Judy Garland launched to stardom as Dorothy Gale in the 1939 classic "Wizard of Oz," and film and memorabilia fans alike have resonated with the character for decades.
The sale of Garland's iconic blue gingham pinafore dress marked another milestone for the film, fetching $480,000 at an auction on Saturday, according to auction house Julien's Auctions.
The dress, designed by Adrian, is regarded as one of the only complete costumes with the white blouse and pinafore both intact and features a label that reads "Judy Garland 4461."
The last time the dress changed hands was at a Christie's East auction in 1981, when it was sold by Kent Warner, an MGM costume designer who acquired several costumes from the film as part of a liquidation of the studio's wardrobe department in 1970.
The winner of the auction has not been named.
