Katy Perry For Elle US September 2012

Back when she was sporting purple hair, Katy Perry shot the cover for Elle’s September 2012 issue wearing a Bottega Veneta dress, which Salma Hayek wore to the ‘Prometheus’ London Premiere, plus a black-and-white Yin and Yang manicure.

The singer also wears a printed Etro dress and YSL for the Carter Smith shoot whilst dishing to Elle about everything from her career, being a role model, marriage and relationships.

The magazine hits newsstands on August 14. Head over to to read more or check out the highlights below.

On relationships and marriage: “I obviously have a lot to say right now…I’m a woman who likes to be courted – strongly. Never say never, I guess you’d say. I’ll let love take the lead on that.”

On her career: “I love what I do, and when I don’t love what I do, I’ll make a change…I can’t be the candy queen forever.”

On being a role model: “I have no regrets…I’m not going to be everything to everyone. I can’t tell a person when it’s time for them to have sex. Or if they should have a cigarette…But I try to live my life with a lot of integrity, and, hopefully, that sends a message.”

    The cover isn’t bad, but it isn’t my favourite either.

    Ohmygod. This has to be my new favorite Elle cover! Her hair, for once, is colored but not tacky. And the eye makeup…is to die for. And WHAT A DRESS. I’m blown away.

      I don’t think it’s Photoshop, it’s just that her makeup is so dramatic

        Magazines are known for photoshopping excessively. Makeup wouldn’t change her features
