Fame10 Fashion Evolution: Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez seems to only make headlines for her rocky on-again off-again relationship with Justin Bieber. However, after going through some of her red carpet looks, we think she deserves some recognition for her amazing sense of fashion. Even though she’s only in her early 20s, Selena has proven herself to be quite sophisticated when it comes to her style. Unlike her fashionably-challenged ex boyfriend, Gomez knows what looks good and she can accessorize like it’s nobody’s business. She definitely deserves credit for her fabulous sense of style, so what better way to do that than by dedicating a slideshow to her fashion evolution!

That same year, Gomez launched her music career with the single “Everything Is Not What It Seems.”

While these two were both filming in Vancouver, they were spotted out and about together, acting very much like a couple. The relationship wasn’t meant to be, however. These two broke up after only a couple of months of dating.

41st Annual NAACP Image Awards – 2010

Selena wore a white, strapless dress to the 41st Annual NAACP Image Awards. Although she looks lovely, the dress seems a bit too bridal. We expect her to wear something like this to her wedding. In 2010, Gomez released her sophomore album A Year Without Rain with her band, The Scene. “My influences, especially with this record, would be Cheryl Cole from the U.K. and Katy Perry,” she told Access Hollywood. “The way that they carry themselves and their music styles were very inspiring for me so I kind of made my own version of that.”

Later that year, Selena Gomez would begin her tumultuous on-off relationship with pop sensation Justin Bieber but, at this event, she was spotted looking chummy with her co-star from “Monte Carlo,” Cory Monteith. These two seemed to be on the verge of becoming a real couple, but nothing ever seemed to materialize.

She completed the look with champagne-colored Jimmy Choo ‘Vibe’ peep-toe heels and gold earrings. Even though her style improved considerably, her taste in men didn’t. Gomez was still involved in an on-again off-again relationship with Justin Bieber.

Alliance for Children’s Rights’ 22st Annual Dinner – 2014

The budding movie star looked beautiful in a little black dress at the Alliance for Children’s Rights 22st Annual Dinner. 2014 has been an eventful year for Selena Gomez. After canceling the Australian-Asian leg of her Stars Dance Tour, she secretly checked into rehab for two weeks. According to her representative, it wasn’t for substance abuse. Gomez is supposed to be releasing a greatest hits album later this year, so hopefully the year will end on high note for her.
