The Disney Channel alum accessorized with sparkling chandelier earrings that brushed the tops of her shoulders, as well as a silver statement ring.

Selena let her natural beauty shine by opting for a minimal makeup look that consisted of a shimmering brown smokey eye and glossy nude lip.

She strolled the star-studded red carpet in a pair of black sandals that showed off her bright white pedicure.

Julia Roberts is slated to receive the first-ever Icon Award at the Academy Museum Gala.

When it was held for the first time last September, the star-studded event managed to rake in a whopping $ 11 million for the new museum, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Other honorees this year include Doctor Strange star Tilda Swinton, who is being presented with the Visionary Award, which honors ‘an artist or scholar whose extensive oeuvre has advanced the art of cinema.’

The Vantage Award celebrating ‘an artist or scholar who has helped to contextualize and challenge dominant narratives around cinema’ is going to Steve McQueen, the director of 12 Years A Slave and Shame.

Parasite producer Miky Lee, who also happens to be the vice chair of the Academy Museum board, will receive the Pillar Award in honor of her ‘exemplary leadership and support for the Academy Museum.’

Oscar-winning actresses Lupita Nyong’o and Halle Berry are chairing the gala with TV impresario Ryan Murphy and successful horror producer Jason Blum.

Former TCM host Jacqueline Stewart, who was named head of the Academy Museum in July, showered praise on Julia earlier this year when it was announced she would be presented with the icon award.

‘Over the course of her expansive and renowned career, Julia has embodied iconic characters and memorable roles. We are thrilled to be honoring her continued excellence in the industry and contribution to the arts, ‘she gushed.

‘We are deeply grateful to Julia, Miky, Steve, and Tilda, to Rolex, and to our co-chairs and host committee for making our second annual Gala an evening to remember.’

The Academy Museum opened last year just four days after the first gala, igniting a storm of controversy over its political slant.

Critics slammed the museum for emphasizing the contributions of various minorities to the American film industry while all but ignoring the white Jewish immigrants from Central and Eastern Europe who played a major role in creating Hollywood.

The museum responded to the blowback by announcing this March that they will be adding a permanent exhibition highlighting the Jewish history of the movie business.
