For Selena Gomez, New York City sidewalks are basically a runway. The star was recently spotted looking absolutely stunning in an orange midi dress by Self-Portrait (opens in new tab) with a sweetheart neckline, long sleeves and lace panels on either side.

Gomez paired the eye-catching dress with simple beige pointed stilettos, and wore her hair down in long wavy locks.

But the star didn't dress up for a fancy red carpet event—she was actually on her way to Soho restaurant Serendipity3 (opens in new tab), known for its over-the-top desserts, where she is a part owner and investor.

They recently launched the "Selena sundae," and the star demonstrated how to make it at home last week in an Instagram video (opens in new tab) posted by the restaurant. "She’s literally so SWEET!" one wordplay-loving commenter said. Can't disagree there.

Serendipity3 also posted a sweet photo (opens in new tab) of Gomez looking lovingly at her sundae while wearing the famous orange dress. "It’s always a treat when @selenagomez visits! Thanks for stopping by and enjoying a bite of your namesake sundae. #theselenasundae," the caption read.

The sundae in question features the ice cream flavor Gomez imagined, Cookies & Cream Remix (opens in new tab), as well as banana, Oreos, fudge, whipped cream and pink sprinkles. Part of the proceeds from each sundae sold benefit the Rare Impact Fund (opens in new tab), from Gomez' charity Rare Beauty.

"Mental health (opens in new tab) is personal for me," Gomez writes on the website (opens in new tab). "Figuring out how to manage my own mental health hasn't always been easy, but it’s something I am constantly working on and I hope I can help others work on, too."

Amazing fashion, ice cream and a good cause? Yes, please.
