Selena Gomez was in full bloom at her inaugural Rare Impact Fund Benefit on Wednesday, wearing a hand-embroidered purple dress from designer Rahul Mishra.

With loosely sculptural pieces resembling a lush flower’s petals, the floral minidress was comprised of thousands of meticulously placed amethyst-colored sequins that flowed over the star’s shoulders and neck and cascaded down to mid-thigh.

Gomez hosted the gala event, “A Night of Radiance & Reflection,” in Los Angeles, with all tickets and other proceeds going to support the Rare Impact Fund, an organization she started in July 2020 with a goal to “expand access to mental health services and education for young people around the world,” according to the fund’s website.

The fund was started in collaboration with her beauty line, Rare Beauty, from which 1% of all sales are donated to the fund. And ahead of the event, Gomez released an Instagram video confirming that on October 10, World Mental Health Day, all proceeds from sales of Rare Beauty at Sephora stores would benefit the fund, which expects to raise $100 million within the next 10 years.

“It is an issue that has become very close to my heart,” Gomez said in a CNN article for World Mental Health Day in 2020.

“I try to use my voice to help reduce the stigma associated with talking about mental health, and to encourage people to celebrate their uniqueness.”
