She was one of the stand-out, and somewhat understated, fashion successes of the Met Gala.

But Emma Roberts came back to Earth with a bump on Tuesday as she slipped into her normal everyday clothes.

The actress was spotted enjoying an outing in Soho, New York just hours after one of the biggest nights in fashion.

Gown was the glitz and glamour, and in its place were a comfy and reliable T-shirt and jeans combo.

The 24-year-old then hit the shops while her unimpressed boyfriend Evan Peters skulked behind her.

Her downplayed appearance was a world away from her stunning red carpet turn on Monday night.

Emma was one of the multitude of superstars who flocked to the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute to take part in one of the most extravagant events in the US entertainment world.

While the likes of Rihanna, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian raised eyebrows with their over-the-top and revealing creations, Emma stuck to simple, chic and sophisticated. 

Her slinky, green Ralph Lauren silk gown was one of the cleanest silhouettes of the evening and suited her slender figure and porcelain complexion to perfection.

However, she did suffer one blip while trying to stick to the night's theme - China: Through the Looking Glass - she was slammed on Twitter for putting chopsticks in her styled hair.

The actress shared a series of snaps as she prepared for the big bash, but faced an instant backlash for making a cultural faux pas. 

Followers were keen to point out that putting the utensils in their hair can mean a death in the family or as a sign of dishonour.

Emma quickly rectified her gaffe and removed the items, leaving her hair in a stylish bun.
