Selena Gomez, a Hollywood beauty, is a significant fashion inspiration. From red carpet appearances to informal sightings, she exudes grandeur at all times. But do you know which of her looks we think is the most royal? The one where she wore an Indian saree! You haven’t seen it yet? Scroll down for more information!
Every fan has long wished for Selena to do a concert in India. The beauty is famous all around the world, and the situation is no different here. While that may not have occurred yet, Sel did once give her Indian admirers a special surprise.
Selena Gomez wore an orange saree back in 2014. It appeared to be a Southern Indian item, and the Come & Get It singer matched it with matching jewellery. Her traditional look was complemented by a tiny crimson bindi.
Selena Gomez shared the photo on Instagram with an amusing message. “Sari, not sari,” she scribbled next to folded hands.

As predicted, Indian supporters flooded the comment section, unable to contain their enthusiasm. They were appreciative to the artist for honouring and respecting their customs!
Unfortunately, Selena Gomez was chastised by a Hindu organisation in 2013 for wearing a bindi with her western attire. It was during a performance at the MTV Movie Awards when Selena sang her famous song, Come & Get It.
President of the Universal Society of Hinduism, Rajan Zed, had told WENN: “The bindi on the forehead is an ancient tradition in Hinduism and has religious significance. It is also sometimes referred to as the third eye and the flame, and it is an auspicious religious and spiritual symbol. It is not meant to be thrown around loosely for seductive effects or as a fashion accessory aiming at mercantile greed. Selena should apologise and then she should get acquainted with the basics of world religions.”
