NEW YORK (AP) - Emma Roberts isn’t just making a name for herself as a rising star in Hollywood _ she has four films in the works _ she’s also leaving her mark in the world of fashion.

The 21-year-old routinely gets name-checked in magazines for her style on the red carpet and off, and she’s a coveted front-row guest at fashion shows.

It seems fitting then that she would sign on to be an official fashion adviser for Snapette, a social media shopping app, where she’ll blog and share photos of her fashion finds.

Roberts talks about her love of sunglasses, style inspirations and her one fashion rule:

AP: How did you become interested in fashion?

Roberts: Fashion has always been something I’ve had an interest in. Ever since I was little, my mom would tell me I would try to go to school in my dress-up heels and … a feather boa, and not see anything wrong with it. For me, fashion has always been something I love and something I get more into as I get older wanting to kind of take more risks, design stuff and be more involved in it in any way.

AP: Are you cautious not to wear too-casual clothes, like sweatpants, outside because you could be photographed?

Roberts: I never wear sweatpants out of the house. That’s probably my only rule. I know I’ll regret it if someone takes a picture of me. I’ll be like, `Ugh. I’m that girl that was wearing sweatpants and flip-flops out and about all day,’ and I don’t want to be that person. And I even have friends that are like, `Did you see that photo of me?’ I’m like, `Why are you wearing pajamas outside?’ So that’s like my only rule, really. No pajamas outside (laughs). By the way, I want to wear sweatpants on an airplane every day of my life but I’m like, `I don’t want a picture of me.’

AP: Is there any accessory you love to buy?

Roberts: I’ve always been a fan of sunglasses forever. I’m the kind of person who wears a new pair every day. I had a go-to pair that were these Dior, black cat-eye ones. Literally I’ve lost them three times, I have to re-buy them and I just found out I lost them the other day and I’m like devastated. There is a collaboration that Nanette Lepore designed a pair with me as her muse for Sunglass Hut and they ended up being these white cat-eye sunglasses, and I’m like, `Oh my God. So lucky!’ But they’re limited-edition so even I have to be careful not to lose them because I’m like, `I’m not going to be able to get them again even though they’re the Emma sunglasses.’ I ended up with two pairs and my sister already stole one. … The other pair I’m scared to take out because I know they’re going to end up in a cab somewhere in New York City and they’ll have been mine.

AP: Who are your fashion inspirations?

Roberts: I’m a big fan of people that look good on the carpet and off the carpet. I love Kate Bosworth, she always looks put together. I love Sienna Miller. … Audrey Hepburn, I think she looked immaculate. I still want everything she wore forever ago today.

AP: What about nail polish? What color do you like to wear?

Roberts: I’m a red nail person or nothing. I always see people with these great designs but after 10 minutes of sitting there I’m like, `Dry!’ It’s the worst sitting there waiting. When people have cute things on their nails I’m like, `How long did that take? How long did you sit there? And you can’t do anything because your nails are wet!’

AP: Why did you partner with Snapette?
