Last time we saw a celebrity dress up in bondage-style boots and a short dress, things didn't go so well. But kudos to Selena Gomez for bravely trying a similar style outside the "Late Show With David Letterman" on Wednesday, pairing her black sandal-boot thingys (that's the scientific term) by Brian Atwood with a short black Burberry trenchcoat.
Another brave move by Selena: wearing yet another bindi on her forehead. After performing at the MTV Movie Awards in an Indian-style costume complete with a bindi, Selena was chastised by Hindu leaders who demanded she apologize for appropriating the religious symbol.
See Selena's bold look below and tell us what you think. Is the boots-and-bindi ensemble edgy or simply over-the-edge?
Do you miss the old Selena?
