There’s another check in the column arguing for Selena Gomez as pop-culture fashion icon: Karl Lagerfeld has designed a custom couture look for her to wear during her Revival tour. The leggings and sparkly top took over 200 hours to create and feature more than 12,000 pearls and embroidered sequin accents, according to British Harper’s Bazaar. As to why Lagerfeld decided to lend his stamp of approval to the singer? It’s all about the music, naturally. “I love her music—it’s very strong,” he said (Selena said she was “completely blown away” by the finished look).
The tour just kicked off and is already attracting lots of stylish attention. The entire production is outfitted fantastically, and the opening number involves a super-sparkly look. Depending on which night showgoers catch the star, they’ll see one of two bespoke, completely glittery Monse bodysuits (more than 96,000 Swarovski crystals were used between both).
