Last week (November 5), actress and singer Selena Gomez attended the City Of Hope's 2015 Spirit Of Life charity gala in Santa Monica, California, and she was definitely dressed to impress! Never one to shy away from a daring and fun sartorial choice on the red carpet, the 23-year-old glowed in a white and silver ensemble which she paired with a classic high-glamour makeup look and a tousled, romantic hairstyle to match! This definitely calls for an immediate beauty breakdown...
Get the look
The star stepped out for the evening in a white, plunging cocktail dress by Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko, complete with button fastenings, ruffled long sleeves and a choker neckline. The star then paired the dress with silver strappy heels, silver jewelry, and a red manicure with eye-catching silver flecks of glitter: gorgeous!
Selena has found just the hairstyle to complement any center-piece outfit choice: this classic low romantic chignon!
To recreate this simple, low-key style, gather your locks into a loose low ponytail at the nape of your neck and for a couple of strands to remain romantically loose around your face.
Separate your ponytail into 4 or 5 strands and wrap them around the hairtie before securing them with bobby pins, creating a textured, overlapping chignon. Finish by teasing both the bun and the rest of your hair with your fingers to give it a bit of volume and body, before giving your tresses a spritz of fixitive hairspray.
The LWD - little white dress - is a classic wardrobe necessity, which is why it needs a classic makeup look to go with it! Selena paired hers with a firey red lipstick and a hint of blush on her cheeks, with some simple yet seductive defined eye makeup.
Give this look a go by first tracing your upper lashline with a black liquid liner, then do the same with a pencil liner along the lower lashes. Dust your lids with a pink-champagne eyeshadow shade and complete with a couple of coats of volumizing mascara.
