When the clock strikes midnight, the 2022 SAG Awards will long be over, but the image of Selena Gomez in this midnight velvet gown will forever hold a place on our Pinterest boards. The “Only Murders in the Building” star levitated down the red carpet on Sunday in a custom Oscar de La Renta dress with puff sleeves that commanded our attention from every direction. The figure-hugging gown also featured a scoop neckline and a subtle wraparound cutout that landed just below her bust, giving the illusion of a two-piece dress.
“Timeless elegance. Discover a SAG Awards sneak peek from our atelier,” the Oscar de La Renta Instagram account captioned a behind-the-scenes video of the dress being sewn and steamed ahead of the award show. Gomez, styled by Kate Young, gave the dress a villainous twist with a Bvlgari Serpenti Necklace, an emerald ring that perfectly matched the jewels in the snake’s eyes, and a pair of diamond earrings. As she walked into the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA, where the show was held, Gomez also gave us a peek at the black bow adorning her elegant bun, the ultimate reminder that looks this dazzling are a gift.
