    Hate the illusion netting, from a distance the cutout line looks sloppy and hastily-done, I don’t think the shoes were the best choice.

    But I’m not mad at the direction this was headed in. It’s Billboard-appropriate and calls back to her Spraang Braaake movie.

  • werika

    This is so cracktastic! Is she going to a rave, with an all white dress code? Her glow sticks will make it easier for her PR people to find her as she dances the night away.

  • Girl! Zip it back up! Pretend that illusion netting isn’t there and close up your dress, young lady.

  • Patricia Gillett

    I am so tired of this dress. I feel like six different designers have done a version of it.

  • Diego!

    GURL! I love everything here except her hair. But I have to admit, she looks stunning!

  • Lily

    It’s appropriate for the venue and doesn’t look terrible on her.

  • jetpackdino

    Gummy worms! Yum!

  • Amy909

    I can’t stand those long nails, especially on young stars like her and Rihanna. Zendaya on Dancing on the Stars likes to rock them too, and it’s so distracting!! Otherwise the dress is venue appropriate. There aren’t many places you could wear that dress!

    • Perhaps a rave on Neptune?

      • random_poster

        Ooooh…I’d want to attend as a fly on the wall!

    • At least they aren’t pointy claws.

  • Insidiously

    I think for the venue, this is fine. What I don’t think is fine is the rather horrible hair. It looks so unkempt and un-fitting to her coloring. In addition, the “Road to My Vagina” neckline looks plain strange.

    Overall meh.

    ALTHOUGH, bitter kittens, you will find it delicious that during Justin Beiber’s performance Miss Thing over here pointedly did not stand and clap. She also exchanged bitcheries with Taylor Swift. It was hilarious, because her entire row sat with her.

    • imspinningaround

      You did see Taylor Swift’s backstage yuck face gif, yes?

      • Insidiously

        YES!!!!!! I did!!!

        You know, I truly dislike T. Swift, but at that moment I literally loved her.

        I was just like “You better work that Dynasty bitch-face girl!”

    • AND did you see the gif of Taylor making a disgusted face when Beibs kissed Selina’s cheek?

    • l_c_ann

      Thank you for watching and reporting so some of us wouldn’t have to. Really.

      • Insidiously

        Of course! I do it for the people 🙂

    • PastryGoddess

      The question is whether that road is paved with good intentions

  • Jeff Warhurst

    Even she can’t make this dress work. It’s hideous.

  • joancarol

    The dress looks like she went through a Star Trek transporter and got scrambled on re-materialization.

  • Naked AND dumb. And dear god those are aging porn star nails.

  • aeb1986

    i agree. i have some quibbles with the dress but she looks gorgeous overall

  • The dress looks cheap and poorly made. Her makeup is pretty, and I like the shoes.

  • Hate it, hate it, hate it. The word that comes to mind is SLOPPY. It look like a deconstructed suitcase and glowsticks. I’ve got nothing against Selena; she’s a cute girl and she could do better.

  • Rand Ortega

    A hit or a drink from 1 of those neon tubes? Someone beat her to it then did her hair.

  • TheAmericaness

    I kind of like the dress. I didn’t expect to when I saw the thumbnail, but I like it. That being said, the side shot with those shoes… oh no. The illusion netting bunches wrong and that kind of shiny shoe like that makes her look like she’s sportin’ a size 13 shoe and no girl wants to look like that, even if she is. Bad combo.

  • Cute/edgy dress (would have been great for the Met Gala – in fact, I don’t know why there wasn’t more Versace) but I hate that spinning-class hair. And for some reason the shoes aren’t working for me.

  • I hate this dress. It does absolutely nothing. It just looks lazy. And those nails….shudder….

  • Paigealicious

    Hate the fried hair. And I’m not sure if she actually is short or not, but even with those heels she seems too short for the dress.

  • maggiemaybe

    This whole hooker-goes-to-a-rave look is bumming me out. Shoes are cute though.

  • disqus_uaOApDZDpF

    That face is the sound of someone realizing: “I have made a terrible mistake.”

  • Molly

    You beat me to it!

  • Like other Bitter Kittens, I’m finding the illusion netting problematic. I like the shoes, but there are better choices for that dress. I actually like the dress, aside from the poorly done netting, especially for the venue. Going now to look up the Taylor Swift “yuck face.”

    • PastryGoddess

      There is a GIF…it is hilarious

      • Mismarker

        It is giving me life. My but there’s is a lot of nasty under T-Dog’s “little ole me?” routine.

        • PastryGoddess

          The nasty has always been there. But I can overlook that for good old fashioned bitch face

  • Introspective

    me too! exposed zippers, illusion netting, slits up to here and down to there, and side boob and ass all need to just go the fuck away for the next 10 seasons.

    ETA: granny panties. because of shit like what jennifer morrison wore.

  • RinPauler

    one of the ugly creations from Versace.

  • ugly dress, dull styling

  • I’m sorry honey, but no. Just no. She’s too young and too fresh faced to be wearing floor length white at the BBMAs. This was the place for sexy and edgy and this dress is just sad and goofy.

  • Does baby girl have a thumb print bruise on her arm? I sincerely hope not!

    • siriuslover

      I thought the same thing. 🙁

  • MilaXX

    I think this dress needs to be on someone with a darker skintone and I hate the Lee’s press on nails she’s wearing. The total look combined looks somehow old on her like this is something Raquel Welch would have worn 29 years ago.

  • unbornfawn

    The only way I’ll sign off on this dress is, if the green, pink and yellow trim coils glow in the dark.

    • Donna Tabor

      They sure look like those glow necklaces, don’t they?

      • unbornfawn


  • I had that Barbie in 1992!

  • Love it. Perfect pop star look – sex appeal, tackiness and swagger. But the nails truly are terrible.

  • that illusion netting is really problematic. she still looks cute though.

  • sekushinonyanko

    She’s very tan…

  • Deedles

    …aspiring graduate of the JLo Training Academy.

  • This dress probably looked so good on paper. In execution it is a disaster. Obviously.

  • golden_valley

    Too old for you darlin’

  • jjfg

    Meh. Doesn’t fit her all that well, and the hair…

  • PastryGoddess

    I’m giving it a Yes. She’s 19 or 20 with an amazing bod and she’s wearing at a music awards show. Now if this were the Oscars I’d be giving side-eye. But here…why not

    • Donna Tabor

      Excellent reasoning.

  • crash1212

    I like what’s going on from the neck up and the shoes. Everything in between is very unfortunate and ill fitting. Go home and start over.

  • kittenwithaquip

    Selena Gomez, wearing the latest in cutting-edge tampon packaging. Have a zippy period!

  • I’m just shocked at how cheap this “couture” dress looks. I would expect her answer to “Who are your wearing?” to be “Gosh, I’m really not sure; the dress I was gonna wear got lost, so I picked this up for $50 in a mall on the way over here”.

  • MoHub

    And there’s so much going on, it’s a total Frankendress.

    • With actual zippers, even.

      • MoHub

        Well, that would make it a Young Frankendress.

  • Jecca2244

    om those nails! horror!

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    That’s what I thought! “Is she covered with glow sticks?”

    • NC_Meg

      Ditto! It looks like she bent glow sticks around her neck and arm pits.

  • RussellH88

    I just can’t with this.

    *makes time out motion with hands* Jane, no, absolutely not. We can’t use this.

  • kipper

    Hate is such a strong word….

  • TAGinMO

    Head to toe tacky.

  • MoHub

    The trim looks like those bendy curlers they sell at Ulta.

  • How many people are going to wear the same Jimmy Choo sandals? Is there a damn sale I wasn’t made aware of? UGH.

    Go home Selena, you’re drunk. And so is your make-up artist.

  • E. D.

    Hate the nails.

  • SewingSiren

    Is this the one where the award is a true size surfboard? If it is, it kinda works.

  • there is so much hate for this. hate the dress, hate the hair, hate the makeup, DETEST the nails! marginally like the shoes, but they’re sullied by the whole look. she’s a pretty girl and sometimes can totally work some looks, but this isn’t one of them.

  • LaSylphide

    Vulgar, tick.
    Homemade looking, tick.
    Want those shoes, tick.

  • blueberrypanckae

    looks like one of those all in one highlighter triangles- the middle is white and the yellow green pink points are the highlighter….my first reaction- not good

  • nannypoo

    This event really seems to bring out the trashy side of the attendees. I have never seen Selena Gomez look quite so slutty or wear such a cheap-looking dress.

  • lrhg

    I actually like the dress but the styling’s all wrong. Lighter makeup, a higher pony, and different shoes would all play off the whimsy of the dress.

  • Neoprene table cloth held together with glow sticks. Lee Press On Nails.

  • jmorino08

    What’s happening with that pink strap over her right shoulder? It’s like the dress is just levitating on her.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Cirque de Soleil’s new show, “Tennis, Anyone?” ?

  • Love the bright, youthful colors with the crisp white. She’s such a cutie. Too bad about every other aspect of the look.

  • Hideous nude mesh and zipper trim and mini pool noodles. Shudder.

  • Kristobel

    Judy Jetson realness.

  • sweet_potato

    Great dress and she looks great.

  • guest2visits

    Looks like it could have been a fun idea but it didn’t happen. Dress is half done PR work.

  • Kate


  • Tired and boring! Doesn’t fit at all! Nice shoes !

  • Tack-o-rama

  • Ummy

    Oh honey… just… no.

  • quiltrx

    This looks VERY “craft project in the zipper-trim trend” to me. I’m sure it doesn’t look anywhere near worth its price tag.

  • demidaemon

    This dress is stupid and whoever styled her head needs to be slapped, because her hair and makeup are terrible.

  • myristica_fragrans

    ew. no. everything about this is fugly.

  • I dunno. When you’re busting out looks like this when you’re twenty, where have you really got left to go? All that makeup, hair, nails, illusion netting – you’re young darling, and don’t need that much help. /cranky grandma

  • drdarke

    Young lady, zip up your dress – now!

  • Melanie

    I just really do not need to be able to tell so easily that you are naked under your dress.

    • sekushinonyanko

      I don’t think she is. I can see A LOT of illusion netting.

  • 1993 called. They want their dress back.

  • JulieK

    Are zippers still a thing? I thought that was long over.

  • samo_samo

    Honestly, it looks better on her than it does on the model.
