It seems that every couple of years there’s a dress to turn heads and the latest head turner has been worn by both singer and actress Selena Gomez and model Bella Hadid. This latest gorgeous stunner was designed by high couture fashion designer Alexandre Vauthier. The French designer, who was trained by Thierry Mugler, Couture, is known for his consistent use of black and gold and Swarosvski crystals and embroideries.
The dress is a dramatic low cut piece in sparkly seafoam green that is cinched at the waist and then has a dramatic opening again at the bottom. The dress is extremely sexy and absolutely stunning. It does not, however, lend itself for easy walking down the runway, as was demonstrated by Bella Hadid.
Hadid wore the piece at the Alexandre Vauthier Couture show during Paris Fashion Week. She avoided a near wardrobe malfunction by holding the bottom front of the dress while she strutted her stuff on the runway in order to avoid flashing the audience. Talk about a stressful situation! But Bella is no stranger to such situations. Earlies this year, she experienced a Marylin Monroe moment at the Cannes Film Festival when her stunning strapless pink gown, also by Alexandre Vauthier, was flown open by a gust of wind, revealing her undergarments. She handled the moment like the pro she is and wasn’t at all embarrassed by the occurrence.
The second dress sighting was on Selena Gomez herself through a photo shared on Instagram by her stylist Christian Classen, who shared a boomerang photo of her in the dress while undertaking a “top secret project.” She wore the dress with a black sash cinching the waist, which gave it a very dramatic and old-Hollywood flair.
The picture seems to be related to an earlier post by Selena’s Makeup artists which shows her with a super sexy slicked-back bob and luscious red lips. In this picture, however, her outfit was not revealed. But putting the two images together, makes us wonder what this secret project Selena is working on is! Is she simply doing a photoshoot in which she was wearing one of Vauthier’s designs, or is she going to be the new face for his collection? She might even be collaborating with the designers, which is not unrealistic, considering that she did collaborate and help design some of the bags for the coach campaign.
The gorgeous green gown is not the first time Selena Gomez has stepped out in an Alexandre Vauthier. Back in June there was a stink about an asymmetric, sheer, black Vauthier dress that she wore in New York City. Apparently, the pop star suffered a wardrobe malfunction due to the flashing lights from the paparazzi. The blazing lights caused her chest in the front and underwear in the back to be exposed. Showing as much professionalism as Bella Hadid, however, she did not give the mishap a second thought and carried on with the night.
Whether in the midst of a wardrobe malfunction or not, the seafoam green dress is a head-turner and will most likely be remembered as a classic staple of Alexander Vauthier Couture. Known for sparkle and precise styles, this designer is still on the rise in the world of high-fashion. And just like Selena, who just dropped her new single “Fetish,” is also at the top of her game not only with her music but with her fashion-choices. It won’t be surprising to see if these two have paired up for a serious collaboration. We will be watching and can’t wait to see what’s next for the both of them!
