Ariana Grande may have been born a little late to understand the reference, but her look at the American Music Awards Sunday night inevitably drew comparisons to sultry cartoon vixen Jessica Rabbit, from 1988's Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

The 20-year-old's strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown didn't have a thigh-high split, and Grande accessorized with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Tacori jewels rather than arm-length gloves, but her flowing tresses were more than a little similar to Jessica's Veronica Lake-esque 'do.

Grande won new artist of the year and gave a breathless thank-you speech. She also performed on the show: Watch her rendition of "Tattooed Heart" below.
