Selena Gomez's Sexiest Dresses Never Leave You Wanting More

Let's get one thing straight: Selena Gomez is sexy. When I watched her perform at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2015 just a few rows away from the stage, I thought, "OK, she is absolutely the most beautiful celebrity I have ever seen in person." While the 24-year-old songstress has the option of dressing to show off her every curve, baring cleavage and flaunting her legs in a short hemline at the same time, her signature look — which she's defined with the help of stylist Kate Young — puts a modest hold on sexy.

Selena's most striking looks show skin, but in small amounts at a time. Perhaps you sneak a peek of side boob when she lifts her arms or you see a slip of thigh as she climbs the stairs in a slitted gown. Selena does not put her entire body on display; she finds easy, effortless ways to flatter her best assets. When you scroll through the photos ahead, you'll see exactly what I mean. These are the sexiest dresses Selena has ever worn, most simply because they're just a touch revealing, and they never leave you wanting more.

Selena's Jacquemus wrap dress had a shorter hemline, but she added a sophisticated style note by mixing navy and black with a pair of Louis Vuitton heels. Selena's sleeves were wide, so when she turned to the side, you could catch a peek of some side boob (NBD).

Selena wore a tomato-red Christopher Kane dress in New York, which came equipped with a leg slit on one side. Her Louis Vuitton sandals accented the black flaps of her collar as she promoted her new music.

For an evening with The Weeknd, Selena wore a long slip that came to her knee but featured a contrast lace neckline.


Perhaps her sexiest number in recent history, this Alexandre Vauthier piece was sheer and striking for a Summer date night in 2017. Selena let the dress do the talking, ditching a bra and slipping into simple Jimmy Choo sandals.

Selena's 2017 Met Gala look was a romantic Coach dress that came with delicate embroidery and a personalized handbag. When she stood up straight, you could barely make out a slip of leg, but as Selena walked the stairs, she revealed a thigh.

We were particularly struck by the cutouts on Selena's Proenza Schouler number. While the design's skirt came to a modest length, Selena confidently bared her assets up top as she stepped out in New York in 2017.

We loved how Selena accessorized her knee-length Givenchy dress with an edgy leather jacket and Gianvito Rossi shoes, bringing structure to her bold outfit.


Selena brought along a Ronald van der Kemp tuxedo dress for Paris Fashion Week in 2016. Her Louis Vuitton satchel meant business, but her Soebedar mesh pumps were a playful touch.

Selena's gorgeous Vionnet gown was semisheer, complete with an elegant overlay. The delicate spaghetti straps stood out from underneath her look, and her outfit was capped with a pair of Christian Louboutin heels when she stepped out in Paris for a Louis Vuitton dinner in 2016.

Selena's off-the-shoulder J. Mendel dress couldn't have possibly made her skin glow any brighter. The star chose the bohemian number for the InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globes party in 2016. Her bright Jacob & Co. jewels deemed the outfit red carpet appropriate, and her train fell to the floor.

For a performance at Annabel's in London in 2015, Selena pulled off a satin Monse gown with ease. The piece was actually a deconstructed take on a silk button-down shirt, and it featured one leg slit so Selena could show off her embellished Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.


Selena's LBD came equipped with a long neck scarf. She wore the slinky design with Stuart Weitzman heels while out in London in 2015.

Selena wore a bow-adorned Lanvin minidress for the American Ballet Theatre's Spring Gala in 2014. From the front, the LBD looked simple, but when she turned to the side, a higher hemline added oomph.
