Selena Gomezattended Vogue magazine’s bash for designer Alberta Ferretti’s pre-Fall collection, an exclusive runway show and seated dinner for about 150 at LA’s Chateau Marmont on Thursday.
Rocking a teal, lacy cocktail dress with a plunging neckline, Gomez arrived early and skipped most of the modest red carpet outside the exclusive hotel, opting instead to take her prime seat in the converted lobby.
With only a female handler behind her, Gomez sat alone in the empty front row before the show contently people-watching the likes of Chelsea Handler, Kate Beckinsale and husband Len Wiseman, Olivia Munn, Justin Bartha, Anna Kendrick, Rachel Zoe and Brittany Snow.
Though Selena skipped a candlelit dinner held on the hotel’s tented patio, Gomez insisted on lingering a few moments to pose for photos with Ferretti before bounding into a waiting car.

Question: What are your ups and downs of being a celebrity?
Answer: The ups are getting to meet cool people like you. And I get to travel and meet my fans and do what I love, which is very important to me. And the downs are it gets a little crazy sometimes for me. And sometimes I feel like I can’t be normal and people sometimes, like grown men following me with pictures. It’s very weird. I don’t like that part.
Q: Selena, it’s great that you are the youngest ambassador for UNICEF. Can you tell us about your experiences you have had and what you have learned from your travels?
A: Being a part of UNICEF is good for me. I feel I’m able to use my voice and my platform and my audience to educate them on issues that are going on around the world. I got to go to Africa. I got to learn how the families live there and how they view life and talk to them and they live in very different lives than we do and I think it’s really fun if we all knew what was going on in the world.
