Selena Gomez showed some leg at the New York City launch of her perfume, but was her look too risqué for a 19-year-old?
Selena Gomez launched her debut fragrance at NYC's Macy's Herald Square on Saturday in a starfish-and-seashell-printed bustier with matching shorts from Versace's Spring 2012 collection. Nude Giuseppe Zanotti heels made her bronzed legs look extra, extra long and lean.

In the purple-hued ad for her namesake perfume, Gomez poses soaking wet, in a waist-high body of water, dressed in a strapless flowing purple gown. Her dark hair is slicked back to reveal gold hoop earrings and smoky makeup. She described the motif of the ad as simple and pretty to Us Weekly.

Decked out in pieces from Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Vera Wang, Marni, David Yurman, Manolo Blahnik and Yves Saint Laurent, Selena Gomez looks more like a sultry screen siren than a 19-year-old who, just five years ago, was playing the role of the bratty and quirky teen wizard, Alex Russo.
Gomez flaunted some major cleavage in the editorial spread, revealing curves that some might not have even known she had.
