CelebStyle: What role does fashion play in your life?
Emma Roberts: Fashion has always played a huge role in my life. From going about a regular day to hitting a red carpet event, fashion is always on my mind.
CS: How would you describe your personal style?
ER: My personal style is pretty laid back day-to-day. Boots and jeans are my must haves. I love bright lips to throw in pop. For the red carpet, I love dresses. It's fun to have an excuse to dress up.
CS: Do you have a stylist? How do you go about choosing the looks you'll wear on and off the red carpet?
ER: Yes, I've been collaborating with stylists Emily and Meritt of Current/Elliott for quite some time. Choosing looks is all about intuition. I go with what feels right but also starting to take more risks as I get older.
