Selena Gomez was a highlight of the weekend’s NewNowNext awards, in which celebrities are celebrated for such highly sought-after talents as having the best new hairdo, being the ‘most addictive reality star’ and having the ‘hottest, sexiest ink.’ Oh yeah. This is the important stuff, folks. Gomez rocked up on the red carpet wearing a pair of leather-look trousers and a peplum top. You thought the peplum look was on its way out, but you were wrong.

Selena wasn’t the only star to make a show at the awards, either. Kesha arrived looking cool in a mint green, vintage style dress and her long blond fringe almost covering her eyes. She’s obviously been paying attention to the grunge styles currently flooding the catwalk and went for the ‘if you squint, I look a lot like Courtney Love’ vibe. Black Eyed Peas’ Fergie was there, too, hiding her bump, her bump, her lovely baby bump, under an Oriental style black dress. 

Jake Shears of Scissors Sisters was also there, with Kylie Minogue. The pint-sized Aussie popster landed the New Now Next Dance Floor Hero award, a fitting tribute to an artist whose career has successfully spanned several decades and one of few who actually managed to make a credible switch from ‘soap opera actress’ to ‘pop star’ with relative ease. Jake, who is a close friend of Kylie’s presented the award to her on the night.
