The blue and white gingham dress memorably worn by Judy Garland in the 1939 film classic "Wizard of Oz" went for $480,000 at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills. Now faded, the iconic "Dorothy" dress was part of a two-day Hollywood memorabilia sale that ended Nov. 10.
Trouncing its estimate was a slice of Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding cake which brought $7,500.
A racing jacket of Steve McQueen's sold for $50,000, the same price secured a purple skirt worn by Marilyn Monroe in the film "River of No Return."
Julie Andrews' "Sound of Music dress" fetched $38,400.
In 2011, one of four pairs of ruby red slippers worn by Garland as Dorothy, with an estimate of $2 million, went unsold. A group that included actor Leonardo DiCaprio purchased the pair for an undisclosed sum and donated them to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
