If you think of Selena Gomez and only think Disney’s darling, then stop right there. This pop star-slash-actress is quickly shedding those mouse ears and slipping into some of the hottest designer fashions out there today, not to mention making a splash with her own apparel line in Kmart. Fresh off the heels of the spicy and controversial new film, Spring Breakers, Selena has begun pounding the pavement promoting“Come & Get It,” the first single off her forthcoming solo album set to release later this year. Once known as the better half of global superstar Justin Bieber, Selena's no stranger to being in the news; however this time it’s her fashion that's making headlines. She's been dropping jaws all over airports and red carpets these days looking fabulous at almost every turn.
Subtlety, poise, and effortlessness are just some of a plethora of reasons why Selena Gomez is one to watch in fashion. Being such a young age it's sometimes easy to become a slave to fads and outlandish trends, but Selena stays true to her personality. She’s not afraid of color and experiments with a variety of prints and patterns. On red carpets she loves to eccentuates her waistline like she did at the premiere of Spring Breakers wearing Reem Acra (see slideshow). On the street she has a slightly more boho-like aesthetic, but dresses it up with trendy flats and high heels, dark black spectacles, sexy handbags, and accessories.
He may not be quite a household name yet, but with dashing good looks and the ability to make anybody around him swoon; Austin Butler is definitely one to watch, but not just for his physical features, his fashion's hot too. He’s the resident bad boy of the CW's new hit seriesThe Carrie Diaries, where he gets to sport '80s chic, retro attire. Think Feris Bueller. But in real life he's just a regular guy. Think James Dean. That is, a regular guy who does film and TV who also happens to be dating Hollywood actress and incredibly fashionable Vanessa Hudgens.
Austin's style of dress is understated but effective. He frequently styles his wardrobe with hip accessories like sunglasses, caps, and hats. For most, if not all, guys comfort is what you look for in anything they wear. On the street, Austin ops for a straight denim jean or slim fitted trouser with distressed leather boots paired with a leather jacket over a fitted tee (see slideshow). On the red carpet he models a classic suit and tie fitted to perfection in the style of Aramani and Dolce Gabbana.
Whether it’s in career or fashion, Selena Gomez and Austin Butler are doing everything right. Be it male or female, if you’re in search of a fresh face new ingénue or dapper dressed leading man, or just need a little eye candy. These two are the ones to watch!
