Selena Gomez Channels Her Namesake at the 2024 Emmys With an Updo and Red Lip

All Texas girls grow up admiring the late Tejano music star Selena Quintanilla. That includes modern-day star Selena Gomez, who was actually named after Quintanilla (something she revealed on an episode of Selena + Chef).

Tonight, at the 2024 Emmys, Gomez took the Selena likeness to the next level by channeling one of Quintanilla’s most iconic beauty looks, from the 1994 Grammys. First there’s the sexy but piece-y ’90s updo—complete with a tendril bang curled to perfectly highlight Gomez’s glowing face—done by longtime hairstylist Marissa Marino. Then there’s the jewelry: whether in earrings or a show-stopping necklace, both women knew that sparkles are key to a good night on the red carpet. But most important is the red lip. For Quintanilla, it was a trademark beauty look, while for Gomez, tonight’s vampy dark berry lip is almost certainly from her own brand, Rare Beauty. 

Perhaps Gomez is also trying to channel some of Quintanilla’s good luck. On that night in 1994, the elder Selena won best Mexican American album for Live; tonight Gomez is nominated for her work as an executive producer for Only Murders in the Building. Only time will tell if it pays off, but either way she found a winning beauty look.
