Style Superstar: Selena Gomez Straps It In

With warmer temperatures just around the corner, most celebs are starting to put away their sexy leather looks until things cool off again. (Black leather leggings and 90-degree heat: not a good combo.) But as long as spring stays chilly, at least two of our favorite stars are still working their biker-chic aesthetic like a couple of bosses…or Style Superstars, as the case may be. Whose last-gasp leather look slayed us this week?

No surprise here: this week’s winning fashionista is Selena Gomez, who paused after an appearance on the “Late Show With David Letterman” to let fans feast their eyes on her Burberry trench coat and Brian Atwood boots. Selena is emerging as a serious style icon these days, and this look just further cements her trendsetter status: Footwear like this is hard to pull off, which just goes to show what a true-born Style Superstar Selena really is. Those boots are ridiculous and they look amazing on her, not least because she kept it simple with the matte black trench, natural makeup, and her long locks styled in casual, glossy waves—and no accessories, save for the esoteric touch of a teensy glittering jewel between her eyebrows.

And the second leathery look to catch our eye this week? Kate Hudson, who also went the shiny/skin-tight route as she wore a leather skirt, white heels and pink blousy top to her own “Letterman” appearance. But while we love this tasty color combo (does it remind anyone else of Mike ’n’ Ikes?), Kate’s unbrushed hair and rumpled hemline are detracting distractions, costing her the chance to take the Style Superstar title this week. Details: the devil’s in ’em!

What do you think of this week’s style picks?
