One of my favorite movies of all time, The Wizard of Oz will be soon celebrated for its 70th anniversary in 2009. In honor of such a wonderful film, Warner Bros Consumer Products and Crystallized Swarovski Elements have asked some of the top accessory and ready-to-wear designers to design their contemporary vision of the iconic ruby slippers.

According to Fashion Week Daily, designers such as Alberta Ferretti, Betsey Johnson, Gwen Stefani, Christian Louboutin, Diane von Furstenberg, Giuseppe Zanotti, Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Moschino, Oscar de la Renta, Roger Vivier and Sergio Rossi will all be creating designs for the collection.

Unfortunately these shoes will not be for sale as they will be auctioned off for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's Kids. Let's hope there are alot of bids!
