This timeless polka dot dress worn by Julia Roberts in 1990's Pretty Woman captures the moment that down-on-her-luck lady Vivian transforms into Richard Gere's fancy laydee for a day at the races (hey, that's Hollywood for ya). Julia earned herself a zillion fans and so did this outfit, with its sleek little deets like the matching hat ribbon made by costume designer Marilyn Vance's leftover material from the dress.

Take the look to your weekend 'dos by going dotty with a dress and matchy-matchy ribbon in your hair or on your wrist. Alternatively, take your cue from Burberry's recent collection where spots happily clashed with horizontal stripes – so haute right now.
