I think we can ALL agree that Selena Gomez hit a fashion home run at the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday, ruling the red carpet and stage in not just one, but two gorgeous traffic-stopping ensembles. In addition to that shimmery gold Julien MacDonald minidress she rocked during the pre-show, Sel heated things up big time for her sizzling performance of her new single “Come and Get It” in a Bollywood-inspired Marco and Marco number. But what’s the real story behind this pair of eye-popping looks?! InStyle got the scoop from Selena’s stylist herself, Basia Richard. According to Richard, that glitzy red carpet ensemble was originally intended for the performance (!), but “Selena fell so in love with this dress that it was instantly her first choice for the carpet.” In the end, though, Sel went with a fiery red Marco and Marco piece that Richard customized with Swarovski crystals and gold details, which, heads up, we’ll see again in an upcoming video!
Yep, it’s definitely not the last time we’ll be spotting the bold embellished dress, and we’ve got a feeling there’s lots more sultry Selena to come on her 2013 Stars Dance tour. Let’s be real: that epic gold collar she’s flaunting in the announcement must ONLY be the beginning. Will Sel’s Movie Awards Bollywood theme continue on the road? Will she only dance barefoot? And what about those bindis? “That was her makeup artist, Karan Mitchell’s idea,” Richard said, “We loved it so much everyone on the team was wearing a different color backstage!” Nobody knows for sure just yet, but this sparkly detail was so popular at the Movie Awards, we reeeeally hope it makes a repeat appearance on tour.
