Selena Gomez is multitalented, but she is a really, really good model!
The 28-year-old proved once again that she’s a natural in front of the camera… it’s a good thing because she recently discussed quitting music to focus on acting. If that doesn’t work out, then she definitely has a future in modeling. Selena posed in several cute suits. She announced her brand new swimwear line with her best friend and former manager, Theresa Mingus, and her business partner Morgan Brutocao named La’Mariette.
Starting today (Saturday, July 3), fans can purchase the cute suits, which feature a trippy tie-dye print. The singer/actress opened up about why she decided to branch out into the crowded swimwear market.
She Did It For Fun
“It was really fun for us to play around with creating swimsuits because Theresa, Morgan and I love being outside so much,” Gomez said in a statement.
“After going through swatches, my favorite color was purple. I wanted to stay away from colors I’m used to like red and white,” she added. “Purple felt different for me and we added pops of color like green and neons here and there; it really becomes your own suit however you wear it.”
Gomez’s collection is available at lamariette.com and includes six new styles: two tops, two bottoms, a one-piece, and a sarong top.
“The Aura print is inspired by Selena. Her aura shines through in everything she does and we want everyone else to feel that sort of transformative feeling of being their most authentic self,” Brutocao said.
“Selena’s confidence is unmatched and being able to design a print with her which embodies that is so rewarding.”
Focusing On Acting
Hulu released a trailer for “Only Murders in the Building,” the new show that stars Selena, Steve Martin, and Martin Short. This is the first look at the new Selena, who is moving away from music and diving head-first into the acting world. The three stars play a group of neighbors hell-bent on solving a murder that occurred in their apartment building.
