Our September cover star can’t keep everything to herself.
No stranger to the front row at Nicolas Ghesquiere’s shows for Louis Vuitton, Selena Gomez – Vogue Australia’s September cover girl – cemented her relationship with the French heritage brand in June, fronting their autumn/winter ‘16/’17 campaign lensed by Bruce Weber.
Anyone who fancies themselves an arbiter of proper modern pop culture (or is simply a frequent reader of this website) already likely knows a thing or two about Selena Gomez (she’s a former Disney star, most followed person on Instagram, all of that Bieber stuff, yada yada yada). But thanks to one very in-depth Skype date with Vogue’s Zara Wong, Gomez gave us insight to who she really is for our September issue cover story. Here are three things we learned about the multi-hyphenate stunner’s dating life that we didn’t know before reading the full story:
1. She doesn’t actually have time to date right now.
“But I like to have fun, I like to hang out,” she teases with an infinitesimal cock of the eyebrow.
2. Super famous guys aren’t really her type.
“I’d be so stoked with a writer or producer or actor who is low-key, but those kind of guys are terrified of me!”
3. She’s restricted dating to her own circle of friends.
“Because I think people would think it’s kind of dumb [to date me]. Nobody would want to throw themselves into that situation where it was so heightened publicly, like, why would they?”
The complete nine-page feature, complete with a photo spread styled by Sally Lyndley and shot by Emma Summerton, is on sale August 15.
