Selena Gomez is a CNN Hero

Selena Gomez is a CNN Hero

Disney starlet Selena Gomez hugs new pal Maria Ruiz from El Paso, Texas after awarding her the HERO award at the Second Annual CNN Heroes: An All Star Tribute held at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday.

Several times a week, Ruiz crosses the border into Juarez, Mexico, bringing food, clothing and toys to hundreds of impoverished children and their families. What a heart!

The 16-year-old Wizards of Waverly Place star looked all sophisticated in a ruffled BCBG white top, pencil skirt and simple black pumps!

  • Beth

    I MISS HER OLD HAIR!!

    I LOVE HER, BUT IT LOOKS AWFUL NOW!

    SORRY SWEETIE

  • Krissy Fantasy

    OMG!
    She looks so gorgeous <3
    the bangs totally suit her :)
    love the outfit as well + with the short little hair cut
    precious (L)
    lovelovelovelove it!
    GO SELENA!

    OK all of you shut up!
    like seriously
    IT’s her style, not yours.
    gosh!
    pathetic much?
    AND who says she’s copying Vanessa and Miley?

    OK?
    EVERY damn celeb has bangs and short hair..
    that’s the new look these days.
    so get your facts straight -.-
    ASHLEY. VANESSA. MILEY. DEMI. SELENA. EVERY FREAKIN GIRL HAS BANGS!!!

    There ALL beautiful- DIFFERENT
    talented- and famous girls from ALL OVER
    :)
    who cares if they have the same hairstyle.
    THEY all still like each other and are friends.
    They don’t let one haircut start a cat fight.
    GOSH.
    pathetic losers much, trying to make these come against each other?
    =/
    i find it stupid, that you guys are trying to make them, against each other, just cuz of one hair cut.
    honestly- what morons !

    PLUS i even i have bangs + short hair -.-
    does that mean..im copying them?
    uhhhh…noo…
    i got this haircut before all of them!
    AT LEAST sel’s’ creating something NEW – minus what all of you have to say.
    SHE’s 16 years old- i think she’s old enough to make her own decisions , on her hair, and style.

    xoxox
    love sel

  • Taiane

    Love Ya .
    Brazilian Girl :D
    Selena come too Brazil

  • Aya

    cute hair.

  • mi

    She looks gorgeous. =)

  • mariee

    I don’t think that she’s “copying” vanessa, I mean, she’s young, and maybe vanessa’s her role model…she’s really really young to actually know her own style…she’s trying different things and I understand that…I wanted to be sooo like emma watson when I was younger…until I discovered what was best for me and my body :)

  • brie2009

    I like her hair but it doesnt go well with that outfit. If she went with a high poof pony tail or hair let down with curls she would have looked better with that outfit.

  • J

    LOVE IT <3333333333333333333333

    Selena haters: PISS OFF.

  • Mia

    #31 THANK YOU!!!!! What the hell is with this all “she copying Vanessa crap” does anybody remember when Selena got her bangs cut first…

    and second of all that’s the way everybody poses in Hollywood!!!!
    Look at Taylor swift, Miley Cyrus…Ashley Tisdale….bigger celebrities like Beyonce ….THEY ALL POSE THAT WAY….SO MAYBE THEY ALL ARE COPYING VANESSA!!!!

    For Christ Sake!!!!

  • NICK

  • Mandy

    im so sick of all the disney stars
    selena has so much talent…she should be doing BIG things
    plus all the disney stars are basically one person (she looks like a combination of miley cyrus vanessa hudgens and brenda song)
