Selena Gomez wows in silver gown at Rare Impact Fund Benefit in LA

Selena Gomez had all eyes on her as she arrived on the red carpet ahead of her hosting duties at the Rare Impact Fund Benefit Supporting Youth Mental Health in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

The singer and actress, 31, first wowed in a mermaid tail halter-neck silver glittering gown with a stunning rose embellishment before slipping into a stylish purple flower frock.

The star accessorized the stylish look with a pair of matching silver earrings and silver rings. Selena wore her raven tresses in a sleek bob and accentuated her naturally stunning features with just a touch of glowing bronze makeup.

A number of friends showed up to support the star at the event, including her kidney donor Francia Raisa, her ex-boyfriend Taylor Lautner, and her Only Murders in the Building co-star Martin Short.

The Rare Impact Fund was launched by Selena as part of her commitment to address issues of mental health. One percent of all her Rare Beauty product sales is donated to the fund.

For her second red carpet look, Gomez stunned onlookers in a fun purple minidress shaped like a hisbiscus flower.

She strolled the venue in silver strappy heels that gave her petite frame a boost.

Gomez launched her cosmetics Rare Beauty brand in 2020.

One of the brand’s goals is to eventually raise $100 million so that mental health resources can be provided to youth regardless of their socioeconomic class.

Also joining her at the event was her friend Francia Raisa, 35, who confirmed that there is ‘no beef’ between them earlier this year, despite ongoing feud rumors.

Raisa matched Selena in a stunning one-shoulder silver gown that clung to her hourglass figure and featured a similar mermaid-style bottom.

Selena’s kidney donor wore her brunette tresses in a chic updo, with a few strands left to frame her face.

In August, Raisa shut down rumors that she was forced to donate her kidney to the singer.

The actress made headlines in 2017 with her act of kindness, donating to help Gomez as she battled lupus-related organ damage.

While appearing on the Good Guys Podcast, Francia was quizzed about the procedure, prompting her to explain: ‘I just felt it in my heart, I knew I was a match. I knew it was gonna happen.

‘No one forced me to do anything. It came out of the genuine kindness of my heart and I’ve been super blessed ever since.’

She went on to reveal that she considers herself to be a ‘walking success story,’ noting ‘I take better care of myself now than I did before.’

Raisa met Gomez in 2007 and they developed a tight bond, later attending a number of red carpet events together.

However, since donating the kidney to Gomez, the pair has had a precarious relationship, at one point feuding for months.

But it appears things have smoothed over between them since, with Raisa supporting Selena at her event.

She added height to her look with red hot platform heels.

Selena’s Rare Beauty company certainly has much to celebrate. Aside from its charitable aims the brand has been extremely successful in the competitive makeup space.

Last year the company sold around $70 million in just the blush category alone according to Bloomberg.

In 2020 Gomez discussed why it was important for her to also include a worthy social cause in her brand’s agenda.

She told Forbes that she felt society is often flooded with imagery that ‘makes people feel less than or the need to achieve a perceived perfection, which is absolutely unattainable.’

‘I have been open with my own personal mental health struggles and have seen myself affected by feeling less than. Through my openness, I have heard from many young people over the years struggling as well and so this is something very close to my heart.’
