After a few months of well-deserved time off, Selena Gomez returned to Hollywood in a big way: by showing up looking beyond gorgeous at the 2016 American Music Awards Sunday night in L.A. The pop star slayed at the AMAs in a red Prada ball gown, looking just like a real-life Barbie doll.
Gomez kept it simple in the A-line gown, pulling her hair back into a low ponytail to keep the focus on her exquisite ensemble. She paired the look with diamond Cartier drop earrings and bronze makeup, reminding us that sometimes less is more when it comes to making a red carpet statement.
Tonight is a big night for the singer, as it marks her return to the public eye following an almost three-month break from the spotlight. After her Revival World Tour, the pop star announced that she was taking some time to focus on her health and happiness.

“As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,” she told People. “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks, and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.”
“I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off,” she said.
We’re so happy to see Gomez smiling again.
