Selena Gomez Goes from Disney to Daring
The Incredible Transformation of Selena Gomez from Cutesy Disney Girl to Sultry Young Woman
It’s been a while since we seen Selena Gomez play Alex Russo in Disney’s Wizards of Waverley Place. Not only has the trajectory of her career changed, but so has her hair and makeup looks.
From health scares to public relationship issues, Selena has been through a lot over the past few years. Despite it all, she has not backed down and we love her for it! As Executive Producer of Netflix’s hit series, 13 Reasons Why, she is in the spotlight now more than ever. The series is about a young woman who committed suicide and left telling recordings behind. Apart from her production role, she collaborated with designer brands Coach and Puma, released a new single, and made a surprise appearance at Taylor Swift’s Reputation Tour. In other words, Selena Gomez is booked and busy, honey! With drastic life changes, people tend tend to manifest outwardly with a change to their outward appearance. Ever cut your hair after a bad breakup? Then you know where we are going with this. Scroll down to see some of our favorite looks from Selena over the years.
2014 American Music Awards
For the 2014 American Music Awards, Selena was demure and gave us young Penelope Cruz vibes. She pulled her shiny hair into a low bun, with a middle part; this drew attention to her blood orange matte lips. All around, her makeup was classic and clean – she filled her brows in lightly and wore just enough mascara for her brown eyes to pop!
2015 American Music Awards
Dare we say that Selena Gomez is the queen of American Music Awards show glam?! The following year, Selena was smoking hot, period! She wore a backless, wine colored, sequined halter dress that was two seconds away from a wardrobe malfunction! Selena kept the drama going by rocking a metallic red eye, long lashes, and nude glossy lips for a sex kitten vibe. We can’t think of any other way she could’ve brought this look together than with her hair bone straight and part down the middle. Hot!
2016 American Music Awards
Ok, either Selena Gomez never misses an American Music Awards show or we are clearly biased! In any event, Selena wore a signature look of some sort for her – a middle part – this time with a low ponytail curled loosely at the end. Full brows, a subtle gold eye, rose gold cheeks, and peach glossy lips gave her an all around luminous glow. It’s our favorite look so far!
The monochromatic makeup look is here! Selena channeled vintage vibes with a modern twist with a shoulder grazing, wavy bob. Adding even more edge to her look, she matched her eye shadow and blush to her berry lips for an all-around romantic yet mysterious moment.
FW2017 New York Fashion Week
Selena Gomez sure loves a vintage look, doesn’t she? While making her rounds for FW2017 New York Fashion Week, she was every bit a 60s dream! She pulled her hair into a half up/half down do that the iconic Brigitte Bardot wore often. To keep this look soft and flirty, she wore baby pink eye shadow, loads of mascara, and pink, glossy lips!
