Selena Gomez mixed business with sheer sophistication in Los Angeles Wednesday as she made her way to Jimmy Kimmel’s studio to be a guest on his show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

The 22-year-old channeled “Scandal’s” powerful Olivia Pope, a crisis manager for the president who is played by Kerry Washington, as she wore a navy dress and sleek updo.

She posted a photo of the dress, adorned with a thigh-high slit, on her Instagram, captioning it “#oliviapopestyle.”

 

The former “Disney” star sat down for an interview with Ellen DeGeneres Monday, and said it was difficult growing up in the public eye. She started filming “Wizards of Waverly Place” when she was 15.

“So, I know I’m not perfect, but I know I have a lot of people that support me and love me. I don’t know, I don’t want to let anyone down. So I just try to be the best I can be. It’s awkward being 20…in our 20s.” (RELATED: Selena Gomez Is Stunning At Movie Premiere)

The newly single actress told Kimmel Wednesday that she rarely gets to talk to her fans when she sees them because it’s “a cloud of chaos” and people waiting to take selfies with her.
