Emma Roberts makes grocery shopping fashionable in red-flared denim and floral ankle boots the day after her debut as AHS's leading lady

With Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Sarah Paulson all out of the picture this season on American Horror Story, this Scream Queen is finally taking on the leading lady role for the latest season of the anthology series.

And on Thursday, the day after the season premiere on FX, actress Emma Roberts was seen making a grocery and juice run in a subtly edgy and fashionable ensemble.

The 28-year-old niece of Julia Roberts was seen carrying two bags loaded with groceries, wearing a white tank top that showed off her toned arms and shoulders with a red bra underneath.

She wore a light blue-washed pair of cropped denim jeans from Stickybaby, but the real focus of Emma's ensemble was below the knee, as the jeans gave way to what looked to be a flare of bright red lace coming out of each pant leg.

Continuing the pop of color at her feet, the Aquamarine performer donned a pair of delightful black and floral ankle boots. 

Roberts wore her dark hair pulled back in a bun, and a pair of rounded gold-rimmed sunshades for her errands.

The Scream 4 starlet was also seen sipping a green juice, and wore a saddle-style purse across her delicate frame.

Emma is starring as the (seemingly) good girl Brooke Thompson on Season 9 of American Horror Story, which this season takes the title 1984.

The action takes place at Camp Redwood, where campers and counselors alike are facing off against (shocker) a grisly serial murderer.

The '80s and slasher movie tropes are already plentiful, with only one episode having aired thus far.

Emma has become somewhat of a horror darling, ever since her bonkers turn in 2011's Scream 4 and subsequent appearance in Season 3 of AHS: Coven in 2013, where she held her own in a coven of witches that included Bates, Lange, Taissa Farmiga and Frances Conroy.

Ryan Murphy also placed her at the center of another horror series, the 'semi-anthology' Scream Queens which lasted two seasons from 2015 until 2016.

Roberts has a bevy of new projects coming up outside of AHS, including the politically-tinged horror thrilled The Hunt, which also stars Hilary Swank.
