Hi, I'm Selena Gomez.
00:16
Welcome to my W cover shoot.
00:20
Well, we are in beautiful Malibu, California.
00:24
My go-to red carpet style is classic.
00:26
Very simple, I love things that are to the point
00:29
with a little bit of a edge.
00:30
That way when I make a bigger statement,
00:32
it's a statement.
00:34
It's not something that I'm used to all the time.
00:37
It's very classic.
00:39
I'm a shoe junkie for sure.
00:41
Heel boot, flat boot.
00:45
Boots, I love boots.
00:49
My style's changed so much from yesterday.
00:53
(laughs)
00:53
I change my mind all the time,
00:55
but it's incredible because I'm able to be inspired
00:57
by some of the most talented people in the world.
01:03
My music, for sure, has inspired the looks
01:05
that I wear onstage, and/or on the album artwork.
01:11
Specifically with this album, though,
01:12
I wanted to seem very bare
01:14
because this is the most personal record
01:17
that I've ever done.
01:20
Obviously you want to keep your, you know,
01:22
integrity in who you are,
01:23
but it's incredible once I actually was able
01:27
to step out of my comfort zone,
01:28
so that's when you really challenge yourself
01:30
is when you put yourself into situations
01:32
that you didn't know that you could actually do.
01:34
Well, I hope to inspire people to not be afraid
01:36
to step out of those boundaries.
