Style seems to run in some families and Julia and Emma Roberts have proven this is the case as they appeared together at a film premiere.

The aunt and niece both attended the premiere of the film Jesus Henry Christ and chose to wear monochrome outfits.

Executive producer of the movie Julia went for a chic look with a black dress with contrasting white cuffs and a Peter Pan collar for the first showing of the film, which follows a boy’s search to find his father.

She kept her accessories simple by deciding against wearing any statement pieces that would detract from the elegant look of her outfit.

Emma Roberts meanwhile put together a stylish modern outfit, with a pair of black skinny jeans and a matching blazer offset by a plain white T-shirt.

The 21-year-old brought some colour to the look by adding a silver ladies designer watch on her left wrist and rings on her right hand.
