Selena Gomez has recently reminisced her most memorable ‘beauty disaster’ that she will never forget. The Rare Beauty founder said her look at the Heavenly Bodies-themed Met Gala four years ago was the ultimate flub. Gomez revealed she regrets how tan she looks in photos.
In a recent interview with Glamour UK, Selena explained, “While I was getting ready for the Met Gala a few years ago, we put on a bit of tanning lotion and, it looked beautiful.” For unversed, Selena Gomez sported a white Stuart Vevers Coach gown, glittery eyeshadow, and diamond jewelry to the Met Gala 2018 but she regrets using tanning lotion.
However, the Wolves singer was happy with her tan at the start of the evening, but later she realized her complexion took on an increasingly orange tint. “The night went on and it kept getting darker and darker,” she said. “When I sat down, I saw a photo of myself, and it looked completely orange. And here I am at this prestigious event, my first thought was, ‘I have to get out of here!'”
Two days after the fashion’s big night, Gomez posted a video to Instagram quipping about running away when she saw her photos from the event. In the video, the Only Murders in the Building star jogged towards a car in a parking garage in her white gown, its train trailing behind her. “Me when I saw my pictures from MET,” she captioned the clip.
However, at the time, a source told People that Gomez posted her Instagram video to “clap back” at her critics. “In person, she honestly felt great but not everything looks the same as it does in person,” the source said of the beauty blunder. “She was just clapping back at people who were commenting on her tan and hair and wanted to make a joke about it.”
