Selena Gomez's Disney years are well behind her, and her wardrobe proves it. She has gone from sweet teen to daring fashion star, and is someone whose outfit choices we always anticipate.
We take a look at her transformation from a small-screen Disney actress to a full-fledged fashion icon.
The Disney Era
Selena, who got her major break playing Alex Russo in the Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place, had teenager style down pat. Selena's early style was very much the in thing during the mid-2000s: Think colorful sneakers, denim vests, and mini skirts.
On the red carpet, Selena favored bright mini dresses perfect for any teen star. Seen in a neon pink pleated dress for the Teen Choice Awards, Selena was every young girl's fashion icon. Naturally, as a Disney star, she also had to maintain a good girl image.
Pop Princess in the Making
In her early days as a pop star, Selena showcased girly, feminine looks that screamed Disney princess. However, her looks soon began to change, becoming edgier and more revealing with each tour and album.
For her most recent tour, Selena upped the ante by slipping on sheer bedazzled bodysuits, not unlike those worn by Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé. Way to show off that toned body, Sel!
Let's not forget the super sleek all-black looks from the Revival tour!
Sexy Red Carpet Siren
On the red carpet, Selena has blossomed from a young teen actress to a certified style star, selecting avant-garde looks that established her place in the spotlight. At the 2015 American Music Awards, Selena turned heads in a bold sequined dress that had the lowest back.
For an appearance in Las Vegas, Selena referenced Old Hollywood icons in a liquid-like satin slip dress with a leg-baring slit. Safe to say that Selena had grown out of her Disney darling image!
Sel's a certified designer muse, too. Previously a Louis Vuitton ambassador, Selena's currently a Coach endorser, so it was only appropriate that she wore the brand to this year's Met Gala. In a pale pink slip-like gown by Stuart Vevers, Selena was easily one of the night's best dressed.
Street Style Star
Selena's off-duty outfits are just as strong as her red carpet ensembles. Gone are the typical teenybopper fare; in their place are thigh-high boots, short skirts, sexy AF bodysuits, and killer sunglasses. Selena has definitely earned her high-fashion stripes.
A fashion girl who pulls off designer pieces with ease, Selena has also become more experimental in the wardrobe department. A dinosaur sweater might seem childish on paper, but when paired with raw cropped denims and tasteful accessories, it certainly works.
Even at their most laidback, her OOTDs are always worth emulating. Expertly mixing decades and trends in one look, Selena makes a case for millennial dressing in a fuzzy crop top, skinny jeans, and pink sling bag.
