Selena Gomez’ spray tan is the only thing fans are talking about from her Met Gala 2018 look. The singer shocked fans with her over the top sunbaked look and is being compared to Ross from Friends, the Oompa Loompas, and Donald Trump!
Gomez said her look for the Met Gala was inspired by Queen Esther from the Bible. She wore a light and airy custom made chiffon gown designed by Stuart Evers at Coach, based on the ‘Heavenly Body’ theme for the event. She accessorised with a custom made Kisslock Frame bag from Coach that bore an inscription in Selena’s own handwriting. Her soft hairstyling was done by Marissa Marino and glittery makeup by Hung Vanngo.
Last year, the 25-year-old star chose to wear Coach at the Gala as well. Many criticised her look as being too similar to last year’s gown. However, what fans were most harsh about was not her dress, hair or makeup but her spray tan.
Selena, who usually looks extremely well put together at events, was criticised for looking like she had stepped out in a nightie. Her spray tan place came under fire for letting the singer go out in public with her overly bronze body.
it might just be the lighting but Selena Gomez looks like a first year who just discovered fake tan and caked herself in a whole bottle of cocoa brown on her way to her first disco pic.twitter.com/V4fJqITeje

The singer was also compared with Ross Geller when he accidentally overdid his spray tan in an episode on Friends.

Fans were nothing short of brutal, calling her tan disastrous and atrocious. One Twitter user even compared her to Donald Trump, asking if they went to the same person to get a tan!

Many speculated that Gomez who attended last year’s Met Gala with then boyfriend, The Weeknd, would bring a plus one to this year’s event as well (possibly on again off again boyfriend, Justin Bieber). But she chose to attend the event solo.
