Even if her smile was for the cameras, there was no mistaking Selena Gomez' sunny demeanour as she got down to work on a new fashion campaign. The brunette actress is clearly in a good place following her reconciliation with Justin Bieber.
The 20-year-old was taking part in a photocall for Addidas spin off brand Neo, for which she is a brand ambassador. Her pop star boyfriend also represents the brand, though he couldn't join her at the event, since he's currently on a tour to promote his latest album.
A press release from the brand revealed the Wizards of Waverly Place actress will "inspire teens with the label’s fresh looks through a three-year partnership until end-2015.
"As well as sporting her favorite NEO looks, Selena will make appearances for the label in major markets throughout 2013 and 2014 and share NEO's latest news, designs and collections through her social media networks.
"She will front NEO's seasonal campaigns under its 'Live Your Style' positioning, starting with Spring/Summer 2013 to debut in February 2013."
The high profile teen position is the icing on the cake for Selena after getting back with her other half. The pair have not directly commented on their breakup or reconciliation, but they're apparently patched things up after their reported split at the start of the month. Sources said that "because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship ".
The high profile teen position is the icing on the cake for Selena after getting back with her other half. The pair, who first stepped out as a couple at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in February 2011, have not directly commented on their breakup or reconciliation, but they're apparently patched things up after their reported split at the start of the month. Sources said that "because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship ".
Eighteen-year-old Justin dodged questions about his relationship during a radio interview following the reports, but did admit "I don't know what's going on in my life", when pressed. The day after he performed Justin Timberlake's breakup song Cry me a River during a concert in Boston.
More evidence of trouble in paradise came when Selena's friends posted supportive and inspirational messages on Twitter. The actress' childhood friend Demi Lovato wrote: "When you are in the dumps, look around at all the things you have to be thankful for." And: "Sometimes we're gonna have our bad days, but we must continue to work to be great. Keep smiling. It looks beautiful on you!"
Meanwhile Francia Raisa, another pal of Selena's, seemed to be reffering to Justin when she posted: "What a fool!"
The brunette beauty seemed to be putting her romance troubles aside as she attended the Woman of the Year awards last Monday wearing a gorgeous white gown – and a beaming smile. But days later she was spotted out at a restaurant with Justin, leading to reports the pair were about to give their love another chance.
Justin took his mum to the AMAs, but was joined inside the event by Selena. The pair were careful not to be photographed together but apparently left together to attend an afterparty, where an onlooker said they were "very loving".
