Selena Gomez in D&G at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball: lovely or too mature?

Here are some photos from last night’s 8th Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC. From what I remember of past Snowflake Balls, they usually get a pretty decent turnout, and there are usually some solid A and B-list celebrities. But this year’s Snowflake Ball does feel a little… basic. I mean, I’m happy to see Selena Gomez and Katy Perry in attendance, but surely UNICEF could have gotten a few more “bigger” names? Anyway, I think my favorite of the night was Selena. She wore Dolce & Gabbana… I really like it. It’s occasion-appropriate, it’s flattering, it’s not trashy. I love her hair here too.

Uma Thurman in Atelier Versace… the dress is okay. I get that Uma just had a baby recently and she still wants to be covered up, plus it’s winter and everything… but I think the thick velvet adds weight. A lot of you have asked if Uma is tweaked too – I don’t think so. I think her face looks different because of the baby weight.

Katy Perry in Naeem Khan – I love the color on her and I think the dress (and cape!) overall is a nice choice for the event. My one complaint: Katy needs to stop parting her hair down the middle. It’s not flattering to her face, and it’s just not a great hairstyle for her.

Kelly Ripa looks… eh. I don’t like this dress on her, and I think she’s tweaking. I’m also getting a weird vibe from Mark. Is he over it?

The Bush girls!! Jenna Bush-Hager looks especially busty. Pregnant boobs maybe? Is Dubya about to become a grandpappy?

Matt Lauer and his wife reunited for the red carpet. Ten bucks says they were fighting by the second course.

    Katy Perry looks like Patti Stanger in these pics…Not a good look.

  2. Summer says:

    Selena’s dress is AMAZING! but yeah too mature for her. God i wish i had that dress…i can really pull it of.

  3. & says:

    Selena Gomez always looks like she’s 12, but I think there’s something about this this look that makes her look more her age. She looks fantastic.

  4. Jennifer says:

    1. Selena Gomez is gorgeous. Love the choice of dress.
    2. Uma Thurman looks great. I personally wouldn’t wear a dress like that but I think it looks good on her.
    3. Katy Perry actually looks her age in that dress rather than some weird-dressed piece of cotton candy. But the hair..just no.
    4. Kelly Ripa..I love the SNL skit they did ‘Kelly and Michael’ HAHA
    5. The Bush twins look like the Bush twins.
    6.Matt Lauer’s wife is saying “I have his balls in my clutch. No really, they are that small. They actually fit in there”

    • N says:

      Oddly enough, my first reaction when I viewed the Bush girl pics was … they remind me of how I always envisioned the evil step sisters in Cinderella.

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      co-sign on everything, I love the D&G dress, Selena ruins it a little bit with her babyface though.

      • littlestar says:

        I think she has bulimia face. Her jaw line and cheeks are always so puffy looking. I know I’ve been saying this forever and am probably the only person who thinks this, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she had bulimia. It’s not baby fat to me, it looks like purging puff.

  5. Colu says:

    Selena looks wonderful. Perfection!

  6. RuddyZooKeeper says:

    Was the photographer standing on a chair? Why the weird angle?

  7. Isa says:

    Selena looks gorgeous. And everyone always says she looks like a baby so I think she hit it just right.
    I’m jealous of that Bush girl’s boobs. She got them all and left none for her poor sister.
    Uma looks pretty and I have never thought she was a beauty. I usually think she looks like a parrot.

  8. Joanna says:

    for some reason, I feel like Selena has an eating disorder. i guess b/c it just seems like she’s too skinny for her height. and kelly, she looked a lot better before she lost all that weight imo.

    • littlestar says:

      I just made the same comment on someone’s post above! I have been saying for a while that I think she might have bulimia. Everyone says she has a baby face because it’s so chubby looking. But how can it just be baby fat when the rest of her body is so thin? To me, it looks like she has bulimia face – that puffy jaw line and cheeks a person gets from too much purging.

      • Jen says:

        You could be right about Selena, or she could just have chipmunk cheeks like my sister. Even when my sister is at her lowest weight, her face is still full.

  9. Gigi says:

    Uma looks amazing! Selena’s dress is nice, but hair not so much

  10. flor says:

    there must be a clause in Disney’s contracts for its starts to learn how to eye fuck the camera and then pretend to be innocent in during interviews. Selena nails it.

  11. Chatcat says:

    I don’t think it’s too mature because that dress would be ugly on any woman of any age. Uma looks great and love love love the deep purple (or is it navy) velvet dress and most appropriate for a winter event. KP looks like Morticia, only Morticia was hotter, the Bush girls look nice, boobs or not they are not “hollywood” so I leave them alone and finally Matt Lauer wears douche so well nothing else would do.

  12. MAP says:

    I think Kelly Ripa admits to using lots and lots of Botox. Or did you mean “tweaking” as something a bit more than Botox?

  13. emmie_a says:

    Selena’s dress is pretty. She looks good.

    I think Uma is tweaking. Baby weight doesn’t make your face look like it has been pulled tight and upwards. She actually looks good and I have never found her to be attractive.

    Kelly Ripa is blah – not good, not bad, but definitely tweaked… but she admits to botox and hair extensions.

    I’ve always thought Jenna Bush was super cute. She does look baby-busty!

  14. PinkG says:

    I have to disagree on Selena’s hair. It looks like she is wearing a poorly attached, untrimmed lace front wig.

  15. SmokeyBlues says:

    Those Buch girls always look like utter trash.

  16. Eleonor says:

    I’m in love with Selena’s dress. Usually D&G don’t do for me, but I love that dress. I would wear it. I would even go on diet, and double my workout routine to wear it.

  17. Effy says:

    Selena look amazing.

  18. LeslieM says:

    I think Selena’s dress is too mature for her. She looks so young. Something more youthful would look nicer on her. She is so pretty.

  19. aston martin says:

    Uh… no. Maybe in another 10 yrs, Selena. Or maybe I’m just shocked because she’s not wearing a skirt so short it almost is illegal, or a strapless number that makes it obvious how young and perky her boobs are (bitch).

    I think Uma looks great in that color, and her body looks awesome after just having a baby. The fabric is too upholstery for me, though.

    I love Kelly Ripa. That photo of she and Mark looks a little candid, and I like that. Her dress is ADORABLE and she works her flat chest in the cutest ways. Makes me, frankly, wish my chest were that flat.

    Katy Perry: Seriously? She looks like a Superhero. Not in a good way.

    Annette Roque looks INCREDIBLE, imo. So throwback with the lips and fur and hair. She OWNS that vintage, Mad Men style here. F*** her a**hole husband. He’s about to get taken down a whooooole lotta notches at The Today Show soon. I hope she doesn’t suffer as a result. She deserves better.

  20. KellyinSeattle says:

    I like the dress on selena; it’s gorgeous. People will always conjecture about her weight because she has such a baby face. I think she needs a new hairdo…
    Matt Lauer’s wife looks like Spongebob in fur; I love Kelly since her All My Children Days, and the Bush girls annoy me. Uma, naah, I don’t get her appeal…

    • deehunny says:

      it really is a beautiful dress.

      matt lauer’s wife looks dumpy in what she is wearing. genuinely surprised she would walk out looking like that and then look at a beautiful dress like Selena’s

  21. cynicalsmirk says:

    I completely agree, Kelly! Annette Roque looks tres, tres chic. Makes everyone else look cheap.

    Selena Gomez always looks like she’s playing dress-up in her big sister’s closet to me, and Katy Perry’s dress is doing something strange to her breasts – makes her look oddly frumpy and matronly.

  22. Carolyn says:

    Selena looks gorgeous. She dumped Bieber. Respect!
