Selena Gomez has released a new Spanish song, “De Una Vez,” accompanied by a music video for us to get lost in. Gomez is clearly excited about this new chapter of her career. “This is the beginning of something I’ve wanted to explore for so long,” she tweeted. “I hope you love it as much as I do.” So it makes sense she’d call in a styling team she could trust to bring this romantic story to life. Shirley Kurata and Lauren Levin teamed up for the project, selecting a spring 2021 Rodarte dress with silk flowers from the brand to match. The look was complete with Daniela Villegas Libertad opal earrings, which are a symbol for staying true to yourself and helped to paint the picture of healing — that’s exactly what this song is about.
We talked to Shirley about the styling process and what it was like to work with Selena on set. She confirmed plenty of neat details, including the fact that the Rodarte dress fit like a glove and happened to be the first one Selena tried on, though there were runners-up. The jewelry was also chosen before the dress, and the story of how the glowing Milagro heart came to life is pretty neat, too. Even though this isn’t the type of video where Selena graces us with multiple outfit changes, it’s safe to say she makes an impression in this beautiful floral number alone, and the story behind her ensemble is definitely worth reading.
