Selena Gomez's see-through sequin Emmys dress took over 930 hours to make

Selena Gomez just hit the Emmys red carpet looking absolutely incredible. The Only Murders in the Building star wore a gorgeous nude see-through dress decorated with a dazzling beaded floral pattern by Oscar de la Renta, which she accessorized with red heels and a sparkling Tiffany & Co. necklace.

Seriously, stunning.

Following her arrival at the ceremony, the design house shared a look into the making of her 'fit. Consisting of over 450,000 individual sequins in shades of burgundy forming fern tendrils, Selena's custom gown took over 930 hours to hand-embroider.


Kk, now that we’re done collectively freaking out, a few facts: Only Murders is nominated for Best Comedy Series and Best Writing for a Comedy Series, while Martin Short is nominated for Best Actor and Nathan Lane earned a nomination for Best Guest Actor. Unfortunately, Selena didn’t get a Best Actress nomination (and Steve Martin was left off the Best Actor list), but there’s *still* a lot to celebrate!

Namely, her unreal Emmys dress.

Selena is coming off last weekend’s Golden Globes, which ended up being a slightly dramatic evening due to everyone lip-reading her conversation with Taylor Swift. TL;DR: Fans were convinced Selena told Taylor that Kylie Jenner wouldn’t let her take a photo with Timothée Chalamet – which Selena shut down on Instagram.

“Nooooo I told Taylor about two of my friends who hooked up,” she wrote in the Instagram comments of a post from E! News. “Not that that’s anyone’s business.”

A source close to Selena also told People that she “was absolutely not referencing anything about Timothée or Kylie” and “never even saw or spoke to them.”

After all this, Sel announced that she’s taking a break from social media on her Instagram Stories, sharing a video of her boyfriend Benny Blanco and writing, “I’m off social for a while. I’m focusing on what really matters.”
