Pretty Woman, Julia Roberts, Nasty Gal Dress

Remember that racy dress with the skin-baring cutouts that Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman?

Well, it's back, and we can thank Emma Watson, in part, for its unexpected resurgence.

Dressed as her character Nikki from her upcoming film, The Bling Ring, the former Harry Potter star wears a black-and-white version of the sexy frock on the May cover of British GQ.

We imagine her new role is part of an attempt to distance herself from her oh-so-wholesome Hermione character, and we can't think of a better way than donning a dress worn by pop culture's most recognizable hooker.

But perhaps the dress isn't quite as racy now as it was back in the '90s, since it's been widely embraced by mainstream shoppers. As Fashionista reports, online retailers Asos and Nasty Gal hawked black versions of the figure-flaunting dress, but have sold out of the apparently popular design.

Have to have the iconic dress? Nasty Gal offers a back in stock section, so you too may have your chance of looking like Roberts' version of a pretty woman.
