With the upcoming release of Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers, Selena Gomez's PR team is clearly on a rampage to transform this Disney starlet's image from squeaky-clean to sexy and adult in time to make her believable in this very edgy film co-starring James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens, another former Disney kid who's already come a long way in that transitional period.

It's not her sexiness that's on display in these two images, but her supposed — and as-yet-unconfirmed — appeal to a more mature audience. Despite covering Glamour and Elle in recent memory, this is her first really credible foray into the distinctly non-tween world of high fashion.
