While American actress/singer Selena Gomez may continue to cause a double furore with her on-stage and off-stage bindi-wearing and the ol’ is-she-isn’t-she over reigniting that love flame with The Beiber, we’ve been gawping at just how stylish she’s been looking of late.
Most young US starlets have their fair share of scary outfit skeletons in their closet – and 20-year-old Selena isn’t exempt – but unlike some of her contemporaries and Spring Breaker’s co-stars, she’s managed to break out into a all-grown-up new look quite seamlessly.
From Philip Lim’s coveted floral-slogan vests, to a Viktor & Rolf sweatshirt to Brian Atwood knee high gladiators, Gomez has been pulling some designer – but slightly avant-garde - tricks out of her (Dolce) bag and we like it. So, who is it down to?
Well, Basia Richard has been her stylist for the past five years, which means she be present since those tricky mid-teen to hone Selena’s look from teen princess into sultry siren. "We didn't force anything, this was just natural progression," Richard told E! earlier this year, "She is doing a more adult movie (Spring Breakers), but she is still staying true to herself. She definitely evolved into this beautiful, sophisticated little actress."
If we’re completely honest, we still don’t know a jot about Selena’s singing career (we promise we’ll look it up), but she is giving majorly good outfit and that’s all we ask for. So scroll through the gallery above why dontcha and check out the girl’s style-volution for yourself…
