"I'm going to my movie premiere," Selena Gomez gushed on Instagram before hitting the red carpet for her new film
Selena Gomez stepped out in the Big Apple on Monday, attending the New York City premiere of her new film, The Dead Don’t Die.
The actress and singer, 26, walked the red carpet at the Museum of Modern Art in a flowing $16,000 Celine little black dress, which featured an off-the-shoulder, embroidered ostrich feathers straps neckline, draped bustier, and an above the knee, flared skirt hemline.
She completed the ensemble with a pair of matching black, peep-toe heels and accessorized with dangling, diamond earrings, and several silver rings on her left hand.
Stylist to the stars, Kate Young, put the ensemble together and shared a sea of behind-the-scenes clips of Gomez getting ready on Instagram Stories.
Celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo — who gave Gomez a nude lip, a subtle smokey eye and light, rosy highlights on her cheekbone — also posted videos of Gomez getting into glam, as did hairstylist Marissa Marino (capturing every angle of Gomez’s wavy loose updo) and Tom Bachik (the man behind Gomez’s sheer nails).
“I’m going to my movie premiere,” Gomez gushed in one of their clips while bouncing around in her flouncy, mini dress.
Gomez’s premiere night out was one of three public appearances she’s made since she completed treatment following her hospitalization late last year. The star took a lengthy break from the public eye and social media, to focus on her mental and physical health.
“I am a believer of therapy,” she said. “I wish I could have done a lot of things and experienced things maybe a little differently.”
“I go to therapy. It’s just one of the most important things — to get to know yourself,” Gomez continued. “Not saying everyone in the world has to do it! But I do think that it’s helped me understand myself and my childhood a lot better.”
