The Color

I love the simplicity of the nude color of this gown. It makes the overall look emanate a sense of freshness and elegance.

This color doesn’t necessarily have a “pop,” but the more understated color palette allows Selena’s complexion and lustrous hair to really shine

The Silhouette

Selena’s evening gown features a unique column silhouette, a sweetheart neckline, a crystal waistband seated along her natural waist, and an illusion mesh skirt.

Could this gown be any more stunning? This column silhouette is weighted thanks to full-coverage beading that allows it to fall beautifully over Selena’s curves, adding sex appeal.

A crystal waistband wraps around the smallest part of her waist to flatter her figure even more.

The gown is covered in gorgeous crystals and beading, which makes the gown have that necessary pop for a pageant stage. These gorgeous details throughout the bodice of the gown that trickle downwards throughout the skirt take the look to the next level. The details are placed in just the right positions to keep the gown tasteful.

The Styling

The styling of this look is perfection! I absolutely love Selena’s hair styled in natural soft curls. Because of the bodice of the gown, having Selena’s hair styled down does a great job framing her beautiful face.

She tied her whole look together with matching crystal earrings.

The Verdict

I am in love with this evening gown. It is clear that it is a huge HIT! There isn’t a single thing I would change. Excellent choice, Selena.
