There’s rarely a dull moment onscreen for actress Emma Roberts, and on the red carpet, the emerging fashionista likes to keep it just as interesting. “I’ve just been doing different things,” the 19-year-old style star—and niece of screen legend Julia Roberts—told PEOPLE on Sunday at Spike TV’s Scream Awards in L.A. “I think it’s fun to change it up. Like, I don’t wanna be boring.” Roberts showed off her “sexy” side in a Pucci lace confection and Brian Atwood pumps on the red carpet on Sunday. “I’m [usually] pretty casual. Like, I love just doing jeans and boots and a T-shirt,” she explained. “But when I go on the red carpet I like to be fun and just kind of wear whatever makes me feel comfortable. As for trying on new trends for fall? “I’ve been trying the long dresses lately, but I think I’m too short is what I’ve realized,” revealed Roberts, who joined the ranks of Hollywood’s hottest shrieking starlets, including Megan Fox and Kristen Stewart, as the newest member of Scream‘s ensemble cast. And while Roberts may not be afraid of experimenting with her style but admits that watching the original Scream gave her quite a scare. “I watched half the movie with my eyes closed and my friends were like, ‘Emma, you’re gonna be in the next one. You can’t be covering your eyes while you’re watching the movie.'” — Christie LaRusso; reporting by Scott Huver;
