Last year, the 70th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz inspired Harrods department store. It was hard to misunderstand the theme: For the building's exterior, the company commissioned a design team to craft a 12-foot version of the Wicked Witch of the West's legs that looked as though they were peeking out from under the building. The ruby slippers were composed of 46,000 crystals, 500 pounds of glitter and 200 fiber-optic lights. The windows carried out the theme, depicting a variety of scenes from the famous film.
