Gwen Stefani


The singing sensation is tapped to join top shoe designers to redesign Dorothy's ruby red shoes from the timeless classic film "The Wizard of Oz" to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the film.

Singer turned fashion designer Gwen Stefani has been selected as one among the 19 top shoe designers to use her expertise to redesign Dorothy's infamous ruby red shoes from the timeless classic film "The Wizard of Oz". Supported by Swarovski, Gwen, under her L.A.M.B label, will create her own version of the ruby slippers to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the family film epic next year.

Other prestigious shoe designers who are taking part in the project include; Alberta Ferretti, Christian Louboutin, Diane von Furstenberg, Giuseppe Zanotti, Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Moschino, Oscar de la Renta and Roger Vivier. All the shoe style gurus will display their designs at the Saks Fifth Avenue department store on September 4 later this year.

The collection of shoes will then be displayed at the tents at Bryant Park during New York Fashion Week before making a tour of the U.S. and eventually being auctioned off to benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation next year.

Gwen, in the meantime, has been taking break from the spotlight, waiting in anticipation for the birth of her second child with husband Gavin Rossdale. The couple who've been married since September 2002 have had one son together, Kingston James McGregor Rossdale.
