Pretty Woman Turns 20: What’s Your Favorite Scene?Mar 25, 2010 @ 4:26 pm
We’re sure, like us, you’ve seen Pretty Woman quite a few times. What’s not to love about the iconic Cinderella story starring Julia Roberts as Vivian Ward, a hooker with a heart of gold who gets swept away by her handsome Prince Charming, played by the dapper Richard Gere? The film that made Roberts a household name celebrates its 20th anniversary this week (we can’t believe it’s been that long either!) and we’re recalling a few of our favorite scenes. Vivian singing Prince’s “Kiss” in the bubble bath charmed us to no end, and the moment she stepped out in that stunning, off-the-shoulder red dress (thankfully the costume designer didn’t go with black!) remains forever etched in our memory. But ultimately our favorite part has to be when Vivian hits Rodeo Drive for a shopping spree, giddy with the prospect of designer clothes, shoes and the limitless credit card, and that wonderfully satisfying scene where she gives the snooty saleswoman a piece of her mind—no one messes with Vivian Ward! Watch that memorable scene after the jump and share your favorite Pretty Woman moments in the comments section below!
UPDATE: InStyle Fashion Director Hal Rubenstein recalls the pinnacle scene that made Roberts a movie star: “The scene in the red dress, when Gere opens the box with the necklace and shuts it just as Roberts reaches for it. Her laugh at that moment is how we knew she was a star!”
