Selena Gomez in Versace at the AMAs: such a great red carpet look?

Selena Gomez looked amazing on the red carpet at the AMAs last night. Unfortunately her performance opening the show was a bit muted, to be generous. She did “Lose You To Love Me” and “Look at Her Now,” and it was somewhat off key and not that dynamic. You can see a clip from that on JustJared. Her red carpet look was a bright little Versace and she rocked it though. The Fashion Court tweeted a photo of this on the runway and it’s perfect for Selena. Her hair is so cute like that and her makeup is beautiful.



Lil Nas X won for favorite song rap/hip hop for Old Town Road with Billy Ray Cyrus, but he lost in the other four categories he was nominated in, which was surprising to me. Honestly I didn’t recognize him at first without his cowboy hat. He had on a crazy bright green Christopher John Rogers suit with a zebra velvet tee. (Thanks Fashion Court for that description.) I read on Twitter that he may have chosen this look to be green screen memed in it, which was smart if so.



Billy Porter was in an amazing Thom Browne look that was vaguely papal. They had him introduce Camila Cabello for some reason. I was like “really, does Camila deserve having an almost EGOT introducing her? No.” That cool coral/mod looking hat is by Stephen Jones. His shoes!



Regina King had on Ashi Studio. I love her but this was not my favorite look from her and she often hits it out of the park.


Jameela Jamil was in a strapless zebra print Pamela Roland gown with a pointed bodice. I appreciate that she mixed it up but the way the print extends down the hips is bizarre.

    I looks like they draped fabric over her and were just starting to pin it into shape. That is not a finished dressed. It’s awful. Good color, good idea, but the construction and fit of that dress is a joke, right?

    • naomipaige99 says:

      I agree. It looks very unfinished, and just isn’t a good look on her. Love the color. That’s the only positive thing I can say about it.

    • Va Va Kaboom says:

      It’s also a really poor fit on top and there’s a weirdly off center lump on Selena’s lower stomach. Selena looks amazing, the dress itself… not so much.

      • Jensies says:

        I totally agree. Love the color and concept but there’s no shame in going up a size. She looks uncomfortable, like it’s too tight for her to have decent posture. And the weird pooch over the tummy is no ones friend.

      • minx says:

        I keep staring at that lump…weird. I really love the dress don’t think it needed much to push it into a real win…just a few tweaks.

      • AAA says:

        She has said in the past that the lump is permanent as a result of kidney transplant surgery.

      • Cherbear says:

        The lump is her new transplanted kidney. That’s where they put them, in the lower abdomen, they don’t remove the old kidneys (usually) – they just put the transplanted kidney down in the front.

        It’s her choice to show it off and not hide it. I applaud her- it’s a bold move that I’m sure had many people confused and talking about it- which was probably her goal. Awareness.

        The more people learn about kidney donation and kidney transplant, the better for all of those people with chronic kidney disease who need donor kidneys.

  2. Daisy says:

    At this point I’m going to need a whole docuseries about how Selena managed to be successful while being such an awful singer (and actress). She really scammed people into think she could do this. This performance was just… so bad. She sang off key the whole time, it’s incredible really.

    • Ann says:

      Right? She cannot sing at all. I’m sure she is a lovely person and I appreciate that she’s had some very serious health issues but still, no talent. And I dislike everything about this look, especially the hair. It’s a lot like her singing, trying real hard to be something but falling flat.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      FOR REAL. It’s mind-boggling.

    • minx says:

      She can’t sing or act. She’s cute and went out with Bieber, that’s it.

  3. Audrey says:

    Great color, too tight in the bust.

    • Erinn says:

      I loooove the color. I’m a sucker for flourescenty greens and yellows, so I’m here for hers and Lil Nas X’s looks. I wish the fit on Selena’s had been just a bit better – but it could be her wearing undergarments that aren’t suited for the dress, I guess.

    • Regina D says:

      Agreed. My breasts are hurting, just looking at her!

  4. Eliza says:

    I feel like we’re looking at different pictures? The dress is too small and creates lumps, because its pulling, where she has no lumps. I know you can’t help an off the runway size as an entertainer getting a free outfit but they should have kept looking. I find the 90s bob very unflattering for her face shape but compared to outfit it’s fine.

    • Ainsley7 says:

      She also looks like she’s uncomfortable. Her body language isn’t usually so stiff. I would 100% believe her if she said that something ruined what she was supposed to wear and this was somehow her only other option. It would have been great if the dress had actually fit her.

  5. ME says:

    Selena seemed really nervous during her performance. I just have to say the fashion last night was HORRIBLE. All the men and women I saw were truly dressed like they purposely wanted “worst dressed”. I don’t understand.

  6. Cara says:

    You seriously consider this horribly ill-fitting neon monstrosity to be “great”???????? Her boobs look like they’re about to fall out and everything is wrinkled.

    The fashion posts on this site make more sense now……

  7. Juniperus says:

    It… doesn’t fit her. She’s got the rare complexion to pull that color off but there will be an angry red dent over her boobs as soon as she takes it off

  8. Kath says:

    I like the shape of Jameela’s print, instead of just across the waist. I wish to god she would try another hair style. I get a signature look and all that but it is just so boring!!

  9. Fallon says:

    Great color and love what she was going for, but the dress is way too tight in some areas and too loose in others.

  10. Deanne says:

    My friend made her own prom dress and had this exact same problem in the boob area.She was uncomfortable all night. The dress is a fantastic, flattering colour on her, but fits really poorly. It’s like it was made for a completely different body. I have no idea how she has the career that she does. Listening to her try to sing is painful and she isn’t even a passable acting talent. Who knew that being a cute kid on Barney meant you could have a singing and acting career, without the ability to sing or act.

  11. Spicecake38 says:

    I really like Selena with her hair in this style,and her makeup was very pretty.
    Not a fan of the dress particularly but the color is cute on her.
    She really struggled in her performance,I felt bad for her,she seemed nervous.

    • ME says:

      They still gave her a standing ovation. Yes she seemed really nervous but also Lupus can cause really bad anxiety. I think the audience stood and clapped not because she did a great performance, but because they know about her personal struggles and are proud of her maybe?

  12. Other Renee says:

    She has remained relevant because of all the Justin Bieber drama over the years as well as her health issues. The dress is too tight and pinched. Great color though.

    Billy Porter looks absolutely ridiculous. Regina King looks lovely.

  13. oui oKi says:

    I agree that it’s a great look. its fresh and she just looks amazing. perfect hair cut for her

  14. Jadedone says:

    Alison Stoner was hands down best dressed, she looked amazing!!!

  15. Case says:

    It makes me mad how successful Selena is when there are so many talented unknowns out there. She’d get laughed off of American Idol! How is she still a thing?

    As for the dress…her boobs are cut off right in the middle. It looks super uncomfortable.

    • Sally J. FREEDMAN says:

      When did she audition for American idol? Wasn’t she already on Wizards of Waverly place during the American idol days?

      • Case says:

        She wasn’t on American Idol, I was just saying if she auditioned for something like that, she couldn’t hold a candle to the talented singers on such shows.

    • Sally J. FREEDMAN says:

      My bad… I misread your statement.

  16. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Im sorry but that dress is HIDEOUS. It’s ill-fitting and looks cheap. She didn’t even look comfortable in it. And the volume of that bob is waaay too much for her face.

  17. Chelsey says:

    Such a horrible singer. So weak and boring. She literally sounds like she’s sleeping through the songs.

  18. Elaine Stritch says:

    This is… awful. I do not understand how people have custom pieces AND stylists and leave the house with such ill-fitting clothing….

  19. L says:

    Unsure how you think Selena looks amazing, The poor childs boobs are being squished within an inch of their lives. This is clearly 2 sizes too small and someone owes her an apology. Regina King looks like a million bucks!

  20. shells_bells says:

    I like this color on Selena and her makeup is really pretty, but I HATE the shoes! I’m having flashbacks to the “dyeable” shoes that I used to wear to school dances in the early 90s!

    I like Regina’s dress, but think whatever is happening with her hair is odd.

  21. No Doubt says:

    Neither can sing to save their lives, but man, Selena makes Taylor Swift sound like Whitney Houston. Selena even sounds bad in recorded tracks. It seems that she’s only popular because of who she hangs out with and how she looks?

  22. Soupie says:

    Regina King is gorgeous I wonder why she wears a dress that does her no favors??

  23. Henny In My Hand says:

    Selena is making me uncomfortable. She looked nervous because she knows she can’t sing…..

  24. L4frimaire says:

    The dress isn’t bad but Selena needs to invest in some good shape wear.

  25. Alex says:

    Selina looks like she’s channeling the 90s.
