American Haute Story: Emma Roberts's Ultimate Red Carpet Looks

Feb 10 2014 - 10:30am

You can tell just from looking at Emma Roberts that this lucky girl shares genetic code with aunt Julia Roberts [1] — but that's not the actress's only claim to fame. This fresh face is a Young Hollywood trendsetter, boasting a fashion résumé that highlights her penchant for sweet-chic designs and some sexier fare too. From her recent engagement [2] to a sophisticated new 'do [3], Emma has grown out of the Nancy Drew mold and into more mature roles [4] without skipping a sartorial beat.

In honor of Roberts's 23rd birthday today, we're zeroing in on her ultimate red carpet moments thus far — from her most recent, a sultry Lanvin [5] silhouette at this year's Golden Globes, to a look at her prettiest appearances in Christian Dior [6] and Chanel.
