Dorothy's dress isn't in Kansas anymore! To everyone who has ever seen The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy’s white and blue gingham dress is just as recognisable as her glittering red shoes.  Here at MummyPages, we were quite delighted to hear that Judy Garland’s iconic dress is to be put on display in Ireland’s premiere fashion and style museum beginning on Wednesday May 22 and can be viewed until July 31 2013 free of charge, daily from 9am-6pm daily.
 
The blue and white pinafore costume, recently sold for the record amount of $480,000 USD at Julien’s Auctions last November and includes the original blouse and pinafore worn by the star in the magical movie.  
 
The dress garnered much press attention while it was being auctioned and this is a fantastic opportunity for film and fashion fans to view such an unforgettable piece of cinematic history.
 
During the exhibit, the iconic costume joins Judy Garland’s ‘Manuela’ ivory satin wedding dress from 'The Pirate'(MGM 1948) which is part of the museum’s permanent collection.
