Gomez: Fashion faux pas' are fun

Selena Gomez sometimes shakes her head at the outfits she wore just last week.

The former Disney star is a style icon for her many fans and has been picked as the face of Adidas' Neo range.

Yesterday she hosted the sportswear brand's Fall/Winter 14 catwalk show in New York, looking gorgeous in a black jumpsuit from the collection and sleek black high-tops. But the 22-year-old doesn't always feel like she gets it right.

"When I look back at my style, it's almost like looking at a yearbook. You know how you look back at pictures from when you were in high school, and you're like, 'Why on earth did I wear that?'" she laughed to

"Well, that happens to me, but I'm looking at a picture from, like, last week. Sometimes I get it so right, but other times not. But you know what, that's the fun part of fashion. I like to try different things, and if it doesn't work, it doesn't work. I'm not afraid of making mistakes."

The runway yesterday was set up to look like a schoolyard, with rows of colourful bicycles and concrete steps with green railings. Preppy and sporty looks hit the catwalk, with skinny jeans, printed sweaters and plenty of sneakers on display.

It was perfected for a back-to-school wardrobe, and Selena shared what she would buy if she was gearing up for a new semester.

"You have to have some good tights, a boyfriend-fit cardigan or sweater, cute tank tops, scarves - lots of layers!" she enthused.

"That's the general vibe I go for. It's really not worth stressing out about what to wear for the first day of school though... by the end of the week, everyone's in sweats!"
