We’ll never say never to watching Canadian pop stars, Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen perform, so last night’s 100th Grey Cup was a not only a treat for our ears but also a treat for our eyes because we get to revel in their wardrobe choices.
Bieber had a big weekend with his sartorial selections from meeting Prime Minister Stephen Harper in a train conductor inspired set of overalls and a backwards cap to performing at the halftime show in an all leather harem pants, black leather tank top, and a single glove (an ode to Michael Jackson, perhaps?). Lately, JBiebs is all about the harem pant and has worn almost identical pairs of pants in red, grey, black, and white—while performing and hanging out with Selena Gomez. The set of overalls he decided to wear to meet our Prime Minister came with a lot of backlash but Harper cleared it all up by tweeting “In fairness to Justin Bieber, I told him I would be wearing my overalls too”. It seems that overalls could truly be making a comeback, after all we did see a fuchsia pair walk down Phillip Lim’s Spring runway.
As for Carly Rae Jepsen’s Grey Cup look, it was more age appropriate than usual (at long last). The 26-year-old singer famous for her hit “Call Me Maybe” wore all black in a tight motorcycle jacket, fluffy chiffon skirt, and platform heels. We were expecting to see Carly Rae Jepsen in an Evan Biddell dress from his Spring 2013 collection after she Instagrammed photos of her and the designer, thanking him for the dresses, but perhaps they were a little too far out for a football crowd.
In the end, the Toronto Argonauts won and the Calgary Stampeders lost, but we were only watching for the halftime show, and Carly Rae Jepsen and Justin Bieber didn’t let us down.
