Disney sweetheart Selena Gomez looked anything but sugary at the Nokia Theater for MTV's Video Music Awards.
Taking a breather from her signature cutesy styles, Selena opted for a fierce black minidress with a half skirt and detailed cutouts. The sleeveless dress featured a plunging neckline with a cuff around the neck. An intricate bodice with subtle side cutouts gave way to a flowing skirt, which reached the floor, but left the front of her legs bare.
She accessorized perfectly with a pair of pointy gold pumps, a gold cuff on her forearm and a matching clutch. She pulled her hair back into a sleek updo, which added to the outfit's edge and gave her an exotic look. Black eyeliner and tons of mascara defined her brown eyes, while a soft coral gloss highlighted her pout.
