Ruby Slippers!

I've always loved the Wizard of Oz, and loved Dorothy's ruby slippers in the movie. My dream is to one day own a pair of my own sparkly ruby-colored shoes. One of these designs would be fabulous! My favorite is the Christian Louboutin pair.

For next years 70th anniversary of ‘The Wizard of Oz’, Hong Kong shoe boutique On Pedder has partnered with Warner Bros to commission the most trendy fashion designers to create their own interpretation of the famous red shoes for a modern Dorothy. Including Bruno Frisoni, Alexander McQueen, Erickson Beamon, Giuseppe Zanotti, Pierre Hardy, Marni’s hi-tech heels (that play ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ when plugged in) and Stella McCartney’s strapped sandals or even Azzedine Alaia’s sparkly ballet pumps, the creations are a true homage to the legendary film.

The shoes were unveiled at the On Pedder flagship store on 21 November. At the end of the exhibition, the shoes – including a replica of the original pair worn by Judy Garland in the film – will be sold off in a silent auction and the proceeds donated to charity.
