Modern fashion icons: Selena Gomez

Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer, best known for her portrayal of Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place and 3 platinum certified singles: Naturally, Who says and Love you like a love song. Her style ranges from casual tee and skinny jeans combinations to her outstanding red carpet gowns. What really deserves appreciation is the ease with which she makes transitions between those two, never failing to amaze us. With two weeks left until Selena steps out of her teenage years, I decided to present my list of her best style moments.


In November 2011, Selena was spotted walking down the streets of Paris holding hands with her boyfriend, Justin Bieber. She paired her short black skirt with a black and white heart scarf and a pair of thigh-high Pretty Polly House of Holland tights to keep herself warm in the Parisian autumn weather.


In October 2009, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift spent the evening together at Maggiano's Italian restaurant Little Italy and then Menchi's Frozen Yogurt for dessert. Gomez was rocking high street fashion- a red Urban Outfitters dress with a zipper in the front paired with an Urban Outfitters leather jacket, Shoe Bungalow boots and patterned tights. It goes without saying that red & black are her colours.


Last year, the Texan starlet hit the stage of Good Morning America to perform a few songs from her CD, When the sun goes down. She opted for a sleeveless top from Barney's in a trendy powder pink colour. If you open my closet, it does not take a genius to figure out that this colour is a must-have in my book. I have always loved its girliness, but now that I went back to being a brunette, I am pretty sure I will rock it even more often.


Selena was lighting up the red carpet at the 2008 Teen Vogue party in her black polka dot dress from Luella. The look was completed with a black sash tied at the waist and a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo slingback shoes. The combination of sheer fabric and polka dots is what totally won me over- it's the definition of 'classy', if you ask me.


At the 2011 People's Choice Awards, Selena stepped out on the red carpet wearing a high-low hem dress by Irina Shabayeva. To add some glamour, she accessorized it with Polki Allure Hoops by Isharya and gorgeous nude Christian Louboutin heels. It's a perfect choice if you want to stay chic and avoid being overdressed.


To say that Selena is a pretty girl is an understatement. The photoshoot for Elle Mexico totally took my breath away, as the 1970's inspired cover and sepia toned photos gave her a wonderful vintage feeling. Regardless of what she's wearing, Selena keeps turning heads- I can bet you that even if we made her go out in public wearing a potato sack, she would still look fabulous and put us all to shame. I have already expressed my love for beige and powder pink items multiple times- suffice it to say that I would more than gladly snag those pieces to stay in my wardobe forever.


On one of the shots from the newest Elle photoshoot, Gomez is seen laying on the beach wearing a pink bustier dress by Jil Sander paired with Jimmy Choo heels. The combination of pink & red looks simply amazing on her and I swear there's 'vintage chic' written all over this outfit.


Selena wore a Faberge-designed sweater from Balmain and paired it with a mini skirt by Mugler. While I absolutely despise the way it looks on the model, Selena's version immediately caught my eye. When worn as an oversize tunic by a beauty like Selena, it's a really sophisticated look.
