Selena Gomez knows how to party in style, and she proved it as she marked her 31st birthday with a fabulous celebration alongside her closest friends. The Only Murders in the Building star hosted a huge bash that included A-list pals like Paris Hilton and Christina Aguilera, making it a night to remember. Gomez gave fans a glimpse of the festivities through a series of behind-the-scenes images she shared on Instagram on Saturday.
In the first photo, the actress and singer stunned in a chic strapless red mini dress adorned with floral applique, paired with elegant black strappy sandals and a classy up-do. The vibrant outfit perfectly complemented the joyful atmosphere of the party. Other snapshots captured Gomez dancing and striking poses with her guests, and the highlight of the evening was the moment when a giant birthday cake, complete with sparklers, was presented to the birthday girl.
One black-and-white picture showed Selena Gomez and Paris Hilton, 42, sharing a warm embrace. The heiress took to the comments section of Gomez’s post to share her love and well-wishes, writing, “Happy Birthday beautiful!😍 So much fun celebrating with you last night!🥰”
On her Instagram Story, Gomez shared another heartwarming photo of herself hugging the legendary Christina Aguilera. The image showcased the bond between the two stars, as they celebrated the special occasion together.
The birthday festivities continued with a private screening of the new Barbie movie. Gomez posted images of the movie about to play on a large screen, along with snapshots of her friends dressed in fabulous Barbie-themed pink outfits while enjoying the movie in cozy-looking chairs.
Following the screening, the group indulged in a delightful and intimate dinner, with Gomez posting photos on her Instagram story of the pink-clad crew seated around a table adorned with delicious food and drinks.
The birthday girl herself got into the spirit of the Barbie movie, dressing up in a bright pink ensemble, complete with matching lipstick, as she enjoyed the evening.
Earlier in the day, Selena Gomez celebrated her special day in a more traditional fashion by blowing out birthday candles on a rose-covered cake shaped like the letter “S.” In the photo she shared on Instagram, Gomez looked radiant in a baby-pink T-shirt, perfectly coordinating with her birthday cake and smoky eye look, possibly created using her Rare Beauty collection. The celebratory moment was made even more meaningful as Gomez expressed her gratitude for the work done by the Rare Impact Fund through her beauty brand, raising awareness and providing mental health services for young people.
“This is my true passion in life,” she shared, expressing her dedication to the cause. Instead of presents, Gomez encouraged her followers to donate to the Rare Impact Fund, reflecting her genuine desire to make a positive impact on mental health support.
