In Defense of Selena Gomez's Met Gala 2018 Look, Faux Tan Included

Is Selena Gomez trying to tell Justin Bieber something with this new Instagram post?

Read what Selena Gomez wrote in emotional message for ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber on Instagram

It paid homage to The Bible's Queen Esther, who Selena admires, and had a little message written in the ribbon which said: 'Finished with a personal touch from Ms. Gomez'. She did seem to enjoy herself on the night.

The singer wore a custom Coach silk gown that had layers, crystals and a super-long train.

Selena Gomez is known for preaching positivity to her fans, but during the Met Gala this week, that kindness was not returned (to put it mildly). Mysteriously, Gomez disabled comments on the post, which has since amassed over 3.6 million likes.

So it looks like Selena is running away from all the drama - all the more reason to love her even more. Note that she's not upset about her dress and ultra-bronze makeup, which was the subject of major criticism by armchair fashionistas mocking it at home.

The real magic though is how she managed not to get any on that fantastic gown.

Shortly before Gomez turned heads on the red carpet, Coach took to Instagram to share a "first look" at the stunning creation. Sel's fans are distraught that she doesn't like her Met Gala pics, and they're praising her on Twitter and slamming anyone who made fun of her. Now, Sel has responded to the backlash with a hilarious/cryptic Instagram post.
