Wow! We're loving Kesha's understated look on the August cover of Teen Vogue!
She looks fresh-faced and totally on-trend in a denim button-down and black pussy bow tied around the collar. It's like a discount Saint Laurent look!
Which makes sense since most of the mag's readers are too young to afford Saint Laurent. And there's even a second Saint Laurent-inspired look created with a silver Emporio Armani blazer and Anne Fontaine pussy bow blouse!
In another shot, the 27-year-old looks glamorous in a dotted Guess coat with her hair teased into a sexy bedhead style! This editorial may actually be a first glimpse into Kesha's makeover ever since she returned from rehab. The singer admits she's going for a less ostentatious look, saying:
"The insanity is not gone forever; it's still there. I've only decided to wipe off all the face paint and try to wear beautiful dresses instead of completely insane things. I want to be more conscious of fashion because it's an art form. Growing up relatively poor in the South, I closed myself off from it because it was so far out of my reach."
She also talks about hating to be called pretty in the past. She explained:
"I remember thinking, I don't want to be pretty. Don't call me pretty. If somebody called me that, it was almost offensive—I would put on more eyeliner or draw things down my face. There was a defining moment about six months ago—I think it was a breakup—where I decided that maybe I do want to try to be pretty—I want to just try."
You don't have to try, girl, you're beautiful already!
Finally, she talks about one of her major style inspirations. Kesha said:
"I'm a little bit obsessed with Mick Jagger. When I'm bored, I look through old pictures of him for style ideas."
We can definitely see his inspiration in this shoot!
