Katy Perry For Vogue Italia July 2012

Even though she’s a natural blonde, normally we associate Katy Perry with long dark tresses.

For her Vogue Italia July 2012 editorial she’s barely recognizable wearing a platinum wig with pale skin and heavy black eye makeup.

In two pics she donned the Linda Farrow for Prabal Gurung sunglasses we’ve seen on Lady Gaga, which adds to the futuristic feel of the photo shoot.

My favourite shot is of her wearing the McQ Alexander McQueen dress with the visor from the mainline collection.

Other looks include her looking chic in Jil Sander, on all fours in Dsquared2 , donning head-to-toe pink in Comme des Garçons, sweet in Valentino, daring in sheer Dolce & Gabbana and sexy in Donna Karan; all styled by Francesco Carrozzini.

She talked to Vogue Italia about her docu-movie, her eclectic tastes and her style.

Here are some extracts from her interview. Read more over at Vogue.it.

On showing her behind-the-scenes self in ‘Katy Perry: Part of Me’: “I am not afraid to show the real me, the de-glamorized version, because I am not always the Katy Perry who is a bit cartoon-like that everyone relates to. That’s me on stage. But I like to show the entire spectrum of my personality. There are so many different Katy Perrys enclosed within one body, unfortunately.”

On her tastes being ‘eclectic’: “I like small boutiques, handmade garments, ornamental details. It all depends on how I am when I wake up. But, by and large, I like anything that is fun. One of my favorite American designers is Jeremy Scott: I adore him because he doesn’t play along, and I do the same.”

On where she gets her look: “I say this even if I may sound egocentric: they are my ideas. But, obviously, I am helped by a stylist, my friend Wujek.”

    Kudos to her for being honest.

    I love this editorial! so transformational. She looks great in this spread. I am beginning to warm up to her style. She is so fun to watch :)

      I completely agree. I always look forward to seeing Katy’s fashions because she seems to be having such a good time. She rarely fails to make me smile.

    Katy Perry, Comme des Garcons, Jil Sander, Alexander McQueen and Donna Karan, all in Vogue Italia? Francesco Carrozzini must have read my mind! This editorial is awesome!

    I normally am not a hgue an of Katy PErry, especially her editorials because they always feel samey, but I love this one. It isn’t too overtly gimmicky, and the cean lines work really well

    it could be anyone…

      Exactly.
      I get the idea of trying something different, and I even like the futurist vibe of the shooting, but honestly…why have an editorial with a celeb if you make her TOTALLY unrecognizible and cover her up with wigs, makeup and visors?

    These looks / editorial remind me of the look Christina Aguilera was aiming for during her Keeps Getting Better era, only chic.
