When she's not stunning in a millennial pink Coach gown and matching accessories at the Met Gala 2017, or wearing a grey, black lace lined slip dress for a date night with her beau, singer The Weeknd, you'll often find singer Selena Gomez rocking the latest designs straight off the Oscar De La Renta catwalk. Or Proenza Schouler gingham for a shopping trip in New York City. Or Louis Vuitton ensemble for a premiere.

Yeah, she dresses god damn well.

Failing that, the former Disney star seems to be quite partial to her boyfriend's clothes, whether it's his tour merchandise or 'Starboy' printed denim jackets.

However, there's a lot more than donning the nearest clean T-shirt when it comes to Gomez's carefully curated wardrobe, as her stylist Christian Classen knows all too well.

Having worked with the singer to formulate her latest street style looks, as well as her Revival Tour outfits, Classen revealed to Vogue that the 24-year-old's outfits are 'an amplified extension of the style she has for red carpet and streetwear'.

Explaining the importance of focussing on Selena's newfound style credentials and injecting her personality into her fashion choices, Classen added: 'My job is to curate a visual brand that is very specific to each individual client through colour, silhouette, mood and vibe.

'The world then starts to identify and say, "Hey, I want to look like this celebrity or that celebrity". For example, no matter the overall style direction, the pieces I choose for Selena are always clean and classic but have a twist to them. It's like a simple blue jean, but it's deconstructed. Or a classic cat-eye frame, but the lens is red instead of black,' he added.

Black-lensed cat-eye frames, noted. Deconstructed blue jeans, doubly noted.

However, while we might all covet the 'Bad Liar's laid-back street style and elegant wardrobe choices for the red carpet, the star's stylist – who previously worked as the assistant to celebrated fashion stylist, Kate Young – points out that true style comes from knowing how to dress for yourself.

'Tailor everything to your body and only invest in classic staple pieces. Your closet will never age,' he added.

Classen also revealed he doesn't actually like trends, rather he chooses specific looks that make his clients look 'chic, happy, elevated, and beautiful', and advises all women to invest in good shoes.

'You can wear a $10 (£8) dress with beautiful shoes and you look elevated. Cheap shoes with an expensive dress? Automatically looks like a cheap dress,' he added.
