­For a girl who started her career on a show with a purple dinosaur and later becoming a tween idol as a Disney star, Selena Gomez has certainly come a long way. She avoided the child-star trap of partying too much and substance abuse (which some of her Disney predecessors have fallen into) and has grown into a pop powerhouse and style icon with an Instagram following of 80.7 million (as of today).

If you still have doubts about her fashion credentials (which she amassed with a little help from Kate Young, one of the most sought-after stylists in the business), you might have missed her formidable alliance with Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière. Gomez is a regular fixture at the French luxury label’s shows, and often wears custom Louis Vuitton designs at key red carpet events, such as the Met Gala and the Oscars. The two of them are on the June cover of Vogue Brazil – a nod to the French luxury brand’s upcoming presentation in Rio de Janeiro (look out for live updates from our digital editor Audrey, who is attending the show, on our Instagram this Sunday!).
