MTV Europe Music Awards Fug Carpet: Selena Gomez

I guess Selena here got to take a break from all the allegations that her boyfriend Justin Bieber (ew) fathered (ew) the child of some random groupie (ew) after, um, making sweet love to said groupie in the bathroom backstage (ew) at one of his concerts (ew). Girl, I can think of no better reason to leave the country.  Ireland is beautiful and you know that if the Baby Daddy Rumor Mill (ew) gets too intense, it shouldn’t be too hard to find someone to serve you a delicious Guinness. Be that as it may, let’s look at the outfits she trotted out as she played The Carrie Underwood of the MTV EMAs.

    She’s cute I guess. None of the outfits wowed me. Too much hair in her face.

  2. Annie E

    From what I understand, the Bella & Edward wedding song is Iron & Wine’s “Flightless Bird, American Mouth,” which is a song that is not exactly bright or hopeful. Cheers.

    All of these outfits are not all that great, but I do find the Grease ensemble entertaining.

  3. Karen Hayes

    That red jumpsuit is so hideous, I can’t even find words.

    I have an inexplicable affection for Selena Gomez. I can’t stand her music, but I just think her little face is so cute! And really, Wizards of Waverly Place was pretty fun for a tween show.

    Ah, I feel bad for her. Her stylist seriously let her down in her hour of need. If there’s one time when a girl really needs to look good it’s when her publicity plan has gone down in flames because her “boyfriend” got some groupie pregnant in a bathroom (allegedly) (and also, ew). She’s so pretty that making her look good should have been an easy task and yet, no. That’s just wrong.

  5. lanae

    i agree with the inexplicable affection. i think shes adorable. although at 19 im sure shed had to be referred to as such

  6. CJ

    That first dress doesn’t look like something you would wear. It looks like a wedding cake.

    Now I’m hungry.

  7. sophie

    i don’t understand why some american disney teen is hosting the european music awards. she is hardly known here. the american music awards are not hosted by someone from europe or asia or australia?!

  8. Carolina Girl

    Jessica, you are right. She can do so much better than the Bieb.

  9. Lynne

    I feel obliged to say, once again, ugh, Marchesa. Please make it stop.

  10. INeedANap

    Unrelated to the clothing, but that dude in slide 8 is FINE. Yummy.

  11. Kit

    these were all varying degrees of fugness, except, oddly, the figure skating dress which I thought was pretty cute. (I dunno why, I just did!)

    And also: I so agree with YOU HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO, GIRL

    To my surprise the thing I’m taking away from this article is the need for a formal roller-skating party, which sounds insane enough that it ought to exist. Surely the world could only benefit from that!

  13. Chasmosaur

    Selena Gomez – whatever contractual agreements you have with the Bieb’s camp, surely there’s a get-out-of-hell-free card for him being involved in a paternity scandal. Use it and don’t look back.

    I will say that much like pulling off the color of the yellow top for her former roller-skating party, she is also pulling off the acid-green of the entire-too-80′s bubble-dress. (PLEASE tell me that style isn’t coming back. It didn’t even look good on the Social X-Rays lampooned for wearing them.) Jewelry is heinous, but good color. Time for a confab with a stylist somewhere.

  14. vandalfan

    Pretty hair and/or extensions, but at her age, it’s probably all her own. I heard the baby-momma tried to pin it on several other putative dads before landing on the Beibs, much like that K gal tried to recruit several putative basketball playing fiances before finding the patsy.

    That jumpsuit- shudder.

  15. Sandra

    And the hideous nude-colored shoofs. Ick.

  16. Helen O'Hara

    I saw Monte Carlo recently and was disturbed by how fun and likeable she was, having assumed she’d be a big fat nothing onscreen. The film started off like it was going to turn into something surprisingly good (like She’s The Man) but alas no. You should Fromage it; it goes horribly wrong and turns into a naff farce.

    • Sarah

      I too saw Monte Carlo and spent the whole time hoping the Fug Girls would take it on! Please do it!!!

  17. wordphreak

    I think the green prom dress is adorable, but for the rest of it, what is she trying to prove? That she’s a grown-up? That she’s “sexy”? Just creepy and sad.

  18. Lina

    Oooh, I like the last dress. I wonder what color it is when it isn’t lit by firepots…

  19. Bambi Anne Dear

    Totally no interest in Miss Gomez but the golfing hunk is edible.

  20. Callie

    I don’t know how the hell you sit down hygenically in skirts that short, never mind elegantly.

  21. Emma

    I don’t usually wear maxi dresses while standing in a ring of fire.

    • Jenna Horko

      Gotta agree with you there. Also, the headlines and copious accidents involving the highly-flammable boho maxi skirts a few years back have given me additional concerns on that front.
      On another note, I’m also of the club of “really find Selena Gomez adorable, though I have never heard even one of her songs or seen a single episode of her Disney show”. Wait, maybe that’s part of the reason why I find her adorable… I also find it interesting that Bieber, while still looking like a junior version of Ellen in his clothing choices, still dressed less effeminately at the EMAs than at the VMAs. Apparently the paternity suit made him butch up (as much as his widdle self could, which is not very much).

  22. jean

    I kind of love her first dress. She’s totally young enough and short enough to pull that off. She looks SO much younger when she’s not next to the Bieb. I hate the red dress. Too Vegas for someone so young.

  23. NYCGirl

    He looks like he’s 12! Not really relevant to the post, but all I can think of to say.

  24. Sajorina

    I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but… the ONLY thing I liked were the sequined booty shorts! The rest of the slideshow was ick!, ew!, yuck!, blah!, lame!, nope!, gross!, ridiculous!, ghastly!, oh, please, God make it stop!

  25. Kat

    Am I the only one who noticed a perceptible shift in Selena’s styling from “cute” to “kinda skanky” as soon as she turned 18? It’s like Disney was just waiting to pump up the sex appeal overnight.

    “Right guys, she’s legal in all states now. Get those skirts higher!”. I feel a bit sorry for her, really.

    • MeWithTheE

      Really? Somehow her clothes don’t come off as skanky to me. yeah, her skirts are short, but she covers up her top…she seems far more covered and modest compared to most the Disney girls when they hit 18. And, these are stage clothes which are totally different from clothes you would actually wear doing stuff and while sitting in chairs.

      She always looks like she’s just having fun wearing stuff from her crazy aunts closet. I don’t know why, I think she can pull of hideous outfits. IDK why…

      • Aly

        You haven’t seen her in the short-short skirt with garter nylons yet, have you?

  26. ChaChaHeels

    I feel sorry for her too. That red jumpsuit, she needs a lawyer for that one. Count me in as another one who would like to see Marchesa and their ongoing line of slutty first communion/skater outfits stop. That’s not clothing for adult women, and it never will be, no matter how many desperate-to-get-any-role starlets you force into them.

  27. Cody

    The white dress makes me think of Vera-Ellen gracing us at the summit of a large, red carpeted stairwell in “White Christmas.” I am now humming, “Mandy, is the minister handy?” Too bad she’s not sporting a clutch shaped like a tambourine. :-\

  28. kgb

    It’s a beautiful design and only suffers in my opinion from being a bit short for a teenager. It’s hard in today’s market, however, to be fashionable and sexy without over-emphasizing at least one body part so I sympathize with her choice as it only overemphasizes her legs. While they are lovely, she is a child and therefore the argument that they shouldn’t be exposed to that degree is valid. Also valid is the fact that children should not be over-sexualized (but are) and therefore, it’s easy to put such a young lady in a short dress but, hey, most people of an appropriate age don’t carry such a short garment so well. That being said, some of an “appropriate” age (older, beautiful, artificially blond to a near cotton candy pull it off her head in clumps degree, terribly smart, starred in a Shakespearian remake for which she won an Academy award) do, and it’s equally distressing to see them flaunting- flaunting it, I mean.

    Coal Miner’s Daughter, anyone? I bet Doo thinks it’s way sexy.
