Selena Gomez in red Givenchy at the AMAs: hot or boring?

2015 American Music Awards - Arrivals
Here is Selena Gomez, 23, in red metallic Givenchy at the AMAs. On E!’s red carpet they were gushing about her 2011 AMA’s Versace gown, which was amazing and hung on her in all the right places. This dress, on the other hand, was pretty limp and loose. I don’t understand why she chose this gown.

Her performance outfit, which was a combination of large granny panties and a bra (ala Taylor Swift) covered by a sheer sequin catsuit, was much better. (Her outfit underneath was a combination of Kiki de Montparnasse and Suzy Yun and the catsuit was Jolibe. You can see her performance of “Same Old Love” here. She did a great job but I was distracted by her ridiculously long extensions.) People were wondering if Selena and Bieber might do something together at the AMAs due to their big night out Friday but they just did their separate performances.

Chloe Grace Moretz, 18, was in this black Saint Laurent gown that just looks like lingerie. The 90s are coming back, complete with chokers, and as much as I loved that decade some of the fashion should have stayed there. At least she looks like she’s having a good time. Oh and she had those two goofy barrettes in her hair when she was presenting and I found them distracting. What purpose do they serve? They’re Goody metal barrettes!

Nina Dobrev is like a young Kate Beckinsale at this point, always gorgeous but sometimes overdone. She was overdressed in this skirt, top and jacket combination by Zuhair Murad. She looked great and I love to see what she’s wearing, but this is too formal for the AMAs.

Jenny McCarthy looked like a demented elf when she was presenting last night. Her hair was too yellow, she had on those really fug black glasses, and that hairstyle was unflattering to say the least. Her outfit is Versace. It’s all red and her thigh high boots are a totally different hue than that 70s throwback dress. Whatever.

Paula Abdul was onstage with Donnie Wahlberg in honor of him presenting an award to her in the 90s. She looked amazing on the red carpet in this tight little sequin v-neck mini and while presenting she wore a sheer and lace Charbel Zoe Couture gown. Her wig was kind of obvious but Paula Abdul is 53 years old! I want to know her workout routine.

    I did understand and like the idea of Selena’s dress, just not the execution.

  2. QQ says:

    FR FR i’m so Alarmed at the Bad Fashion in this event overall, what is happening!??!

  3. mimif says:

    PAULA! Totally gonna YouTube her all day now.

    • Bridget says:

      Word! Not the best singer, but the songs were pretty damn well put together and with great videos. Even going back to her late- 90s attempt at a comeback is fun.

      Paula is a lifelong dancer. No secret there on how she’s still in shape.

  4. Livealot says:

    Selena looks GREAT! And NInas fit belongs on someone older… But I still like it.

  5. Locke Lamora says:

    She keeps trying to look edgy and sexy and it is just not working for her. The 70s vibe she was wearing in London looked much better. She still can’t sing. Why is she so famous?

    I love Chloe’s whole look – the barrettes are a fun touch. She looks cool, but age appropriate.

    • Bae says:

      Because she dated Justin Bieber and is friends with Taylor Swift – she knows how to lach on to the people of the moment. Oh, and she’s pretty. No talent required.

      • skins says:

        Goes to show you that if the powers that be want you to be a star, you will be a star. I usually like a good girl singer, but she does nothing for me. Can’t even dance, she has the stage presence of a rock. Meh

      • Pandy says:

        Yes, @Bae, I think you’ve hit on it. Cute child star but I don’t think she’s talented enough to keep a career going outside of a cruise ship.

  6. Size Does Matter says:

    Selena’s dress is from Project Runway unconventional materials challenge: bordello draperies and exhaust hoses edition, right?

  7. Ciru says:

    Thanks to Jenny McCarthy, I now know what Daenerys Targaryen would look like if she turned to crystal meth.

    • velourazure says:

      Did Jenny do her own dye job cuz it’s the WORST. If she paid for that she was supremely ripped off.

  8. Nicolette says:

    The dress is a disaster but I love the color. What’s with Paula’s hair? It looks like a cheap wig.

  9. Chaucer says:

    Selena did something to her face, right? Nose job and maybe lips?

  10. Lama Bean says:

    Selena’s face looks….different to me.

    • pinetree13 says:

      AGREED! What has happened to the chipmunk-forever-baby-face???? She looks SO different. Like she aged 10 years overnight (don’t get me wrong, she looks gorgeous but she used to look super young for her age and now she doesn’t).

  11. Lilacflowers says:

    Pretty sure Selena stole that dress from Catherine Zeta Jones who has been wearing it for the past 15 years

  12. Tiffany says:

    Paula, you looking good girl !!!!

    Do not ask my age.

  13. AntiSocialButterfly says:

    Someone should set fire to the world’s collections of tacky sheer dresses… one of the worst trends *ever*.

  14. Bridget says:

    I like the red dress but think it would look better in person.

  15. Mimz says:

    I like Selena’s look from the front, not so much from the back but it’s still OK, I guess….
    I love Nina D, but I agree she’s a bit overdressed and this whole getup makes her look older than she really is.
    I got nothing on Paula except: Great Legs girlfriend!!

  16. serena says:

    Oh no Chloe.. don’t! I don’t mind chokers but that awful dress should really have stayed right where it was.. the 90s!!
    I don’t mind Selena’s dress, she looks gorgeous on the side but it kind of look like a sack on the front, making her a bit shapeless. Her make-up and hair was great thou.

    • pinetree13 says:

      ugh to the black choker which I wore daily at one point…

      …let me just say if the 90′s fashions are back I won’t be participating this time around. I think I literally had that entire outfit down to those snap barrettes. It didn’t work then and it doesn’t work now.

  17. word says:

    I was afraid for Selena when she walked down those stairs.

  18. Castor & Pollux says:

    Selena’s face looks so different to me! Doesn’t she look like a young Monica Belluci? Selena recently revealed she suffers from lupus, right? I’m not an expert, but could her new look be a result from treatment or the disease itself? I think botox & plastic surgery are far more likely, but I thought I’d throw that out there. It makes me livid and extremely sad that beautiful women (both younger and older, I’m looking at you Gwen Stefani) do this to their faces! 99% of the time they look awful – like frozen aliens!!!
