What Will Selena Gomez Wear For Her 2013 MTV Movie Awards Performance?

Have you HEARD? Selena Gomez is performing at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 14! Not only will this mark Sel’s first musical performance in honor of the Golden Popcorn, it’ll also be the first televised performance of her new forthcoming single, “Come & Get It,” the debut track from Miss Gomez’s new album, set to be released this summer. After so many months of following Selena (the actress) making the press rounds for Spring Breakers, seeing her get back into the role of Selena (the singer) is guaranteed to be a really fun change of pace. Even if it might get a little confusing. Sel has said several times that she has a kind of split style personality, opting for one kind of look when she does film and a different look when she does music. So then what happens when she performs music at an awards show for FILMS?!?? We’ll see for ourselves come April 14, but until then, we’re speculating based on some trends we’ve noticed from her history of performance ensembles.

SHOW-STOPPING CURTAIN SKIRTS

We’re not 100% positive that “curtain skirts” is the scientific name for this look, but for the better part of 2012, Selena was almost always wearing some iteration of this silhouette on stage. The number is a teeny tiny base outfit (usually extreme hot pants or a very dangerous mini) with a chiffon-type floor-length skirt wrapped about 3/4 of the way around, leaving a kind of window for Selena’s spec-TAC-ular legs. It’s a kind of best-of-both-worlds outfit that provides all the gam-glorifying of a bodysuit and all the drama of an ethereal gown.

FLOATY MULLET DRESSES

Capitalizing on a similar idea as the “curtain skirt” (patent pending, y’all—step off our dictionary game), Selena has been known to rock her fair share of mullet dresses. Mini in the front, maxi in the back, the mullet dress looks great on stage, especially when used in combination with dry ice fog machines, and again, Sel gets to flaunt her bananas flawless legs. Somebody call up Tina Turner and help this girl get them insured!

ITSY BITSY SHORT SHORTS

There are also times when Selena just goes all IDGAF about the skirt drama and saddles up in a pair of short shorts. They often come in the form of a long-sleeved romper ENCRUSTED with sequins. They’re also often balanced with a pair of knee-high boots—all the better run around the stage and pump up the crowd. She’s been known to work a pair of tailored shorts with a feminine top, and while that IS the very same steez she showed up wearing to the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, we wouldn’t bet on her going with a look with THAT much IRL wearability for such a milestone performance.

A-LINE COCKTAIL FROCKS

This stage style is considerably more rare for Selly (in our dreams, sometimes she lets us call her that), but it’s honestly one of our favorite. There’s something very retro, pin-up girl-y about Selena’s performance mannerisms combined with her in a full, circle skirt. Or maybe it’s just that faux bob she does with her hair for those outfits. Either way, it’d be a curveball but certainly a welcome one if she went for a look like this for the Movie Awards.

ALL-WHITE WITH PANTS

Even MORE unexpected would be an outfit with PANTS. So far, Sel has only performed in trousers when her outfit is head-to-toe immaculate white (also, one time they were elastic ankle GENIE pants with gigantic slits down the outside seams), but as a certain Canadian popstar says, “Never Say Never.” *shrugs*

SPARKLY LITTLE THINGS

There’s just one aspect of Selena’s performance look that we’re, like, 85% sure about: it. will. be. sparkly. It’s the one constant throughout Sel’s entire history of stage ensembles. Whether it’s a shimmering beaded fringe skirt set under a rhinestone and sequin encrusted bustier OR it’s a simple pop of shine by way of a skinny metallic belted waist, we would definitely put money on Selena catching, reflecting, and refracting light at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
