There's no place like Swarovski. At least, not when to-die-for ruby slippers are involved.

The "Wizard of Oz" Ruby Slipper Collection made its debut during Spring 2009 New York Fashion Week.

Now, in celebration of the iconic movie's 70th anniversary today (Aug. 15), the gorgeous, "Wizard of Oz"-inspired, Swarovski-encrusted shoes and sketches from top designers have made their way to London for display.
