Selena Gomez Sizzles in InStyle Magazine

Cover Girl Selena Gomez
InStyle Magazine
June 2013

Long gone are the Disney days that made Selena Gomez one of the most famous young faces on the planet. She depicts a more sultry and mature side to her style in the June 2013 issue of Instyle USA. The 20-year-old star wears a few hot-off the Spring 2013 runway looks for the magazine's 'On The Road' themed photo shoot.

There were two covers shot for the issue, one of them with Selena elegantly dressed in a strapless striped silk gazaar ballgown by Oscar de la Renta. A white rose and gold necklace and fuchsia NARS 'Schiap' lipstick enhanced her look. This cover was presented only to subscribers of the magazine.

The cover that Instyle eventually settled for to place on the newsstands was this one, with Selena posing in a navy and black striped strapless jumpsuit with slit-V neck by Stella McCartney. I much prefer the first cover choice with the striped ballgown. 

Selena masters the fully printed trend in a contoured digital print bustier jumpsuit by Kenzo, clinched in by a BCBG Max Azria metallic belt.

A Peter Pilotto dress always makes a bold patterned statement, as seen on Selena, who wears a criss-cross strap halter neck dress with cut-out front and embellished skirt from the designers' Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

Selena takes some time out in a saffron jersey tank with matching skirt by Akris. On her seat is an eye-catching multicoloured Fendi lycra studded bag.

Heating up the lens, Selena is styled in a bright red Fendi swimsuit, accessorized by a glass, stone and gold Etro necklace, a floral raffia bag by Dolce & Gabbana and printed heels.

Road side style has never been this glamourous. Selena stars in a Pacific blue silk organza Stella McCartney dress with sheer white panelling. She carries a cornflower blue embroidered polyester bomber jacket by 3.1 Phillip Lim. Her blue-hued ensemble is completed by silk satin ankle-strap wedge heels by Burberry Prorsum.

What do you think of Selena's photo spread for Instyle Magazine? 
And which cover do you prefer, the Striped ballgown or the Stella McCartney jumpsuit?

Morning Sam! Interesting feature today, I havent seen the covers or the editorial yet so thanks for sharing! Have to admit that I am not a big fan of her but I admire her natural and fresh beauty, she is really stunning with everything and reminds me a bit of the singer Inna:) Btw, the cover with the striped gown is my fav, that dress is beyond the word stunning! I like also the looks on the editorial's shooting, in particular the floral printed jumpsuit, the swimsuit by Fendi and the Phillip Lim bomber!:) Have a great day dear, big kisses! xo

Trenchcoats to Tiaras said...

Oh, this is such a lovely shoot! I really love her in the Peter Pilotto dress, it's so gorgeous on her. I think I like the ballgown cover feel better, but I also really like the fact they picked the jumpsuit one over it anyways, just because of the way so many Americans are used to seeing the stars is, well, like that, and I think it's a good step in how magazines are marketing their covers with these people. They're not in some sort of flowing ballgown, when most people don't manage to wear those after college - it's a superfancy expensive jumpsuit, yes, but those are a trend that people can find and afford and wear, and it humanizes her a little more to people than the gown (smiling helps too). Fashion is art, and art is not always pure realism, but I think it's important to pay attention to what and how and why you're promoting something in a certain manner, and I think the thought behind it is kind of clear - the gown is a traditional kind of shot - she's sitting pretty, she's not smiling...the jumpsuit is much less traditional, and it's a different sort of pose, and an active face. (Maybe it's also indicative of InStyle's steady work to continue to be competitive as a print magazine? The cover is kind of how people perceive the brand, and in the subtlest ways, they could be trying to link the perception of Selena's image as active and open and friendly, via her pose, to their magazine's brand itself...or I could be going wildly nuts in analysis, considering how little sleep I got, your pick...)

Also, Gabrielle Aplin sounds absolutely lovely! She makes me think a little bit of Norah Jones or Amy Kuney. They're much lower pitched, but the feeling I get listening to them is similar, personally. I'll probably be unable to respond to your email till Thursday, by the way - work seems to be going nuts this week (a good thing but bad for my ability to be productive outside of work...)
