So, apparently Selena Gomez has signed a deal with adidas. This seems like a strange marriage of celeb and clothier, since I have never in my life said, “Hey, look, it’s noted tracksuit megafan Selena Gomez.” And while I still would not say that, I got a good laugh out of what she wore to promote the deal:

Girl, please. When does she ever dress like that in public? She looks like she has Bieber Fever, which is amusing given their current non-relationship. I’m not saying a girl can’t decide to change up her personal style if that’s what she wants to do, but for real, this feels like Selena Gomez five years ago and NOTHING like Selena Gomez five minutes ago, and probably even LESS Selena Gomez five minutes from now. At least try for SOME synergy, folks. Kids who want copy Selena Gomez aren’t doing it because they want to wear flannel and snoods and skull tees. Even Avril Lavigne would’ve made more sense, and I can’t BELIEVE I just wrote that sentence because I don’t think it’s ever been done before, ever, anywhere. What a world.

    Apparently they’ve already gotten back together? The whole situation is more confusing than I care to really care about.

    Is she just…wearing Justin’s clothes? I’m not naming names, but some girls have been known to wear their ex-boyfriends’ shirts after a breakup, in a stalkerish sort of way.

    Nope, even Selena from 5 years ago wouldnt be caught dead in this.

    Who knew that papa smurf would become a fashion muse?

    No girl would ever wear this unless she was committed to not dating any normal and decent guys, ever.

    Okay, I’m confused; is there another image I missed? How do we know she’s wearing a snood with that stupid floppy hat on?!

  7. Sandra

    I think the stupid floppy hat is the snood. Like, on steroids.

      Well, THAT’S depressing :(

      If they’re going to misuse use a word that already has a centuries-old definition (i.e. a fancy hair net), why couldn’t they apply it mean something with more dignity, like, oh, I don’t know, maybe a blow-up sex doll purchased from a truck-stop vending machine?!

    MAYBE (I hope, God, I hope) this is her way of silently making fun of Justin. Maybe this is her way or saying, “SEE HOW DUMB YOU LOOK?” It would be clever and spiteful, even if slightly self-deprecating.

    I’d call any loose-fitted head sack garment like this a snood. This is indeed on steroids, a heavy, crocheted, outdoor snood, with pompom augmentation.

      @vandalfan, you’re back! Hope you had a good Thanksgiving; I’ve missed seeing your comments. And on topic, snood snood snood snood.

    Snood. I love that word…

    wait…don’t hate on me Fug Nation…but, I looooooooove this outfit and would wear the hell out of it. Maybe not the thing on her head, but the outfit is so darn cute and in my I’m-still-18-mind (31 actually) this is the shiznit…well, maybe minus the checked/flannel overshirt..it is rarely ever below 70 on this island…but, T-shirt I waaaaaaant, jeans are awesome, sneakers omg! comfy comfy

    I would sign my SOUL over to Adidas if it meant I would get to wear Y-3 on a daily basis. This, however, is extremely bland trend salad.

    Oh how I wish snood was a portmanteau, like the combination of snark and hood.

    That hat is full of snood!

    Uncharacteristic outfit, but she is adorable. Look at that face!
