Selena Gomez Ditched Her Heels and Went Barefoot at the SAG Awards
Selena Gomez's first red carpet appearance of 2022 didn't exactly go according to plan. While she looked flawless in a black velvet, puff-sleeve Oscar de la Renta dress and a massive diamond choker at the 28th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards last night, her Christian Louboutin heels broke while walking halfway down the carpet and caused her to take a slight tumble.
She handled the situation like a total pro, and rather than being embarrassed by the fall, Sel ditched her stilettos entirely and went barefoot for the rest of the award show. The actress even went on stage to present the award for Outstanding Female Actress in a Supporting Role alongside Martin Short sans shoes. In a clip shared to Twitter, Selena held up her long gown (to safeguard against another trip) as she made her way up to the podium, exposing her bare feet.
"What happened to Selena Gomez's shoes?" questioned one fan, while another tweeted that "#SelenaGomez barefoot is my fav part of the #SAGAwards so far!" A third viewer praised the singer's "camp" vibe.
Once on stage, Selena had another relatable moment while joking about her Botox. Before announcing Ariana DeBose as the winner in the category, Short, Sel's co-presenter, made a joke about not being able to move his face because his Botox was "still fresh." Following a pause, Selena shrugged and playfully added, "Alright. Mine too."
Ahead of the award show, Selena documented her bombshell transformation on Instagram. Going from makeup-free to full glam, Selena is first pictured in a cozy pink sweater and with bedhead, before the screen cuts to her gorgeous SAG Awards look, which in addition to her Oscar de la Renta dress, included a slicked-back bun tied neatly with a bow ribbon that matched her gown.
