When you’re young and experimenting with fashion, anything goes. A pair of trousers layered over skinny jeans and a denim vest is definitely not a winning combination, but her cute attitude makes it fun. But don’t try this at home.

The Hollywood vixen? This silk drape number is very va-va-voom. The low cleavage and leg slit suggest sexiness, but the overall effect is extremely sophisticated.

Unfortunately, this is a little too matronly for her. The lacy overlay in gold is a little rococo; as a top with jeans this would have worked, but it’s too over the top. The hair and makeup are great though.

Here we can see Gomez grow up a bit and try new looks. The cutout design with corset inserts feels a little dated, but very playful for the time she wore it. For the VMAs, this was another day at the office.

Now she’s having fun. The graphic corset, blonde hair, western belt and cut-out leather pants result in a tougher yet elegant look. It’s good to see her explore the different sides of her fashion persona.

High-fashion Selena is definitely a winner. The voluminous shoulder is perfectly balanced with the straight line of the dress and the smooth hair. And what’s not to love about a diamond choker?

The feathered hair, red lip and smoky eye give off big old Hollywood. White dresses with trails in general can look bridal. But the cut-out bra top and black straps keep it away from wedding bells and into Met Gala territory.

Maybe she was inspired by her good friend Britney Spears with this red vinyl dress. The shirt collar gives the dress a nice tension between nerd and rebel — but on Gomez the result is just cool girl.
