Sabrina Carpenter low-key slays every time she steps out. And I’m not the only one who thinks so — just ask Fashion Twitter, which has dubbed the musician’s style “Bratz girl fashion.”

Strangely enough, Carpenter’s style isn’t celebrated as much as it should be. That can (and must) be remedied — especially, given that the “Nonsense” singer has been steadily cementing her status as a fashion week regular, attending New York and Paris legs to sit in the front row of her favorite designers’ shows.

She also rocked her Met Gala appearance, adding brownie points to the fashion set. Plus, she’s been dressed by some of fashion’s most coveted designers, turning out on red carpets like a pro. The most fascinating — and utterly enjoyable — part of seeing her style evolution, however, is that she seems totally in-tuned with her personal style.

The Tall Girl star loves all sorts of cut-outs, from subtle and tiny to utterly exaggerated; she enjoys co-ord sets and bra tops; and she can glam up any look with her expert play on materials and textures. She definitely has her own fashion DNA, often leaning towards edgy glam Barbie.

Ahead, 15 of Carpenter’s best outfits from the red carpet and beyond. Because it’s time to recognize the artist’s style for what it is: a big slay.

Straight from Paco Rabanne’s Fall 2023 runway, Carpenter’s Oscars after-party look was a saucy sheer number equipped with bejeweled nipple pasties (a favorite of the night). Plus, the skirt’s low-cut draping made her look like a Greek statue.

Let’s all take a moment for this masterclass in proportions. Flawlessly elongating her silhouette, the “Nonsense” singer wore a teeny crop top with billowing sleeve details, paired with a micro mini with a long train.

Carpenter covered her crop top and undies co-ord set with a see-through, sequined mini skirt, to serve the popular no-pants look. Only she could turn the cheugy chevron print into something cool and current.

The sequin and lace mini dress itself — with its shiny tiered ruffles — is already a scene-stealer. But styling the ‘fit with messy bangs and platform peep-toes only added to its effortlessly girly-punk vibe.

Carpenter’s Savage X Fenty Show look may just be a simple white tee, but with that studded belt and bold red lip? It’s a sizzling (pantsless) take I bet RiRi herself appreciated.

Even a simple, structured blazer dress looks oh-so-stylish (and not at all business casual boring) on Carpenter.
