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.
