You have to see Selena Gomez’s very first AMAs appearance back in 2009! From then until now it’s wild how much the former Disney darling has changed, but our love for Gomez’s fashion is still as strong as it was way back when.

Sunday marked the 2016 American Music Awards and the 24-year-old singer made her first red carpet debut since revealing she had lupus related depression this summer and of course she looked flawless. Gomez’s fabulous fashion statement — she rocked a bright red gown — got us thinking about what she wore to her first AMAs.

So, what did she wear to her 2009 AMAs debut you ask? Well, it had a LOT of sparkle and it was pretty fabulous.

Plus, Gomez rocked a short ‘do, which helped to keep all eyes on the shiny ensemble.

So, what did Gomez wear to this year’s award show?

We especially loved her red dress choice and natural makeup used to compliment it.
