Katy Perry In Sally LaPointe - The Friars Foundation Annual Applause Award Gala

Parading out a more sophisticated, less spirited exit, Katy Perry was spotted leaving The Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City last night, after attending The Friars Foundation Annual Applause Award Gala.

The American ‘Vogue’ July cover girl slipped into a buttery-peach Sally LaPointe Resort 2014 gown, worn with matching gemstone-embellished Etro sandals.

While the soft, silky shade should have been delicious, it didn’t quite translate as glowingly against Katy’s surprisingly barely-there makeup and jet-black ‘do.

I would have removed the chunky Etro choker necklace, as it was a distracting addition to the high neckline and side shoulder cutouts of the dress.

Of course, the bigger accessory story may be her date, as she was also seen arm-in-arm with ex, John Mayer.

Peachy-keen or no?
