At the 2017 Oscars, actress Emma Roberts revealed to E! red carpet host Ryan Seacrest that she was one who helped her aunt Julia Roberts pick out her black-and-white Valentino gown in 2001—the year she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Erin Brockovich. At the time, Emma Roberts was just 10 years old, so, true to her years, she referred to the couture gown as a “skunk dress.”
“I remember when my aunt was trying on dresses for the year she was nominated and won, and the dress she wore, I said lovingly, ‘You should wear the skunk dress!'” Roberts told Seacrest. “It was the black and white dress, and it was the best one. She ended up winning in it.”
Sixteen years later, the Scream Queens star channeled Julia Roberts’ winning look on the red carpet, wearing a stunning Armani Privé gown in the same monochromatic color palette as her aunt’s vintage black-and-ivory gown. Emma Roberts’ gown, which featured a plunging delicate-lace neckline, was also eco-friendly, as a part of Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) campaign. She paired her sustainable, ethically-made gown, with red lips, newly-dyed strawberry blonde hair, and Atelier Swarovski drop earrings.
