After confirming their relationship last month, Selena Gomez was spotted kissing her new boyfriend, Benny Blanco, backstage at the 81st Golden Globe Awards, where she was also seen sharing some tea with her best friend Taylor Swift.
The 31-year-old singer and actress, who stars in Only Murders in the Building alongside Steve Martin and John Hoffman, was up for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy but lost to Ayo Edebiri of The Bear.

As seen in Selena Gomez’s most recent red-carpet ensemble, red is a major trend at the moment. While the color gives off a powerful and sophisticated vibe, Sel looked happy and playful while posing on the red carpet in her Armani gown.
The Elegance of Selena’s Golden Globes Ensemble
The exquisite creation featured a fitted bodice with a halter neck, pleated details, and diamond cutouts, showing a glimpse of Sel’s midriff and cleavage. It was adorned with three black rosettes down the center, embellished with glittering crystals, and a black waistband to enhance the waist.
The bottom half of the gorgeous dress was a structured asymmetrical skirt with a retro-style high-low design. One side skimmed above her knees, while the other created a voluminous effect that revealed the gown’s sheer black lining.

A Touch of Glamour: Selena’s Jewelry Choices
Erin Walsh, Selena Gomez’s stylist, topped off her red outfit with exquisite Bulgari diamond pieces, giving the shiny ensemble even more glitz and glamour.
She adorned her black manicured fingers with a selection of 18kt white gold rings, including a $19,500 Fiorever ring set with a central diamond and pavé diamonds, a $11,800 Fiorever ring with a central round brilliant-cut diamond and pavé diamonds, a $2,270 Serpenti Viper ring, and another flower-shaped ring.
She further accessorized her already glam appearance by stacking multiple bracelets on each wrist, including a diamond bracelet, a Fiorever coil bracelet, and a Serpenti watch.
Her dazzling jewelry was completed with a pair of Bulgari earrings affixed to her ears. Erin Walsh counts Anne Hathaway, Elizabeth Banks, Jessica Alba, and Sofia Carson as some of her high-profile celebrity clients.

Selena’s Footwear and Makeup: Completing the Look
Creating a cohesive look, Selena Gomez slipped her feet into a pair of Christian Louboutin “Hot Chick” slingback pumps in red patent leather. The bold wavy slingback strap with V-shaped notches enhances the pump’s classic pointed-toe silhouette, finished with 4-inch stiletto heels.
When it came to her glam, Selena worked with Marissa Marino for her sleek updo, Tom Bachik for her Golden Glazed Fire nails, and Melissa Murdick for her doll makeup.

Melissa applied shades that complement the Armani creation to accentuate Sel’s dress’s elegant and playful mood.
Using Selena Gomez’s very own Rare Beauty makeup line, she applied the Liquid Highlighter in Transcend, Eyeshadow Stick in Compassion, and Liquid Blush in Hope.
Melissa shared a video clip of herself recreating Selena’s Golden Globes makeup look. In the short clip, she explained that, to prevent Gomez from looking “greasy,” she applied the liquid highlighter “across the cheek area, down the center of the nose, and just a touch above the brow at the temple,” avoiding the center of the face.

She then applied foundation on top, showing a “gorgeous sheen that comes through.”
“Instead of going for a very predictable red lip to compliment the dress, I wanted the dress to shine and I complimented it with shades on the eyes that were not just kind of boring browns” as “those can make you look washed out and drab.”
She used a burgundy shade for her eyes to brighten them up and flatter her skin tone.
She then created a flush across Selena’s entire cheek, creating a “feminine, soft, and pretty vibe that complements the sexiness of the dress she was wearing.”

Did Selena Gossip About Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet with Taylor Swift and Keleigh Sperry?
In a video that has gone viral on social media, Selena Gomez approached Taylor Swift and Keleigh Sperry’s table and appeared to spill some tea about Timothée and Kylie, leaving Swift and Sperry surprised.

Selena allegedly told them, “I asked for a picture with him and she said no.” Sperry, who’s married to actor Miles Teller, clarified, “ With Timothée?” Swift and Sperry appeared visibly taken aback when Selena nodded.
However, a source told US Weekly that “Selena didn’t speak with Kylie nor Timothée at The Globes, there was never any drama,” adding that she “never asked to take a photo” with her A Rainy Day in New York co-star.
Another source close to the actress exclusively told People that “she was absolutely not referencing anything about Timothee or Kylie” and that they “never even saw or spoke to them.”
Gomez addressed the issue directly by commenting on an E! News Instagram post, “Noooooo I told Taylor about two of my friends who hooked up. Not that that’s anyone business.”

Chalamet also shut down the rumors and told TMZ he is “cool” with Selena Gomez. When asked if his girlfriend Kylie Jenner and his Rainy Day in New York co-star Selena Gomez had any “beef,” he said “No,” adding “We’re all good.”
