Dorothy’s ruby slip­pers need re­pair

7 Days in Dubai - - CELEBRITY FIX -

The ruby slip­pers that whisked Dorothy back to Kansas in three clicks are look­ing a lit­tle down at the heels, prompt­ing the Smith­so­nian to launch a $300,000 (Dhs1.1 mil­lion) on­line cam­paign to con­serve them. Mu­seum of­fi­cials started a Kick­starter fundrais­ing drive to re­pair the iconic slip­pers from 1939’s The Wiz­ard of Oz and cre­ate a new state-of-the-art dis­play case for them at the National Mu­seum of Amer­i­can His­tory. The se­quined shoes were crafted al­most 80 years ago by the MGM Stu­dios prop depart­ment and have grown frag­ile over time and the colour has faded.
