Selena Gomez Styles Up Elle Magazine

Cover Girl Selena Gomez
Elle USA July 2012

Singer, actress and the envy of Bieber fans everywhere, Selena Gomez sheds her Disney darling image in July's issue of Elle Magazine. The 19-year-old star grows up glamourous in an alluring range of seductive designer wear and red hot Dior Rouge in this beach inspired shoot. 

On the cover Selena is dressed in an exquisite sheer black mesh Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 dress, adorned with gold floral appliqués.

A romantic seaside look by virtue of a Jil Sander blush pink bustier tea-length dress. A pair of pointy-toe Jimmy Choo heels defies the myth that pink and red can't be worn together. 

Offsetting the natural sandy background, Selena dons a metallic chain-mail Yves Saint Laurent dress with very low neckline and leather belt.

An unconventional mix of pieces for a star of many talents. Selena wears a digital print silk georgette dress in white and purple by Prabal Gurung. The outfit is styled with leather Herve Leger harness belt, as well as an outré pair of red fishnet Alta Dentelle open-toe boots by Christian Louboutin.

A day at the beach has never been more stylish...Selena heats it up in a ruby red stretch dress with peplum frill from Lanvin. A peek of her neon orange Manolo Blahnik heels can be seen to the right. Her chunky rope necklace is also by Lanvin, with gold and diamond angled earrings by Dean Harris.

Selena sports a racy ensemble that includes a vivid orange strapless Vera Wang bra, paired with a blue and white striped skinny pants and roped belt by Marni. It's a pity that we couldn't see more of her gorgeous multicoloured Brian Atwood heels in this photo shoot. They deserve a page of their own, don't you think?

Selena wears an embroidered Fabergé-designed Balmain sweater, styled with a mini skirt by Mugler. I prefer this top on the model, when worn with trousers.

Which is your favourite of Selena's looks from this shoot?

Wow, I have always loved Selena and considered her as a huge fashion inspiration. All of the photos above are wonderful, it's impossible for me to choose just one look... my top three would probably be the first two looks and the red peplum one :)

Hey, Sam!
Actually, I'm not sure if I can think of Selena as a grown-up, yet. To me, she still seems to have links with her Disney persona. In that line, I love her pose and everything around her Prabal Gurung look. Also love her with the Jill Sander's. As to me, I could certainly do with that amazing Balmain top!!
Have a wonderful one, sweetie!

I love that you always show the runway version of what the person is wearing. Selena looks amazing in the YSL chain mail dress.

Cara said...

I almost don't recognize Selena in some of these pictures, she's grown up so much! I love her in the YSL dress, Lanvin dress and the Balmain sweater. You are so right, those Brian Atwood shoes need their own shoot, absolutely beautiful!

Denise said...

First of all, you are NOW back, not some days ago, like I thought! It's so good!
Second, great to show her, and the outfits... wow! My favorite was that fabulous YSL dress! The Brian Atwood shoes are great and the Balmain sweatr, my style! (I love prints!)
She looks very sweet!

Rikki said...

the cover picture is the best cz i love that dress! and the red lip looks great with it:) x

Anonymous said...

While I"m not crazy about her photos (she seems so posed and not natural at all)...I'm CRAZY about the fashion! I love, love, love all the historical references that designers made in their recent collections this year, and it's fun to see the different historical influences combined in one photo shoot.

rolala said...

Selena does look all grown up in Elle. I really like all the pretty looks they styled her in. That Jil Sander dress is too pretty!

Thanks dear! I'm hoping it will heal soon too.

Audrey (hkittygirl) said...

Your Elle has a different cover than mine! :o

Mine has Selena wearing the Balmain sweater with a bright yellow background. Anyways, the Lanvin dress looks amazing on her and I love the Prabal Gurung SS 2012 show, so it was great to see her wearing that too. :)

Sootjeelina said...

I love all of these looks! Especially the D&G dress and the Balmain sweater, and I must say I like it beter on Selena. Maybe also because she's a little bit more tanned than the model
