|Judy Garland's dress sold at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills for $480,000.|
So much so that last week the blue gingham dress Garland wore in the Wizard of Oz sold for $480,000, trumping items owned by the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Steve McQueen.
"It's an iconic piece," say Darren Julien, owner of Beverly Hills-based Julien's Auctions, which sold the dress. "It's one of those things you look at and you immediately know who wore it and in what movie."
