Katy Perry In Rafael Cennamo – Pre-Grammy Gala Honoring L.A. Reid

Katy Perry RC

Katy Perry made a sparkling impression at the 2013 Annual Grammy Awards-Pre-Grammy Gala and Salute To Industry Icons honoring L.A. Reid yesterday in California last night.

This year’s Best Pop Solo Performance Grammy-nominated singer’s red-carpet portfolio has definitely experienced a very welcomed upgrade.

While the singer has come to dial down some of her quirkiness in favour of striking glamour, Perry’s cream long sleeve body-hugging Rafael Cennamo Fall 2013 ornate gown, with all-over peal embellishment and train, lacked some much needed oomph for this pop princess.

Perhaps a bolder hue would have kicked this look up a notch.

Hopefully the singer will find a more successful look for this evening’s award show that will meld a touch of her original style and her new found elegance.

    Gorgeous gown but it’s a tad aging, I would have loved this on Helen Mirren.

      Agreed. Pearl earrings? No.

    Part of me really likes this (I love pearls), but the other part of me thinks this is too bridal. I love her hair & makeup.

      totaly agree. Beautywise she is perfection. Love her new approach.

      Agree. I love pearls too but this overload screams “Here Comes the Bride!”

        I like this on one hand but then this is sorta aging on her. I do miss the fun quirky Katy.

    Way too mature and not that exciting for her.

    perfect! but i wonder surely a dress with so much beading cant exactly be comfortable when sitting down.

    It is indeed a bit aging, but she looks gorgeous nonetheless IMO.

    Ready for a night of Grammy coverage tonight? I can’t wait…

    How beautiful! The pop of color I’m getting is from her fresh faced makeup and luxurious raven hair. I LOVE Classy Katy’s style. Hoping she keeps it together for the big event tonight.

      I agree!!

    It’s just so boring. What a snooze for Katy.

    I don’t think her previous style was “quirky” – I think it was a gimmick that’s played out. She has a beautiful voice and doesn’t need to have sparklers coming out of her breasts to be noticed. I’m thrilled with her make-under! She looks gorgeous here.

    Some colour is definitely needed! Not really loving the dress itself.

    I don’t think this gown is aging at all. I love the color on her. It makes her skin looks even more creamer than what it is. She looks gorgeous to me.
