Emma Watson Plays Pretty Woman Dress-Up For GQ! The Cut-Out Dress Is Back. Eep.

03 April 2013 by

Since Emma Watson shrugged off her goody-two-shoes ‘Hemione from Hogwarts’ persona, her adventures into looking seriously sexy haven’t stopped. First came the rebelliously short and cheeky ‘do, then we witnessed a series of butt-skimmingly brave frocks for each and every red carpet moment.

Emma Watson Plays Pretty Woman Dress-Up For GQ! The Cut-Out Dress Is Back. Eep.

Now, en character as the naughty Nikki in Sofia Coppola-directed upcoming flick The Bling Ring, she’s paid homage to Julia Roberts’ infamous hooker-dress from that ‘90s classic, Pretty Woman. And it’s all because of GQ. The men’s mag has styled Emma up in this revealing ensemble, complete with indoor-sunnies, a frap and that mysterious polka-dot hip tattoo. All the essentials.

With its belly-button metal hoop and two-tone colour blocking, there’s no denying the similarities between hers and Julia Roberts/Vivian Ward’s slightly more challenging white/lilac one-piece which successfully lured super-rich business busy-man Edward (HOT Richard Gere).

Despite the fact that these jersey frocks are beyond difficult to wear without a perfect body, many high street versions having been flying outta stores faster than you can say ‘pass me the protein shake’. According to Fashionista.com, a LBD style from Tripp NYC has sold out at three major retailers - Urban Outfitters, ASOS and Nasty Gal.

With crop-tops also a-go-go in celeb-town, there's no denying that a bit high-driff, mid-riff or full stomach could be on the cards this summer. There are plenty of shopping options available, and work-out regimes to match. But will you be bold enough to channel a full-on Pretty Woman moment this summer? If so… leave the boots and the wig at home, honey.
