Flashback to Pretty Woman and That Fabulous Red Dress That Made The Woman

So, it's Saturday night and I got to get my chick flick on. Thank goodness HBO had the kindness to show one of my fav chick flicks of all time, "Pretty Woman" (1990).

What's not to like about a little rags to riches story?


And, this red dress is probably my favorite dress of the 90's.
It was one of those fashion moments in the movies when it really takes your breath away and they really do create magic. Flawless.
Does anyone know if it's a Valentino?




Awe, the Julia Roberts in the bath singing scene...
What was that song? Prince, right?
It's a classic romantic comedy. Oh, how I love a good romance. Richard Gere isn't so bad to look at either. Ha, ha...
As I watch the movie for the hundredth time (Ok, maybe the tenth), I see how he brought out young Julia's sweet personality. Truly brilliant.

The count down to the Oscars red carpet begins for all of us that are crazy over just seeing what they are wearing. For some of us (couldn't be me!) this is one of the few glam events of the year. What? Seeing everyone I know in flip flops everyday at Kindergarten is truly inspiring. Really! What? You don't believe me?
I hope they can top this hot red number on young Julia Roberts. Oh, the power of a fabulous and well fitting red dress and red lipstick.

Who are your favorite contenders for the Oscars?
I adored "It's Complicated" with Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin.
With Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin hosting the show tonight, it should be a grand time.
Who do you think or hope is going to slam it down on the red carpet
or get an Oscar this evening?


Enjoy, dear friends.

xo,
Christina

Enjoy,

This was such an iconic movie. I liked the shopping scenes and of course that gorgeous red dress.

Actually I just met the woman who designed that dress - Vicky Tiel - author of the new book "It's All About the Dress." It was called the Torrid dress, though now it is naturally known as the Pretty Woman dress. You'd probably enjoy reading her book!
