Watching this atm on Comedy Central, and both Vivienne and Kit nearly get kicked out of the fancy hotel because they're wearing skimpy outfits.

Wouldn't happen these days, the staff would just assume they're a stray Kardasian! 😄

Same here.

I never see anyone with beautiful hair in real life. I think it only exists on Instagram

Oops. Wrong thread!

You can still see replicas of that brown, polka dot dress available now. Polka dots are eternal!

I thought they got kicked out because they were hookers (and acting obviously)?

Oh hooray, people who want to talk to me about early 90s rom com fashion!

And the outfits definitely had something to do with it - hence the famous "big mistake. Huge" scene. Whereas nowadays dressing provocatively is normalised among the very rich.

I remember seeing the movie and thinking she looked bloody awful in the outfit she wore in the final scenes compared to her hooker outfits :p

Not sure even the very rich dress like hookers to wander around Beverly Hills...

I'd beg to differ, I remember noticing some very skimpy clothing when we visited Beverly Hills, and a quick google image search turns up photos of various Kardashian/Jenners shopping in outfits which would have fitted in very well in the early scenes of Pretty Woman!

You say that but this look is bang on trend right now!!!!!

I much preferred her hooker outfits when I was 10 blush

TweeterandtheMonkeyman Fri 24-Jul-20 16:44:26

I mean preferred them to her “classy” make over!

Yeah, I remember being particularly enraptured with her over-the-knee boots!
