COVER: SELENA GOMEZ COVERS ELLE US JULY 2012
Posted on June 8, 2012
Don’t get me wrong, I love and appreciate Joe Zee’s styling here…I just don’t like it on Selena Gomez.
The ex-disney star is now all grown up as she poses for Carter Smith’s camera somewhat provocatively in a beautiful Dolce & Gabbana corset. Check out the alternative cover here.
We all know Balmain is #LIFE… but just not on this little lady. I haven’t yet come to terms with the fact she is in fact a young woman, just as I still see Justin Bieber as a child and not a man (no shade intended!). I personally feel like this type of styling on Selena is almost too much, too adult and needs to be taken down a notch or two to make the transition believable.
I am however glad that Elle scrapped the big “SELENA” scrawled across the centre of the cover as it completely destroyed the beautiful Autumn/Winter 2012 top and made the whole thing look like a teen magazine. I personally wouldn’t have chosen the yellow background, black fonts and masthead coupled with this glorious pieces of womenswear, however I can’t deny it works.
The Issue is available in US stores now.
