Selena Gomez channels Princess Diana in the chicest knitted minidress

In Europe, understated elegance is always a good choice. This is even more true at the Cannes Film Festival, and Selena Gomez just proved it. One of the stars of the upcoming musical crime comedy Emilia Perez , she was spotted wearing another similar outfit on her first day out in the fashionable city on the French Riviera on May 17. Princess Anna's suit.

Selena's Diana Coe Outfit

Stylist Erin Walsh was behind Gomez's outfit. At first glance, it looks like they chose a skirt suit for Gomez's outing; the flared ruffles at her waist, pockets, and gold buttons all gave the impression of a jacket matching a ruffled skirt. However, Gomez actually wore a vintage-inspired dress—specifically, a white knitted ruffled mini dress from Self-Portrait.

This look was Princess Diana from top to bottom. The late Princess of Wales was famous for wearing dresses, often opting for classic colors, fitted waists and large buttons. Her accessories also tended to be color-coordinated, like Gomez's small white handbag and slingback pumps. Additionally, Gomez accessorized with gold disc earrings by Jennifer Meyer and a pair of vintage white Etnia Barcelona sunglasses, which may be another piece from Diana's iconic fashion archives.

Matching accessories

All of Gomez's aforementioned accessories tied her look together perfectly. For example, her Roger Vivier two-tone patent leather slingback pumps are also described by the brand as adding "vintage glamor." They come in black and white, so they match her Aspinal London white Midi Mayfair Raffia Bag. Her sunglasses were also white and her gold earrings matched the statement buttons on her dress. (Fun fact: Another princess was wearing the same earrings a week ago.)

Shop her look

For a price, it's possible to recreate Gomez's exact look. This dress is by no means cheap, but at $495, it's less than $500. So are her $259 sunglasses. But get ready for more of a wow factor with her accessories.
