OneModelPlace.com members who are film buffs may be interested to know that one of the most famous pairs of shoes in cinematic history can literally be yours for the taking.
Christopher Rosen of Moviefone reports that there’s no place like (your) home for Dorothy’s red slippers from ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ In Los Angeles on Dec. 16, Profiles in History will auction off a pair of the iconic glittery red shoes worn by Judy Garland in the 1939 classic.
