According to New York Post, the dress you see on Fake Selena is actually the one Lily James wore at the Met Gala in 2022. Yahoo! News mentioned that the picture was wildly popular on Twitter:
Still, over 22 million people viewed the image, and 392,900+ people liked it, a testament to Gomez’s popularity and how badly fans want to see her return to fashion’s biggest night.
