Selena Gomez Serves "Timeless Elegance" in a Black Velvet Gown at the SAG Awards

When the clock strikes midnight, the 2022 SAG Awards will long be over, but the image of Selena Gomez in this midnight velvet gown will forever hold a place on our Pinterest boards. The "Only Murders in the Building" star levitated down the red carpet on Sunday in a custom Oscar de La Renta dress with puff sleeves that commanded our attention from every direction. The figure-hugging gown also featured a scoop neckline and a subtle wraparound cutout that landed just below her bust, giving the illusion of a two-piece dress.

"Timeless elegance. Discover a SAG Awards sneak peek from our atelier," the Oscar de La Renta Instagram account captioned a behind-the-scenes video of the dress being sewn and steamed ahead of the award show. Gomez, styled by Kate Young, gave the dress a villainous twist with a Bvlgari Serpenti Necklace, an emerald ring that perfectly matched the jewels in the snake's eyes, and a pair of diamond earrings. As she walked into the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA, where the show was held, Gomez also gave us a peek at the black bow adorning her elegant bun, the ultimate reminder that looks this dazzling are a gift.
