We’re total suckers for the holiday season because we get to see celebs transform their red carpet looks from short, summery frocks into killer floor-length shimmery gowns. Last night at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball our fashion-y faves Katy Perry and Selena Gomez were no exception—they oozed vampy-chic gorgeousness in dark, sweeping halter dresses that we need to discuss. Katy Perry wore a curve-hugging, mesh beaded brocade Naeem Khan gown complete with a STUNNING sheer cape and sequin beaded belt. She accessorized with oversized 45-carat blue sapphire and diamond earrings by Lorraine Schwartz, a matching geometric cuff and a satin clutch. For her beauty game, she kept her raven locks sleek and straight and opted for a smoky eye and nude lip with her golden marble nail art. Perf!
Selena also wore a strikingly similar ensemble, which included a black velvet and chiffon Dolce & Gabbana halter gown with sparkly gold embellishments all along the front. The deep, plunging back paired with a soft train adds a serious touch of drama, which we love! She finished her look with a black brocade clutch, ruby earrings and matching ring, and also opted for a smoky eye and nude lip. Instead of stick-straight locks like KP, Selena chose super soft cascading waves that were partially pulled back. Also, um, haiiiii look at her nail art! She sported burgundy tips with a gold accent nail to reflect the colors in her jewelry perfectly. Nice work, Sel. But tell us, which vampy halter gown look do you like best: Katy Perry or Selena Gomez? Let us know in the comments!
