While we’ve been keeping a close eye on Selena Gomez’s “Stars Dance” stage style and preference for Forever 21 off stage, it’s been a while since we’ve seen her dressed up. The wait made the outfit she chose for her appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman even more stunning: that crop top, those slits, that braid!

Selly wore a Versus Versace J.W. Anderson Collection skirt and shirt: the shirt may be long-sleeved and the skirt knee-length, but slivers of skin still manage to make an appearance. On the runway, the look was styled with white boots, but Selena opted, instead, for Giuseppe Zanotti gold-embellished pumps.

The focal point of her Letterman look, though, is that high fishtail braid. OMG, we need a tutorial STAT. No number of YouTube how-to videos could help us achieve that look. Selena didn’t braid her hair herself, either, which makes us feel (a little bit) better. She gave props to Marissa Marino, the woman responsible for the intricate ’do, on Instagram. Marissa posted a shot that details how perfectly messy the braid is and highlights the black scrunchie she included, which ties the look up in one neat, ’90s package.

Selena is obv a big fan of braids: she rocked cornrows at the beginning of her “Stars Dance” tour, a braided headband to meet with fans, and now the most major fishtail braid ever. What kind of braid is next? French? Milkmaid? Waterfall? Whichever it is, we hope it’s one that’s easy to recreate!
