“Kill Them With Kindness”? More like kill them with this look! Selena Gomez joined the VMAs for the first time since 2015 and fans were more than excited to see her attend. However, what is even more exciting is definitely Selena Gomez’s VMAs outfit! Selena Gomez is a highly nominated artist at the MTV VMAs tonight, competing for awards in categories like Song of the Year, Collaboration of the Year, and Best Afrobeats for her song “Calm Down” with Rema (which spoiler alert, she actually won!).

What Is Selena Gomez’s VMAs Outfit?

Gomez wore a stunning Oscar de la Renta gown that had a captivating and dreamy quality. The gown featured strategic cut-outs that exposed some skin, particularly noticeable in the shredded hemline, which emphasized her legs. The dress was bold in revealing her body, opting for a minimal fabric approach. She completed the look with barely-there strappy sandals and minimal jewelry, enhancing the overall sexy aesthetic. This outfit proved that sometimes, a simple dress can allow talent to shine without the need for extravagance.

She wore a floral halter dress with a deep neckline, adorned with a beaded skirt resembling blooming vines. The dress also featured a front slit that revealed her thigh, and she complemented the outfit with matching red heels and earrings. She paired the dress with red Jimmy Choo sandals featuring delicate straps. As for her accessories, she adorned herself with jewelry from Pasquale Bruni, which included earrings, rings, and bracelets.

What About Hair and Makeup?

For her makeup and hair, Selena Gomez went for a minimalist approach. She opted for neutral eye and lip colors that blended well with her overall look. Her hair was worn down, straight, and parted in the middle. With a dress as attention-grabbing as this one, there was no need for additional accessories or embellishments.
