Selena Gomez Rocks See-Through Black Top At 'InStyle' Awards— PHOTOS

Sometimes, even the most polished and put together style star needs to throw caution to the wind and get in touch with her wild side when it comes to her ensembles. Selena Gomez wore a see-through top to the InStyle Awards, effectively awakening her dormant "dark" side. But her outfit was only a small part of how she switched things up and showed off her edgy, more punk rock vibe.

Gomez is usually the picture of grace and class on the red carpet or even when she rocks a pantsuit. She never shows too much skin and is fashion forward without being overly trendy. But for this event, she rocked a Louis Vuitton outfit that was comprised of caged top, which showed off her black bra. The bottom featured a poufy, white cloud of a mini skirt.

Sel added pointy-toed, slingback booties and finished her look off with messy, bedhead waves. The Pantene spokesmodel usually opts for glossy, well-kept locks. But the textured waves were the perfect match for the edginess of her outfit.

The outfit had a split personality in the best possible way. Her hair and the top were sexy and daring, while the bottom was darling and sweet, thanks to the soft shape.

Gomez was once again a red carpet winner with her look.
