Carly Rae Jepsen is Taylor Swift-level surprised!
We’re not exactly sure how the “I’m so surprised!!!” face got so popular, but over the years it’s been a go-to facial expression for many a celebrity who are all like, “Who, me? I won a VMA???” or “That Grammy award is for ME??” That said, up until now, perpetual surprised face-maker Taylor Swift has had the monopoly on accepting awards with a gaping mouth and humbly shocked expression (please see here and here and here and basically all “Taylor Swift surprised face” Google Images), but yesterday, while heading to Sirius’ studios in New York City, we kiiinda think Carly Rae Jepsen gave Taylor a “surprised face” run for her money!
We’ll also alert you to the fact that Carly’s not the only one who’s looked Taylor Swift-caliber surprised in recent months! Katy Perry had a facial panic attack at Nickelodeon’s 2013 Kids’ Choice Awards, and Lana Del Rey worked her zygomaticus major and risorius muscles that time she was greeted with flowers. That said, Carly’s technique here is flawless (Do you SEE that full mouth extension?!), so we kinda think she deserves second place in the “I’m SO EFFING surprised!!” rankings, only behind Taylor, of course. Plus, extra points for smiling big while wearing a cute blazer (and not telling the paparazzo to eff off — kindness is key!).
