One of the most memorable scenes from the movie "Pretty Women" is when Vivian, played by Julia Roberts, stepped out in that unforgettable floor-length red evening gown she wore to the opera.

That iconic dress was the inspiration for the red dress the former Miss South Africa and Miss World, Rolene Strauss, recently wore.

"I watched the movie Pretty Woman again and just couldn’t get over the red dress!" the South African beauty commented on her Facebook page.

"I called Werner Wessels straight away and it became our inspiration for my next dress. Galluzzie Gini was the first name that came to mind and they were amazing!" she added.

Strauss posted a number of pics showing the making of the dress saying, "A lot goes into the making of a dress and I wanted to share the process with you".
