Carly Rae Jepsen Has a Totally Surprising New Look

Carly Rae Jepsen Has a Totally Surprising New Look

We barely recognized her!

By Jenny Berg

Carly Rae Jepsen and summertime hits go together like sun and sand. Since she splashed onto the scene with "Call Me Maybe" in 2012, the Canadian pop star has put out other infectious tunes we really, really, really, really, really, really can't stop humming along to.

But though her musical style has remained solidly upbeat, the star has changed her look slowly but surely. And you won't believe how grownup and edgy she looked at this past weekend's Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. Before the big reveal, let's take a look back at some of her earlier looks.


For the "Crazy Good Summer Concert," the singer turned up in a look that was her signature at the time. Bright lipstick, blunt, piecey bangs, and flirty dresses were par for the course—as were cleverly mismatched shoes.


By 2013, Carly had traded her brunette 'do for a fiery red one. She continued rocking short, girly dresses that made her look like the edgiest girl at prom—and the one with the most expensive taste. (The dress here is by Moschino; the shoes are Jill Stuart.) Also around this time, the singer traded in a bubble-gum-pink pout for a nude, glossy shine, and started dabbing on darker eye makeup.


By 2014, Carly had started gravitating toward darker colors—and her taste in silhouettes morphed from girly to ladylike.



Last year, the pop star stepped out to the Much Music Awards with darker hair chopped into a lob. She sizzled in a hot-pink dress with a thigh-high slit and cutouts, while keeping her makeup subtle.


Are you ready for it? At Pitchfork, 30-year-old Carly fit right in with the crowd of indie rockers. She wore a romper with a plunging V-neck, and a super-short hairstyle with shattered bangs.

When she wasn't performing, Carly listened in on Blood Orange's set in a sleek look with flowery pants, a boatneck top, and the festival must-have: a cross-body bag. We can't wait to see more looks from the spunky chanteuse.
