Goodbye, Good Girl! Selena Gomez's Style Gets Increasingly Edgy

Selena Gomez‘s style was once reliably sweet and angelic.

But following her big breakover — and subsequent reunion with Justin Bieber — her style has taken a turn to the fierce and edgy.

Gone are the pastel minis and flowy, ruffled dresses; she’s now more likely to be spotted in bold braids, crop tops and her new favorite accessory, a bindi.

Within the last week, she’s paired her Burberry trench with sexy knee-high Brian Atwood sandals; visited the MTV studios in a Peter Pilotto peplum outfit with a cutout that exposed nearly her whole torso; and hit the Radio Disney Music Awards red carpet in leather, strappy Nicholas Kirkwood sandals and a dark smoky eye.

Between the raunchy Spring Breakers, her roller coaster love affair with her ex and her new, bolder style, we’d guess Ms. Gomez is ready to start a whole new chapter in her life.

But we want you to tell us: What do you think of Gomez’s all-grown up, badass new look?

She’s in her 20s. Give her a break. All girls start dressing edgy at this age, if not a few years before. I did the same thing, so did my niece. Eventually you get into your 30s and revert back to a more demure style. The outfits she is choosing are cute and are not showing “too much” so she’s already showing better style choices than a Kardashian or half the other starlets out there. I loved all three pics you showed of her and I’m in my late 40s. I wouldn’t wear them, but I think they look very cute on someone her age and she looks sexy, but at the same time the appropriate areas are well covered.

She needs to talk to him about style!

She is a beautiful young woman who is showing a different side of her more grown up personna. I hope she isn’t back with JB because she can do so much better. He is a punk who isn’t handling fame very well.

She has two different “red carpet” and appearance styles and she has refered to them in interviews. Her music style is what we are seeing now, bolder, edgier, fun. Her acting, charity, business look is more classic, elegance, runway but still age appropriate for someone beginning her twenties. She has a great sense of style and makes her decisions to fit the event.

Love all 3 looks! Especially the black boots in the first pic. Who cares what she does with her personal life. At least she looks good doing it! Go, Selena!

She is a beautiful young woman. I think she looks beautiful in anything. Silly though to go back and forth with JB. The first breakup should have been sign enough to not go back. She will learn though on her own like everyone else had to do.

I think she has beautiful fashion sense. She always looks great. Her choice in men, however, needs some help. What does she see in him ? Big mistake going back with him.

She’s obviously not to smart in the brains department if she’s back with that loser!

In Canada on

I just want to know…who the HE…. ( double hockey sticks…LL ) is Ashley Benson?
