Ashby stars Mickey Rourke and Nat Wolff with Emma having a supporting role. Awkward Ed Wallis (Nat Wolff) needs help fitting in and turns to his neighbor Ashby Holt (Mickey Rourke) for help. Ashby’s unforgiving brand of tough love soon tests their friendship, and it hardly helps when Ed learns that Ashby is a former CIA assassin. The film will make its debut at the Tribeca film festival in New York in April so hopefully soon will see a theatrical release (most likely limited).

You heard it here first! Emma Roberts will be the next star to document the stylish journey of her Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress, and InStyle.com has a sneak peek at her campaign. The brand is partnering with the actress as part of von Furstenberg’s Global Influencer Program Journey of a Dress, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the label’s iconic wrap dress that debuted in 1974.
“I first met Diane a year ago, where I got to be her guest at the Met Ball,” Roberts says. “I just remember being so excited to meet her because she’s such a fashion icon.”
The star is no newbie to von Furstenberg’s creations, having been a fan for years. “My first wrap dress I got as a teenager, and I remember wanting it so bad. I just fell in love with it,” she states. “My favorite thing about the wrap dress is just how timeless it is. It just never goes out of style.”
In February, the designer launched the digital campaign that follows her wrap dress around the world. The project, which kicked off with Coco Rocha, features a series of stylish influencers taking their von Furstenberg New Jeanne Two wrap dress in classic black-and-white chain link ($345; dvf.com) on a global tour. Roberts will document the journey of her wrap dress via social media throughout the summer beginning later this month. Interested to see where Roberts takes her famous wrap?

Emma Roberts is hunched over her coral iPhone, which looks like it has been run over by a monster truck and is being held together with tape. She’s tweeting with fans. Questions from around the world are shooting over like flares. “Do you like pickles?” asks a follower, which makes the 23-year-old actress laugh before she scrolls past. (She later pulls out her dog-eared copy of Ask the Dust to check the title before answering a very excited British girl’s query of what she’s reading.)
We are in Los Angeles and have spent the day shooting ELLE Canada’s first live cover. The excitement that comes with doing something experimental is still crackling in the air. It’s fitting that we’re forging into the digital future with Roberts—niece of Julia—because she might just be the ultimate embodiment of modern Hollywood: She’s outspoken, fiercely stylish, glued to her social media, friends with fellow former child star Miley Cyrus and, above all, surprisingly talented.
Born in New York to notoriously stormy actor Eric Roberts and his then girlfriend Kelly Cunningham, Roberts cut her acting teeth on projects like Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous in 2004 and Nancy Drew before branching out to flicks like We’re the Millers and American Horror Story (AHS). In fact, she has done a lot of growing up over the past few years. She fell for AHS co-star Evan Peters and then, last year in Montreal, had a fight with him that led to the actress being arrested on suspicion of assault. (She was released without charge the next day.) When asked about the incident, she merely shakes her head, unwilling, or unable, to talk about it.
Roberts’ rocky entry into adulthood makes her performance in Palo Alto especially moving. In the film, based on James Franco’s book of the same title, the actress plays a teen who is confused about what she wants and what it means to grow up. Her character, April, is caught up in an affair with her much older soccer coach, played by Franco. “You’re young,” he says to her in the film. “You don’t know why you do things.”
