In the immortal words of the late Amy Winehouse, what kind of fuckery is this? On Tuesday, we speculated that repeat style offender Katy Perry seemed to be getting her sartorial shit together but, um, do you think we might be able to backpedal a bit on that one? Granted, she’s just going to the airport in this heinous attire, but still. Her outfit looks like it was copped straight out of my wardrobe, age 12, circa Rebellious Stage, in an era where Ed Hardy was considered a good look. Oh, but that was probably never.

You guys know I generally find Katy Perry to dress like the Poor Man’s Gaga — so wacky! So out of control! So over the top! Oh look, there’s whipped cream shooting out of her tits! Oh geez, her entire look is inspired by an ice cream cone she dropped on the pavement when she was in fifth grade!
But this look — a modest (for Katy Perry) dress she wore on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” — I actually like. Sure, she’s still got an insurmountable situation going on with her hair, but the dress is tops.
And speaking of unlikely things, I actually kind of want to watch her new documentary/concert movie, if only to see the dismantling of her relationship with Russell Brand. I mean, they did make me sit through their awful wedding montage during the Grammys, after all.
Katy Perry was basically the star of this weekend’s Much Music Video Awards (the Canadian version of the MTV Awards, basically), walking the red carpet with her own posse of little look-a-likes. Each of the tykes dressed up as one of Katy’s many incarnations. Perry also had a few costume changes over the course of the night — check out her comic book hero-inspired red carpet look, the conservative outfit she wore to present, and the naked butterfly ensemble she performed in, after the jump!

Vintage flapper style has long been a fashion inspiration, especially with the promise of Baz Luhrman’s anachronistic, aesthetically thrilling “Gatsby” adaptation on our heels, but methinks Katy Perry may have taken the trend a bit too literally at last night’s City Of Hope gala. Her long, lacy silk slip is perfectly lovely, but the headpiece and haphazard pearls send the whole thing straight into Halloween costume territory. The silver mules are definitely retro, but not in a good way — they’re more bridge champion than pop star. Also, yin-yang nail art? Where is Katy trying to go with this? I’m confounded.

Katy Perry told Ellen DeGeneres that her tour documentary “Part Of Me” is going to include the dissolution of her marriage from husband-of-14-months Russell Brand ”in the most tasteful way.” Katy said she’s commited to “breaking down the idea that to achieve your dream you always have to be perfect or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world … we know we’re not perfect at all.” Half of me is thinking, Katy, girl, opening up the world to your breakup is not a good idea. But the other half of me appreciates Katy’s desire not to whitewash her life and sanitize it beyond PR-approved recognition. You know? [Guardian UK]
