When you equate a person to a snake, it’s usually taken by said person as an insult. But, we think Emma Roberts may have just changed what emulating a snake means for the better. Roberts looked like a bejeweled reptile in her 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party dress. Now all of the sudden we’re dying to be called a snake if it means we’re wearing this dress.

Roberts wore a beautiful, curve-hugging, nude and gold beaded dress, which is vintage Armani Privé. Its high-neckline and long sleeves kept it classy. But the fit and the nude color made the overall look extremely sexy.

Sexy, yet snake-like. That’s a thing, right?

And while we’re talking about how sexy the dress is, check out the plunging back. The actress wore a simple chain necklace to draw more attention to the back detail.

Roberts walked the Vanity Fair “red carpet” with fiancee, Evan Peters. She attended the Academy Awards solo, so when she showed up with Peters on her arm, our American Horror Story-obsessed hearts were fluttering.

Just look how glittery Roberts’ dress is! We’re blinded and we love it!

Snakeskin is a pattern that has been around for decades, but could subtle snakeskin be the new 2017 spring trend? To be honest, we wouldn’t hate it. A simple faux snakeskin accessory could heat up an everyday warm weather outfit. Or a flowing light-wash snakeskin dress like Emma Roberts’ could be the perfect summer party dress.

Take for instance, this Urban Outfitters Silence + Noise Viper Burnout Chiffon Mini Dress ($59.99).

Emma Roberts played the snake card in the best way possible. We are more than ready to bring some snake into our wardrobes!
