Selena Gomez has been keeping a low profile lately, though there are signs that she is edging back into the spotlight. Last week, the star made a rare appearance at the We Day event in Inglewood, California, dressed in an elegant black dress by Christian Dior.
Gomez followed up that polished turn on the red carpet today at the Hollywood Reporter’s Empowerment In Entertainment event in Los Angeles. In a polka-dot wrap dress by Celine, complete with long sleeves and a below-the-knee hemline, she cut a sophisticated figure. She kept things modern with pointy-toe pumps in black leather, with nary a flashy piece of jewelry in sight.
The look decidedly more grown up than what we’ve come to expect from the singer. In the past, her look has relied heavily upon statement pieces and dramatic ruffles, for example. Indeed this subtle style evolution speaks to a quieter mood that’s been coming through on the runways, too. Jennifer Lopez and Katie Holmes were among the first to get on board, now it seems that Gomez is the latest discreet-chic convert.
