Much like the entire fashion industry, Selena Gomez is very down with Vetements' whole "ironically recreating a cheap sweatshirt and slapping a giant price tag on it" thing. For her arrival at Charles de Gaulle airport this morning, she paired a red sweatshirt and matching drawstring track pants by the largely anonymous French fashion collective. This outfit cost $1,400. Celebrities' airport style: it's just like ours, except not really!
To the layman, the ensemble may be difficult to distinguish from your average Champion sweatsuit, but Vetements' iteration invovles a $735 sweatshirt and $665 sweatpants. Of course, you can recreate this look for much, much less.
