Selena’s 2023 MTV VMAs ensemble was custom-made for her.

Her long dark hair was down in a straight style, hanging down her back.

She had subtle glam makeup on and a large pair of earrings that looked like flower petals.

One wrote: “Selena Gomez looks beautiful.”

“Absolutely loving Selena Gomez’s dress! She looks flawless,” someone else posted.


“Omg! @selenagomez at the VMAs wow! She looks amazing! Her dress and hair!! The look wow!!” a fourth fan remarked.

She is nominated for several awards at the show this year.
