Actress Emma Roberts choice of leg wear this weekend in Los Angeles has proved controversial.
In what was undoubtedly intended as an attempt to show off her admirably slender legs in all their glory, the socks
may have actually had the opposite effect.
The thigh-high black socks lacked some of the allure of tights or another alternative piece of legwear, and left an unusual gap of flesh between her shorts and sock-tops.
Some may have easily mistaken the 20-year-old walking down Sunset Boulevard for her auntie, Julia Roberts, who famously donned thigh-high black leather boots for her role in Pretty Woman.
However, Roberts does at least have some fans of her 70s style outfit. Her close friend Zelda Williams may have even helped her buy the socks herself, having tweeted last week: "Lovely lunch and vintage shopping day with @RobertsEmma. May or may not have made her try on a head-to-toe 80's Pretty Woman ensemble."
