There's no place like Hollywood.

A pair of ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz have been sold at auction for £412,000. The size 4.5 (UK) were bought by a private collector who owns a memorabilia shop in Hollywood. 

Made from red satin and covered in red sequins, they are one of only four surviving pairs from the eight Garland had made for her role as Dorothy in the 1939 classic.
