No sombrero amigo? Justin Bieber would have been better off without the wooly hat in sunny Mexico yesterday
He will have become a huge fan of Mexico after pairing up with sexy senorita Selena Gomez.
So surely Justin Bieber should have gone the whole hog by wearing a sombrero as he went for a stroll in the Central American country yesterday.
Instead the teen idol wore an unseasonal woolly hat as he was spotted arriving in the swelteringly sunny country for a romantic break.
Whether Texan Selena, whose father Ricardo is Mexican, will have been impressed with her 17-year-old lover's unseasonal gear is unclear.
But he was certainly trying to stay cool in the heat by wearing a short sleeve blue plaid shirt and splatter patterned white shorts.
The latter showed off his famous new Jesus tattoo, which seemed to be healing up nicely.
Selena, 19, meanwhile looked far more glamorous in a revealing outfit of vest, denim hotpants and furry Ugg-style boots.

No doubt she will be keen to spend some time with the teenage pop hunk after he was spotted revelling with bikini-clad beauties this week.
He was literally surrounded by girls eager for his attention as he soaked up some rays at the beach in Los Angeles, California on Thursday.
Justin was seen laughing and joking with the group of girls who appeared at ease around the singing sensation.
However while some of the bikini-clad girls appeared to be unimpressed by Bieber's superstar status Justin did encounter a large group of fans, who were overexcited by his presence.

The girls quickly swarmed around the Canadian and indulged in a photo session on the sands.
Of course always one to please his fans, Justin obliged hugging the group of girls and putting on the charm.While the teenager was more than happy to lap up the attention he has been spotted romancing his girlfriend Selena Gomez increasingly over the past few months.
The young couple have appeared stronger than ever after claims were made that Justin had fathered a baby with a female fan Mariah Yeater.
Justin denied the accusations and even submitted to a DNA test while Selena put a show of support during the ordeal.

Selena and Justin went public about their relationship in March last year stepping out onto the red carpet together at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in March.
They kept their relationship private for a number of months prior.
The Mexican sombrero was invented to deal with the demands of the physical environment, providing shade from the harsh sun.
It has become a national cultural symbol, and is often used in traditional Mexican celebrations.
Mexican musician Vincente Fernandez, boxer Juan Manuel Marquez and cartoon mouse Speedy Gonzales are all famous sombrero wearers.
