Not to sound old fogey, but recent pics from Selena Gomez’s concert tour make us feel like proud “baby girl’s grown up!” parents seeing our former Disney child star transform herself into such a superstar young lady. Besides turning 19 last week (my, how the days go by), Miss G posed for Elle Mexico in a series of sophisticated designer ensembles complete with voluminous hair and mature makeup to match her rising style-star status. Now our girl’s headlining a summer concert tour and bringing down the house every night in sparkle-pony showstoppers like this Vegas glitter-gal number. I mean, brains EXPLODIN’.

We love how the shaggy, natural hair and minimal makeup keep Selena fresh and youthful when adorned in all of that bedazzle. Even though Selena’s ramping up her style game, she’s choosing to stay both classy and true to her age. Speaking of age, our li’l lady has a new, YOUNGER BF—some kid by the name of Justin Bieber. All we have to say is, keep making our PRIDE and JOY happy, Justin B. Every gossip mag on earth may have declared you Boyfriend of the Year—what with all of the hand holding, gift giving, and innocent smooching. But make no mistake, we’ve got our eyes on you.
