Selena Gomez showcased her cozy off-duty style on Tuesday and her more polished, event-ready fall style on Wednesday. The singer appeared at a New York screening for her Apple TV+ documentary My Mind and Me, wearing an olive Sézane wrap coat with a black mini dress and boots. Her hair was styled down in soft waves.
“I think it brought me back to a time,” she started. “The things I was watching from 2016, 2017, 2018—I can’t believe I was that girl. That breaks my heart. I’m grateful to be on the other side, but when I watched, for example, the first part of the film where I discuss my body—I don’t want to cry now, but I was completely upset with myself. I couldn’t believe the things I was aspiring to be. Which really aren’t possible unless you have a lot of money and you’re willing to spend it to do that to yourself. It really broke my heart. That’s not the feeling I want to give anyone. I hope I don’t. So watching it was a bit shocking and upsetting.”
“But I feel genuinely proud,” she continued. “I’ve had so many moments with people, real genuine moments, where women who are in their 40s tell me about their divorce or something they’re walking through. I can’t help but just love people for who they are, even when it’s frustrating and even maybe when I shouldn’t. I believe in people. Ultimately, I sacrificed my story—which I don’t mind, it’s just a little weird—I hope it has a bigger purpose and can carry on as a conversation for people.”
