Emma Roberts appears in the suspenseful new film The Blackcoat's Daughter, and she's always been a thriller when it comes to red carpet style. Here's the thing, though: Instead of opting for wild, bright-hued style items (and, hey, there is nothing wrong with a jolt of color!), Emma tends to stick with black, white, and neutral hues. Still, she manages to keep her style looking anything but basic. Take a look back at 10 of Emma's best red-carpet moments, and get some inspiration for jazzing up basic hues wihle you're at it.
A flirty blue and black sequinned SJP dress (from actress and designer Sarah Jessica Parker) was a sweet and age-appropriate stunner for her 2007 appearance at the Kids Choice Awards, when she was just 16. It was 10 years ago, but we definitely want to steal those lovely and still on-trend gold and black shoes.
Emma has often used her hair color as a playground for experimentation (have you seen her new smokey quartz hue?). She ditched her strawberry blonde locks for black hair and a sophisticated Chanel dress for the 2008 premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
The dark hair suited her so much, she kept it on for the next year, turning heads in Versace for the Star Trek premiere. Beam her up!
She sizzled in strapless grey Lanvin for H&M— a cheap 'n chic look that she elevated with an Hermès belt—in 2012.
She settled back into a honey blonde in cute (and affordable!) Topshop to celebrate the premiere of Celeste and Jesse Forever at the Sundance Film Festival, also in 2012.
Emma starred in 26 episodes of American Horror Show between 2013 and 2015, and served up some incredible red-carpet fashion during her seasons. Peep this Cushnie et Ochs confection worn for the 2013 premiere.
She chose a grown-up and elegant Lanvin gown for the Golden Globes in 2015...
and wore a plunging Jenny Packham number for the 2015 Emmys. That awards season ushered in a new era of couture sophistication.
With her Yanina Couture and Armani Prive gowns, worn at the 2016 and 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar parties, respectively, her sirenhood is undeniable. It'll be hard to see how she can top these flawless looks, but we know she will.
