Katy Perry In Atelier Versace – 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA


Katy Perry and rapper Riff Raff made quite the splash on the red carpet at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards tonight (August 24) at The Forum in Los Angeles.

In what most people immediately recognized as a throwback to the now iconic matching denim ensembles that then-couple Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake wore to the 2001 American Music Awards, the pair rocked seriously blinged out Atelier Versace numbers.

There is going to be a lot of hate thrown at these looks, because let’s be honest: they are hideous, but a good sense of humor goes a really long way on the red carpet, and we all know Katy loves a good costume, so why not have a little fun?

And from the chin up, Katy looks divine. Glossy hair, red lips, winged eyeliner: It’s classic glamour at its best.

    I shouldn’t be laughing this hard at work.

    I like her look but not his. I think it’s cute she wanted to do a throwback look to Britney.

    She looked like she had the best time ever. I love her and the reference, not the look itself.

    I love how bad this is!
    Definitely two thumbs up from me.

    I remember Britney and Justin in this look. My best friend and I thought they looked both so pretty then *lol*. It was a different time, obviously, and we were all young and innocent 😉 What a great throwback! Well done.

    Katy is so pretty here. Outfit- no comment, LOL.

    Hahaha this just made my day! 😀 Katy is awesome! 😀

    I love that she done this she tweeted Britney to tell her she was going to do an impression at the VMAs. She is having fun with fashion and why not

    “Glossy hair” = glossy wig. 🙂

    Ha! As someone who remembers this look from the first time around, this made me burst out laughing.

    Loll if this is a throwback to Britney/JT then I applaud them for it! They’re having fun and not trying too hard which is a breath of fresh air for the VMA’s!
    Also, Katy looks beautiful from the neck up.

    I LOVE IT!

    It’s young, sexy and really funny! Amazing Britney throw-back

    Oh, God!

    I think the VMAs are appropriate for fun looks and I really laughed when I saw this. Can’t say I like the outfits, but it was fun to see a throwback to Justin and Britney’s memorable look 13 years ago.

    If this was a joke I didn’t get it… maybe if she had gone alone, without this rapper?

    • effieee August 25, 2014 at 08:29 #

      It’s meant to be a throwback to the iconic Britney and JT look from back in the day. Without Riff Raff, it’d just be Katy in a hideous denim Versace gown; Riff Raff is a necessary accessory.

    I love she did a Britney throw-back and it works for the VMA’s. Not may could pull this off but somehow Katy does.

    Times like this i wish we could post gifs in the comments on my reaction to this as i have no words.

    The worst dressed is Amber Rose. She was trying to copy Marylin Manson’s girlfriend, circa 1999. It failed!

    • Christine August 25, 2014 at 03:12 #

      Omg yes! I literally cried tears from the try hardness of that fail attempt. LOL. Too much

    • Meme August 25, 2014 at 12:44 #

      Absolutely. She looked ridiculous.

  19. julyol1972 August 25, 2014 at 03:05 #

    GAH! My eyes!!!!

  20. SilentVisitor August 25, 2014 at 03:04 #

    I see that they copied Britney and Justin from …………. can’t even remember
    What is happening to Versace????

  21. celine caldwell August 25, 2014 at 03:04 #

    This is hysterical. If you are going to do ‘anti-fashion’, go for it. they really did. love!

    • sophie August 25, 2014 at 03:17 #

      I agree. Katy clearly wanted a night off of fashion, and I think she did it right. I mean, it’s tacky alone and especially with Riff Raff (one of the tackiest and worst rappers ever) but it’s fun.

    • Ally August 25, 2014 at 03:24 #

      hahahaha! I loved it too! Not gorgeous, but hilarious!

  22. nico August 25, 2014 at 02:58 #


  23. Christine August 25, 2014 at 02:57 #

    What a cute throwback. BUT LOL. C’mon girl.
