Selena Gomez candidly discussed her biggest fashion moments over her more than 10 years in the spotlight in a new video with Vogue. Among the biggest things she revealed in the 11-minute video? The role her close friend Taylor Swift played in the way Gomez dressed in her late teens as she started her pop star career.
While reflecting on what she wore in her “Love You Like a Love Song” music video, she discussed how the strapless dress caused a little controversy—and how she generally looked toward Swift as she navigated her early pop-star days fashion.
“Yeah, this was fun with me and my stepdad,” Gomez said, reviewing the look. “We got into a little bit of an argument. It was a lot of boobs. Ah, he’s just protective. It’s fun. I was 18 years old. This was ‘Love You Like a Love Song,’ the video that we did for it, which to this day, honestly, is still one of my favorite songs. I thought it was my time to cross over and become a pop star, whatever that was to me then. It just was really fun. I think it was the first time I tried to be high fashion, and you can laugh at that because that’s not high fashion. To be honest, when I was younger, Taylor [Swift] inspired me a lot when it comes to wardrobe and stage outfits. But you wouldn’t be—no, you’re never going to see me wear that again, no.”

Gomez also opened up about her 2015 Met Gala look and how being part of the creation of her Vera Wang dress helped her embrace her body as an adult. “I fluctuate a lot with my weight, and I remember this night specifically, I didn’t feel good about my body,” she said. “So what was really amazing was that I actually got a chance to work on the dress that fit my body. I had such a beautiful time shaping this dress. I think that we came together and built something really beautiful and something that fit me really well. That was one of the moments where I was like, I don’t have to be that 19-year-old body shape anymore, because I’m not.” You can watch Gomez’s full video here.
