With my big smile being somewhat of a distinguishing feature of mine, how could I not try to emulate Julia Roberts at some point? As a part of my new movie inspiration blog posts, I rented this gorgeous off the shoulder red gown from Rent the Runway and stopped by the lovely new Archer Hotel to do my modern take on Vivian from Pretty Woman. Vivian is spunky, strong, super sweet, loyal, and knows how to amazingly transition from hooker-chic to classy elegance with ease (gotta love the movies). I updated her opera look for the modern girl by losing the diamond necklace (not because I didn’t have one lying around or anything…) and adding a simple choker so as not to distract from the lovely lace neckline of this gown. I also changed her early 90’s up-do into a pinned up low pony and added some incredibly fun heels (more details on those coming soon).
I chose to shoot this look at a hotel because that’s where this movie mainly takes place. I chose the Archer because I had recently visited there for a fun blogger event and was blown away by the gorgeous suites! They each have fantastic photo art on the walls and such beautiful little design details. I can’t wait to come back to visit again soon! I think Vivian would approve.
