If there’s one place for a celebrity lady to step up her game, it’s on the red carpet. Whenever it’s rolled out, famous faces come out of the woodwork (do they exist when they’re not making public appearances? Important life questions) to show off what they’ve got. Classic, bizarre, avant garde — as we’ve seen, it’s all fair in
love dresses and war. But sometimes, even those who make a million a movie step out of line (and that is a fine line indeed!) and come off looking, well, cheap.
This weekend, America’s most renowned artists … okay, who am I kidding? This weekend, a few of America’s most palatable pop stars, like Selena Gomez and Katy Perry, flew ‘cross the pond to meet up with their Euro brethren at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Lady Gaga shoved her crotch at the crowd, Adam Lambert stood in for my beloved Freddie Mercury during Queen’s performance (I am deeply unhappy about this), and a whole mess of people dressed like fools. There were some sartorial standouts too — click through this slideshow to see the good, the bad, and the WTF on the MTV EMAs red carpet!
Damn you, Katy Perry! You’re dressed like a candy cane and standing between two ladies who look like lifesize anime characters and still your cover of Adele’s heartbreaking “Someone Like You” brought tears to my eyes. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Katy Perry said goodbye to her cotton candy pink locks in this ad for GHD hair styling products. Instead, she channeled her inner Snow White, holding a poisoned apple. Personally, I love this look and think it’s far superior to either Kristen Stewart or Lily Collins as the fairy tale heroine. I also love the fact that Katy’s version of the tale takes place in art deco era New York City. [Huffington Post]
Now, I adore Crayola colored hair. I have turquoise streaks myself and highly approved of Katy Perry‘s royal blue wig phase. But something about her current cotton candy-colored locks just aren’t working for me. The tone is so aging and it pulls the focus away from her gorgeous eyes and face. Case in point: the October cover of In Style, which makes the situation far worse with its assorted pink text. Ick! [Styleite] Keep reading »
The MTV Video Music Awards are kind of hilarious, considering the complete lack of videos played on MTV these days. But at least we can count on one thing from them: insane fashion. Everyone has carte blanche to come dressed up as a pile of trash, or a geisha robot or whatever–and this year, that’s exactly what happened. After the jump, check out how Beyonce, Katy Perry and all the rest fared.
Katy Perry is hopping on the mermaid train? Err, tail? Just a few weeks after Lady Gaga unveiled her alter ego Yuki, the mermaid in a wheelchair, and was accused of ripping Bette Midler’s mermaid routine from 1980, Katy Perry is breaching the water and showing off her mermaid costuming for a new video. So, will Gaga accuse Katy of stealing the idea? Not directly. But Gaga’s creative director, Laurieann Gibson, did tweet, “Proud of my artist #1 in the world @Ladygaga her vision& passion even though they try to steal a tail there’s only 1 Mermaid, Swim On!!!”
So what do we think—is there enough room for two mermaids in the pop music sea? And another pic of Katy’s costume after the jump. Keep reading »
And the crazy winner this week is: Rihanna, who wore this almost-not-there-at-all getup to the Crop Over festival in her native Barbados. Following behind her, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry’s pink hair transition, Mischa Barton’s Sgt. Pepper ensemble, and Kate Bosworth’s nerdy white-on-white look. Check back next week for more strange fashions! Keep reading »
Women always be changing their hair. It’s a maxim you can set your watch to. And celebrity ladies are no different. In fact, whether it’s for a role, because of a breakup, or simply because their agent told them putting blue streaks in their locks might garner them an extra bit of press (looking at you, Lauren Conrad), famous ladies are just as guilty as the rest of us of making impetuous hair moves. After the jump, we review some of the big hair changers so far this year — women who have gone from long to short, from short to long, from blonde to red and right back again. And don’t forget to tell us whose hair you covet and who you think should probably be sporting a paper bag over their head these days.
Just in case you weren’t sure what movie Katy Perry was promoting, she’s helpfully wearing it all over her ample bosoms. Keep reading »
