Selena Gomez has a good track record with red. She’s worn it to the Oscars, the Grammys, in sequins, in satin and in silk. In other words, she knows the colour looks good on her and she isn’t afraid to play around with it. The most recent example? Her best friend’s bridal shower.
Attending her best friend Courtney Barry’s bridal shower over the weekend, the singer — who is on a social media hiatus — proved red is the perfect pre-wedding hue, especially when it comes to a garden party.
Showing up to the party, Gomez opted for a sleeveless, red, capped sleeve dress, which she then paired with white sneakers. Apart from being breezy and laid back for a weekend event, the dress is giving us serious wedding inspiration — engagements, showers, hens weekends, this style really works!
Of course, the dress isn’t just ideal for wedding-related events. Whether you dress it up with a pair of strappy heeled sandals, or down (like Gomez did, with sneakers), the red sleeveless dress is as versatile as they come.
Barry is one of Gomez’s best friends, with the pair recently getting matching friendship tattoos with another two of their best girl group.
Gomez took the opportunity to share a heartfelt post about her friend, writing of how much she loves Barry and her kind nature.
"My actual #1@courtneyjbarry you are an incredible woman," Gomez wrote. "The way you handle life’s most confusing moments is indescribable and graceful. You are moved by the littlest stories to the most heartbreaking ones, you will give someone your perfume if they say you smell nice, you are freaking hilarious and always stand firm in your faith, a loving sister, an amazing friend and a beautiful daughter. You are the definition of FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made baby! #1"
So, whether it's your number one girl's bridal shower or a birthday party on the weekend, this dress is for everyone.
