Selena Gomez models a blue bikini for her friend Theresa Mingus' swimwear line, La'Mariette
It may be the middle of autumn but Selena Gomez is out here living her best swimsuit life like it's the height of summer and we're so here for it. She's not wearing just any label though, she's supporting her friend and former assistant, Theresa Mingus, who co-founded the brand La'Mariette.
Overnight La'Mariette's Instagram account shared a photo of Selena wearing the heavenly blue two-piece Caroline bikini from the brand's new line. In the snap, Selena appears to be makeup-free with her hair pulled back and flowers tucked behind her ear. In short, she looks like a vision of summery goodness and holy heck, can the cold weather just go away?

Aaaaand here's another full length snap of Sel wearing the set, shared on the brand's account last month:
@selenagomez wearing the CAROLINE TOP & CAROLINE BOTTOM in the print "Day Trip" 😍 "This print was the catalyst for me to rebrand as La Mariette. It feels reflective of me- playful, vivid, and alive. Creating this new collection, it was imperative that every suit and print felt like an extension of me. This print for me feels like a memory. I get that same wash of nostalgia every time I wear it, it reminds me of a day trip Selena and I took when I was considering rebranding my company- we drove down to Newport and spent all day on a boat, laughing and wandering in and out of some incredible vintage stores. One of those days that when you look back you want to relive it. When I am working on a new collection, I don't often look for inspiration on Instagram. More often I find that current of electricity from old photos of my friends' moms, or dope old 80s/90s Sports Illustrated editorials- images where women look athletic and strong and very much real." — @tmarie247

More recently, Selena shared a photo of her wearing the La'Mariette powder blue 'Selena' swimsuit, revealing her kidney transplant scar:
When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar. I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through...and I’m proud of that. T - Congratulations on what you’re doing for women, launching @lamariette whose message is just that...all bodies are beautiful.

Selena's relationship with her friend's brand (which started out as 'Krahs Swim') is ongoing with the singer previously designing a swimsuit for the label last year, especially made to cover her kidney transplant scar.
