Olympic Celebs

  • Selena Gomez and Ronda Rousey Stun in Black Dresses on SNL

    This past week's Saturday Night Live show was full of girl power, with two of the biggest women celebrities hosting and performing on the show. While the East Coast was suffering from a major snow storm, nothing stopped MMA athlete and former bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey from showing her acting chops, and actress and musician Selena Gomez from performing some totally sizzling numbers (melting that snow and ice right away!). When opening up the show, Ronda explained that it was her first time on live TV without being hit in the face (can we say badass??), and Selena showed just how great of a singer she is with stripped-down medleys of "Good for You" and "Same Old Love."

    We loved every minute of watching them on the SNL stage... and we especially loved all of the sexy dresses the two wore throughout the show! While Ronda was a staple part of the entire SNL show that night, constantly changing outfits and dresses, our favorite looks from both celebs came when it was time for Selena to take the stage for her performances. During this time, they both wore totally sleek and sexy black gowns that had us dreaming of prom. Check out what they wore (and Selena's performance!) in the video below. Then, read on to see how you can get their looks for prom.

    Both of them looked amazing, right? Get their looks with the dresses below - you'll find two choices for each celeb style. Continue reading

    The gymnast looked so gorgeous in this two-toned Sherri Hill lace dress! The dramatic high-low skirt and floor-sweeping train showed off her bod so well, and we were especially amazed by how ripped her arms looked!

    Her sleek bob and red lips were the perfect finishing touches to her look - so elegant and timeless, and definitely gold medal worthy.
