Carly Rae Jepsen: See the First Photos of Her as Cinderella!
Carly Rae Jepsen’s is truly a Cinderella story. Once upon a time, she was just a simple girl from British Columbia, Canada, until one day she got invited to a huge ball (a.k.a. CanadianIdol Season 5). From there on out, this princess’s story has never been the same.
“Sooooo... I’m ready to spill my NYC secret. I am going to be playing Cinderella on Broadway starting Feb. 4th! Dream come true,” she shared via her Instagram last month. The 28-year-old songstress takes over from Tony Award-nominated actress Laura Osnes as she concludes her one-year run with the show next month. Fran Drescher (the nanny with the world-famous voice) will also be joining the cast as Cinderella’s stepmother.
A week after announcing the big news, Carly took to her Instagram once again to share two sneak peeks at her new role as a princess.
“First day on set and they let me try on the BIG wedding dress! They had to bribe me with smarties to take it off. @CinderellaBway let’s play dress up again tmr please! #CinderellaBway,” she captioned a pic of her all dolled up in a satiny gown. The only thing missing: Cinderella’s tiny mice friends and a fairy godmother or two.
In the other photo, we get a look at what we think is Carly’s dress for the ball. “And this is the moment I tried on the glass slipper for the first time. @Cinderellabway it fits! Xo #CinderellaBway,” she wrote.
Cindy’s Prince Charming doesn’t make an appearance in these photos but since she’s trying on her wedding dress, we’re guessing he did call her. Maybe.
