Selena Gomez’s Slip Dress Can Be Yours For Less Than $150

On Sunday evening, Selena Gomez gave her first television performance since her kidney transplant this summer, singing her new song “Wolves” at the 2017 American Music Awards. While her time on the stage sparked a bit of controversy — Did she have a panic attack? Was she lip-synching? — our eyes watched Gomez as she sung amid a troupe of dancers who carried her, giving the appearance that she was being kidnapped. It was a concept made even more real thanks to her appearance; she performed in a white slip dress, wet hair, and fake blood on her knees.

The aesthetic was noticeably different from the moto jacket-inspired Coach dress she wore on the red carpet. But as Gomez’s stylist of three years, Kate Young, tells Refinery29: “I wanted the red carpet look to be a counterpoint to her performance look. So we went with a tough, sexy Coach look and Roberto Coin jewelry. The outfit took a couple weeks. She looks so hot in this outfit, especially with her new blonde hair!

Young continued: “The performance was directed by Petra Collins and when we were discussing the overall look and feel, we referenced Twin Peaks and Picnic at Hanging Rock. That conversation totally got me into a [formalwear brand] Gunne Sax mood. Selena’s outfit is a little, silk slip dress, a Tiffany & Co. diamond cross, and white sneakers. I think she looked gorgeous and fit into Petra’s vision of the performance.”

The best part, though, is that the slip dress Gomez is easy to get your hands on. Made by Ginia, an Australian luxury brand made up of 100% silk nightwear and lingerie pieces, the silk chemise is, according to the label’s site, “cut from pure silk, with delicate pin tuck detailing and scalloped lace trimmings.”

“We had no idea Selena was going to wear Ginia for her first performance back,” Emilie Hewitt, the brand’s sales director, tells R29. “We found out yesterday afternoon and all the girls in the office were going crazy. I don’t think it get better than Selena: She is someone we truly admire and is the perfect style icon for the Ginia customer. We have always had a ’90s minimal aesthetic in our styling, and this was definitely represented in the performance by pairing back our silk lace chemise with white trainers and socks.”

The dress retails for $145.41 — just the perfect layering piece to wear when you hit the holiday party circuit this season. Screaming fans, however, are not included.

Who Are The Millennials Who Support Trump?

Even though most millennials voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. election, about a third supported Donald Trump for president. Now, more than a year later, a new report is shedding light on what motivated them to support the Republican candidate — and how they feel about the job he is doing in the White House. Spoiler alert: The results might surprise you.

About 35% of millennials who voted cast a ballot for Trump in 2016, according to the 2017 Millennial Impact Report. (About 51% voted for Hillary Clinton, 12% for a third-party candidate, and 2% didn’t vote for any presidential candidate.)

The study, conducted by Achieve and supported by The Case Foundation, found that about 73% of millennials who voted for President Trump said they’re either “satisfied” or “extremely satisfied” with his performance in the White House so far and 62% think the U.S. is headed in the right direction. Only 6% of his supporters reported they were unsatisfied with the president, and 21% remained neutral.

The report said the racial and ethnic makeup of the millennial Trump supporters was 46% white, 24% Latinx, 14% Black, and 26% Asian. About nine in 10 of the supporters interviewed said they typically speak up about the causes or policies they care about, and the three issues that are most important to them were employment, healthcare reform, and immigration. (Civil rights and discrimination were the #1 issues for millennials in general, followed by employment and healthcare reform.)

When it comes to the issues they care about, millennial Trump supporters take similar steps to millennials overall: They do things like calling their elected officials, participate in marches, and sign petitions. But two key differences between them and other millennials is that Trump supporters are less likely to think social media can help enact change or to determine whether to buy a product or service based on the company’s stance on certain issues.

But overall, the millennials who support President Trump are among the most actively involved people of their generation.

The Secret To Lili Reinhart's AMAs Look Last Night Is $13

When Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart hit the American Music Awards red carpet with a killer smoky eye and Stranger Things’ Sadie Sink channeled Mad Max with her undone waves — we had to know exactly how to recreate it.

Serena gave birth to the couple's daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr., two months ago, after accidentally announcing her pregnancy in April. (She is VERY cute, btw.)

Well, on Thursday night in New Orleans, the couple made things official when they walked down the aisle at their Beauty and the Beast-inspired wedding, and it was MAGNIFICENT.

According to Vogue, the couple danced their first dance to “Tale as Old as Time,” and other songs from the Disney classic played throughout the evening.

There were also nods to Serena's amazing career — the tables were named after the 23 grand slam titles she's won, while the party favors were personalized trophies.

The bride was stunning in not one…

…Ms. Tina Knowles and Beyoncé (who was snapped riding the carousel, btw)…

…as well as Kim Kardashian-West, Anna Wintour, Colton Haynes, and Eva Longoria.

Kim told Vogue, “I’ve known Serena for so long and am so happy she’s found her prince…she’s been so happy and has this light about her that is so special to see. You just know it is so real.”

Alexis shared a few photos of the special day on his Instagram, adding a message so beautiful it’ll make you cry like you’re watching the first 15 minutes of Up.

“You are the greatest of all time, not just in sport — I’m talking about as a mother and as a wife. I am so excited to write so many more chapters of our fairy tale together. And my whole life I didn’t even realize it, but I was waiting for this moment. And everything that I have done, everything that I am so proud of in my career, and in my life, for the last 34 years, pales in comparison to what we’re doing today. And I am so grateful, and I am so in love.”
