Selena Gomez has a new favorite fall outfit: a slip dress she designed herself. The singer has been spotted wearing the pale lilac dress, which she created for her Coach x Selena line, no less than three times.
The first time she was seen sporting the look was in an ad for Coach in which she paired the dress with a black leather aviator jacket for a rock and roll look. The mix of silk and leather, as well as Selena playing the air guitar, recalled Courtney Love in her grunge days.
Next, in an Elle cover shoot, she wears the dress as a proper 1920s flapper giving off major Great Gatsby vibes. On this occasion, the slip is worn with just a diamond choker. Finally, the singer hit the streets in the dress, wearing it with stiletto-heeled sandals, a drop-pendant necklace and a choker for an interview with E! News at a Coach store.
The dress certainly looks comfortable so it’s no surprise that Selena wears it so often. It is also form fitting so it elongates the 5 foot 4 star’s frame making her appear a bit taller.
The lace-trimmed slip dress, which is detailed with embroidered florals and sequins, is available online at Coach for $495.
Selena’s collection for Coach debuted just a week ago. The 26-year-old had already collaborated with the brand last year on a collection of handbags. Her new line reflects the singer’s signature style: a mix of toughness, femininity, and fun.

“I think everything in my life is being majorly downsized, in a very good way,” @SelenaGomez tells ELLE. “I’m going back to simplicity. That’s always who I’ve been. It’s not me saying, ‘I feel the best I’ve ever felt,’” she continues. “It’s me saying, ‘I’m exactly where I am. And I’m so happy I’m in this place.’ It’s a lot of self-discovery. From 20 to 26? Oh my gosh. I feel like a totally different person.” Link in bio for our full October 2018 cover story with #SelenaGomez. . . .

“I’m so proud of the collection,” Gomez told Vogue. “What I love most about working with the Coach team is that they just know how I dress. Everything felt authentic from the beginning.”
Coach’s creative director, Stuart Vevers, calls Selena his muse. “I love working with Selena because she brings her strong point of view to the design process,” he said. “I wanted all of the pieces to reflect her style and her charm—and to feel effortless.”
Selena has several favorites from the collection. “I love the Trail bag. I like seeing everything I have in my purse,” she told Vogue. “It is great if I am heading out to dinner real quick. It is so convenient and fashionable. Very classy. The Belt Bag is so cute. To me, it is practical in a way that everyone can enjoy. It is an instant you-should-have-it-in-your-closet kind of thing and take wherever you go.”
Although Selena made her debut with Coach as a designer, this is not her first foray into fashion. From 2013 to 2015, she was a spokesperson and partner for Neo by Adidas, and in 2016, she appeared in a campaign for Louis Vuitton. She also partnered with Puma earlier this year as a brand ambassador and has appeared in campaigns for the Phenom Lux sneakers.
Selena’s success comes after some serious health scares. She was diagnosed with lupus a few years ago, and last year she underwent a kidney transplant, which she received from her friend Francia Raisa, an actress. During the transplant, an artery was broken and she had to undergo further surgery to build a new artery using a vein from her leg.
Thankfully, she's back on track and radiating good health in her silk ensemble.
