Just when we thought that a Selena Gomez x Louis Vuitton partnership was in the bag, Olivier Rousteing has us reconsidering.

The creative director of Balmain caught our attention after he shared a  photo from Marie Claire‘s June 2016 cover shoot of the pop singer wearing one of his signature beaded dresses. The shoutout and the photo caption (“Selena x Balmain”) has us wondering if the Kardashian-Jenner’s favorite designer could be tapping Gomez for something big at Balmain.

Unlike many other celebrities, the 23-year-old singer doesn’t wear Balmain too often, and when she does it’s usually a pared-down version of Rousteing’s glitzier style. So, the two working together would be pretty unexpected compared to her long established relationship with Nicolas Ghesquière and Louis Vuitton.

Perhaps Rousteing was just showing his love for Gomez in one of his designs. Not to mention it’s an easy way to get some likes considering that Gomez is the most followed person on Instagram. So savvy, Olivier! For now, we’ll keep our eyes peeled for any sign of a potential partnering between these two powerhouses.
