Most of us would not want to spend our formative teenage years in front of the cameras.

However, Selena Gomez is one star who has managed to transition from child actress to bonafide A-lister while putting barely a fashion footstep wrong.

The actress and singer, 28, made her screen debut on children's television series Barney & Friends, and rose to fame as the lead character in Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place, which premiered in 2007.

Texas-born Gomez, who has also starred in a number of films such as Spring Breakers, branched into music in 2009 with the release of her debut album.

The multi-hyphenate is a familiar face at many a premiere, party and red carpet bash; Gomez has a number of American Music Awards, Billboard Women in Music awards, MTV and Nickelodeon awards to her name.

With a penchant for labels including Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy, Gomez has morphed from Noughties fads to timeless high fashion in the past decade.

Here, we take a look at how the star's style has evolved throughout her time in the spotlight.
