Selena Gomez on the cover of Elle Mexico

Selena Gomez just celebrated her 19th birthday on Friday, but the teen looks well-beyond her age as she covers the August issue of Elle Mexico.

Dubbed "la chica del momento" which when translated means, "the girl of the moment," Selena wears Altuzarra with a Gucci belt accenting her svelte figure. The actress, singer and girlfriend of Justin Bieber, who was actually named after Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla, models various vintage, retro, 1970s-inspired looks for the publication.

The words, "Forever Young," splashed above her name, is fitting. Despite Selena's years of experience in showbiz, she has maintained her image as a positive role model, opposite of many of her Disney-manufactured counterparts.

In June, Inquirer movie critic Carrie Rickey sat down with Gomez, who was in town to promote her latest film, Monte Carlo. On her style, she said, "I'm very casual. I wear things that are simple and trend-free. My job requires me to be in hair and makeup a lot. When I don't have to dress up, I don't."
