Selena Gomez at Adidas Launch

Posted on July 09, 2013

Oh great, Kristen Stewart. Now cutoffs are going to be a thing for the celebs, isn’t it? Thanks a LOT, Kristen.


Selena Gomez attends the “Selena Gomez and Adidas Neo Fall/Winter 2013 Collection” Launch Photocall in Berlin, Germany.

Adidas NEO Selena Gomez BBNEO Wedge Shoes

Aw, we’re teasing. What the hell else is a starlet supposed to wear to an Adidas launch featuring pictures of her … in cutoffs?

Wait. She has a line with Adidas? Why? She never struck us as the sporty type. She’s more the California neo-hippy type. But hey, her nail polish matches her athletic socks and that’s demonstrating a fairly firm commitment to the look, so we suppose we shouldn’t really bitch too much.

Celebrity photocalls featuring cutoffs and sneakers. Kittens, we fear for the world. With the amount of glamour and fabulosity in the atmosphere dwindling with each passing day, our grandchildren are likely to grow up in a world completely devoid of sparkle, divas, or attitude. Won’t you help? Do it for the children.

      Definitely do it for the children. I’m fed up to the teeth with cutoffs, jeans, jeggings, and casual wear being trotted out as dress up clothes. Rant aside, this probably is an acceptable look for promo’ing sneaks.

      • RebeccaKW

        At least her cutoffs are longer than her panties. Which is more than I can say for most of the teens in my area.

      “…our grandchildren are likely to grow up in a world completely devoid of sparkle, divas, or attitude.”

      NOT as long as there are drag queens to keep the faith.

      • decormaven

        Thank the heavens for that!

        • ItsDicey

          Can I get an AMEN up in here?

          • drdarke

            Will a Secular Humanist “a-Men!” do…?

            • ItsDicey

              But of course, darling! Just quoting the ever fabulous RuPaul.

      • demidaemon

        See my comment (above or below; I am unsure of where Disqus will place it for everyone else.)

      • conniemd

        Then there is the Elie Saab Fall couture collection, which has plenty of gorgeous sparkle, even if not much art.

    • ghopping

      god those shoes are hideous.

    • MilaXX

      I really don’t mind the look, but I hate those pink socks. They looks stupid.

      • mjude

        is that just her “pop” of color.

        • anotherkate

          If so, perhaps she could have maybe, you know, included some color in her “design”? (Jokes. We all know she didn’t design anything).

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      Oh, the born of Selena Kardashian!!!!

      • Tânia

        she totally looks like Khloe here!

    • j_am

      Wow, look at how much they have lightened her skin in the ad. That’s really disturbing.

      • omg_dora

        Huh, I think you’re right. They turned her into Vanessa Paradis.

    • CeeQ

      I can’t help with the sparkles or the diva – but I can give plenty of attitude! FINALLY Mother’s gonna have to eat her words re. “that attitude is not going to help you, dear”

    • crash1212

      She looks adorable. That is all.

    • flamingoNW

      Well, I would maybe have considered buying those shoes if they didn’t say Selena Gomez on them…. As far as saving the world of sparkles for the children, you are asking the wrong kitten….

      • decormaven

        Ha ha! I didn’t notice they carry her branding as well. Who is the target market for these “designs”?

        • alyce1213

          Hundreds of thousands of young fangirls. She has quite a following.

    • hughman

      Oh great, there’s a Pose and Twirl at the food court now.

      • Little_Olive

        I was gonna say, we are thisclose to a red (purple, orange, whatever) carpet for the launching of a new dip for buffalo wings. And that, my friend, I won’t be able to take.

    • Lauren Schneider

      Is she wearing heeled sneaks or regular ones? Either way, they’re ugly as sin, but I’m curious.

    • Little_Olive

      I don’t know how to put this but this is too casual even for a super-causal event. Keep the (ugly) shorts if you will, but spruce them up a bit, honey. You’re good at that.

      Also, I am laughing so hard.

      • RebeccaKW

        Agreed. She could have worn something other than a sweatshirt.

    • Maryanne525

      She looks like she’s at the photocall to run down to the corner for tampons and animal crackers.

    • majorbedhead

      I don’t know, at least she’s not wearing stripper shoes and cut offs.

    • alyce1213

      Cute as a bug. As j_am noted below, it’s absolutely appalling how they bleached her skin in the ad behind her.
      I don’t like the name on the sneakers, but her young fans will probably love it.

    • housefulofboys

      I think it’s fine for a sportswear launch. Besides cutoffs (and aren’t these really “rolled” instead of “cutoff”?), you could be looking a running shorts, or track pants, or sweatpants… These at least look light and summery. I’m biased, perhaps, because I think she’s just cute as a button, even if I deplore her choice in men/boys.

    • annabelle archer

      GAH she is just soooo pretty. Hate “her” shoes.

    • Donna Tabor

      Don’t blame Kristen Stewart. Jessica Simpson started it.

    • PrunellaV

      Cute, but she could reduce the number of extensions by half and still have Barbie hair.

    • Gaby

      I had a pair of tennis-shoe-mary-jane wedges (actually, 2 pairs of the same style in different colors) that I still miss, but I will NEVER buy into these high-top-wedge monstrosities. They look like the sneakers you had to get for Barbie because her deformed tiny feet wouldn’t fit into normal sneakers. MEH.
      (And by “never” I mean “I reserve the possibility of changing my mind someday upon trying them on and finding I love them because because.”)
      ETA: I kind of covet her weird sweater though.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      I thought stars were supposed to wear something and it trickled down to Target the next year. Between Heidi’s mullet blouse and Selena’s shorts, I am thinking that Target is trickling up. Seriously, this is what is on the racks – in the girls section – of Target right now.

    • demidaemon

      Thus the need for more drag queens in everyone’s life, walking with children in nature.

    • Lilithcat

      On the bright side, at least they are neatly hemmed and cuffed. No ratty strings or pocket bottoms dangling.

      • rajf

        And that puts them in a completely different (positive) category in my book.

    • marlie

      It’s a regular adolescent/young adult look. Which would be fine if she was on a Starbucks run, but still my for when you know your picture is going to be taken and circulated around the world.

    • Dagney


    • Slanted & Enchanted

      I covet that sweater. Been meaning to get something like it for a couple years now and can never find one I like within my price range. Meh.

    • ankali

      Wait, is she the neo-hippie type? I thought that was Vanessa Hudgens. They’re not the same person, you know.*

      * They are totally the same person.

    • formerlyAnon

      Some days she looks way more like Valerie Bertinelli than I can cope with.

    • Sadie-Ann

      I want to flip her hair behind her shoulders so, so bad.

    • Jai Piper

      she seriously needs to get over the Cocker Spaniel hair. If she’s going to go for that much volume around her face, she should move it down a few inches (a la Bertinelli). The second shot from the bottom . . . her head looks like it’s expanding because the volume of her hair is directly in line with the widest part of her face.

    • Sagecreek

      You know , if it weren’t for T-Lo I would never even have heard of Miss Gomez, and now she has a shoe named after her?

    • snarkykitten

      she looks tacky. Faux Homeless is so fucking stupid

    • Lizzy

      I hate those shoes I hate those those shoes I hate those shoes I hate those shoes.

    • amanda lynn

      that shirt is really cute.
