SelenaGomez_EllenvonUnwerth-glamour-frontSelena Gomez made one of the boldest fashion statements yet in her young career when she was named Glamour’s “Woman of the Year.” Her stunning Ellen von Unwerth photo shoot shows in its holiday issue show her in full party mode, wearing sexy low-cut dresses.

Gomez, 20, flirted with more daring designs in 2012 in step with her growing interest in fashion and her growing sexuality.

She was described as innocently flirty in a Dolce & Gabbana skirt and top ensemble at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards. She spiced up the neutral tones with hot pink-orange Cesare Paciotti pumps and looked like anything but a kid.

But that was only the beginning.

The magazine lauded her look and called her “The Independent Spirit.” She credits her mom for her upbringing under not always the best circumstances. Her father abandoned the family when she was five.

“It’s because of [my mom] that I can do things on my own,” she told the magazine. “I like being professional. I like showing up on time. I like being good to people, and I know that I’m reflecting her at the end of the day.”

Her high spirits are clearly reflected in her photo spread. Check them out and be sure to add TheImproper on Twitter to keep up with all of Selena’s fashion updates.
