You’ve watched her on the Disney Channel, you’ve seen her cuddling up to pop music’s biggest star of the moment, Justin Bieber, now see her in all of her glamorous glory on the cover of ELLE‘s July issue. At only 19, Selena Gomez is taking the world by storm as a rising mogul in music, acting, and fashion. It’s no surprise that she was chosen to be ELLE’s latest cover girl and Hollywood’s latest “it” girl as she poses for the “au natural,” beach-themed shoot which features the multi-talented young lady in a way audiences have never seen her before.
ELLE features Gomez all grown up as she sheds the teenybopper image and poses for sultry photos near the water taken by talented photographer, Carter Smith. Creative director, Joe Zee, dolled the actress up in a mesh corset dress by Dolce and Gabbana and pairs it up with free, flowing hair, a sexy pout and jewelry like earrings from Dean Harris, a pendant locket from Tiffany and Co., bracelet by Janis Savitt and heart ring by David Yurman. Gomez shows off her perfect frame in a myriad of striking outfits such as a red Lanvin dress as well as the summer’s latest fad, bandeau tops and pants, in other photos within the spread. To top off her sexy look, the singer/actress is left fresh-faced in simple and clean makeup to celebrate the inner beauty that this photo shoot seems to be centered around.
