Actor-singer Selena Gomez ditched her girly get-up and dazzled everyone by sporting a bold and sexy Bollywood-inspired look at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards held on Sunday in Culver City, California.
While performing her new song Come and Get It, Gomez wore a red-hot tattered outfit with thigh-high slits. Her make-up, too, was very Indian — eyes lined heavily with dark kohl and smudged with silver grey eye shadow, tousled waves and red hot smouldering lips resembling those of Bollywood heroines. Her overall look was topped with a big red statement bindi on her forehead and a chunky gold payal (anklet) on her feet, according to the Hindustan Times.
Considering Selena’s attire, fashion designers suggested that Bollywood is definitely the flavour of the season in the West.
Fashion designer Rina Dhaka said, “Selena’s red dress is straight out of a Hindi film. Indian cinema never fails to fire the imagination of Hollywood actors and fashion designers in the West.”
International pop stars such as Madonna, Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani have also taken inspiration from Bollywood style in the past.
