DWTS Star Nelly's Girlfriend Recreates 'Pretty Woman' Scenes as She Transforms into 'Vivian'
Shantel Jackson, girlfriend of famous American rapper and singer Nelly, dressed up as Vivian, the lead character from the blockbuster rom-com "Pretty Woman" for Halloween.
In the spirit of Halloween, actress Shantel Jackson uploaded a series of posts on her Instagram feed, showing off her iconic costume.
In the pictures, the star successfully recreated scenes from the hit 1990 movie "Pretty Woman" and dressed up as Vivian, the lead character played by actress Julia Roberts.
In a video, Jackson walked up to sit by a roadside bench dressed in the same clothes as Vivian in that particular scene from the film. She was clad in a revealing white shirt, a mini denim skirt, and a huge red jacket.
She combined the look with black leather ankle boots and a black hat covering her hot shoulder-length blonde hair. In one of the photos, Jackson humorously superimposed herself on a screenshot of a scene from the film with lead actor Richard Gere in it.
The next slide was a photo from the original scene from the movie so her fans could see how well it was re-enacted. The actress also posted a hot shot of herself on the ground as she recreated another scene.
Gazing into the camera, she had her hand placed lightly on her red lip as she rested on her elbows and stared into the camera. The photo was also accompanied by the original picture from the movie.

Fans could not get enough of her beauty as they trooped to the comment section to share words of admiration. A fan said, "nailed it my favorite movie," while another exclaimed, "omg you recreated my favorite movie. Great job."
With her remarkable acting skills, Jackson was able to portray the role of Vivian, who was a roadside prostitute. Over the years, she has also shown the world her prowess, featuring in movies like 2012's "Freelancers," among many others.
In 2016, the star joined the cast of the E! reality series "The Platinum Life," which aired for only eight episodes. She also appeared in two episodes of Nelly's documentary series "Nellyville," which aired on BET.
The pair met in 2014 through a mutual friend and have been together ever since. In a 2017 interview, the rapper opened up about his relationship with Jackson, revealing that all that mattered to him was the reciprocated love and support he got from the actress.
Unsurprisingly, the couple has been through their fair share of Hollywood scandals and bad publicity. That same year, Nelly was accused of rape while on tour. However, Jackson stuck to his side and even posted a video where she gushed about their lovely relationship.
Three years later and the pair have successfully built a long-lasting bond. Late last month, the rapper, who recently took part in the hit show "Dancing with the Stars," candidly spoke about his love for the actress.
He confessed that he felt she was "the one" and even implied that their engagement was coming soon as they were working towards it. After six years together, it is safe to say that the pair are a match made in heaven since their love only seems to wax on stronger.
