Katy Perry In Alexander McQueen – 2013 MusiCares Person Of The Year Gala Honoring Bruce Springsteen

Katy Perry In Alexander McQueen - MusiCares Grammys

Katy Perry is on fine form at the moment. Who’ve thought that John Mayer would be such a calming influence on her?

Continuing to impress on the red carpet, which landed her the Most Improved 2012 title, the singer was at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California yesterday evening, for the 2013 MusiCares Person Of The Year Gala honoring Bruce Springsteen.

Katy was radiant wearing an Alexander McQueen Resort 2013 orange halter gown with a multi-coloured bejewelled neckline.

You may remember that Emily Blunt wore this dress last year, with equally impressive results.

Katy didn’t opt for many detracting accessories; just stud earrings which don’t dazzle as brightly as her amazing gown.

Flawless makeup and side swept raven tresses completed her look.

I wonder if quirky Katy will come out to play at the Grammys tomorrow?

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better…Huo Si Yan or Katy Perry?

WWIB Dolce & Gabbana

Huo Si Yan was the first to wear this gorgeous floral Dolce & Gabbana gown to the 2nd Beijing Film Festival held in China back in April.

Her gown was accented with a velvet bejewelled waistband to add a touch of pizzazz to the look so she didn’t go overboard with the accessories, keeping the styling of her hair and makeup minimal.

A gimmick-free Katy Perry wore the same gown back in November to the Dream Foundation’s 11th annual Celebration of Dreams.

I love the overall glamorous feel to her look, with her raven hair loose around her shoulders and those stunning emerald earrings which complement the colourful gown exquisitely.

Based on those earrings alone, Katy wins for me.

Katy Perry In Rodarte – Ceremonial Inauguration For U.S. President Barack Obama

Katy Perry In Rodarte - Ceremonial Inauguration For US President Barack Obama

Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z weren’t the only celebs attending the 57th Presidential Inaugural Address today in Washington, D.C.

Katy Perry and John Mayer were spotted in the crowd too.

The singer wore a Rodarte Fall 2012 orange-and-black woven coat with a shearling collar, which she wore with a rust-and-black sequined tulle collared dress from the same collection.

Many of you have said that you believed that Beyonce was overdressed to sing the national anthem, so I would be interested to hear your thoughts on Katy’s bedazzled dress for this daytime event where she wasn’t performing.

The coat is event appropriate, but I can’t help but feel like this gorgeous dress is wasted under her coat.

Hopefully we will see her captured at another event during the day sans coat.

Katy styled her look with a black felt hat, Jimmy Choo ‘Titan’ boots and a Christian Louboutin ‘Farida’ bag, which has also been favoured by January Jones, Miranda Kerr and Rachel Weisz.

Katy Perry In Valentino – 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Katy Perry In Valentino - 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Katy Perry didn’t take to the red carpet at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards but she was in attendance to collect her four awards, including ‘Favourite Female Artist’, ‘Favourite Pop Artist’, ‘Favourite Music Video’ for ‘Part of Me’, and ‘Favourite Music Fan Following’ for KatyCats.

Our most improved star of 2012 kick-started the new year in the way she ended the last, looking effortless and sophisticated.

Dressed in a Valentino Fall 2012 number, her long-sleeve black dress with fitted bodice and flared skirt featured floral and gold embroidered details.

Black suede Jimmy Choo ‘Eros’ pumps, gold Sylva & Cie drop earrings and her braided updo, adorned with a gold Jennifer Behr headpiece, completed her look.

If there was ever an event for Quirky Katy to come out to play it was the People’s Choice Awards, but she opted for something mature and sophisticated.

Are you happy or disappointed about that?

Most Improved 2012 – Katy Perry

Towards the latter part of the year, Katy Perry had somewhat of a style transformation.

Gone were the blue, purple and green wigs plus the quirky red carpet attire for a sleeker, sophisticated, more consistent red carpet look.

In the past she would go from wearing an princessy Elie Saab Couture gown to a slime-inspired frock in the space of a few appearances, but at it feels like the singer has shelved those attention seeking, eccentric red carpet looks for now.

I am very interested to see if this phase continues in 2013.

Katy Perry In YSL – A Celebration Of Carole King And Her Music

It’s been a while since we saw quirky Katy Perry on the red carpet; lately it has been glamour all the way.

She attended a celebration of Carole King and her music to benefit Paul Newman’s The Painted Turtle Camp at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

The singer wore a very familiar YSL Edition Soir gown.

Familiar not so much in colour, but in style. Just this year alone, both Kylie Minogue and Emmy Rossum have worn this gown.

The main difference between them and Katy is that Katy’s gown has embellished details on the bodice which she has offset with a decorative Amrapali necklace, which probably wasn’t needed but does enhance the overall look.

Wavy raven tresses and gold ankle-strap Giuseppe Zanotti pumps completed her look.

Do you love the new Katy Perry, or are you longing for the quirky Katy to return?

Katy Perry In Marchesa – ‘Trevor Live’ Event

Katy Perry had quite a weekend.

Following her honour of being named at Billboard’s ‘Women of the Year’, she was also honoured at The Trevor Project’s 2012 ‘Trevor Live’ event, held at the Hollywood Palladium in California on Sunday evening.

The singer wore a Marchesa Resort 2013 gown.

Her delicate floor-length lace gown, featuring all-over beading, embroidery and full-length illusion sleeves, was styled with a Lena Erziak ‘Adam’ salmon apple-shaped bag with a golden leaf and matching gold chain plus a gold pendant necklace.

Katy tried to channel an earthy boho vibe by adding a braided accent to her luscious raven locks.

This gown is a considerable improvement on her last look, yet I’m not screaming for this to be up for BDOTW.

Katy Perry In Oscar de la Renta – 2012 Billboard Women in Music Luncheon

Billboard ‘Woman of the Year’ honoree Katy Perry attended the annual event held at Capitale in New York City on Friday afternoon.

The singer went all-American with a ruffled persimmon Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 dress.

Despite an ‘A’ for effort, Katy couldn’t create fireworks with this over-accessorized attempt at uptown elegance, made all the more matronly with her stiff-looking news anchor coiffe.

Had Katy loosened the bun, lost the belt, and swapped the bedazzled Oscar de la Renta peep-toe pumps for a pair of sexy strappy sandals, she could’ve easily transformed this look from dowdy to dreamy.

Katy Perry In Naeem Khan – UNICEF Snowflake Ball

Katy Perry looked stunning on the red carpet at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City yesterday evening.

Naeem Khan is one of my favourite designers and this breath-taking gown is a classic example of why that is the case.

Katy oozed glamour with a touch of drama, wearing a navy column gown enriched with floral beaded details. I think many would’ve opted to wear this look sans cape, but the cape is what makes this look so special.

Her look is further enhanced with Lorraine Schwartz 45-carat blue sapphire and diamond earrings and tattoo cuff with black sapphires and white and black diamonds.

Sleek straight hair worn behind her ears in a centre parting and a light-blue clutch completed her BDOTW-worthy look.
