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?

Roberts: Snapette is a new app for the iPhone and it was something I wanted to get involved in because I am a huge fan of fashion and of course I love shopping, and this is something like Instagram-meets-Yelp where you can take photos, you can 'like' photos, you can look at what other people are uploading and find out where to buy everything, so for me I'm always like, 'Where'd you get that? Where'd you get that?' So, for me, this app is great because you can look at what you want and see where the closest place is to go and buy it so it's awesome.
