WERQ: Selena Gomez in Gucci

Posted on February 19, 2013



Selena Gomez attends the premiere of ‘Spring Breakers’ in Paris in a Gucci embellished dress paired with Jimmy Choo heels.

Totally a “Girl, that is SO your dress” moment (which is ironic, because we always get her and Vanessa Hudgens, who had quite the opposite kind of moment recently, mixed up). We can’t picture anyone else WERQing this quite as well as she is. The color looks spectacular on her, it’s just sweet enough to counteract all the skin being shown, she picked the perfect little pair of sandals to punctuate the look, and her face looks great. All in all, we’d say she nailed it. Can’t imagine she wasn’t eyed up and down by every lady-oriented person in the room. And even plenty of the non-lady-oriented.

  • It’s a little too overtly sexy to be “adorable”, IMHO, but she does look amazing in the dress.  The color is fabulous with her dark eyes and hair.

    • Vickiefantastico

      Yeah, the side boob ruins the adorable effect for me, but I agree that she looks great.

      • Judy_J

        I concur.  Side boob is never adorable.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        I agree.  Overall she looks great, except for the side boob and her hair.

  • imperfectlaura

    Right dress on the right girl styled just right.

  • aeb1986

    SO adorable! Cute, sexy, and perfect for the venue. Love it.

  • She’s wearing something awfully sweet for the movie she’s promoting, where she plays an unruly teen who robs to fund her spring break.

  • kschwarting

    The dress is fabulous on her, but the streaky blush/bronzer is distracting.

  • uprightcitizen

    It’s very cute. Of course, it’s easy to keep a slutty dress on the sweet side, when you have a face so cutely proportioned it looks like it was drawn by the Disney animators. But boy, the way the back and sides of that dress are cut, there’s a wardrobe malfunction just waiting to happen if she does anything silly like sit down, or even make a sudden turn. Maybe there’s some boob tape involved.

    • lexilexi

       AND some butt tape… wow… a rear view of what… her thong?

      • DeborahJozayt

        You can practically peer into the abyss and get your fortune read while you’re at it. 

      • Kristin McNamara

        If there’s even one there to view…..

      •  That’s okay though. It’s clearly her telling Justin Bieber to eat his heart out because BAM she’s hot as fuck.


        • formerlyAnon

          I realize this is a completely unfair characterization of Bieber, the person as opposed to Bieber, the professional tween heartthrob. Nonetheless: This is her showing the world why sweet little 14-year-old-looking Selena scared the f*ck out of Justin Bieber.

  • d4divine

    That is how ya do young red carpet. Starlets take notes!

  • i’m guessing there are tons of boobtape involved in keeping that dress in place…

  • GhostOfMisterPamuk

    I know she’s technically an adult, but seeing her in an outfit like this seems a little kiddie porn-ish to me. Also, the hair is crazy town.

    • JasmineAM

      She will always look about 12-14 to me. 

  • Annabelle Archer

    WERQ for real!
    I disagree that her sweetness counters all that skin, this is a very sexy look, but she’s twenty, so I say go for it Lady.

  • CT14

    She looks like a birthday present…and then SIDE BOOB!

    Not so juvenile except from the front.

  • oh la la! that shot from the side is sexy!

  • bertkeeter

    Color great….dress not!

  • mhleta

    Bold, daring yet lady-like. Tough combo to pull off.  She must have been taped into this thing eight ways from Sunday. Otherwise, this is a wardrobe malfunction begging to happen. And I’m sure more than a few “lady-oriented” people were silently begging for it to happen.

    • MilaXX

      What you don’t want to see is the mammary’s laying around like they’re
      waiting for a downtown bus. Here the girls are wide awake and ready to
      spring into action at a moment’s notice. Well done.

      Which is why this works on her but would not work on someone like Heidi Klum.

      • decormaven

        Right you are! Takes a jeune fille to pull off this look. Women with the more mature bosoms need not apply.

  • PastryGoddess

    I love those shoes

  • Imasewsure

    I think this is fun and cute…. I just realized as well that Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens are not the same person… who knew? Huh live and learn

  • jw_ny

    I like it all.  She’s looks sexy and grown up, and yes, kind of adorable.  With those cheeks, she’ll suffer through life, a la Sally Field, always being called cute, adorable 😉

  • capybara_cafe

    Is it plastic? I can’t tell what it’s made out of.

    • Kristin McNamara

      Haha, what? The girl or the dress? 😛

      • capybara_cafe

         This is a totally valid question, LOL.

  • MilaXX

    Hell at this point I’d give her a werq just for wearing shoes that fit, but she mostly gets it for making a dress with that much sideboob still look sweet and innocent.

  • Trisha26

    Christmas ornament. Strongly dislike the gaping sides and back.

  • Anniebet

    Weren’t the 60’s wonderful? Well, except they didn’t have shoes like that, and didn’t show so much skin. The silhouette of the dress from the front is pure 60’s for me. Alas, she’s so baby-faced it’s hard to take her seriously as an up and coming adult. Sadly she looks 14, way too young for this dress – it almost travels into child porn territory.  

  • peachy


  • MerBearStare

    Selena Gomez is a really pretty girl, but she’s so young-looking that it kind of creeps me out when grown-ass men talk about how hot she it. 

    • Yeah, I shame my boyfriend for being attracted to her. 

  • pookiesmom

    She looks cute but my goodness is she wearing a truckload of makeup! (/soundinglikeamomeventhoughI’mlessthanadecadeolderthanher)

    • carolie_king

       I just can’t with that nearly-matching blue all over her eyes.  Very distracting.

  • oldbobbydraper

    looks like my mother’s foil christmas decorations.

  • thesevenendless

    The dress is a little busy up top, but other than that she looks perfect.

    I’ve always felt sympathetic towards Selena, because she has SUCH a babyface.  Most of the time she looks like she’s fourteen, even when she’s made up.  If she was an inhabitant of the real world, she would be carded 24/7. 

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      She’ll be grateful for that baby face as she approaches her forties.

  • too much skin too young too much skin!  but otherwise lovely dress!!

  • n a


  • Janet B


  • DTLAFamilies

    Too much going on around the neck. 

    • BrooklynBomber

      I guess that’s where the missing back fabric went.

  • Zippypie

    I just can’t get into side boob or butt crack and if you were standing next to her, you could see both, though I’m sure the boobies were taped in place, that cavern down to her bum was a free fall.

    I do love the color of the dress and her hair and makeup.  She’s such a pretty young woman.  And it is refreshing to see shoes that actually fit the feet.  But I just can’t give it a WERQ.

  • Monday1900

    This might be the best I’ve ever seen her look–age appropriate and fun yet the back is subtle and sexy and the shoes are perfect.  Nice details in the dress too. 

    • greyhoundgirl

      I would never call that back subtle!  Fun and sexy, yes, subtle, no.  Agree about the details in the dress and I love the silhouette from the front.

  • formerlyAnon

    She’s beautiful in this, but the beaded frou-frou collar keeps it just short of a werq, for me.

    Also, it appears from the photo, even if I posit that the front bodice is firmly taped in place, that the play in the fit and the cut allow anyone she’s standing near to see rather more of her rear than a lady shows in public, if she’s purporting to be “dressed.” Which requires me to lean against a werq.

    [Insert requisite remarks about kids and lawns. A mumbled remark in which one can catch “hell in a handbasket” may also be appropriate.]

    • BrooklynBomber

      More of her front, too, if you’re angled the right way. My first thought was: is she old enough to wear that??!!

      Now I have to go yell at the neighbor’s brats and tell them to keep their damn whiffle balls out of my pansy beds.

  • quiltrx

    Really cute dress from certain angles,  but I just can’t sign off on “you can see my side-boob and my ass-crack if you look down my armhole” design.

  • lrhoff

    That’s circus-like.  It’s a sequined bag.  Not loving it.

  • Cute. The foofaraw at the neck reminds me of Latin American carnival decorations, especially the pageant floats. But the naked loose back bothers me. 

  • kathrineb

    I don’t know why I can’t get behind this. Is the background affecting my judgment?

    • BrooklynBomber

      Could it be the absence of undergarments?

      • formerlyAnon

         I laughed.

      • kathrineb

        haha perhaps.

  • siriuslover

    It’s funny, normally that bit of side boob and that swooping back where you can almost see the butt would bug me, but she looks really great here. Love the blue.

  • I hate this dress. Specifically, the froos going on by the collar. And her make-up should have been dialed back a shade. 

  • Its probably just the posing but she looks like an ass in the photocall.

  • boweryboy

    It’s the first time I’ve seen her dressed in what I consider age appropriate for the runway.  She usually looks like she’s playing dress-up in her Mom’s closet. Although the side butt cleavage action is kinda skanky.

  • MRC210

    I must have those shoes.  Now.

  • Indigo54

    Gotta have those shoes.  I love the color on her.  The dress is cute from the front, not sure about the side view.   The make-up is too much. 


    Persona lbest for her, she is fantastic here!  Good for her!!

  • Tatiana Luján

    I think this dress is overembellished. It belongs to the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.

  • I love it. I’m jealous that I could never wear it, but I love it. And those shoes are fabulous.

  • B_C_J

    Hot, young, sexy, ravishing. She got it right. 

  • mozzer0906

    Sexy but not vulgar.  Fabulous color, hair and makeup and those shoes just nail it.  Brava darling!  

  • That’s a lot of side boob for such a young lady.

  • Susan Crawford

    Dressing this petite little gamine must be like dressing a fashion doll! She looks great in this color – love the neckline and the back that reveals but does not cross the border into Vulgarland. Fresh, natural make-up and a cute, flirty hairstyle – the girl has it going. And somewhere her team is high-fiving and checking out the rack of doll clothing in their playroom for her next outfit.

  • Love it! Such a cute little dress, but with just enough “sexy” thrown in to make it fun. And her legs look a mile long. Go on, girl!

  • m0r0

    Hope she employed the double stick tape on that side boob. 

  • EEKstl

    LOVE, saw some group pic with her and some other miniladystars and this dress so stood out.  She looks great.

  • Alyssa

    Sexy, but not too much so. Great color, great shoes, great makeup. WERQ indeed!

  • libraangel

    Oh my little twinkie-dinky cutie Selena, you look adorable! Oh my, though – I see that you are also a naughty little vixen with that side boob and so-far-open- I- could- put- my- hand-in back.

  • Joyce VG

    Too Latin Dream Girls for me

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Ehhhh, I dunno, guys.  It’s all very “Naughty Tinkerbell” to me.

    • libraangel

      ‘Naughty Tinkerbell’: perfect description!

  • blondie65

    No idea who she is, but wow….nailed it!

    • libraangel

      Disney chick/singer

  • I’m really surprised this is a WERQ because it looks more like a wreq to me. :

  • Kathy_Marlow

    That dress is adorable on her.  She’s 20 and trying to “grow up”, looks amazing. 

  • Snaps UP!

  • the back of the dress is the best part, she’s growing up so fast! *tear
