Selena Gomez In Atelier Versace – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Selena Gomez In Atelier Versace - 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Selena Gomez turned up the volume of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada before the performances even started.

After taking a break from Atelier Versace, which she flaunted a good many times earlier this year, the singer-actress went back to the rock-star design house tonight, donning a look from the Spring 2013 collection.

The slit-to-there white gown, ripped through with peek-a-boo illusion paneling, had sexiness in spades. (Perhaps she had a certain Billboard boy—cough, Justin Bieber, cough—in mind.)

But it also packed some fun into its sexy appeal, as it was edged in neon piping that reminded me of glow sticks—couture ones, of course.

Metallic Jimmy Choo ‘Malin’ sandals didn’t bring the same colourful punch as the runway shoe. But, similar to the catwalk model, Selena flaunted smouldering, sooty eyes, which put a darker spin on this Rainbow Brite look and contrasted with her more juvenile bubblegum-pink lippie and messy, long ponytail.

Selena has lately been showing us her all-grown-up sartorial side. Do you like her va-va-voom return to Versace?

    i like it! its fun and flirty.

    This is one of my favorite looks of hers ever. The neon pops beautifully against the white and the white works wi her skin the and the ponytail was the perfect choice as with the shoes. Overall she looks fresh and vibrant.

    I don’t like this look one bit. The dress is super tacky, imo, with the revealing sheer inserts and high slit, and I’m not a fan of the neon glow stick accents. Also, her hair looks fried and her makeup is too much.

    Theres something that feels very 90’s britney about this. I can’t decide wether I like it or not. I do have to say that I love that it’s not predictable and there is something fun about it…still on the fence though!

    No, for the dress.

  6. Moxie May 20, 2013 at 03:55 #

    Why do brunettes feel the need to lighten their hair color? Her hair was gorgeous the way it was.

    The dress is bordering on tacky. The shoes are nice, but not with this look.

    I hate that i love this girl. Really. How perfect and unpredictable is this dress ! The only thing i’d change is that hair. What a let down.

  8. Marybeth May 20, 2013 at 01:58 #

    I’m on the fence about this one. The dress has a nice California vibe that works for her. The back and the front illusion panel, however, come across as contrived and a bit tacky.
    And I hate her shoe choice. Green or pink or yellow would be much better.

  9. Prudence May 20, 2013 at 01:40 #

    she is not sexy enough for a dress like this.

  10. Alicat May 20, 2013 at 01:33 #

    This is youthful and fun. I love it from the front but the back is a bit over the top.

    • Alicat May 20, 2013 at 01:34 #

      Just want to add that the makeup is overdone. She is such a fresh faced, pretty girl. Caked on makeup detracts from this.

  11. justme May 20, 2013 at 01:30 #

    The dress is a bizarre mess to begin with so I can’t fault Selena for not pulling it off. Her makeup is another issue though. The foundation and concealer are caked on, who did that to her?

      +2 yeah there is something very wrong about this dress. Shame about the make up

  12. Melrose May 20, 2013 at 01:25 #

    YES! Luv her in Versace, and her hot streak continues with this! The colors are so youthful, fun and perfect for her!

  13. Kathy May 20, 2013 at 01:10 #

    This dress was made for someone like Rihanna. Selena doesn’t have the maturity to wear it. Maybe in a few years when she’s fully grown out of her Disney image, she’ll be able to wear revealing things more convincingly. I see this as being more of a summertime look than a late-spring one, though, because of the bright pops of color.

  14. Alison May 20, 2013 at 01:09 #

    Like Nate I think she lacks fierceness and mature sex appeal to rock this gown, it makes her look like she is trying too hard, and her baby face with that awful hair doesn’t help her at all.

    This look is tacky- or at least for me.

  15. Emma May 20, 2013 at 01:03 #

    LIKE A LOT! Sexy, Youth and appropriate for the event.

  16. DorianGray May 20, 2013 at 00:54 #

    One of my favourite Atelier Versace dress but not on her. I think that Selena should dress Versus or Versace because she hasn’t got the right attitude to wear Atelier, at least not yet. Awful hair.

  17. serena May 20, 2013 at 00:52 #

    Not great at all. Her makeup is SO HEAVY. The length feels wrong for the event too – something knee length would have been much better.

  18. John May 20, 2013 at 00:51 #

    hate her hair (color and style), hate the shoes. The dress is nothing to go crazy about, verges on tacky to be honest. I don’t think she can work a dress like this, she doesn’t have the right attitude.

    • Yeliz May 20, 2013 at 08:44 #

      Agreed on all points.

      • Magdalena. May 20, 2013 at 19:25 #

        + 1000

  19. Christine May 20, 2013 at 00:45 #

    Very sexy! I like this apart from the shoes.

  20. Nat May 20, 2013 at 00:44 #

    She looks like J.lo on her old not very far away tacky days. This girl never need a hair makeover or something bc her hair always look awful.

  21. Cass May 20, 2013 at 00:40 #

    Wow – fun, youthful and sexy all at the same time! Love it!

    Tacky but I guess it´s fine for the event, wish she had added a metallic cuff to finish the look, her arms are too bare, and she lacks fiercenss and mature sex appeal to rock this gown, comes across as try-hard.

    OMG, FC you’re such a workhorse! When do you sleep? Your work ethics inspire me!

    • Francesca May 20, 2013 at 01:40 #

      As you can see, the Billboards are being covered by Rachel Watkins, not the “original” FC of this blog, Catherine Kallon. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that she is a workhorse, who we can be very grateful for on this blog!

      ON topic, I think Selena looks sexy! She definitely pulls it of for me.

      • Catherine Kallon May 20, 2013 at 02:59 #

        thanks for the appreciation ladies.

        We are working hard to ensure both Cannes and the Billboard Awards are covered today.

    • kane May 20, 2013 at 02:03 #

      +1, kudos, FC!

      As for the dress: no thanks.
