Selena gets the Terry Richardson treatment for Harper’s Bazaar. The good news is she managed not to flash panties. The bad news is the pictures couldn’t be any duller.
Selena Gomez covers the April 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine photographed by Terry Richardson and styled by Beth Fenton.
But before we get to trashing Terry Richardson…
On having two deliberate fashion personalities: “If I’m going to the MTV Movie Awards, I’m going to dress a certain way, but if I’m going to the MTV Music Awards, it can be a little more out there. I mean, I’m probably the only one that notices, but, there’s two distinct Selenas.”
ATTAGIRL. This is probably our Number One bit of advice for budding fashionistas. You should not only know your venue, you should have a range of looks devised for various venues. That is to say, many fashionistas – especially those in the public eye – do not dress the same way all the time. They have a range of personae that they cycle through based on their moods and where they’re going. This is why it’s always better to have a wardrobe than to have a set of outfits hanging in your closet. Outfits are limiting; a wardrobe is full of possibilities.

As for Terry Richardson, we just don’t get this guy. Why hire someone who works hard to ensure his pictures look as amateur as possible? Little tip for the editors out there: an actual amateur would give you the exact same shots for a couple hundred bucks and a Selena autograph.
