Pretty Woman – Vintage Style Crush

There is something about vintage clothes that always seems to assume the personality of the wearer. Pretty woman is one of the favourite movies that expresses the character’s personality through their styles pretty well. I grew up watching this timeless movie and I always cry at the end of the movie. It shows morals, characters, styles, personalities and love. These thigh-high patent boots and floor-sweeping, off-the-shoulder red gown iconic outfits transformed Vivian from a street walker to the most stylish and fashionable young woman.
Costume designer Marilyn Vance captured the timeless ensembles and showed us how to dazzle in different outfits for different occasions.

Here’s a short scene and a lesson learnt from the movie, taken from Associated Content.

After a previous day of stressful shopping, Edward wakes up Vivian, hands her his credit card and tells her it’s time to shop. When she informs him that the sales people at the store she went into yesterday were mean to her, he goes along with her to shop and makes sure she is taken care. He then leaves her to shop on her own. On her way home, she decides to stop in the store from the day before.

Shop assistant: “Hello, can I help you?”
Vivian: “I was in here yesterday, you wouldn’t wait on me.”
Shop assistant: “Oh.”
Vivian: “You people work on commission, right?”
Shop assistant: “Yeah.”
Vivian: “Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.”

Lesson-Don’t judge a person by their appearance. You may be surprised at what you learn once you get to know them better.
