Close, but no cigar.
Emma Roberts looked beautiful last night in a navy blue ruched dress and gold Kara Ackerman studs at the Velvet by Graham & Spencer flagship opening in Brentwood.
But as is the case with most of the 22-year-old's looks, she went and ruined it with a bad shoe pairing!
Emma's Bionda Castana lace-up booties, in her favorite footwear color of black, were too heavy for such an effortless and seksi look.
In fact, we're pretty sure the only reason she wore them was so she could carry that semi-complementary gold Jimmy Choo clutch.
Oh Emma, just once we'd like to see you in a simple non-black pump. Make it happen — soon!
