Emma Roberts Chops Her Hair Into A Daring Fringe But Trolls Slam Her New Look

Emma Roberts oozed movie star glamour in a form fitting strapless gown at the Critics' Choice awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California on Thursday, as she appeared with boyfriend Evan Peters.

But the 26-year-old debuted a blunt new hairstyle with fringe bangs that proved quite the contrast to her classic look - which garnered a less-than-enthusiastic reaction from trolls.

'Emma Roberts is me when I lock myself in the bathroom at 3am and emotionally cut my hair,' added one Twitter user.

Pradapremiere summed it up with: 'Emma Roberts new haircut is like what everyone is afraid they'll look like if they get bangs.'

Another compared her look to Courteney Cox's iffy haircut in Scream 3 - Emma went on to star with the Friends actress in Scream 4.

Emma seemed to be taking the insults lightly as she posted an Instagram of herself and beau Evan Peters with the caption: 'He got nominated. I got bangs'.

Emma has always been one to change her hair color as she often goes back and forth between blonde and brunette.

But the style usually stays the same with long and loose tresses that are easily swept to the side.

Therefore, her dramatic attempt at fringe bangs with a blunt cut came as a surprise on the red carpet.

However, she hit the mark as she showcased her enviable figure in the gorgeous couture dress that had a matching jacket.

She accessorized with a bedazzled clutch, a diamond ring, and a pair of gorgeous diamond drop earrings.

Her date Evan cut a dapper figure in a classic black tuxedo as they wrapped their arms around each other.

Meanwhile, Olivia Munn hosted the show, at which a cast of celebrity presenters announced film and TV critics’ picks for the best work of 2017.

HBO drama Big Little Lies was the big TV winner of the night with four awards, including best actress, which went to Nicole Kidman.

The series also scooped best limited series, while Kidman's costars Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern took home best supporting actor gongs.

Dominating the movie categories Guillermo del Toro's fantasy flick The Shape of Water won best picture as well as best director.

The movie, which stars Sally Hawkins as a mute woman who falls in love with a scaled creature, also won best score and best production design.

Meanwhile, best actor went to Gary Oldman for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Joe Wright's Darkest Hour.

Best actress went to Frances McDormand for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
