Former Disney star Selena Gomez proves that she is all grown up in the sexy ad for her new namesake perfume.
The purple-hued ad features Selena Gomez posing 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. The 19-year-old described the motif of the ad as simple and pretty, to Us Weekly.
Gomez is celebrating the launch of her namesake fragrance, a sweet scent housed in a tapered glass bottle topped with flirty purple and gold lips.
The singer was excited about the design. Ahhh it's so purrty.. So excited, nervous and hyper, she tweeted to fans on April 11, showing off her perfume bottles and packaging.
I wanted it to be tall so it stands out, she told Us Weekly. The design of the bottle is almost like a gown so it represents me on the carpet. The lips are fun...it makes it more youthful and you can play with it.
The brunette beauty consistently enlists help from her fans when working on such side projects. Unlike other Hollywood stars who use a team of experts to create their signature cologne, Selena asked for help from her devotees. She flew them into New York from destinations around the globe to help her decide on the specific notes.
They're the ones wearing it, so I trust them -- their opinions and everything that they've done for me, she told Us Weekly.
Eventually, they decided on a combination of raspberry, purple freesia and vanilla, which Gomez describes as yummy, rich, classic and refreshing. She also added that boyfriend Justin Bieber approves of the fragrance.
Selena Gomez's perfume will be available in May exclusively at Macy's and on macys.com for $35, $45 and $55. In August, it will enter Nordstrom, Ulta, Dillard's, Bonton and SSI, according to Us Weekly.
The young actress has been busy filming Spring Breakers with Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco in Florida. The movie, about four college girls who wind up in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation and find themselves indebted to a drug and arms dealer, will hit theaters in 2013.
