WASHINGTON, United States of Amerca – It really is a wonderful world of Disney.

Almost all of today’s young (and not-so-young) stars all started with Disney; stars like Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling and Christina Aguilera.

The younger batch includes Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Demi Lovato, newly-engaged Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber’s sweetheart, Selena Gomez.

Gomez, who started as one of the kids playing with the magical purple dinosaur Barney, rose to fame in Disney’s “Wizards of Waverly Place.” She is also a singer, making music with her band Selena and the Scene, and churning hits like “Who Says,” “Hit the Lights” and “Love You Like a Love Song.”

And of course, she also has her own fashion line, Dream Out Loud, available in affordable prices in K Mart for her young fans.

Like her contemporaries, Gomez is showing her fans how much she has grown — by way of a racy photoshoot for the July cover of Elle magazine.

One layout shows the 19-year-old in a sexy pose, wearing a red tube bra; another shows her clad in a metal chain dress, the neckline almost dropping to her waist.
