Julia Roberts’ iconic thigh-high PVC boots from Pretty Woman go up for auction

Julia Roberts is counting down the days to the presidential election and making sure to do her bit to encourage voters.

The 52-year-old actress took to Instagram on Wednesday with a gorgeous photo as she sported a ‘vote’ T-shirt, casual black blazer and jeans.

‘THIRTEEN DAYS TO GO!!! #weareinthistogether #earlyvoting #whenweallvote #getyourjush #wearamask’ she captioned the snap which is the latest in a string of posts that she has been sharing daily in the run up to November 3.

Meanwhile, the boots that Julia wore in Pretty Woman are being auctioned off. 

The actress donned a classic pair of shiny black high-heeled boots when she played escort Vivian Ward in the 1990 movie.

And now, the boots worn in the Garry Marshall movie could be owned by one lucky fashion fanatic, as they are set to go up for auction as a part of Prop Store’s annual live auction. 

The auction will feature iconic items not only from the hit 1990 film, but also from an array of movies and TV shows, including Friends, The Matrix Reloaded, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Batman, and more.

The 913 pieces from over 350 films set to be sold include the mechanical head from 1979’s Alien- estimated to be worth at least $52,000 – and Keanu Reeves’ complete Neo costume from 2003’s The Matrix Reloaded ($52,000 to $78,000). 

The shoes are expected to sell for between $13,000 and $19,000, and hopeful bidders can stake their claim on the boots between December 1 and 2, which is when the auction goes live. 

Anyone looking to place a bid will have to register first though, and registration is open from now until October 29. 

Meanwhile, Julia was honored with the Style Icon Award at the 2018 InStyle Awards, and said she felt undeserving of the accolade because she ‘never ever’ goes shopping, and instead just chooses ‘the right stuff’ that her style team brings for her to look at.

She said: ‘When you’re popular and tall, you just have these incredibly smart people to your house with racks of stunning things. 

‘And so, this award is for being good at saying, ‘Oh, I think that, that one.’ I went from pointing at the right stuff. That’s honestly the whole thing. I never go shopping. I just said I wanted to wear these shoes and that makes me somehow great in a very pretend way.’ 

And Julia also said she would give ‘credit’ for her style choices to her younger self, as she said she used to make bold decisions even if they didn’t look great. 

She added: ‘If I were to take any credit, I would thank 22-year-old version of me, who wore, ad nauseam, a sort-of-like high-ranking naval jacket that I found at a vintage store with inexplicable black-and-white horizontal striped leggings and thought I was fantastic. For that girl, I thank you.’
