Love It Or Leave It: Katy Perry’s Nerd Girl Chic

Obviously this outfit Katy Perry wore to see The xx is terrible. But I have a bit of a soft spot for it, because it reminds me so much of the clothes mid-’90s costume designers would put the nerdy hot girl in before she had her life-altering makeover scene. Like, I think Rachel Leigh Cook wore this exact outfit in “She’s All That,” right? So maybe we’ll call this kind of pretty-girl-trying-to-pose-as-dowdy thing “She’s All Thatting.” [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
