Katy Perry In Oscar de la Renta – 2013 American Music Awards


Katy Perry swept onto the red carpet at the 2013 American Music Awards, hosted on Sunday night at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

For her arrival ensemble, the ‘Unconditionally’ songstress, who is also performing at the show, selected a dotted Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 sheer tulle gown, speckled with an array of colourful, embroidered flowers.

Toning down the runway styling by skipping the statement earrings and veil, she instead injected her own dose of attitude. Accessorizing with a whimsical Olympia Le-Tan ‘Webster’s New World Dictionary’ box clutch and an oversized flower ring, she also fully committed to the polka dots with a matching manicure.

Her style continues to evolve, and here she was a vision of sweet elegance with a proper touch of her beloved signature quirk.

Soft waves and a bold, matte-red lip rounded out the look that danced the line between grown-up glam and girly fun.

    As over-the-top the runway presentation is, I much prefer it over Katy’s styling. On her the dress just looks cheesy. It’s too Little House on the Prairie with her voluminous hair.

  • leni

    It’s a definitly a flattering look but I’m not a big fan of the makeup. It’s just a tad to white.

  • Ash


  • Why has nobody mentioned that her foundation is way too pale on her for this? Look at the pics on Just Jared, her face is paler than the rest of her. Like the dress but the look is boring on someone who is known to be more fun.

    • Elle

      It seems the case for all her photos apparently. She has struggled with acne and is insecure with her problematic skin. I have bad acne too and I feel the same. It’s too bad she can’t find a balance in her skin because it always looks so caked on. She’s not a natural brunette either which makes her look way too pale too have such dark hair. She’s a natural blonde. If she rocked her natural blonde locks, the foundation mis-match wouldn’t be so obvious.

  • kane

    This feels like a very typical Katy Perry look, played very very safe, but unlike others at the event it at least works for her.

  • Alina

    YEY! Classy Katy! Love this!

    • Rosanna


  • Eve_V

    I absolutely adore this look, best dressed of the night for me, but maybe I am still under the influence of her latest video.
    I do think this dress is the perfect balance between her quirkiness and more mature approach to clothes. The clutch is the perfect touch to offset the black of the dress.

  • Fiona

    I love this on her – I like that she has worn her hair out and glamorously styled, the gown is feminine and retro and girly but not too saccharine – my favourite look of hers for a long time.

  • Angela

    I don’t like this at all. It’s very aging on her, IMO. The floral details look like a couch, the hair is mumsy, and her makeup is ghostly. I wish she was more quirky. I do like her clutch, however.

  • KatieKate

    Love this! She’s adorable, and really seems to be coming into her own, style-wise. I believe tthe ring is Dior haute joillarie.

  • AW

    I prefer Katy from the 2013 Grammys, sleek, sexy and sophisticated.

    Tonight’s look is a bit much for me.

  • Anj

    This is a pretty outfit but her neck looks bare. I wish she wore a necklace.

  • Kat

    ^Oops. Totally agree by the way.

  • Love this! Everything is perfect! Was I the only one who thought Snow-white when they saw this?

    • Kat

      I adore this. Sophisticated, yet quirky. I want everything!

  • Christine

    Although this is a bit OTT for this music award show, I love this look. It’s fun, quirky and classy all in one.

    The clutch is everything.

    • Malinda Wallace

      I agree! She looks really lovely

    • Yeliz

      I agree as well.

    • Saree

      My thoughts exactly.

      My only nit pick was that I wish she didn’t give off the impression the clutch ways a tonne. It’s making it look like the dress is wearing her since she isn’t standing straight.
