Demi Lovato has gone from Disney star to ballad belter, and her red carpet look is evolving into one that’s head-turning, mature and even a little bit playful. Demi Lovato’s style is all about long, loose hair, rocker accessories, and the occasional dramatic lip color. She’s into wearing dresses with a shorter hemline, but tends to lean towards low-cut or shoulder-baring dresses over leg-revealing mini skirts.

Demi is channeling Hollywood’s golden age with this look. Her naturally dark hair has all-over red highlights and her wide curls are arranged elegantly around her face. She chose a bold red lip color and paired it with false lashes and a thin line of black eyeliner on her top lids only. Her maroon gown is floor length with a plunging neckline, which proves this former Disney star is ready to come into her own.

Get the look: Animal print dress, peep toe heels, loose waves.
Wild was the name of Demi Lovato’s style when she appeared on a late night talk show sporting a leopard dress. The drapey fabric hugs her curves just right, while the bare shoulders add a flirty element and the asymmetrical hemline brings the dress from boring to wow. She paired her dress with simply black peep toe heels and her styled her signature long hair in loose curls, which she likely ran her fingers through to give it that naturally-touseled effect.

Get the look: Crystal bangles, cocktail rings, metallic beaded dress.
Demi has said that she l-o-v-e-s to rock out, and her edgy accessories prove that she knows how to channel the glammiest gal rockers behind the mic. She started with a metallic dress embellished with beads, crystals, sequins and sparkles. Then she painted her nails with silver sparkle polish and slipped on two cocktail rings- one that’s crystal-encrusted and the other a black band. Her bangles are also metallic, and of two different widths.

She’s also sporting a black tattoo of a cross on her hand… but you might want to think twice before you ink yourself for prom! A temporary tattoo or even a marker could do the trick just as well.

Get the look: Sweet white dress, leather jacket, red lips.
Demi Lovato’s style has evolved from good girl to edgy rocker to diva glam. Here, she manages to combine all of those elements and pull them off seamlessly. Her high-waisted white dress is cinched with a black leather belt, which plays perfectly off her leather jacket. Her matte red lips round out the look by bringing a pop of color to her ensemble’s black and white color scheme, while her long, loose waves bring an air of femininity. Demi’s cocktail ring and her stack of bangles are the perfect sparkly accessories for this look.

Get the look: Gold eye shadow, peach lips, messy bun, pale peach dress.
Grecian goddess hanging on the beach, anyone? Demi looks perfectly serene wearing these earth tones, and her makeup shows off her natural beauty without being too harsh. Her pale peach gown is floor-length, flowy and boasts a v-neck. Her long locks are swept back into a loose bun, with a few pieces pulled out to frame her face. Her eyes are lightly lined in black eyeliner while gold shimmer shadow highlights the inner corners of her eye and brow bones. Her lips are glossed with a shade of peach that’s just a hair lighter than her dress, and gold earrings round out the look.

Get the look: Chandelier earrings, high ponytail, halter dress.
When the Hollywood temps climb up, Demi sweeps her hair off her shoulders into a flirty ponytail. Not one to slick her hair back, Demi keeps her locks wavy and creates a bump in the front that adds volume and detail to her ‘do. She adds teardrop chandelier earrings to the look, which play nicely off her halter dress. She keeps her makeup simple, with just a touch of black eyeliner and pale pink lips that mirror her natural color.
