Katy Perry In Elie Saab Couture – 2012 Grammy Awards

I had a feeling that Katy Perry would wear a blue dress to match her dyed hair at the 2012 Grammy Awards tonight, and it looks like I was right.

The singer glided down the red carpet wearing an Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture gown.

Her straight-off-the-runway light blue three-quarter-sleeved embellished floral appliqué gown features a scoop back and cinched-in waist accented with a simple ribbon.

This look would’ve been phenomenal had Katy sported her trademark raven locks.

Unfortunately, her mismatched hair with visible roots unbalances the regal elements of the look.

    Blue hair? Fail.

  2. serenissima7 February 14, 2012 at 17:44 #

    not feeling the blue hair AT ALL… and the dress looks different on her than the model. i can’t pinpoint what it is, exactly, but i don’t like it

    I love this look! The visible roots slightly bother me, like they did when she had her hair dyed pink, but I can ignore it and say that this is a very nice look from Katy Perry. The gown is beautiful and, well, it still matches her hair! 😛

    Katy looked gorgeous, but I hate that she couldn’t cover her roots!

    This was one of my favorite gowns of the collection but she has totally ruined it for me. The hair is atrocious, her breasts are sagging and she is bringing absolutely nothing to this gorgeous gown. The whole look is matronly. What a disappointment. This was an Oscar gown, meant for the likes of Cate Blanchett, not this mess.

  6. kiwi February 13, 2012 at 14:56 # best dressed.. only issue is sagging bust

  7. Mia February 13, 2012 at 14:54 #

    very bad choice. she looks like grandma katy perry. The dress does nothing for her figure as far making her look hot. Instead she looks wide and squared. I would be disappointed if i were the designer.

  8. Alina February 13, 2012 at 13:05 #

    Right now I’m really mad. She destoyed a perfect dress.

  9. Georgie February 13, 2012 at 11:53 #

    She looks like Glinda from the Wizard of Oz. And not in a good way…

  10. robbie February 13, 2012 at 09:48 #

    like it from the hairline down, hairline up TRAGIC!

  11. barefoot duchess February 13, 2012 at 09:06 #

    loved the back!

  12. Jess2 February 13, 2012 at 08:42 #

    This was one of my favourite pieces from the couture collection. Katy does look beautiful and I absolutely love the botoom photo that shows the back but I am not sure this was the best dress choice for her. A darker colour hair (something more similar to Arizona Muse’s colour) would have looked much better. I also think she needed more support around the bust. In two minds about this look

  13. Emi February 13, 2012 at 08:41 #

    A fairy tale gown, really. I also like the hairdo, but the dark roots are so ugly to see…

  14. Jan February 13, 2012 at 05:24 #

    I agree that this would’ve looked a lot better with her normal hair. But other than that she looks absolutely beautiful!

  15. Leela February 13, 2012 at 05:03 #

    ah nice but a waste of a dress!

  16. Jennesia February 13, 2012 at 04:28 #

    Besides the terrible hair there is also the issue of lack of support in the Breast Region.

  17. Shelby February 13, 2012 at 04:19 #

    I agree that the mismatched hair is a bit off-putting, but as a woman who dyes her hair, I’m glad to see someone in the public eyes saying “Ef what people think, if they don’t like my hair, so what!?”

    Though from the front she looks a little dumpy in this dress.

  18. Rebecca Z February 13, 2012 at 04:13 #

    Dreadful–get over the hair–either do the costume thing or do the grown up thing–trying to put them together doesn’t work.

    • katie February 13, 2012 at 04:45 #

      +1 EXACTLY

    • Marybeth February 13, 2012 at 06:03 #

      +2 Amen to that!

  19. Carrie February 13, 2012 at 04:12 #

    I really liked this look.

  20. moja31 February 13, 2012 at 03:55 #

    i will never not hate the blue hair, and the gown is doing nothing for her boobs. it could have been gorgeous, but it’s falling flat.

  21. Ade February 13, 2012 at 03:29 #

    I like the dress, just not on her.

  22. Shaina February 13, 2012 at 03:15 #

    This looked a lot better on video. I still love this look though, I like the blue dress matching with her hair. Great look for Katy!

  23. mandy February 13, 2012 at 03:13 #

    This dress ages her dramatically.

  24. jas February 13, 2012 at 03:07 #

    BORING. carrie underwood, adele and katy perry all look like they’re wearing the same dress but in different colours. and adele wins by far

  25. bee7 February 13, 2012 at 03:02 #

    i dont mind blue hair but the dark roots really baffle me. the dress is beautiful but i would prefer to see it on someone with small chest just like the runaway model arizona muse

    • bec February 13, 2012 at 08:31 #

      I was just thinking the same…she’s too booby for this dress. She looks gorgeous in the photo taken from the back, but in the front on photo the dress does nothing for her.

      • Fiona February 14, 2012 at 07:52 #

        Ditto, my thoughts exactly

  26. Dhppy February 13, 2012 at 03:01 #

    A little disappointing and I love Elie Saab. Perhaps, if she had more support, the dress as a whole would get a lift.

  27. Fromchi-town February 13, 2012 at 02:55 #

    I dont like this at all. It looked a little matronly, with the sleeves. And the hair just about killed it.

  28. mm February 13, 2012 at 02:51 #

    This seemed suited for a brides maid. Gorgeous gown but wrong event. Where was fun Katy

  29. EmmaWoodhouse February 13, 2012 at 02:48 #

    Oh, SO close! This is a gorgeous dress, but Katy needed too things: more support in the bust area and NORMAL HAIR! I’m so disappointed because with these tweaks she could have been amazing.

    • Jones19 February 13, 2012 at 13:07 #

      Ditto. The lack of bust support and blue hair ruin this gorgeous gown.

  30. Bec February 13, 2012 at 02:39 #

    Blue hair with such a gorgeous gown makes me die a little on the inside..

  31. Dani February 13, 2012 at 02:34 #

    Katy looked phenomenal! She is definitely the best dressed! Elie saab is a genius!

  32. Mahima February 13, 2012 at 02:32 #

    I agree, the look would be ten times better with her dark hair.

  33. TeaAtTwo February 13, 2012 at 02:31 #

    Although I’d prefer her to have black hair, the blue hair gives it a bit of youthfulness, even if it isn’t as elegant. The dress is beautiful.

  34. Jason February 13, 2012 at 02:29 #

    She looks matronly, her chest is sagging with no support, the dress is giving her no shape, the hair is make up is AWFUL, this is not Elie Saab but a cheap Melrose knock off. Disappointing but not shocking coming from Katy.

    • Linda February 13, 2012 at 03:26 #

      I have to agree with you there on every point, Jason. I didn’t like the recent Elie Saab collection as much as some others of his because the dresses are feeling very similar and too heavily beaded.

  35. Ariel February 13, 2012 at 02:28 #

    Stunning! Love Elie Saab! Bring on Priyanka Copra! 2of my favorites!

    • Fashion Critic February 13, 2012 at 02:44 #

      This person is not featured on Getty so I will not be able to feature her on my site.

      • Ariel February 13, 2012 at 02:53 #

        Do you know a site that covered her?
