Is That You Selena Gomez? The Disney Star Gets A Hackney Makeover For I-D Magazine

We're used to seeing Selena Gomez drenched in sequins and drowning in feathers - this Disney princess has Julien MacDonald on speed dial. So we barely recognised this East London Selena in her stormy, all-grey i-D Magazine editorial which landed in our inboxes this afternoon.

She has been given a London-over for the Street Issue, slipping into Margaret Howell knits and a mannish John Varvatos coat and Marni tee. Selena travelled from Hollywood to Hackney, posing on the streets of London for her i-D editorial, shot by Scott Trindle and styled by Elgar Johnson. The cover gives Selena some serious style cred, as she is joining the likes of Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne, winking for the iconic fashion mag.

She might not look like a pop princess, but inside the mag Selena reminisces about one of the greats. Of course we're talking about Britney. She said: 'The Baby One More Time… concert was amazing. I sat all the way up in the nosebleeds and I could barely see her, but I remember it being the best day of my life. I had my hair in a ponytail and I knew all the words to the songs. I’ll always remember it'

So what does Selena have to say about her new stripped back look? 'I love doing shoots overseas. Actually being there and feeling the environment adds a realness to the shoot. It’s so easy to wear incredible, beautiful dresses and look super glamorous, because you have the power of Photoshop, but a shoot that’s really stripped-down and raw is really fun to do. I was being rained on, it was freezing, I was covered in a giant sweater and my hair was all over the place. I got to just be in that moment and feel like I was there.'

Back in June we asked the question - when did Selena Gomez get so cool? She has cleared out the 'eek' Disney outfits from her tweens, and replaced the sequin halternecks and ruffles with Kenzo sweaters, Brian Atwood knee high gladiators and Philip Lim’s coveted floral-slogan vests.
