We hope you’re ready to embrace your inner… princess? Fashionista? And discover who you truly are with this completely accurate and scientifically-backed personality test. And all you need to do is say yes to the dress! While working up some new designs for our Bookmojis, we tried to decide which Selection dress we liked the best, so that we could recreate it in adorable emoji form. Shockingly… we couldn’t decide. But we hope you can! We broke down each dress from the iconic Selection series into their basic personality components, so let the complex and in-depth insights into your psyche begin!

Have you decided which you love the most? The classic Selection cerulean? The bold red of The EliteThe Heir‘s stunning silver? Read on to say what your preference says about you!!


What Your Favorite Selection Dress



If you adore The Selection’s cerulean…

The Selection by Kiera Cass

You love the OG Selection series dress, which means you are classic but bold. You don’t have much occasion for a ball gown in your life; like America Singer (because, honestly, who goes to balls anymore?), you’d rather to stay home with family and live your life without all that glamour and drama (America didn’t want to enter the Selection), but if you’re going to make a grand gesture, you’re going to go all in and go big, bold and beautiful.


If you prefer The Elite’s bold scarlet…

The Elite by Kiera Cass

It’s no surprise that your favorite Selection series dress is the red, paneled dress from The Elite. You mean business. You are going to show up to that ball in a gown that will turn heads. You are not afraid to be loud or stand up for what you want in life. But even if you don’t know what you want (*cough* like America in The Elite *cough*) you at least put up a brave front and don’t let anyone tear you down (*cough* Celeste *cough*). Get it, girl.

  • Fun dress fact! The actual color of the dress on the cover of The Elite is fuchsia! Kiera talks more about the dresses on the covers on her blog here.


If you dream about The One’s classic beauty…

The One by Kiera Cass

Oh aren’t you the romantic! You are patient and willing to wait for the right dress (or prince, like Maxon) to come along and you won’t settle for anything less than what your heart truly desires. You are a happy and outgoing person with endless love to give to those who truly deserve it. Some people might think you are a little overly sensitive but really, you know, that you are just full of emotions and you wear your heart out on your sleeve. You aren’t afraid of your feelings, you like to embrace them with a big hug.

  • Fun dress fact! This dress is actually a ball gown!  You can witness this gorgeous dress in action in the trailer for The One!


If you’d love to wear The Heir’s sleek silver…

The Heir by Kiera Cass

The fact that you prefer the grey dress from The Heir means you are edgy, practical and usually the one in charge. Like Eadlyn, in your world, no one is as powerful as you. You aren’t afraid of getting a little help and when you have resources you know exactly how to use them, but you probably prefer being independent and taking care of yourself. On one hand, it can be lonely at the top; on the other hand, you don’t need anybody else. You do you, girl!


If the lilac of The Crown is for you…

The Crown by Kiera Cass

You are a reliable, stable and committed person in your relationships and in your work/school life. You have settled in to who you are as a person. You are ready to make big decisions about what you want to do, where you want to go in life and you absolutely cannot wait to get started. You are always ready and willing to step up when something needs to be done––but you are not necessarily always fighting on your own behalf.
