Katy Perry In Zac Posen – 2013 MTV EMAs

Katy Perry In Zac Posen - 2013 MTV EMAs

Katy Perry took a fairly conservative approach for the 2013 MTV EMAs, which was held at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam this evening.

I was expecting something far more provocative, but that doesn’t mean I am disappointed by her efforts.

The singer wore a Zac Posen Resort 2014 aqua-blue satin frock flared back hem in the designers signature fitted silhouette which hugged her gorgeous figure.

Opting for a bejewelled Dolce & Gabbana headband, she simply styled the look with Charlotte Olympia open-toe nude platforms and red nails.

I love the retro-meets-modern glamour appeal.

Where you expecting more? Do you wish quirky Katy came out to play?

    Horrible shoes.

    Well, since I mostly dislike her looks when quirky Kate comes out to play, I don’t mind that she looks rather elegant here and that this is not very MTV Awards material.

      ITA with you. Also, her face and hairstyle looked absolutely FLAWLESS.

      I agree.

    I like it more after seeing the other looks at the event. She actually stands out more by being more conservative than usual. I find it refreshing to see a 50’s retro kind of look instead of the 90’s trash the others are wearing. That just wasnt the classiest decade and i dont really want it to come back.

    This reminds me of when Katy first hit the scene and her look was very pin-up girl. I think she looks lovely

    She looks fairly good. I’m not loving the headband or the shoes, or the hemline. But I do like the dress, the colour looks good on her. Also, I do kind of agree that she should have been a bit wilder for the event.

    I haven’t been able to take my eyes off of the model, who looks like Pat Cleveland. So I googled it — and indeed Pat Cleveland and her daughter are modeling for Zac Posen. Stunning! Pat Cleveland is what, 60+ years old?! Sorry Katy, you can’t touch that, lol….

      Yes, Anna Cleveland is a mainstay of Zac’s, and I was excited, too, to see Pat medel in this lookbook along with her. They both have such poise and grace.

    The dress is very elegant on Katy, she looks very grown up here. But this is an MTV event, she should play her ‘quirky’ side on this kind of event.

    She looks beautiful, I really really love the look. Having said that, she could have had a lot more fun given the event; this would’ve been more appropriate for a charity event or something more conservative.
    Compared to everyone else, she’s definitely the best dressed of the evening.

    Can’t say I like this. It looks very matronly, and it doesn’t make much sense at the EMAs. Katy is still the best dressed of the event, but that’s hardly saying anything at all because it was such a disappointing bunch.

    Katy didn’t get the memo to dress as cheap & trashy as possible? I can’t hate on her since everyone else at this event is SO bad. She looks pretty, but not really a fan of this dress or the shoes.

  11. kane November 10, 2013 at 22:08 #

    Not crazy about this… especially the styling is disappointing… but at least we are talking “disappointing” rather than “disastrous.”

  12. lisam November 10, 2013 at 21:53 #

    This would be a great street style look, but it is far too tame for an award show

  13. larissa November 10, 2013 at 21:52 #

    love it great colour, love the shoes, great outfit surprsingly subtle choice given the event

  14. H November 10, 2013 at 21:36 #

    Give me this over the Miley Cyrus hoebag look any day! Classy and elegant.

  15. Nee November 10, 2013 at 21:12 #

    The hem is completely throwing me off liking the look. Very sloppy.

  16. Ana November 10, 2013 at 20:34 #

    While I was watching her live on TV I was thinking: “Where is quirky Katy?”! That doesn’t I don’t like the look, I love it! I even like the hairband. She looks good!

  17. Christina November 10, 2013 at 20:17 #

    Like above, I am also confused at this choice. Although I think she has managed to look classy in the recent past, this time she is taking it a bit too far. I am also not impressed with the hem of the skirt: the folded nature of it makes it look like a last-minute adjustment.The headband is getting the thumbs down too. Shame, when she gets it right, she looks amazing.

  18. Noemi November 10, 2013 at 20:12 #

    I think she looks good and the headband is very beautiful.

    I am really surprised at this demure choice for something like an MTV music awards event. Very strange. I’m confused at this choice.

    I’m normally not a fan of headbands but it actually works wonderfully with the look here, a sweet touch. The look does feel a tad boring/conservative but she looks delightful nevertheless – the color is lovely, the dress shows off her curves beautifully, I like the touches of red via lippie and nail polish. She looks radiant, sweet and ladylike. Thumbs up from me.

  21. Christine November 10, 2013 at 19:24 #

    I was expecting more. Not liking this.

  22. pinksugar November 10, 2013 at 19:24 #

    While I do like this dress I think it is far too conservative and stuffy for the event. It’s a MTV event, have a little fun! Katy has an amazing figure but where she is busty the cut at the top makes her look a bit matronly. I also don’t care for the shoe choice. I will throw her a bone on the sparkling headband.
