It’s that time of year again: When Hollywood stars grace September issue covers, look stunning, and open up about their personal lives and latest career endeavors. For its September 2017 cover, InStyle chose Selena Gomez, who managed to do just that.
Gomez, photographed by Phil Poynter, smolders on the cover in a starry millennial pink Coach 1941 dress—what could be more fitting for a 25-year-old Coach ambassador? Along with a beautiful spread, she serves up a candid interview about her insecurities, her love life, her childhood in the limelight, and her latest entertainment and fashion projects. She discusses where she’s at, both in terms of mental health and career moves, after taking a 90-day break and putting on her “big-girl pants”—“They’re high-waisted,” she jokes.
The biggest reveal of her cover story? Gomez’s latest fashion creation, a handbag she designed in collaboration with Coach, which makes its debut in the photo spread. She talks about the collaboration process with Executive Creative Director Stuart Vevers and raves, “I’m really proud of what I created.”
