Love It or Hate It? Selena Gomez Sure Piled On the Prints at the ‘Getaway’ Premiere

Selena Gomez sure went crazy with the prints at the 'Getaway' premiere on Monday night. What do you think, Bettys? Love it or hate it?

Selena Gomez Getaway premiere

Selena Gomez may have made a major fashion oops at the VMAs on Sunday—but did she repeat the offense the next day? Let’s take a look!

The former Disney star wore this Vera Wang frock to the LA premiere of her latest flick, Getaway, on Monday night. It’s pretty eye-catching, so naturally it’s making the Internet rounds right now—although not everyone seems to agree on whether it’s fab or a fail. What do you think, Bettys? Love it or hate it?

Weirdly, I… think I kind of love it. I’m a sucker for black, cream, and purple as a color combination, so that’s a big plus right off the bat in my book; even allowing for personal color preference, though, I think she looks sophisticated and grown up (she IS 21 now, after all) without edging into “trashy” territory. Normally I would hate a navel-deep V-neck, but the lace panel stops it from being too ick-tastic; and although there are an awful lot of prints and textures going on here, somehow I think they all just sort of WORK together. Also, the fit is magnificent—I believe the words “like a glove” would not be misplaced. For the curious, she accessorized with a pair of cap-toe Jimmy Choos and Lorraine Schwarrtz jewels.

Whether or not Selena will be as fabulous in the movie, however, remains to be seen. Not going to lie—I’m a little skeptical. I caught the trailer when I went to go see The World’s End last weekend (which, by the way, you should go see. NOW.), and I can’t help but feel that Selena, in an effort to shed her good girl image, has fallen prey to the dreadful beast known as Miscasting. She’s a little too fresh-faced and cherubic for me to buy as a tough, street-wise teen… but maybe that’s just me. Take a look here:

Getaway, which also stars Ethan Hawke and Jon Voigt, hits cinemas this Friday.
