'He got nominated, I got bangs!' Emma Roberts chops her hair into a daring fringe as she accompanies boyfriend Evan Peters to Critics' Choice Awards... 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.
