Emma Roberts reveals one of her biggest fashion regrets

Like all of us, Emma Roberts has fashion regrets.

The actress and mother-of-one shared it vogue Beauty Secrets and got very real about her past style choices. As someone who started acting at age 9, Roberts has plenty of red carpet moments to ponder when it comes to some of her most memorable outfits (and not in a good way).

Roberts, 31, recalled the 2001 red carpet for the film To blowwhere she wore a casual outfit that she thought – at the time – was a real winner.

“I went to this store in Los Angeles, Fred Segal, and I picked out a cargo capri, a sequin tank top, and a handbag made out of tires with beer caps on the side. And I just thought I had arrived,” she shared about doing her skincare and makeup routines.

“I was in clogs,” she continued. “I was like, ‘This is my time.’ And I think back to that now and I’m like, ‘She’s so cute.’ I’m like, ‘She had no idea this wouldn’t fit.'”

As Roberts pointed out, though, her red carpet history spans two decades, so of course she’s going to have some dodgy outfits over the years.

“The amount of holy shitty outfits and makeup stuff I’ve done,” she said in the video with a laugh. “In my defense, it’s not fair because I was a child actor, so I’m bound to look like I did when I was 11.”

Roberts, who shares 2-year-old son Rhodes with Garrett Hedlund, got a more mature and memorable (in a good way) appearance growing up. Last week, she draped herself in red for a New York screening of Maybe I do. She opted for a head-turning Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini ruched dress with an asymmetrical neckline, Fred Leighton jewelry and a punchy red lipstick.

Last April, she made an appearance at the Vince Camuto pop-up in New York in a look that was totally ahead of the trend. She channeled Wednesday Addams – before Netflix Wednesday even dropped – wearing a black knee-length dress with long ruffled sleeves and a white ruffled bib with a matching collar, completing the look with a pair of Vince Camuto sandals in black woven leather with gold and silver accents ‘silver. The ensemble was completed with a bold red lip and matching nails.
