Although most of today’s nostalgic trends are centered in the 90s and 2000s, Selena Gomez stood out from the rest in her 60s-inspired look, which she drew with the help of her longtime stylist Kate Young. For a rare beauty event in London on 12 July, Gomez made an appearance in a Victor Glamwood fit-and-flare dress with bell sleeves and a square neckline.
The 29-year-old singer has accessorized a self-portrait with a white patent top-handle bag attached to an ornate gold bow. She played the hardware in her purse with Jennifer Fisher Hoop earrings and wore a metallic blue pointed-toe PVC heel with a glass-ornamented ankle strap on her leg.
Another celebrity style moment courtesy of Jennifer Lopez reminds me of the whole look. The pop star wore a similar outfit inspired by the 60’s when she was out with Mark Anthony at the Waverly Inn in New York in 2008. Lopez’s flowing minidress had the same yellow tone and she also added white accessories and gold hoops.
Both outfits evoke a Megan Draper-inspired retro flair, an aesthetic that is sure to become even more popular in the coming months. Although Lopez and Gomez were dressed almost 14 years apart, they are both of a cyclical nature and proof that the dynamic trend will always feel timeless.
Gomez’s 60s-inspired outfit can also be interpreted as a tribute to his character Mabel in “Only Murders in the Building.” Mabel often wears Jennifer Fisher Hoop earrings like Gomez. And Mabel plays similar yellow characters in the Gomez-produced Hulu series to give a stronger statement. “The marijuana we use throughout the show represents Mabel’s Mexican-American heritage – a symbol of mourning and rebirth, as well as a symbol of passion and creativity, all perfectly matched to Mabel,” said costume designer Dana Covarubias, formerly POPSU.
