Selena Gomez isn’t quite a fashion icon yet, but she’s starting to have her moments — much like the transition Posh Spice made to Victoria Beckham. Sel has had some fabulous red carpet looks, but she’s still working on upping her casual style game.

When it comes to upping her style game, the pop star is definitely open to trying new things. Selena recently arrived back at the Los Angeles Airport from her Paris trip in dirty sneakers — sneakers that were intentionally already distressed and dirty at the time of purchase.

Selena arrived in a long, white button-down shirt and black jeans from Alice + Olivia, which she layered underneath a sweater cape by Barrie Glamour.

The “Hands to Myself” singer polished her airport style with a Louis Vuitton top handle bag and the distressed “Superstar” sneakers by Golden Goose.

The usually accommodating Selena calmly made her way through the crowd with her earphones plugged in, ignoring everyone around her.

We can’t really blame her — with the rude questions that the paparazzi throw her way, we’re surprised she hasn’t punched somebody in the face yet a la Kendall Jenner.

Selena must’ve felt the need to get more comfortable for the trans-Atlantic flight. Before sporting the dirty sneakers, she was wearing the Soebedar ‘Shania’ mesh pumps to go about her last day of promotional duties in London.

It seems like the Golden Goose sneakers are Sel’s current favorite traveling shoes, because she also wore them when she caught an earlier train ride at London’s King’s Cross railway station. The 23-year-old was cool and comfy in a white Alice + Olivia “Quiana” sheer sweater, a Rodarte x & Other Stories suede and fur jacket, black James Perse leggings and Krewe Du Optic “St. Louis Bengal” sunglasses.

One fan gifted her with roses, and another even boldly went in for a hug! Selena’s bodyguard didn’t look too happy about that.

It’s well believed that Chuck Taylors look better when they’re worn out. It seems Golden Goose took the grunge look into consideration while making these Adidas copycats. The “Supeswere intentionally distressed with frayed leather edges and muddied soles.

Do you think this trend will catch on?
