Selena Gomez unexpectedly visited the 2023 MTV VMA red carpet just when we all believed it was ending. The stunning sequined outfit draped in a detailed pattern of leaves and flowers made the red carpet arrivals worthwhile for the Emmy-nominated singer, actor, campaigner, beauty entrepreneur, and aspiring culinary expert.
Oscar de la Renta inspired Gomez’s take on the Hollywood standard of nude attire. The outfit featured a delicate halter neckline adorned with the same strips of flowers and blooms as her dress and an asymmetrical hem with strings of florals reminiscent of a car wash. With her hair brushed back and straight, the high slit was the ideal way to showcase her red, strappy shoes. Her stunning diamond earrings and understated, low-key glitz completed the ensemble.
For her duet with Rema, “Calm Down,” Gomez is nominated this year in the Song of the Year category. The song is nominated for Best Afrobeats and Best Collaboration as well. Since 2015, Selena has not attended the VMAs.
In February, Rema told Pitchfork, “‘Calm Down’ is about the events that led me to find love at the time.” “I felt like taking a chance when I noticed a female who stood out from the other girls at a party. We spoke and danced, but her companions prevented me from getting any closer, which destroyed the mood. Nevertheless, when they left, we kept in touch and clicked.
