Gwen Stefani is set to reinterpret Dorothy's famous ruby slippers from 'The Wizard of Oz'.
The No Doubt singer is one of 19 designers who have been chosen by Warner Bros. Consumer Products and CRYSTALLIZED(TM) - Swarovski Elements to create their own version of Dorothy's footwear in honour of the 70th anniversary of the classic movie next year.
'The Wizard of Oz Ruby Slipper Collection' will be unveiled in a special event on September 4 at New York's famous department store Saks Fifth Avenue.
The 19 pairs of shoes - designed by fashion icons including Alberta Ferretti, Christian Louboutin, Diane von Furstenberg, Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Moschino and Oscar de la Renta - will then be displayed as part of New York Fashion Week, in the city's Bryant Park, before being taken around the US on a tour and then being auctioned off, with proceeds going to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
Gwen, who is considered one of the world's most stylish women, already has her own fashion line L.A.M.B.
