Native Bunch | Ruby Red
Red Proteas & Red Leucadendrons
Our posies this week took inspiration from the beautiful Ruby Red colour of the slippers worn by Dorothy in the movie The Wizard of Oz. There is thought to have been seven pairs of the red sequinned covered shoes made although only four pairs are considered authentic. One owner of a pair is Lady Gaga who was given the pair for her 25th birthday. This gift had an enormous emotional impact on her as she explained how she was bullied at school. Wanting more than anything to perform the lead role of Dorothy in the school musical of The Wizard of Oz she lost the part to the school bully. The slippers are symbolic of her talent and determination to rise above her set backs to become one of the worlds most recognised performers.
