Talk about a change of pace! Earlier tonight, Selena Gomez hit the 2013 Billboard Music Awards red carpet in bright, neon, summery Atelier Versace—a vision of ’90s raver steez updated for the step-and-repeat. For her performance, though, Selly opted for warm metallics and over-the-top glamour, swaddling herself in all-gold-everything from the tippy-top of her fashion bindi to the hem of her shimmering double-slit curtain skirt. Gomez performed her hit single “Come And Get It” in an ensemble we’re affectionately referring to as “Bollywood meets that one Princess Leia outfit courtesy of Jabba The Hut *WINK*, also Barbarella“—point being, girl looked HOTT (two Ts very necessary).

In a sharp contrast to her ethereal music video styling, Sel embraced the power of a well-constructed metal harness for her Billboard performance outfit. With figure-flattering demi cups, super-high slits, waist-sculpting metal caging and matching thick wrist cuffs, this ensemble totally reads “hottest girl in the post-apocalyptic future universe,” and we are SO into it. Selena finished off her stage look with dainty face jewelry, a very healthy tan, and sleek, straight, center-parted hair.
