Selena Gomez graces the cover of the September Teen Vogue fashion issue, a major coup for the budding star. But she’s pictured with blue eyes, according to a copy of the cover that has gone viral.
Gomez, 19, who’s had her share of troubles lately with boyfriend Justin Bieber, scored a major coup by landing the cover of the teen magazine.
She’s also dressed in a sexy, but not over-the-top, outfit that makes her look ravishing compared to her last Teen Vogue cover last year.
Check out Selena’s photos; click to enlarge.
Selena wears a blue denim shirt tied up around her midriff, with the sleeves rolled up. She wears what looks like a floral-patterned bikini top underneath. Her hair looks windblown and sexy as it dances around he shoulders.
But her eyes are unmistakably blue. Her father, Ricardo Gomez, is of Mexican ancestry, and her mother, Mandy Teefey, is part Italian. Not a blue eye in the crowd.
Selena’s natural eye color is dark brown, so she’s obviously wearing blue contacts in the photo, or her eyes have been digitally altered to look blue.
On the other hand, her eyes are so dark, it could be reflected light from blue surroundings, like an ocean or lake.
Either way, it’s not a good move. It looks like she’s in denial about her heritage. Plus, what kind of message does that send to teens who are insecure about their image?
On the plus side, Selena also seems to put her relationship with Bieber in perspective. The cover line for her story contains a quote: “I’m 19. I don’t take anything too seriously in my private life.”
Seems that would include Justin. The two were hit be reports that they had broken up several times over the past few months. But the made a show of unity by going out on a very public date. They are now vacationing together in Japan.
