Julia Roberts’ Niece Wears ‘Pretty Woman’ Hooker Costume For Halloween

In 1990, Julia Roberts wore a now-iconic outfit of black leather boots, blonde wig, and white tank top connected by a gold ring to a blue mini-skirt when she portrayed Pretty Woman’s hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold Vivian Ward.

According to TODAY, Roberts’ niece Emma Roberts, who wasn’t even born until a year after the film came out, decided to wear a replica of the same outfit for Halloween. Emma wore the outfit to attend a Halloween party with boyfriend Evan Peters (American Horror Story). If only Peters would have dressed up as Richard Gere’s character, the two would have been a perfect pair.

The Pretty Woman inspired costume has sparked controversy in the past. There was a child beauty pageant contestant named Paisley, age 3, who was many sizes smaller, on a 2011 episode of Toddlers Tiaras who dressed up in the same outfit.

Another pageant mom was horrified when she saw the young little girl wearing such a provocative outfit and said, “I would never ever do that to my little girl. Ever … It’s outfits like that that give us a bad rap.”

However, at the age of 21, Emma is hardly a toddler, and she is not the only woman who wants to dress like a prostitute on Halloween. In fact, you can buy similar costumes online.

Not everyone loved Emma’s costume, including Alexis Rhiannon on Crushable.com who wrote:

“(Julia Roberts) also played many other roles! Very few of them actual hookers! You could’ve been Tinker Bell from ‘Hook,’ or Erin Brockovich, or even a Mystic Pizza! The boys would’ve loved that!”
