Proving that looking good is the best revenge, the 20-year-old star hit the 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards on Monday night in New York City, where she stole the red carpet show in her first public appearance since splitting from the teen idol, wearing a steamy, white hot dress and flashing several mega-watt smiles, and RadarOnline.com has the photos.
Gomez, who is featured on the cover of Glamour’s December 2012 issue, looked confident and cool in a cleavage happy Giambattista Valli silk peplum dress paired with nude patent leather Rupert Sanderson heels.
Despite the dissolution of her nearly two-year long relationship, the UNICEF ambassador, who was honored with the Independent Spirit Award was beaming the entire evening as she mingled with other celebrities like Ethan Hawke, Lena Dunham and famed photographer Annie Liebovitz.
“Speechless…So many powerful women here tonight. So inspired,” Gomez tweeted from the event.
However, it was the final straw when Gomez saw photos of her boyfriend backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last week, getting cozy with scantily clad supermodels.
