Surprise, surprise: Selena Gomez was all smiles Sunday night at Variety’s pre-Emmys party. It was refreshing to see the sometimes-glum singer-actress actually looking happy for a change. Maybe the upbeat red silk jumpsuit Gomez had on lifted her spirits and took her mind off her wayward ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. The high-neck, long-sleeve vintage-y get-up was a nice change from all the skin and cleavage exposed around town.

So are jumpsuits back? Yes, according to local fashion blogger Annie Vazquez: “What goes around always comes back around, and this fall it’s about ’90s minimalism and menswear-inspired looks,” she says. “The jumpsuit is a 1970s creation, but it was big trend in the late ’90s with everyone from Kate Moss to Britney Spears rocking one.”

Gomez’s outfit happened to be from Valentino’s fall/winter collection, and a similar style retails on the Italian designer’s website for ( cough!) $1,788, which is actually 40 percent off its original price, $2,980.

Channel a Studio 54 babe yourself at more-affordable places (such as Forever 21, H&M and Target). Just remember, jumpsuits are a little more time-consuming when you need to use the facilities.

All in the name of fashion.
