Selena Gomez has caused quite the stir on social media this week. The stunning 24-year-old revealed a cool statement crop on Instagram on Tuesday, showcasing the fashion-forward look with two Polaroid photographs pinned to a wall. Soon after the picture was posted, compliments from devoted fans flooded in, with one writing: “Superbly gorgeous,” while another gushed: “Love your hairstyle.” A third branded it: “Perfect.” However, it seems that we all made a faux pas when jumping to the conclusion that the star had actually made the chop. Two days later, Selena confessed to Extra, that the new look was actually a wig. Chatting on the red carpet, she said: “It was so funny. I was trying on different stuff and I posted a picture [because] I liked the image. Evidently, people thought I cut my hair real short, but it’s still the same…it’s a little chop.”

And even though the trial look was very well received, it seems that Selena isn’t planning on replicating it anytime soon. When asked, she replied: “I don’t know, I’m terrified. I’m going to keep it safe for now.”


Selena was in fact wearing a wig 

The former Disney star has been cementing a name for herself in the fashion world over the last few years. Last year, she was branded the face of Louis Vuitton’s Series 5 campaign, and in December, Coach confirmed her as their latest brand ambassador.

Selena has previously opened up about her style transformation to Vogue. "Let's just say I wasn't always the [designers'] top choice," she told the fashion bible, adding that she likes her style to appear simple and easy. "I like to find things that are unconventional and make them look classic, because if I'm forcing something, you can just tell."
