Katy Perry For Vogue US July 2013

Katy Perry for Vogue US July 2013

Katy Perry looks beautiful gracing her first ever cover for American Vogue – shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz – wearing a Rodarte Fall 2013 floral dress.

The 28-year-old singer can be seen in a slew of beautiful looks, including a remarkable red lace Valentino Haute Couture gown (you may remember Adele wore the short version to the Grammys), a floral Dolce & Gabbana gown, a red satin Zac Posen strapless gown, a black-and-red Prada look, plus a Michael Kors floral bustier and ball skirt.

Throughout her shoot, the one thing that remains constant is her Revlon red lip colour, a trend we’ve seen on the red carpet.

In her interview Katy talks about making music, Russell Brand and John Mayer.

On making music: “When I am in between records, sometimes I doubt myself. I’ll be like: Did I just get lucky, or did I mass-manipulate the world into thinking that seven songs were worth a number-one position? And then I go back into the studio and I start writing, and the true essential oil of who I am comes bubbling back up and reminds me that it’s always been inside of me, that nobody can take this away no matter what comment anyone makes. It’s going to be there because it’s what I was born with and it’s what I’ve worked on my whole life.”

On Russell Brand: “He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011. At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness. He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting.”
On what caused their breakup: “I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day. I let go and I was like: This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that.”

On her on-again, off-again relationship with John Mayer: “I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him. [...] Beautiful mind, tortured soul.”

On The ‘Kroll Show’ Set With Katy Perry In Hervé Léger By Max Azria

On The 'Kroll Show' Set With Katy Perry In Hervé Léger By Max Azria

Katy Perry brought her inner ‘prints-cess’ to the set of the sketch comedy series, the ‘Kroll Show,’ in Hollywood, California on Tuesday.

The singer kept most of her quirk factor under wraps on this occasion, wearing a Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2013 two-piece, body-con ensemble in a monochromatic, ocelot-like pattern.

Just showing a trendy sliver of midriff, she did flash a bit more skin by unzipping the long-sleeve top and skipping the matching leggings worn under the high-waisted pencil skirt on the runway.

With her black-ankle wrap sandals and glamorous sunglasses, it was a chic entrance for Katy, although it did give me a slight case of déjà vu. You may remember she flaunted a similar, but far more skin-baring, Hervé Léger by Max Azria silhouette to the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards earlier this year.

Katy Perry performed ‘Beast of Burden’ on stage with Mick Jagger, who was wearing custom J Brand jeans, during The Rolling Stones’ ’50 and Counting’ tour in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday evening.

Channelling her inner rock chick, the singer belted out the song wearing a vintage black leather bustier with a Mary Katrantzou ‘Matchu Khan’ stamp-print leather skirt from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection.

Even though the skirt makes a huge fashion statement, Katy also opted to wear Giuseppe Zanotti thigh-high leather boots and a spiked necklace.

Katy Perry In Dolce & Gabbana – 2013 Met Gala

Katy Perry In Dolce & Gabbana - 2013 Met Gala

Quirky Katy Perry came back out to play at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday night in New York City.

And what a perfect event for her to give us some drama – Katy style.

She donned one of the opulent embellished pieces from the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 collection.

The ‘Joan of Arc’ gown which she styled with a crown, crucifix earrings and a dark pout, was kinda let down with unimaginative pumps.

There were far better choices from the Dolce & Gabbana runway that she could’ve selected.

Were you let down by the heels, or are you too busy taking in the rest of her look to worry about her footwear?

Katy Perry In Thom Browne – ‘Killer Queen’ Fragrance Launch

Katy Perry In Thom Browne - ‘Killer Queen’ Fragrance Launch

Katy Perry unveiled her third fragrance, ‘Killer Queen’, at the James B. Duke Mansion in New York City yesterday.

As this was a promotional event, those of you who are too fond of her quirky nature can forgive the theatrics on this occasion.

Taking to her throne, the singer wore a Thom Browne Fall 2013 red-and-white rose-print, strapless dress with embroidered rose-detailing and a voluminous skirt.

There isn’t one thing I like about this look I have to say. Not a damn thing.

I find this dress garish as it has too much going on. It looks like it belongs on in a horror movie; dressing a victim who has met her untimely demise.

Katy styled her look with Alice + Olivia heels, Lorraine Schwartz bracelets and Chopard earrings.

Wavy locks, a red pout and blood-red and gold manicure provided the finishing touches to Katy’s look.

Katy Perry In Bottega Veneta – ‘Kinky Boots’ Broadway Play

Katy Perry In Bottega Veneta - ‘Kinky Boots’ Broadway Play

Before taking to the red carpet for the 2013 Delete Blood Cancer Gala in New York City last night, Katy Perry was spotted on Broadway headed to see the ‘Kinky Boots’ play.

Perhaps inspired by the show’s title, the singer wore a pair of Bionda Castana ‘Maya’ booties in a rich Bordeaux hue with gold studded details with her Bottega Veneta Spring 2013 dress.

Her black-and-sand floral-print semi-sheer silk dress features lightly padded shoulders, ruched sleeves and black crepe panels with studded snake trims at the back.

With so much going on colour-, print- and texture-wise, she added a two-tone resin Etro cuff and a black Celine shoulder bag.

Did Katy overcook this look? Should she have let this feminine 40s dress stand on its own?
