Selena Gomez was named one of TIME’s Best Dressed Of 2013! 8. Selena Gomez in Atelier Versace Though she was ultimately overshadowed by another former Disney star’s antics at this year’s VMAs, Selena Gomez pulled off a more elusive feat: she looked sexy and decidedly grown-up without seeming sleazy.
This Versace gown was provocative in all the right ways, with a peel-away design that exposed a corset top, and landed Gomez on the sartorial map. She expertly navigated the fine line between revealing and showing too much. Along with her sleek hair and dark makeup, Gomez isn’t hanging out on Waverly Place any longer.
Selena revealed about her experience meeting fashion queen Donatella Versace: ‘It was surreal because I got to geek out instead of having to be very pristine. It was my total ‘Princess Diaries moment. I’ve always been an Italian girl, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace. They capture the body really well. And I love Marchesa.
On Selena’s fashion line: ‘It’s been really fun. They’ve been super open to letting me have a say, which isn’t always the case. We made [Adidas] edgier than my line, because I wanted it to be a little darker. It’s stuff I’d wear; I’d rock those leggings, for sure. And their beanies, I wanted every color.’
