Jeweler Oscar Heyman & Bros contributed 642 round and oval rubies totalling some 120 carats, set in pure woven platinum on the 4 1/2 red satin stilettos.

#3′s Claim to Shoe Fame: In 2003 Stuart Weitzman created the “Ruby Slippers” in anticipation of another breakthrough starlet wearing them to that year’s Academy Awards. His inspiration was the original ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy, otherwise known as #6 in our list.
However Mr. Weitzman ended up cancelling his shoe’s appearance. His spokesperson Jane Weitzman stated…”we pulled the ruby shoes we were planning to show off at the Oscars out of respect for those fighting in Iraq.”
