The former child star teamed her cute frock with a pair of comfortable white leather pumps, while toting her belongings in a maroon leather handbag from her collaboration with Coach.

Wearing her raven locks scraped back from her face, the Come And Get It hitmaker injected a bolt of color to her ensemble with a slick of dark berry lipstick.

Selena has been based in New York since earlier this summer when she moved into a $16,000-a-month apartment in Greenwich Village with her Grammy-winning musician boyfriend The Weeknd, 27.

The actress started dating the Starboy hitmaker – real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye – in January, just weeks after his split from long-term girlfriend, supermodel Bella Hadid, 21, a former friend of Selena’s.

The move from Los Angeles to New York City came when Selena landed a role in Woody Allen’s as-yet-untitled new project alongside the likes of Elle Fanning, Jude Law and Timothée Chalamet.

Selena has been back at work in recent weeks after revealing she had undergone a secret transplant when she suffered kidney failure back in May.

The star’s best friend Francia Raisa, 29, steppedin as a kidney donor to help after Selena was put on the transplant list – and was found to be a match.

Selena said in a heartwarming statement at the time: ‘I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of.

‘So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.

‘I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you.

‘Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery.

‘And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me.

‘I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.’

The two have long been friends, after first meeting nine years ago at a Disney and ABC Family charity event at the Children’s Hospital when Selena was just 15.

They call one another ‘sister’ and Francia was at Selena’s side through her highly-publicized breakup with Justin Bieber, 23, in 2015.
