Selena Gomez wears Gucci in Paris for ‘Spring Breakers’: cute or too grown up?

Selena Gomez Vanessa Hudgens

Here are some photos from the Paris premiere of Spring Breakers. Unfortunately, the insufferable James Franco was not present to show off his mad skills of deep-throating pistols because James is promoting Oz the Great and Powerful at the moment. But the girls — Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine — were on the scene and fully decked out to impress (unlike the movie, probably). Selena recently told MTV that she didn’t mind wearing a bikini throughout her role: “It was so funny. The rest of the girls were in the trailer doing crunches. I didn’t mind. I didn’t care.” She really wants this to be her breakout role, but Vanessa Hudgens has been trying to do the same thing ever since High School Musical 3 came out in 2008. We’ll see how it goes. I don’t think that Harmony Korine does Disney is going to be as successful in obliterating good girl images as Vanessa and especially Selena would hope, but let’s talk about fashion.

Selena went with a spangly blue Gucci dress that she paired with Jimmy Choo heels. The look is slightly more grown-up than we’re used to seeing Selena appearing, but the amount of skin shown is quite deceptive. Selena’s highlighting her long, lean legs and flashing a little bit of side boob, which isn’t so bad. I actually like this dress on her. Selena’s 20 years old now, so I guess coddling her (stylewise) is getting a bit old as at this point. She’s got a baby face, but maybe that will eventually disappear.

Vanessa went with a full-on ball gown in this Rafael Cennamo dress. Why so formal? This is a movie where she shows off her cute butt in a bikini for most of her screen time. I’m thinking that Vanessa’s booty is probably the highlight of all of Spring Breakers, but that doesn’t mean this Harmony Korine exploitation flick will do anything for her career. She should have taken it down a notch and gone with a cocktail dress.

      The movie per se is try-hard. The funny thing is that instead of say, going to acting class and do off-broadway stuff, they think that doing drugs and acting like prostitues in a movie will save their careers.

      This is the 21st century route to movie stardom

        Let me guess: You’re a conservative. You want the media to be heavily censored and squeaky-clean like it was in the 50s (boring ) even when little kids are not the target audience. It’s so funny to me how people don’t have a problem when actors and actresses take on roles as evil villains, criminals, or other unfriendly roles, but then they have to moralize when the role involves drugs or if it’s an actress taking on a sexual role, especially if the actress used to have a disney/kiddie image. It’s also telling that you compare an actress to a prostitute just for playing a fictional character who wears a bikini and engages in casual sex. There we have it: the whore stigma.

        You are reading what you want to read, not what I wrote.

        I said that they think that by taking those kind of roles their careers will transform into serious careers and will break out from their squeaky-clean Disney images.

        And see that I said “This is the 21st century route to movie stardom”.

        It’s become a pattern by now. Drew did it, Lindsay did it, hell, BRITNEY did it. And not always works. So what I said is that in order to be taken seriously, they have to take the long road and work hard, do small productions, do off-broadway, take acting classes; basically, do what Sally Field did. And look at her now, she could be winning her third Oscar on Sunday.

        These girls believe that by doing a complete 180 turn they will be taken seriously and it takes much more than that.

        Besides, I am not a conservative lol I don’t know why you said that but, again, you read what you wanted, not what I wrote.

        blaize: mel said it is wrong if they think that a sexual role will make the transition from disney product to serious actress, she didn´t say she was opposed to display of nudity or sex in movies/art.

  1. mia girl says:

    The first picture looks like they are posing at their prom…”A Night on the Red Carpet”

  2. DeltaJuliet says:

    Vanessa dress and hair are a disaster.

    I had to LOL about the wearing a bikini comment. Why WOULD she care? There’s nothing to her!

  3. Lexie says:

    first photo, the girl on the left. i thought it was tara reid? she looks like her.

    as for these two, meh. clothes and in general. just, meh.

  4. Tessa says:

    WTF are they all wearing? And Selena was cute when she was younger, but her face isn’t cute for someone in their 20′s. Ashley and Vanessa are far more beautiful.

  5. serena says:

    All the dresses are fug. So horrible.

  6. mel says:

    She’s trying too hard to break out. Her work should speak for herself, otherwise nobody will take her serioisly

  7. LadyMTL says:

    Selena’s dress is cute and not all that bad (especially compared to how the others are dressed). She can wear things like that when she’s young, so why not go for it?

  8. says:

    I can’t see Vanessa as anything other than those raunchy nude pictures that were leaked a while back. That baby face doesn’t fool me!

  9. jinni says:

    I think the girl in the purple sort of looks like JLaw.

    Vanessa and the chick in black dresses look like they need to be re-sized to fit their short stature.

  10. shewolf says:

    They look like they are 10. Or am I just old?

  11. Quinn Parker says:

    Yech! Looks like the old “DEB” store blew up on these girls…

  12. Merritt says:

    Those dresses are awful. The purple one is the best out of the four, and that is not saying much.

  13. LadyLupton says:

    Wait – Selena and Vanessa aren’t the same person? My bad.

  14. kc says:

    Vanessa looks hard. Not sure any of them have the talent to break out of the disney ouevre, but we’ll see.

  15. hoya_chick says:

    They all look like they are dressed for different events! Selena’s dress has too much going on around the neckline. Vanessa looks overdressed and try hard as usual, and I have no clue who the other girls are but everyone looks a mess.

    Also, the reason Vanessa can’t break out of her Disney image and find mainstream acting success is because she CAN’T ACT! Neither can Selena. Disney prepackaged them and they appealed to a very specific demographic. In the real acting world the girls their age–JLaw, the Emmas etc can act circles around them.

    And why is this movie getting all these premiers? In Paris, at film festivals awhile back—stop trying to make fetch happen! It looks terrible and will bomb at the box office.

  16. andrea says:

    Yikes. Why do I feel like I’m looking at a sexed up version of toddlers parading around in their mum’s clothes?

    Off the red carpet, I like the photos they’ve been posting though. Selena, Vanessa, and Ashley look like they’re having a lot of fun together in Paris (I guess the other one hangs out with her husband more). Too bad it’s all in service of that ridiculous movie.

  17. LIVEALOT says:

    I <3 Selena's look!

    Vanessa would have got a pass if it was a pantsuit. I like her nails and dare I say hair, but those dress and shoes are FUG!

  18. littlestar says:

    You say baby face on Selena, I still say it’s possibly bulimic jaw.

  19. Sweet Dee says:

    I hope pointy manicures are not going to be a thing. Vanessa’s is the second one I’ve seen lately, I really hate it. Also, someone should teach her how to pose without a duckface.

  20. Fangirl says:

    More Ashley Benson posts/pics plzzz. Love her!!! :) totally obsessed with PLL!

  21. nina says:

    LOL @ people who criticizes this movie without actually having seen it…

  22. april says:

    Selena has such a round face that it gives her a baby face. When she speaks she has such a husky voice that it’s all very incongruent with the way she looks.

    If she found a good plastic surgeon he could help give her face more angle. They put some sort of peg that sticks out in the center of the cheek bone area resembling prominent cheek bones so your face doesn’t look so round. A plastic surgeon explained this to me a few years ago.

    Right now it looks like her face keeps getting wider right below her eyes as she gets older thus making it less symmetrical. Beauty is all about symmetry.

  23. dan says:

    selena always looks classy. just like miley always looks trashy

  24. A Fan says:

    Beautiful, sexy, and cute – all in one. She looks perfect from head to toe (those shoes are making me salivate).

    The other one? Not so much…
