Selena Gomez is back on the MTV VMAs red carpet, and damn, does she look good. For her first appearance at the award show since 2015, the singer chose an aptly statement-making custom gown by Oscar de la Renta. The cherry-red number was made entirely of beaded lace material with small sheer cutouts all over. The design came with a bustier bodice and skirt made of delicate lacy strips that skimmed the floor as she made her grand entrance.
Working with longtime stylist Erin Walsh, Gomez paired her dress with red ankle-strap heels, coordinating floral rings, earrings, and a bracelet, as well as shiny red nails by celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik. Hairstylist Anh Co Tran gave the actor a sleek middle-parted hairstyle, and makeup artist Hung Vanngo used Rare Beauty products to give her a natural makeup look with a subtle brown smoky eye.
It’s sure to be a big night for Gomez at the VMAs. Her and Rema’s collaborative hit “Calm Down” is nominated for three awards, including song of the year, collaboration of the year, and best afrobeats. Seeing as it’s her first time attending the music event in eight years, it’s safe to say fans are rooting for her to scoop up a few moon person trophies.
Read ahead to admire Gomez looking like an absolute bombshell at the VMAs, and then catch up on what Megan Thee Stallion, Olivia Rodrigo, and more attendees wore to the star-studded show.
