Selena Gomez in shapeless Coach at the Met Gala: one of the worst looks?

Embed from Getty Images
Selena Gomez is a Coach brand ambassador and while I would feel sorry for her for having to wear this awful dress, she’s making a reported $10 million dollars on that contract. I would show up naked to something for $100k. This has no support in the bust area, the bottom is practically see through and I wish that the trend of tiered sheer ruffled gowns would die out already. Plus her styling is weird, she looks smeary. On E! they talked about Selena’s dedication to Christianity, and how this dress was in honor of Queen Esther from the Bible. I don’t remember that story at all, but she was a heroine who saved the Jewish people according to my two minutes of Googling.



Keri Russell didn’t fare as poorly in white Chanel. This looks comfortable without being fug and I like the flapper elements on this dress. It’s not really on theme apart from the fact that it’s white and gold.

Sarah Paulson was in Prada and while she can usually pull off their weirdest of looks this just made me cringe. Maybe it wouldn’t be as bad without the dippy bow at the neck. I guess they were going for angelic, but there’s too much going on with the intricate beading on this dress.

Uma Thurman just did a white off-the shoulder Gabriela Hearst column gown with cross and medallion jewelry for the theme. I like this, it’s sophisticated and crisp and she looks like she’s having fun.

    If you didn’t tell me that was Selena I wouldn’t have identified her. What on earth did the make-up artist do to her?!

    • Char says:

      She looks so bad! The hair, the tan, the make up, the dress, it’s all wrong.

    • Alyce says:


      The dress is bad but the make up is worse. She is a very cute girl and they made her look like she got up from a bout with the flu, threw on the nearest sheer curtain, and showed up at the gala.

    • Morning Coffee says:

      Is it me or does she look pregnant? I’ve never noticed her boobs that big before. Or is it just the lack of shape in the gown? I kind of see the Esther reference in it.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        I’m thinking it’s probably weight gain +/- fluid retention from steroids for treating her lupus.

      • Spicecake38 says:

        Agreeing with notsosocialbutterfly-this looks like prednisone puffiness,I know the look well as I sport it often.Selena is still a beautiful young woman,just not her most flattering look.

  2. JoyBells says:

    Selena’s make up is terrible!

  3. minx says:

    Selena looks underwhelmed to be wearing that mess. Understandable.

    • midigo says:

      I am sure she got paid A LOT to wear that thing. There’s no other explanation for this self-inflicted ordeal.

  4. Lexter says:

    On her tiny frame, Selena’s bust looks so plentiful!

    • anika says:

      I think it makes her look a bit pregnant!

      • Betsy says:

        That’s what I thought. But maybe it’s just weight gain? Or maybe it’s just a bad dress with a terrible fit!

      • No Doubtful says:

        I agree, I wonder if she’s expecting?

      • kittyhawk says:

        Totally preggers boobs! There was a blind a while ago about her and Katy Perry having a bun in the oven at the same time with the same man.

      • Jag says:

        kittyhawk, that blind was for April Fool’s Day.

        She does look pregnant in that dress, though.

    • phaedra says:

      Save your back: support your girls, Selena!

    • Kitten says:

      When did she get a boob job? Don’t pay much attention to her so I guess I just missed it.

      But yeah, this dress, her makeup, her hair..EVERYTHING just so damn unflattering.

      • MagicalDay says:

        Yes during the on again off again Beiber heart break, Selena got implants. Now that she’s gained weight, her breasts make her whole frame kind of Zoftig.

  5. Jay says:

    She obviously has a great body but she looks 75lbs overweight in that monstrosity. And her makeup looks greasy and smeared. WHY.

  6. Lucy2 says:

    Selena normally is very pretty but her stylist and makeup artist did her wrong here.
    Coach should stick to making bags.

  7. phaedra says:

    Her makeup makes her look like my Nana stepping out of a hot tub. Probably not the look she was going for. The dress does her no justice either. She is so beautiful but you’d never know it.

  8. wheneight says:

    Selena looks miserable

    • lautie says:

      and trapped!……i agree! her expressions in those photos say it all

    • Vizia says:

      I was wondering if she was actually feeling ill–her recent medical issues tend to have long-term effects.

  9. Lindy says:

    These are the worst dresses

  10. monette says:

    Worst dressed 2 years in a row thanks to Coach.
    Last year’s was cheap looking and not on theme, but at least it didn’t make her look fat.
    I don’t think I could do this to myself for all the money in the world.

  11. Becks says:

    Uma looks awesome. I think Keri looks great too, but I don’t love the drawstring around the waist.

    Poor Selena.

  12. tracking says:

    Selena is a hot mess. I dislike Kerri’s look even more, looks like she’s about to head to the dining room on a cruise.

  13. Nicole says:

    Geez Selena’s look…the dress is awful. Truly fug. The makeup looks like someone smeared glitter and bronzer all over her face. Yikes
    The rest of the looks are boring. Uma looks the best in this one

    • Danielle says:

      Selenas dress may have been not so awful if her hair and makeup had been better. Her makeup makes her look like she has the flu.

  14. KLO says:

    Umas dress and necklace are to die for. I honestly hate her hairdo though. What the heck is this birds nest!? Her hair usually looks nice.

    I love love love Selenas look from the side and back. I even kind of “get” her makeup, it makes her look like a porcelain angel (quite literally). The boob are ruins it for me. what the heck is this?

    • Kitten says:

      Really? I LOVE her hair do. That’s my favorite part of her whole look.

      • KLO says:

        @Kitten I get it why someone would like the hairdo. It IS artsy and goes with the style.
        It`s just that I “get it”, like what they were trying to do here, but I don`t really “like it”, if you know what I mean.
        I can see where they were going but they did not quite arrive in my eyes.

      • BILLYPILGRIM says:

        I love Uma’s hairs too! Makes her look.

        Selena, obviously, has no real friends or they would have shut that mess down before she ventured a toe out the door.

        Love Keri and Mathew but hate her dress. It’s giving me a Dionne Warwick “Solid Gold” flashback.
        (I think Ms. Warwick hosted that show. If she didn’t she shoulda.)


      • Trashaddict says:

        The first thing I noticed was the hairdo. Really original. I love it!

  15. Lala says:

    Selena is a glorious looking young woman…HOWEVA…her styling over the last several months has been…SO CONFUSING! And this look…kind of made me gasp! I’m buying what Sarah is selling with that outfit…I’m more interested in Uma’s upsweep than her gown…Keri is such a beautiful woman…her makeup/dress/hair does her NO justice!

    • AuroraBorealis says:

      Same Lala, same! Uma’s hair is interesting compared to her gown which is kind of meh. I thought I was the only one who actually preferred Sarah Paulson’s look over Uma’s. I love Selena too but her styling has been I dont know, almost sloppy, as of late?

  16. FLORC says:

    The look is awful. And I love the Story of Esther. It’s messed up too.
    To follow a veggie takes version (because the actual story is nc17) a young virgin child/girl is picked among many to make the king a sandwich. She befriends the older ladies/chefs to learn how the king prefers his sandwiches. And she becomes his favorite young cook. Gaining favor she uses the leverage to benefit her people.

    I’m not seeing any connection between this look at that story At All.

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      Agreed, but Esther was also pretty bad-ass because she didn’t have to reveal herself as Jewish, but did in order to use her position of favor to free her people (by also getting the evil advisor hung on the gallows he’d had erected to kill Jews). I’m not really seeing that story here…

      • FLORC says:

        Her whole strategy was so strong I agree. She didn’t have to ever reveal herself.
        And this Selena dress… nothing in it says Esther. And it’s irritating.

  17. LT says:

    I don’t understand what this has to with Queen Esther?

    I think Keri’s dress evokes a monk’s habit (cloak?).

  18. rm877 says:

    I’d say that Keri Russel is doing an homage to an altar server’s robes with her dress. I was raised in a very Catholic family-Catholic school for 12 years, altar server for 3 years. I wore those robes a lot, and that’s what I’m getting from her. Also, Matthew Rhys is a gorgeous man. Just needed to add that.

    • AnneC says:

      Keri’s character in the Americans is so awful this season that I have a hard time separating her from Elizabeth especially with Phillip (Matthew Rhys) standing next to her. Anyway she’s amazing and I can’t wait to see how the show ends. And they both look great here.

      • buckley says:

        I watched Keri do an interview on one of the late shows, Colbert I think, she was so bubbly. I could not believe that was Elizabeth Jennings. Specially THIS season’s Elizabeth.
        She’s phenomenal.

  19. Anastasia says:

    That dress makes it look like her bra size is 34 Long.

    • NA nayberhoood says:

      and styling by the 24-hour-liquor store- you can see she is OUT OF IT-none of this kidney/lupus recovery bull. she’s locked and LOADED! dont get drunk kids-it looks like sh*t!

  20. Carmen says:

    I missed seeing Uma last night, she looked good overall.

    Selena looked ghastly.

  21. Dee says:

    Queen Esther is badass! She’s basically the meaning behind the Jewish holiday Purim. She was a Jewish girl who married the Persian King, Achasverosh after he banished his first wife, Vashti, for not listening to him. His side kick basically, Haman, hated Jews (because of an altercation with Esther’s cousin Mordechai) and wanted them all exiled. Esther appeared before the King (risking her life essentially because she wasn’t allowed to approach him without being summoned). Basically she planned a banquet, invited the King and Haman, and at the banquet revealed that she too was Jewish, and if he exiles the Jews, she would have to leave too, and how this was all a ploy by Haman because of the fight he had with Mordechai because he didn’t bow to him. The King ordered Haman to be hanged, and the honor of his position was bestowed upon Mordechai, and the Jews were able to remain in Persia.

  22. Abby says:

    oh my goodness Selena’s look is terrible! She is so lovely but this is like lingerie that I would put back immediately. 🙁

    I thought Keri Russell was Kristin Wiig at first glance. Barely recognized her!

  23. Melanie says:

    I wouldn’t usually comment, but Selena looks awful. Her dress is unflattering and her makeup is terrible. That lipstick is a nope. Even her hair is bad.

  24. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I need Uma’s jewelry.

  25. Pandy says:

    For everyone wondering about the Esther comparison -Esther was big on bad hair and make up and had a penchant for prayerie/prairie FUG.

  26. tealily says:

    Keri Russell looks cute, but way underdressed. She looks like she should be out yachting.

  27. what's inside says:

    Queen Esther would not have been caught dead wearing this mess that Selena has on. Also she looks puffy? I wonder if she is having problems with her transplant.

  28. Shark Bait says:

    Ok so I can see Lena Dunham in the background, but also I don’t think you guys featured her at all. I find that hilarious because I haven’t seen her in any coverage or slide shows, and I only knew she was there because she posted pictures of herself on Twitter.
    I’m hoping that means people are starting to ignore her.
    Selena looks terrible and tired and/or strung out.

  29. otaku fairy says:

    Minus the weird little ruffle at the waist, the hairstyle, and some of the eye make-up, Selena would have looked great. This could have been really pretty. None of these outfits are particularly good. Keri Russel’s is ok.

  30. Ivy says:

    Selena looks like she’s on every drug under the sun

  31. Lilith says:

    Selena.. the makeup is BAD.. what happened girl?

  32. Elaine says:

    Is it just me or does Selena LOOK LIKE the biebs in these pictures (first one especially)? Ok… just me 😂

  33. eeeeetrainnnn says:

    Serena looked so droopy snoopy and SAD…it bummed me out.

  34. Anare says:

    I don’t think Selena wanted to be there. She did her job then bolted, literally. That dress was too big on her and just a fugly mess. The makeup is the real crime. WTF? Oh well, for that kind of money I’d show up in whatever crap they sent. When there’s nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile…

  35. Pandakeeper says:

    Sarah Paulson is such an attractive woman and sooo talented! She is so captivating on film, but for some reason just doesn’t photograph all that well. Her face always seems to look long and angular. Almost like SJP.

    But I could watch her act in anything!
