The trailer for Selena Gomez’s new film Monte Carlo just hit and it already has enthusiasts of teen-comedies-that-are-so-far-fetched-it’s-crazy (slowly raises hand) eagerly anticipating the release. The gist: Three friends played by Gomez, Leighton Meester, and Katie Cassidy embark on a dream vacay to Paris. But while they’re doing their typical tourist thing (sight-seeing, moped-riding, and sleeping in sketchy hostels) Gomez’s character gets mistaken for a British heiress and all hell breaks loose (and SOMEONE falls for Glee star Cory Monteith!). Early critics have compared the flick (which releases in theaters on July 1) to 2003’s The Lizzie Maguire Movie–but with WAY better clothes. Check out the trailer look-by-look below and tell us if you agree. So. Much. Shoe. Porn. Hurts. Our. Feelings.
Leighton and Katie’s characters give the real heiress, clad in a shawl-collar cream blazer, jeans, and a long necklace, the once over. Ugh. It’s the worst to be confronted by all that expensive-ass cuteness when you’re dripping like a drowned rat.
The faux heiress, played by Gomez, wears the same color combo that the real heiress wears above–gray, cream, and denim. Coincidence? Nope! Just MOVIE MAKIN’ MAGIC.
An oh-so-serious polo match attendee in a spiky feathered sunhat is affronted by an errant ball. No tawdry jokes, here. We’re WAY too classy for that.
Let’s take a moment to admire Katie and Leighton’s characters’ garb. Katie’s shrunken vest and subtle floral bubble skirt, and Leighton’s high-waisted short shorts and striped boat shirt…we’d expect nothing less from these two Gossip Girls.
Obviously, a heiress travels with shoes galore in a monogrammed steamer case that when opened makes our insides BURN WITH HOT SEARING ENVY.
Ditto for bags.
A serious, Liz Taylor-ish diamond and sapphire necklace heavy enough to mash your spinal column with its weight and still be totally worth it.
We know! More stuff! We love stuff…Sooooooooo jelz.
Leighton, please. What’s with the dreamy look? It’s not like you’ve never played characters who get to rock fancy floor length couture, like, ALL THE TIME. Ahahahaha. We’re totally getting a little mad now…
Siiiiiigh. All that dreamy, fancy, size 2 glory.
Oh, but our girl keeps it all the way real and instead of wearing one of the MANY pairs of designer pumps left by the heiress, Gomez’s character wears cowgirl boots to the ball. Not something we would do in a million years but, again, this movie is about FANTASY.
French actor Pierre Boulanger plays Gomez’s love interest in the flick. We too love going matchy poo in polo shirts. Bonsoir, mon petit chou.
We can tell when the real heiress returns–she looks unbelievable in a gray tube dress and cropped blazer and she always looks like she’s about to maim the help with that icy rich girl stare. Oh, heiress have you learned NOTHING? Oh, who cares! We’re so there to watch the bejesus outta this flick.
