A gimmick-free Katy Perry took to the red carpet at the 2012 MTV Music Video Awards in California on Thursday evening.
Usually the singer aims to shock us in an over-the-top elaborate look for these events, but like Miley Cyrus, Katy opted for gothic-glamour.
Katy glided down the red carpet wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2004 gown from the designer’s archives.
Her stunning black gown with teal-and-fuchsia sequin floral embroidery also has a black leather bodice with a bow accent.
Keeping her makeup surprisingly simple, Katy completed her look with lovely dark raven wavy locks.
This look is definitely in her hall of red-carpet fame.
