“For the Met Gala, I was getting ready and we wanted to add some color, so I put on some of this tanning lotion, and it looked really beautiful and very even,” Selena recalled. “As the evening kept going on, it was getting a little darker and darker, and I didn’t notice it.”
In fact, the Rare singer didn’t discover the self-tanning failure until she finally made it to her seat. By that point, she had already walked the red carpet, posed for photos and mingled with other A-listers.
As she explained, “I’m at the Met Gala…I’m walking, trying to look all beautiful. And I look at a photo of myself when I sit down, and I’m completely orange.”
