You know how there’s all this talk of Carly Rae Jepsen dressing too young? We agree because the 26-year-old singer — with her propensity for wearing tennis shoes and cutesy skirts — does look extremely twee on many occasions. Wearing a school girl frock with sneakers at the U.S. Open was one (disastrous) example. We get it, she looked sweet and it was for Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day in New York. But she’s not the kid. It’s okay for her to dress her age! Which is why we burst into spontaneous applause when we saw her on the cover of Fashion magazine’s October issue. Girlfriend really lived up to the name of the magazine in that gorgeous, very complementary emerald printed McQ by Alexander McQueen dress and sexy leopard Christian Louboutin pumps, proving that the mid-twenties is a great age to experiment in. Hopefully, she’ll translate this look into future red carpet events. The interview snippets that have been released sound a tad syrupy as she reveals insights like, “Nobody can do Britney again. She did a great job at it. I just want to be the best Carly Rae I can be, ” and “I definitely have a little attraction to bad guys, but they have to be sweethearts underneath. After all, I like to be treated well—it’s important to me.” But we’re going to give the issue a shot anyway, just for that cover. That’s how awesome we think it is.
