Selena Gomez received high praise as she stunned in a string bikini while posing by a waterfall back in 2021. The Wolves singer is still fronting media outlets amidst her ongoing drama with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber and the Canadian singer's wife, Hailey Bieber, but this set of images came long before eyebrows had taken over the internet.
Selena Gomez In String Bikini Is 'Glowing' By A Waterfall
Showing Off Stunning Curves
The swimwear snaps were shared on swimwear brand La'Mariette's Instagram. Selena is close friends with the label's co-founder and former executive assistant, Theresa Mingus.
Stunning as she showed off her healthy curves and womanly silhouette, Selena posed in a series of images while backed by dramatic rocks and waterfalls.

And, more importantly, might we be getting a reboot?
Bikini Game Strong
Going super-tiny and multicolored, Selena modeled a halter and tie-dye bikini with a plunging neckline and string details on the bottoms. The Texas native drew attention to her shapely legs and toned arms, also turning heads as she ditched her usual brunette locks for a peroxide-blonde finish.
Selena also championed the criss-cross banded stomach trend as she posed barefoot and exuded confidence.
A caption shouted Selena out, reading, "@selenagomez is GLOWING in the Marie Top & Bottom."
Selena has also collaborated with La'Mariette, joining stars including model Gigi Hadid and actress Demi Moore in retailing swimwear collabs.
Don't Dare Shame Her
Selena has now overtaken Kylie Jenner to become the most-followed woman on Instagram, even amid her drama with 26-year-old Hailey Bieber. The singer and actress also seems to be gaining followers on account of her body-positive mindset and refusal to be shamed. Selena often gains or loses weight on account of the medication she takes for her autoimmune condition, Lupus.

“I was getting a lot of hate for my body and ‘you’re gaining weight’ [commentary] and so I was in Mexico and I was just feeling all of this stuff and I would be lying to you if I said it didn’t kind of hurt my feelings, but I kind of channeled that into my music,” Gomez said back in 2015.
'Hard To Feel Comfortable'
More recently, Selena has opened up about struggling to feel confident with the immense media focus on her.
“Being in the public eye from such an early age certainly comes with a lot of pressure. It’s hard to feel comfortable when you feel like everyone is watching, judging and commenting," she has also stated, per Us Weekly.
Most-Followed On Instagram
Selena now boasts 396 million IG followers. She gained over 10 million fans in under a week this year.
