Carly Rae Jepsen is 26, a fact which just blew at least one of our minds here at HuffPost Style. Given her bubblegum pop hits and her squeaky-clean appearance, the pop star comes off more as a perky teenager than someone the same age as Lady Gaga.

But Jepsen might be trying to blow past her youthful image, starting by dipping a toe into the world of couture. The Canadian "Call Me Maybe" singer poses for Canada's Fashion magazine in a more sexed-up outfit than we've ever witnessed her in. Rocking a snake print Alexander McQueen dress and Christian Louboutin leopard print heels (AMAZING), Jepsen sports her trademark bangs and long flowing brunette hair.

Inside, the singer dons more adventurous threads, like a dress made solely out of feathers. She even makes a fashion metaphor to describe her new album, Kiss, out in September:

"My new songs are like clothes done by Versace or Moschino," she says. "My music is bejeweled, it’s colorful, it’s romantic, it shines.”

Er.... okay.

Can Carly use style to pull off a Britney Spears-eque transition out of teen pop stardom? Peep the cover below and check out more pics from the photo shoot over at Just Jared.
