When a song like Call Me Maybe spends a gazillion weeks on the international charts and is "covered" by everyone from Justin Bieber to Barack Obama, it's hard to ignore the cute young thing behind it.
Canadian pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen, 26, has a colourful and quirky personal style that's perhaps not as instantly crowd-pleasing as her infectious summer ditty.
But her squeaky clean, youthful image - she also has a penchant for smoky eyes, sleek bangs and leg-baring outfits - will grow on you.
At the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto, Jepsen walked on the dark side for once in a shiny black halter gown by Sachin + Babi featuring thigh-flashing double front slits.
She paired the gown with black and metallic T-bar sandals from B Brian Atwood.
She took the goth look to another level by adding a splash of colour via a crystal-encrusted statement bib necklace from Dannijo.
But Jepsen returned to her comfort zone when she supported US singer Katy Perry at the Los Angeles premiere of the latter's concert movie Katy Perry: Part Of Me.
She was hard to miss in a figure- hugging electric blue Cengiz Abazoglu silk one-shouldered cocktail dress with draping and woven detailing.
She accessorised perfectly with a multicoloured floral pattern clutch and trendy neon yellow pumps from Aldo.
Her two playful "California girl" looks for the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles were equally adorable.
While other starlets were wearing feminine summery dresses on the red carpet, Jepsen looked way more chic and charming in a Lisa Ho ivory jacket-and-shorts suit bearing a fun palm tree print.
I love the complementary black Kate Spade Tiki bar clutch, but felt a little let down by her unimaginative clunky black Aldo patent pumps.
However, she fearlessly bounced back for her live performance at the same event in a cutesy lavender and gold satin polka-dot Ani Lee strapless playsuit.
Now,this is hardly age-appropriate dressing.
But despite adding matching stockings and contrasting white hi-top sneakers, it's a small miracle the whole thing didn't end up a disaster.
Not bad at all for a newbie.
