Prior to her crowd surfing performance and picking up the gongs for ‘Best Push’ and ‘Best Song’, Carly Rae Jepsen took to the red carpet in Frankfurt, Germany for the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards.

The brunette beauty wore a shimmering Johanna Johnson silver lace strapless gown which she styled with a mirror clutch with gold hardware.

Her gown is nice enough, but I wish she cinched in her waist with a silver metal waistband.

What I do love is that deep red lip colour and even with her long blunt bangs, her baby blues really pop.

Speaking to Carly at the event she said, “My style icons are Cate Blanchett, she always looks amazing, I like both the Olsens because they are my height, 5’2” and if they can pull something off maybe I can too! I’ve been watching MTV since I was a little girl so tonight is amazing.”
