There was only one way to kick off this Monday morning right: A close examination of Selena Gomez‘s crazy, over-the-top, fun and sexy outfits from this weekend. The singer seems to be living by her new motto “love yourself first” (which is tattooed on her back), as she showed off her fit frame in a number of daring styles at the Ischia Film Festival in Italy.
Let’s begin with her formal appearances. For the premiere of her new film Rudderless, Gomez chose a sheer polka-dot Emanuel Ungaro maxi dress, complete with oversize pockets (and, we imagine, some tricky undergarment action). She added gold hoop earrings and black Casadei pumps to complete the look. At a press conference the next day, the 21-year-old star bared her white bra in a lace-and-feathers Blumarine ensemble and Casadei pumps. (Nothing quite like mixing a prim silhouette with acres of exposed skin for a head-turning ensemble.) And for a black-tie gala dinner, Gomez had her most risqué fashion moment of the weekend in a black plunging rhinestone-encrusted Kayat gown, which had a thigh-high slit.

The singer also selected a number of body-flaunting ensembles as she explored the Italian city. No fanny pack or white sneakers here — for Gomez’s turista moment, she selected three different Zimmermann looks. First up: a floral-print romper with a metallic sheen, teamed with white Casadei sandals. Next, another floral moment, this time a halter dress featuring a waist cutout, plus the same sandals. And finally, a short white lace onesie, which she wore with sky-high heels for a boat trip, avoiding one potential wardrobe malfunction (no danger of wind-induced flashing here) but courted another (high heels + slippery surface + ocean waves = faceplant).
