Hoping someone may be able to help me (on behalf of my mother). She would like to find a dress like the one Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman to my sister's wedding later this year. I hope the picture works. Any ideas where we can look?

That looks like the sort of thing that companies like Escada and Celine were producing in the 1980s. I'll have a Google and see if there's anywhere selling secondhand, or perhaps 'inspired by'

I think that unless you get a lucky vintage find, it would be easier to get one made for her.

I tried looking at 80s power dresses and came up with one on Etsy.

not identical but almost.

We were wondering whether she would have to get one made. Link didn't work for me I'm afraid. All assistance appreciated.

The etsy one looks the right shape definitely.

What size is she? What colours might she like?

And does it have to be a dress? Because this Escada suit on ebay definitely has the same vibe.

She is a 10 with a tiny waist. Not sure what colours she wants. We are not allowed to wear black. Have sent her the link to the thread to follow but she is not a mumsnetter so can't reply.
