American Idol Runner-Up Jessica Sanchez is Edgy at Trevor Project Live 2012 Honoring Katy Perry

American Idol alumni, Jessica Sanchez attended the Trevor Project Live event not only as a young supporter, but a performer. To keep with the night’s themes of empowerment and acceptance, Sanchez performed Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” and from the Dreamgirls musical, “And I Am Telling You.”

In keeping up with her youth, Sanchez sported a playful, form-fitting aubergine dress. She gave life to her face by rocking a bouffant and shinny soft pink lips. To complete her cute, girly look, she wore a pair of bright orange cheeky shoes decorated with gold punk-like spikes. Edgy, but age appropriate nonetheless.

Speaking of shoes, they happen to be her go-to fashion accessory. “Always shoes, always shoes for me,” she explained “like if this could be…a plain dress…but with the shoes, it makes the whole thing.” There you have it, shoes are an outfit’s pièce de résistance, just like her neon hued heels.
