February 13, 2012 Runway To Red Carpet

Katy Perry In Elie Saab Couture – 2012 Grammy Awards

I had a feeling that Katy Perry would wear a blue dress to match her dyed hair at the 2012 Grammy Awards tonight, and it looks like I was right.

The singer glided down the red carpet wearing an Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture gown.

Her straight-off-the-runway light blue three-quarter-sleeved embellished floral appliqué gown features a scoop back and cinched-in waist accented with a simple ribbon.

This look would’ve been phenomenal had Katy sported her trademark raven locks.

Unfortunately, her mismatched hair with visible roots unbalances the regal elements of the look.

    BORING. carrie underwood, adele and katy perry all look like they’re wearing the same dress but in different colours. and adele wins by far

  2. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    This dress ages her dramatically.

  3. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    This looked a lot better on video. I still love this look though, I like the blue dress matching with her hair. Great look for Katy!

  4. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    I like the dress, just not on her.

  5. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    i will never not hate the blue hair, and the gown is doing nothing for her boobs. it could have been gorgeous, but it’s falling flat.

  6. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    I really liked this look.

  7. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    Dreadful–get over the hair–either do the costume thing or do the grown up thing–trying to put them together doesn’t work.

  8. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    This person is not featured on Getty so I will not be able to feature her on my site.

  9. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    Do you know a site that covered her?

  10. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    Stunning! Love Elie Saab! Bring on Priyanka Copra! 2of my favorites!

  11. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    I have to agree with you there on every point, Jason. I didn’t like the recent Elie Saab collection as much as some others of his because the dresses are feeling very similar and too heavily beaded.

  12. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    She looks matronly, her chest is sagging with no support, the dress is giving her no shape, the hair is make up is AWFUL, this is not Elie Saab but a cheap Melrose knock off. Disappointing but not shocking coming from Katy.

  13. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    Although I’d prefer her to have black hair, the blue hair gives it a bit of youthfulness, even if it isn’t as elegant. The dress is beautiful.

  14. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    I agree, the look would be ten times better with her dark hair.

  15. Guest April 14, 2019 at 3:22 am #

    Katy looked phenomenal! She is definitely the best dressed! Elie saab is a genius!

  16. Luciana February 15, 2012 at 12:39 pm #

    Blue hair? Fail.

  17. serenissima7 February 14, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    not feeling the blue hair AT ALL… and the dress looks different on her than the model. i can’t pinpoint what it is, exactly, but i don’t like it

  18. Parvati February 13, 2012 at 9:00 pm #

    I love this look! The visible roots slightly bother me, like they did when she had her hair dyed pink, but I can ignore it and say that this is a very nice look from Katy Perry. The gown is beautiful and, well, it still matches her hair! 😛

  19. Heather February 13, 2012 at 5:14 pm #

    Katy looked gorgeous, but I hate that she couldn’t cover her roots!

  20. Colleen February 13, 2012 at 3:14 pm #

    This was one of my favorite gowns of the collection but she has totally ruined it for me. The hair is atrocious, her breasts are sagging and she is bringing absolutely nothing to this gorgeous gown. The whole look is matronly. What a disappointment. This was an Oscar gown, meant for the likes of Cate Blanchett, not this mess.

  21. kiwi February 13, 2012 at 2:56 pm #

    beautiful..my best dressed.. only issue is sagging bust

  22. Mia February 13, 2012 at 2:54 pm #

    very bad choice. she looks like grandma katy perry. The dress does nothing for her figure as far making her look hot. Instead she looks wide and squared. I would be disappointed if i were the designer.

  23. Alina February 13, 2012 at 1:05 pm #

    Right now I’m really mad. She destoyed a perfect dress.

  24. Georgie February 13, 2012 at 11:53 am #

    She looks like Glinda from the Wizard of Oz. And not in a good way…

  25. robbie February 13, 2012 at 9:48 am #

    like it from the hairline down, hairline up TRAGIC!

  26. barefoot duchess February 13, 2012 at 9:06 am #

    loved the back!

  27. Jess2 February 13, 2012 at 8:42 am #

    This was one of my favourite pieces from the couture collection. Katy does look beautiful and I absolutely love the botoom photo that shows the back but I am not sure this was the best dress choice for her. A darker colour hair (something more similar to Arizona Muse’s colour) would have looked much better. I also think she needed more support around the bust. In two minds about this look

  28. Emi February 13, 2012 at 8:41 am #

    A fairy tale gown, really. I also like the hairdo, but the dark roots are so ugly to see…

  29. Jan February 13, 2012 at 5:24 am #

    I agree that this would’ve looked a lot better with her normal hair. But other than that she looks absolutely beautiful!

  30. Leela February 13, 2012 at 5:03 am #

    ah nice but a waste of a dress!

  31. Jennesia February 13, 2012 at 4:28 am #

    Besides the terrible hair there is also the issue of lack of support in the Breast Region.

  32. Shelby February 13, 2012 at 4:19 am #

    I agree that the mismatched hair is a bit off-putting, but as a woman who dyes her hair, I’m glad to see someone in the public eyes saying “Ef what people think, if they don’t like my hair, so what!?”

    Though from the front she looks a little dumpy in this dress.

      +1 EXACTLY

      +2 Amen to that!

  34. Carrie February 13, 2012 at 4:12 am #

    I really liked this look.

  40. bee7 February 13, 2012 at 3:02 am #

    i dont mind blue hair but the dark roots really baffle me. the dress is beautiful but i would prefer to see it on someone with small chest just like the runaway model arizona muse

    • bec February 13, 2012 at 8:31 am #

      I was just thinking the same…she’s too booby for this dress. She looks gorgeous in the photo taken from the back, but in the front on photo the dress does nothing for her.

      • Fiona February 14, 2012 at 7:52 am #

        Ditto, my thoughts exactly

  41. Dhppy February 13, 2012 at 3:01 am #

    A little disappointing and I love Elie Saab. Perhaps, if she had more support, the dress as a whole would get a lift.

  42. Fromchi-town February 13, 2012 at 2:55 am #

    I dont like this at all. It looked a little matronly, with the sleeves. And the hair just about killed it.

  43. mm February 13, 2012 at 2:51 am #

    This seemed suited for a brides maid. Gorgeous gown but wrong event. Where was fun Katy

  44. EmmaWoodhouse February 13, 2012 at 2:48 am #

    Oh, SO close! This is a gorgeous dress, but Katy needed too things: more support in the bust area and NORMAL HAIR! I’m so disappointed because with these tweaks she could have been amazing.

    • Jones19 February 13, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

      Ditto. The lack of bust support and blue hair ruin this gorgeous gown.

  45. Bec February 13, 2012 at 2:39 am #

    Blue hair with such a gorgeous gown makes me die a little on the inside..

  46. Dani February 13, 2012 at 2:34 am #

    Katy looked phenomenal! She is definitely the best dressed! Elie saab is a genius!

  47. Mahima February 13, 2012 at 2:32 am #
