Happy Birthday, Selena Gomez! Today, July 22, is the starlet’s 27th birthday. And to celebrate we’re taking a look back at her wild fashion evolution.
Kicking off her career as a child on Barney & Friends, the actress soon became a Disney Channel star as the face of Wizards of Waverly Place. This level of stardom meant lots of events to dress up for during her young teenage years. It was during these mid-2000’s events that Gomez showed off her youthful sense of style. Think skinny jeans with long tanks and Converse sneakers for the more causal awards shows and fit-and-flare skirt dresses for the fancier occasions.
As she grew up, she went on to become one of the hottest celebrities on any red carpet she walked. Always maintaining a sense of elegance, she played around with different added vibes, donning edgier styles with dark makeup and sleek hair, as well as sexier designs that incorporated tasteful cutouts and curve-hugging fits. Through this slight and smart transition, the young woman evolved into a fierce and confident leading lady — and style icon. In fact, the “I Can’t Get Enough” singer cemented herself as a Hollywood fashionista so much that she became the face of Coach in 2016, going on to help create pieces for the designer brand.
In honor of the multi-talented A-lister’s birthday, keep scrolling to see her incredible fashion evolution from her time as a graphic-tee-clad youngster to her near goddess-like turn on the Met Gala red carpet.
