Carly Rae Jepsen Goes Girlish Again At Billboard's Women In Music Event (PHOTOS)

We had such high hopes that as Carly Rae Jepsen grew up, her style would too. Alas, she showed up to Billboard's Women In Music event in her usual girlish fashion.

The 27-year-old pop singer, Billboard's 'Rising Star,' wore a blue Rachel Zoe dress with a ruffled skirt and cap sleeves to the luncheon. And although we'll give her points for those chic metallic Brian Atwood pumps, we didn't love that gargantuan black clutch.

Carly clearly likes her youthful wardrobe, but maybe she should take a page from Billboard's 'Woman of the Year' Katy Perry. She toned down the ruffles and turned up the colour at the event, for a much more refined look.
