Selena Gomez is an American actress and singer who won legions of young fans as the star of the Disney television series “Wizards of Waverly Place” and as a pop vocalist. Gomez, who was named after popular Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez, was raised in suburban Dallas. Inspired by her mother, an amateur actress, Gomez tried out for a role on the PBS children’s television series “Barney & Friends” and as a result, appeared regularly on the program from 2000 to 2004.
After making her big-screen debut in the family movie “Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over,” she auditioned for the Disney Channel, which eventually led to a guest spot on the TV series “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.” In 2007, Gomez was cast as Alex Russo, a mischievous tomboy with magical powers, on a new Disney sitcom, “Wizards of Waverly Place.” The show, which she also sang the theme song for, became an instant hit among the pre-teen crowd, and she earned favorable comparisons to the channel’s leading child star, Miley Cyrus.
As of 2017, Gomez has sold over seven million albums and 22 million singles worldwide, according to Billboard. She has received various accolades and was named Billboard’s Woman of the Year in 2017. Time magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2020. She has a large following on social media and is the most followed musician and actress on Instagram. Gomez’s other ventures include makeup, clothing, handbags, and fragrance lines. She has worked with many charitable organizations and served as a UNICEF ambassador since age 17.
Gomez’s red carpet looks
Favoring super-feminine, high-glamour dresses by designers like Versace and Dolce & Gabbana, the former Disney star, and our all-time girl crush never fails to impress with her style. Gomez is the one convincing us to add a skirt suit to our summer wardrobe and in 2020, the actress went to work in a chic matching set from affordable fashion brand Mango while promoting season 2 of “Only Murders in the Building” at the 2022 ABC Disney Upfront in New York.
The multitalented star rocked a chic mini skirt suit, featuring a light orange cropped blazer and a coordinating skirt. She paired the polished outfit with a white Wolford bodysuit, gold Mejuri hoops, and pointed-toe Stuart Weitzman pumps. Gomez’s exact Mango skirt suit is available to shop now, and altogether, the matching set is for just $160; we love it when celebs mix and match affordable fashion.
The top came in a V-neck silhouette, featuring faux-pearl buttons, and Gomez completed the look with a matching miniskirt, achieving a ’60s mod vibe with her white satin pointed-toe heels. To finish the ensemble, she worked with her stylist Kate Young and together they accentuated the outfit with Mejuri jewels and a white Wolford bodysuit underneath. As for her makeup, she chose light yellow and orange hues to match the sunny look, while celebrity hairstylist Marissa Marino created a chic updo with curls.
Gomez is a pro at mixing high and low, as this isn’t the first time she has worn a pastel-hued Mango set for an appearance. In fact, she also rocked another Mango look for the Deadline Contenders Television event back in April. The starlet opted for a pink Mango cutout shift dress with a matching blazer on top that was similar to this peach variation.
