Kelly Clarkson gives the little black dress and modern pick-me-up. The “Since U Been Gone” singer posed on the purple carpet for the “American Song Contest” semi-finale in Los Angeles last night.
For the outfit, Clarkson donned a structured dress from Asos that had a low neckline paired with dramatic puffy sleeves for an eye-catching touch. It also had a silver zipper down the middle that helped join her puffy bodice with her paneled and sturdy skirt.
A versatile closet staple across the decades, the little black dress is noted for its classic style and chic sensibility. Once a uniform for the working class, the little black dress was reclaimed by high society in the 1920s after Coco Chanel designed an iconic ink-colored sheath dress marketed toward the rich.
Clarkson kept her accessories simple and only opted for a pair of chunky silver hoops from Jennifer Fisher and a dainty gold necklace.
When it comes to clothing, Clarkson gravitates towards sophisticated and modern silhouettes. For example, she recently donned a pink, orange and green animal print mini dress paired with black leather ankle booties while on the purple carpet for “American Song Contest.” Also, she wore a black leather dress with a cold-shoulder silhouette coordinated with black ankle booties while on the purple carpet again for the same show a month ago.
