You Won't Fully Appreciate How Sexy Selena Gomez's 2016 Was, Until You Take a Look at These Pictures
She might have taken a little break this year — self-care is important! — but Selena Gomez's 2016 was her hottest yet. The singer and actress toured the world this Summer, and while she was at it, she had even more fun than she did in 2015, wearing skimpy outfits on vacation (and sharing pictures on Instagram), flirty dresses on the red carpet, and even posing topless for GQ's May 2016 issue. With her recent return to the spotlight at the 2016 American Music Awards, we can only expect even more from Selena in 2017. See her hottest moments, and then check out her best Instagram photos of all time.
