Embroidered with thousands of scarlet bugle beads, the Oscar de la Renta hand beaded scarlet sheer dress was enhanced with a climbing floral fringe which added drama to Selena’s stylish look. The bugle beads sparkled under the lights on stage, when she and Rema went to accept the award. Unique and arty just like the singing goddess, the intricate bead work and floral patterns blended beautifully and complemented Selena to the T.
Looking like art in motion, Selena Gomez was styled by celebrity stylist Erin Walsh. She accessorised with jewellery from Pasquale Bruni’s Giardini Segreti collection. The diamond rings and earrings set in floral designs are inspired by the secret gardens of Milan. A tribute to the female worlds that are full of passion, the jewels are handmade in Italy with artisanal techniques. The jewellery added sparkle to Selena’s overall look.
Keeping it fresh and minimal, Selena’s makeup was done by celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo. Letting her hair breathe the success she deserves, her hair was styled by celebrity hair stylist Anh Co Tran. Keeping it glazed and fabulous, Selena’s golden glazed fire nail art was done by Tom Bachik. Selena completed her look with a pair of strappy red heels from Jimmy Choo.
