’It was so good, I almost peed my pants!’
If you’re feeling a little nostalgic, we have good news for you: you can now buy one of Pretty Woman’s most memorable dresses from ASOS.
No, sadly it’s not THAT red opera dress, but it’s just as iconic. We’re referring, of course, to the one Vivian, aka Julia Roberts wears when she picks up Richard Gere on Hollywood Boulevard.
You know the one: white cami top and short blue shirt interlinked with a silver hoop, which she wears with thigh high vinyl boots. Well, she was a lady of the night after all.
Now fashion brand Hunza G is selling an exact replica in collaboration with ASOS, called the ‘iconic mini beach dress’.
On hearing the news, people have fallen into two camps, those who are well up for recreating one of their favourite movie looks, and those who think it’s all a bit wrong.
One user wrote on Instagram, 'Can't wait to wear it!', while another exclaimed, 'omg, really?' followed by heart emojis.

Meanwhile, others commented, 'This feels wrong' and 'oh yeah fancy dress #escort'.
While it was originally released in that iconic blue colour, as well as red and black, only the black version remains, but we think we prefer that version anyway.
If you want to make the look a little more, shall we say day friendly, pair it with some white sneakers and a soft trench coat.
Now in the words of Vivian, ‘Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.’

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
