There’s no place like home, and Dorothy’s dress has reportedly found a new one. The dress, worn by Judy Garland in ‘The Wizard of Oz’, sold at an auction this weekend for $480,000.

"Did you know someone paid nearly $500,000 for dorothy's dress from "Wizard Of Oz?"

"We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of oz!"

The dress sold at an auction in LA this weekend. But a writer for Artlyst notes, it didn’t even come close to the prices of some other famous Hollywood garments.

“The dresses didn’t fetch anywhere near the $4.6m spent last year on Marilyn Monroe’s white ‘subway dress’ from the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch, and the $3.7m taken for Audrey Hepburn’s Ascot dress from My Fair Lady, auctioned in the Debbie Reynolds sale, arguably the greatest Hollywood costume collection to be auctioned in history.”

According to E! Online, Other big items auctioned off include a Steve McQueen racing jacket for $50,000 and a slice of Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding cake for $1,375. ABC’s Lara Spencer has more.

"How many of us have dressed up as Sorothy from 'The Wizard of Oz' for Halloween?"

"Somebody's wearing it right now -- first of all, no, i have not. To answer the question that's out there, no, i actually have not."

The buyer of the dress, made by MGM costume designer Adrian Greenberg, was not identified.
