlie's house is definitely not the right environment for anybody her, and we hope that the Goddesses both leave him.

He needs to be at a facility, NOT living with two beautiful women, who are further perpetuating his delusion that his life isn't a mess.

Thoughts???
