Selena Gomez Just Made A Powerful Statement At The Season 2 Premiere Of ‘Only Murders In The Building’

And no, we’re not talking about her dazzling dress.

When Selena Gomez isn't getting candid about her relatable beauty blunders, she's showcasing her timeless and classic style on the red carpet.
Case in point: her asymmetrical Michael Kors silver dress at the season two premiere of Only Murders In The Building. Channelling Joan of Arc realness, Gomez is dripping in demi-couture armour and ready to go to battle.

Featuring a high-thigh slit and ab-bearing cut out, Gomez is clearly taking cues from the disco queens of Studio 54 for this dance floor ready number that would rival that of Bianca Jagger.
While she's definitely learned her lesson from the spray tan fiasco at the 2019 Met Gala, the Rare Beauty founder kept her makeup minimal, sporting only a low, wavy ponytail, her signature cat eye and brushed up brows for the occasion.
Completing her look was a ultra-dewy touch of highlighter and a neutral lip.

However, Gomez wasn't just using the red carpet to prove her sartorial prowess when it comes to public appearances, or talk about the upcoming second season of Only Murders In The Building.
The star took the opportunity to make a powerful statement against the draconian overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court of the United States.
"I'm just not happy and I hope we can do everything in our power to do something to change that," the star said when questioned about what steps Hollywood can take in the wake of the overturning.
"It's about voting, it's about getting men — men needing to stand up and also speak against this issue. It's also the amount of women that are hurting," she added.
Gomez's statement follows a post she made on Twitter in the hours after the judgement was released.
"Watching a Constitutional right be stripped away is horrific. A woman should have the right to CHOOSE what she wants to do with her own body. End of story," her statement read.
"I am fearful of what will happen to those without the necessary means to have access to a safe, legal abortion," she explained on Twitter.
Gomez also shared a link to resources and information about the Bans Off Our Bodies movement, which she described on the red carpet as "all the details of how you can be proactive".
Gomez joins a long line of celebrities like Lorde, Olivia Rodrigo and Lily Allen who have shared their reactions to Roe v. Wade being overturned.
