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?

I think she has a great sense of style.

She is in her 20s. She is young and having fun. I think she looks awesome. I would love to have her hair!

I think she should stay away from JB. He’s trouble.

Adrian on

She is making a big mistake by getting back together with him…she was much better off.

She’s a beautiful girl, smart, talented, funny… no complaints

She’s in her early 20s. She’s probably just growing up. Not wanting to look like a teenager anymore. That’s cool. Only thing is, you can’t grow but so far when you have a teen boyfriend. I just don’t get that. Usually, young women want someone older, or, at least the same age. The maturity level of men is much slower than women.

She is only 20 so needs to avoid some of those way over the top SEXY clothes that are way to old looking for her but guess she is trying to be sexy in hopes of attracting a man not that “skirt” wearing Justin who is a brat……..

I love her style. She is classy with a little sass! She is dressing age appropriate. Her mother should be Proud!

regarding her love life, I am a little disappointed she is back with JB. She can do soo much! I’m sure it won’t last she will figure it out, he is just a moment, in the scheme of life!

She is having fun with her looks. It is fun to see this more edgy side to her style. (I do hope she doesn’t get back together with Justin, though – he seems to heading down the wrong path. She seems far more mature than him – especially with everything happening on his European tour – and I think he would just drag her down.)

OK, so first she thinks JB has the hots for Rihanna and then she begins to morph into Rihanna. Even her latest song (with all the na-na-na-nas) is Rihanna-esque. Karreuche Tran tried to become Rihanna too and you see where that got her. All I’m saying is it’s never good to loose your identity (or gain an entirely new one) over a man/boy Biebs.
