To say that Selena Gomez is the cutest girl on the planet would be an understatement. The girl is capital A-dorable, uber-positive (can you conjure up a mental picture of her NOT smiling??), and definitely one classy lady. Her squeaky clean (but not annoyingly so) rep and 100% relatablility make Sel pretty universally charismatic which might be why the girl is asked to host so many awards shows. It's also probably why even though she's a master of the small screen, entering homes and winning over families via Wizards of Waverly Place on the reg, fans are chomping at the bit for MORE Selena. Thus, the success of Sel's musical endeavor, Selena Gomez & The Scene, with a set list as shiny and effervescent and uplifting as the girl herself. The band's latest single is anthemic and full of dance-pop goodness, and the video is just as happy-making.

CHARTREUSE AND SHADES

I meannnn, how can you not love this girl? (Spoiler alert: it's not possible) Set against a chartreuse backdrop, the candy-pink kissy lips pop and paired with disheveled wavy hair and floral printed cat eye shades, Selena looks both sweet and sassy.

THIS IS MY HARVESTING OUTFIT

If this looks familiar, it's because you've seen it before! Selena Instagrammed a snap of this outfit early last month when she was on location shooting the vid. We were immediately drawn to the blunt bang and colored streaks (which we see now are also STRIPED) and think this is a look Sel should try more often (it is, after all, just a wig). We just don't know if we'd rock this ensemble in the middle of a corn field... *Kanye shrug*

PAILETTES AND A POPPED COLLAR

While definitely still questionably over-dressed for field-frolicking, this neon pailetted tank + paint splattered denim jacket is at least a little more believable than the previous outfit. We do wonder if Sel is attempting to revive the popped collar, though, with this move. *contemplative beard stroke*

SIDE-SWEPT SHOULDER PLAY

Sel's side-swept bang looks suuuUUUper glossy and luxurious here, and paired with those glittering enomo hoops and that tribal striped cut-out top (her second of the vid! Do we smell a TREND??), this ensemble is at the top of our covet list.

GRAFFITI FROCK, DANGLY FEATHER GOODNESS

ZOMG. Those dangly feather earrings. That sleek pulled back updo. That smokey, but not too-smokey, cat eye. And that to DIEDIEDIE for graffiti print jersey dress with the ADJUSTABLE STRAPS (#keepingitreal to the Nth degree, gurl)? We love. We approve. We worship. A resounding YES.

DANCING IN THE DARK WITH NEON SOCKS

If you were a Selena doubter before and you have a heart that is currently beating inside your physical body, there's no way you can deny the all-around endearing CUTEness of this shot of Sel dancing alone in the dark in a glittery bodiced party dress with heels and neon socks!

DROWNING IN BALLOONS, STUDS DON'T FLOAT

First of all, this snap looks like it's meant for an editorial spread, it would span across both pages and the text would sit in the upper-right corner. Aside from that, the adorbz shot is showcasing a whole lot of accessories game. Colorblocked wayfarers, a diamond-y collar necklace, and stacked studded bracelets. With all that hardware, no wonder girl is drowning in these balloons.

LOVELY IN LATEX AND LACE

Umm, WHAT. Jumping from the sea of pink balloons, Selena reveals that she's wearing a strapless dress of similar shape to her "dancing in the dark frock," but this one makes us do a double- nay, triple-take becuase uhhh, are your brains comprehending this SHINY stuff with the LACY stuff?? *brain scramble, drool, adjfghadfklgj;afkl* The juxtaposition of the vampy latex-like fabric (also, HAI exposed zipper) and the HOT pink lace skirt are so wonderfully crazy-making, we almost can't deal.

COMFY, SNEAKY, AND READY TO RUN

Sneaking onto school grounds after dark is tricky business, and if you're going to twirl around while you light fireworks and other various sparkly things once there, you need to be comfy enough to GTFO if the whistles blow. Thus, this vibrant tank top paired with easy-going separates. The knubby sweater is loose enough to allow for full range of motion, and though she's wearing a skirt (tough business for running), it's weighed down with stacks on stacks on stacks of applique flowers.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED, MAJOR CUTENESS ACHIEVED

Sel and friends manage to light the decorative explosives unharmed and the subsequent lights allow us to see she's also wearing a starry collar necklace. AWWW, how fitting!
