Selena Gomez finally takes the spotlight in her first ever American Vogue cover for the April issue. Looking radiant with slicked back hair and a floral two-piece ensemble, she opens up to readers about what’s been going on in her celeb-styled life.
The actress/singer has transformed before her follower’s eyes in what was first a child Disney star, and now it’s more than what Gomez could have even imagined. She has her own albums and has starred in various movies. Now she’s collaborating on a fashion collection with Coach, which is also in some of the outfits she’s wearing in the editorial.
The editorial features Balenciaga and Michael Kors too. The entirety of the photoshoot looks like it was shot in the middle of the dessert and it has readers dreaming of the summertime. Colorful florals and statement hoops have been trending and look to be sticking around for the season.
@SelenaGomez spent 90 days last summer in psychiatric treatment after dark feelings surfaced during her “Revival” tour. “DBT has completely changed my life,” she says. “I wish more people would talk about therapy. We girls, we’re taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who’s down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart.” In her April cover story, Gomez speaks candidly about her path to mental wellness, social media fatigue, and the little things that make her happy (link in bio).

Although Gomez has accomplished so much in her career, she manages to tell readers that happiness is not always what she may feel despite much of her success. In her interview, she told Vogue that she can’t wait for people to start forgetting about her because she’s been in the spotlight almost her whole life. She was also in rehab for a time focusing on an illness, and she said she often feels lonely while being on tour for so long.
