In or Out: Katy Perry in Roland Mouret

Posted on February 24, 2012

We must be end-of-the-week tired because we have to ask a question that we know is ridiculous, given the subject.


Katy Perry attends the Katy Perry Lashes created by Eylure Launch Event in Roland Mouret paired with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

Too much?

Vote Now!



OUT! Send her back to the Wonka factory.


Despite some reservations about Jen Aniston’s shocking new turn away from bathtowels, the minions couldn’t help but vote her bold experimentation an IN.

    • Anna Daugherty

      That dress would be really pretty in all one color, with those shoes and with her black bob back. 

      • Lexie

         Agreed, agreed. Black shoes would have done a lot to ground this look.

        I feel like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Nicki Minaj are almost exempt from IN vs OUT because they don’t care about conventional attire half the time.

        • Denise Alden

          Exemptions from IN vs. OUT are rare and hard-earned:  see Iman and Cher.  Maybe Gaga in a few years.  But this chickie and Nicki?  Teenage dream fake rebellious girls do not qualify for an exemption.

          • Lexie

             haha, well clearly Cher and Iman are exempt because they are legends. But generally speaking, I feel like an In vs. Out is judged on whether or not the celeb looks appropriate for the venue, put together, etc. And Nicki and Katy seem to throw that out the window and wear something outrageous so people have something to talk about. Unlike someone like Jessica Chastain or Emmy Rossum who wants to look really good/attractive so that directors take notice and they build a put-together reputation.

        • Stefanos Mantyla

          “… are almost exempt from IN vs OUT because they don’t care about conventional attire half the time.”

          Or conventional wisdom, perhaps?

    • Jill_3

      I must have hit my head or something, because I like it. Fridays are always weird for me.

      • miwome

         Me too. Cray.

      • Cathy S

         I like it too. I just wish her hair was a different color. But I think she’s in.

    • BeeBeauNYC

      OUT.  She’s got a killah bod, but all that blue just makes her look like a caricature of herself.

      • Rebecca Johnson

        But we’re talking Katy Perry here – she wears dresses that have her name sewn onto them. She IS a caricature. I feel like a caricature *of* her would be two breasts warbling something annoyingly catchy.

        • BeeBeauNYC

          LOL – that would be quite a scene to see!!

        • Amelia Logan

          Jessica Rabbit singing “the song that never ends”

    • Zaftiguana

      I actually think that dress is pretty tremendously improved by the two-tone contrast alteration. I don’t know if she had anything to do with that, though, and the hair is appalling, so I have to go with OUT.

      • Lori

         I liked the two-tone until I got to the bottom. The color contrast really makes the ruffle things look like the mud flaps from a Smurf-mobile. Combined with the rest of this match-matchy blue mess it’s definitely an OUT.

        • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

          OK, well, I was going to vote her in until I got to your Smurf-mobile comment, which formed a mental picture that I cannot undo.  So even though I think the dress is adorable, I HATE the blue hair and those shoes are just plain fugly.  OUT. 

    • kingderella

      i dont particularly like her or her style, but she has really established her aesthetic by now, and this is a decent version of it.
      IN, i guess.

      • Tadiana Walton Jones

        This.  Another lukewarm in from me.

    • Judy_J

      Am I wrong, or are all her fashion choices based on her current hair color?  Seems she’s been wearing lots of blue lately. I must say, though, I like the dress, and her shoes appear to fit properly, so I give her an IN. I’m feeling magnanimous today.

    • Chloe Stabler

      It works if you crop out her head, but that makeup and hair just ruins it for me.  OUT.

      • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

        And the hair.  Look hun, if you want blue hair, by all means, go for it.  But don’t have blue hair with your natural roots showing. It kinda ruins the effect.

        • TheOriginalLulu

          I wonder if she’s just going to let it grow out like that and have half black, half blue hair for a while. She crazy.  

          • Beth M.

             The funny thing is, that the color combination you describe is exactly how my hair was before its current iteration…and I quite liked it!

        • FishInThePercolator

          Especially for her own launch party!  Unforgivable!

        • Lizzie

          Yes!  Go big or go home!

      • janedonuts

        Yeah. Even if she had just not done her bangs that way it might have been OK.

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Hello, my name is Violet Beauregarde. Where’s my gum? OUT.  

      • Dominique C

        Exactly! OUT! 

    • Julianne Mullikin

      In!!!  She’s always doing something different and taking risks with her hair!

    • bluefish

      Bless her.  I will always love her for the Teenage Dream song.  As an old woman I FLOVE that song.  And I’ve got nothing agst her.  Cute dress, like the shoes.  Lot of blue.  She should change up the hair and not go so 40s and 50s with it when she wears these frocks.  Contrast is good.

    • AuntieAnonny

      Too much? Just enough. IN

    • Gus Casals

      If we decry matchy-matchy accessories… what about HAIR? And Shoes?
      She’s screaming a big, blue OUT

    • Taija HU!

      I cannot get over how horrid her hair looks – OUT.

      • Nariya

        I’m with you. I’m pretty sure that the Downton Abbey stylists never intended that O’Brien’s hair be a GOOD fashion statement.

    • Kaitlyn

      In, but ONLY because it’s Katy Perry. It’s part of her schtick.  On pretty much anyone else, the ridiculous matchy-matchy of her outfit and accessories (and HAIR) would be ridiculous, but she actually manages to make it look cute.  The varying shades of blue helps, I think. More of a monochrome effect instead. 

    • Geno Boggiatto

      Although I’m a bit iffy on the hair, I can’t say that I dislike the dress and shoes. She always has fun with clothing (with varying degrees of success), but the mix of different blues is really working for me here. IN!

    • Susan Collier

      Her monochromaticity drives me nuts. “If my hair is blue, so must be my clothes.”

    • fireontiger

      That hair is terrible. With all the money Katy Perry makes, she can’t get her roots touched up?

      I can’t even look at the rest of it. It’s too distracting. Burn it with fire!! Out.

    • Jessica

      I like it all.  She’s killin’ it.

    • Roz

      She’s a Smurf. IN.

    • Alison McAfee


    • MoHub

      If Mila married Kenley, they might produce that dress.

    • DaringMiss

      It is an IN for Katie Perry.  It is not an in for any other human.  It will not be an in for Katie Perry in 5 years.

      And she does look better in it than the model does.  

    • sherrietee

      Get rid of the wilma meets marge simpson hair and she’d be in.  

    • Grace

      That hair style is hideous, and not in an interesting or funny way. Out for that alone.

    • Kathrine Marlow

      I’d like it more if everything below the initial lighter blue was in the darker blue, but on her it works.  It’s just as quirky as she is. IN

    • Jessica O’Connell

      WAY too much. Can she please get rid of the smurf hair now? The movie is done – you can stop promoting it! OUT.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      She looks a little bit like Blueberry Muffin from the Strawberry Shortcake gang, but I love it.

    • WhiteMage

      well the dress is gorgeous. but yeah. overkill. is she promoting the smurfs again?

    • Kristina Toma

      Violet Beauregard: The Divorced Years.

      Yeesh, I’m all for fun-colored hair, but just. No. I can’t wait for this blue phase to pass. 

    • LongTall_Sally

      OUT!  I don’t like the color coordinated hair-dress-shoes.  She would have been “in” if her hair had been black, or if the dress had been in pinks or purples.  As is, she looks too much like a cartoon character.

    • serenitynow02

      Matchy matchy hair offends me much more than matchy matchy shoes. I’m feeling irritable today and I’m giving her an out for the hair (though I think the dress is cute).

    • Stan

      in. I expect nothing less from her and the dress is cute!

    • Emily H

      I really like the dress and it fits her rocking bod beautifully. But I hate the blue Wilma Flintstone hair. And the shoes are too much. OUT.

    • Jenna Ryan Boatman

      She gives me the blues. Such a lovely girl, but blue hair, dress and those shoes … OUT.

    • clatie

      I think it’s pretty great.  Minor quibble – Katy!  If you want blue hair just wear a wig.  Your poor little scalp will be happier and your pillowcases won’t get wrecked.  Plus, you can get a bunch of wigs in fun colors and switch them around!  Have long hair one day and short the next!  Wigs are fab.  Trust me on this one.

    • leah besson

      its a little smurfy, but its Katy Perry and she’s not wearing a dress that lights up or a leotard.  IN.

    • Democracy Diva

      You know what? If she weren’t wearing those fucking hideous clip-on bangs, I’d give this an IN. Alas, there is no forgiveness for such a sin. OUT.

      • understateddiva

        To me, it looks like she tried to wrangle her chin-length hair into bangs with aggressive curling and pinning.  Either way, it looks silly.  I’d give her an IN though – she looks fun.

    • Brenna McClellan

      IN! She looks like an insane Barbie and I love it. Wish her hair was down though. It’s not doing her face any favors like that.

    • PeggyOC

      Oh.  With the hair.  I just can’t anymore.  She makes my teeth ache.  What could have been a super cute look (within the parameters of Katy-ness) ruined by not just the color, but the fact that it looks like someone applied it with a paint roller and then left the roller stuck in her bangs.  Not just blue hair, but streaky, uneven, roots-showing blue hair.  Sigh.  Do I even have to say “Out”?

    • unpiously

      If I could get away with looking like an anime character all the time, I’d be dressing like that too. IN.

    • sweetlilvoice

      In, look who is wearing it! Girl is rebounding nicely.

    • Antonija Mitt

      Cute dress.  Silly shoes and hair.  She looks like Jessica Rabbit’s BFF.  OUT. 

    • TieDye64

      IN. I mostly like this and the shoes make the look fun and very cute, but the hair is too much. 

    • samo_samo

      IN…but she’s right on the edge of taking a hard left into being out.

    • reddhouston

      It’s grading on a curve with Katy Perry….u expect a certain amount of matching (hair to dress) and other ridiculousness.  I think it fits her pretty good and is kind of fun. I say in.

    • elleg929

      The dress is IN.  The hair is a big fat OUT!

    • Sara__B

      She’s an unapologetic cartoon caricature of a pop star, but it works for her. IN, especially since the dress is cute and not the slightest bit vulgar.

    • mommyca

      Is it a “blue” day at TLo International? The last 3 posts had blue outfits!!!! :-) 

      • Ennovi_R

         All we need know is a post about Beyonce’s baby and it officially BLUE DAY!

    • snarkmeister

      I honestly wouldn’t hate the blue hair so much if she didn’t do that awful Wilma Flintstone thing with her bangs.  The blue shoes are a bit much for me, but I LOVE the dress.  In fact, I love the dress so much that I’m giving this an IN, despite the pepto bismol lipstick and the stupid cartoon hairstyle.

    • RebeccaKW

      I don’t hate it.  The dress is cute, I like it a little better 2 tone.  Shoes are cute.  The hair…I’m fine with the blue hair, that style is hideous.  I have the same opinion of this as I did of Rihanna’s sexy nightgown…it’s an In for Katy b/c it’s her look, but on anyone else I would HATE it. 

      She should have some blue lipstick on to complete the effect of total color dedication.

    • Shoelover1512

      Hate the hair but love everything else. IN!

    • Patrick Cleary

      A bit. A different color shoes would be good. I get what she’s going for, but it’s a bit too expected, and she really tries to be unexpected.

    • SapphoPoet


    • Joanna Schuth

      In, because it’s her thing, and the dress is flattering, and I’m feeling generous. 

    • Laura Schultz

      OUT for the hair…

    • AlexisPayne

      I kind of like it, but fix that hair. in.

    • funkypeanut

      The blue hair’s a little tired by now. And the dress and shoes that match? She looks like Judy Jetson’s home ec teacher. Out.

    • MilaXX

      Did she not learn from Viola? OUT
      This may sound crazy but if the dress had been rendered in all one color like the models and she had worn a black shoe, this could have worked.

    • Isana Leshchinskaya

       shoes and hairstyle make for an OUT

    • Ben Perry

      Totally out, dress is cute, shoes are amazing, but the smurfette hair has got to go. 

    • MissFern

      Out for the hair.

    • Anplica Fiore

      You guys complain about other starlets who match their dress with their hair.  Out.

    • Beardslee

      In.  She is her own person.  However, the shoes are really clumsy.  Look at them from the front.  Hooves with straps and bows.

    • lonepear

      I think she’s adorable, and actually looks like she has fun getting dressed. As someone who still likes to play dress-up in fancy clothes–IN.

    • Stella Zawistowski

      Ugh. Even Barbie wouldn’t take a monochromatic look THIS far. OUT.

    • Kristy Evans

      Those shoes are dreadful – if Betty Draper turned to stripping. I can’t even talk about the hair. I like the dress, but would have preferred a skinny belt over that bow. Katy, why are you fighting the hot? OUT.

    • Mercy

      Full disclosure: I love KP.  Thinking the shoes put this into ridiculous territory, BUT I love the cut of that dress so much, and the pairing of the two blues, that I’m going with an IN for this one!

      • Mercy

        PS – the ribbon-bow belt is ridiculous.  It cheapens the whole look – designers, please stick to narrow belts for suit-cut dresses like this!  Thanks!

    • Amy Ellinger

      IN. Adorably cray-cray, but she looks happy for once, and I can’t help but love her.

      Agreed that adding another color to the dress improved it greatly.  Black shoes would probably be a better choice, but I’m a sucker for teal anything, so I’ll give her a pass. (and thank god it’s not black platform pumps)

    • nannypoo

      When you keep in mind who this is and how hard she tries to be different, then it’s easy to like this look for her. But the blue hair has been done to death. It’s not original or interesting in any way. Time to move on.

    • Judy S

      IN. How would one know who she is if her hair wasn’t blue?

    • mshesterp

      I hate the hair and while the shoes are cute, they’d be better in black.  But overall I think she looks good (again, ignoring the hair)–so IN for me.

    • AthenaJ

      The dress? In.

      The tired blue hair with roots showing and that damn crooked ‘looks like I broke my ankle cause my spiky platforms are way too damn high’ pose? Out out OUT!!!

    • eight_of_nine

      IN. It’s a great dress and I do like the shoes with it.  But lose the blue hair, Katy! Your roots are showing!

    • Ellen Behm

      IN. I love the 2 shades of blue on the amazingly adorable dress! The shoes are, well, not MY style, but they’re hers so that’s an in. I do hate the blue hair, but it’s not enough for the out so, yep… in.

    • BazoDee

      I agree that the shoes being blue are a bit much – but it is an event where they are launching a Katy Perry brand of product -so I would expect full Katy Perry to be there in all her Katy Perriness. IN. 

    • girliecue

      I cannot STAND sausage roll bangs and hers are an unusually egregious version. I’m recovering from stomach flu and now I feel nauseous all over again. Blech! Out!

    • Allyson Wells

      I like the two shades of blue (hair not included), but I think she should have gone with black shoes. I’m tired of this blue hair on her… she’s so pretty and it does nothing for her. I CAN’T STAND those bangs!

    • blue

      The bangs are dreadful and I’m not crazy about the blue hair in general, but overall IN. The outfit is way matchy but still cute and she makes it work. 

    • Alloy Jane

      LOVE the dress but something about KP ruins it.  I don’t hate blue hair but she just tries way to hard to pretend she doesn’t care what anyone thinks.  And the shoes give her Bugs Bunny feet.   Also, anyone else see that side-by-side of her and Paula Deen?  Hilarious.

    • HobbitGirl

      I hate the hair and shoes, but girl’s ROCKING that dress. I say a qualified IN. And at least she doesn’t look so much like a penis here.

    • evelina lundmark

      She picks interesting pieces but she styles everything as if she’s a cartoon character, which i find kind of… boring? Fake? I don’t know. OUT, probably…

    • Emma Jean

      Ugh those bangs hurt. You wanna do a costume look like that? Great, you’re Katy Perry. But make your bangs look like you got ’em in salon not Season 2 Peggy Olson hacking at them. OUT

    • ringthing

      Not to get all touchy feely here, but she always gets herself up like she’s very insecure about her looks. That is a very pretty woman with a great figure, but we never get to see her, we only see omgkatyperry!! I’d love to see someone do a makeunder for her.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      She looks like a cartoon character. She always reverts to cutesey and matchy-matchy and it’s just impossible to take her seriously as any type of style maker.  It looks like she was inspired by Minnie Mouse and anime. One day someone is going to show her this picture and she is going to be so embarrassed. 

    • Laylalola

      Out. She’s got gorgeous lush black locks and this is what she does to her hair?

    • Delysia LaFosse

      I like the dress on her, but the hair and shoes are too awful not to tip it over the scale. OUT.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      Smurfette is not a lifestyle choice.

    • NormDeplume720

      I kinda love it, except for the shoes. I’d really love it if we’d let the giant clunky platforms die a peaceful death.

    • greatscoutm

      It’s a little too Smurfashiony for me.  Yes, if anyone could (kind of) pull this off, it’s Katy Perry but as an IN–Nay.

    • VicksieDo

      IN, gorgeous!

    • Bethany Roullett

      My actual thought was “Wait, I thought they stopped blogging ‘Pan Am'”.

      I think that might mean ‘out’.

    • NasserShaheen

      Out.  I was going to echo the ‘dress is fine but the head/hair ruins it’ but from certain angles that dress does her favours.  But I do love the shoes for some reason.  I haven’t had coffee yet today so that may explain it.

    • Pants_are_a_must


    • angelkutty

      In because if her hair was a normal color it would have been fine. 

    • Gara St. James

      Cartoon character really isn’t the right tone for this, is it? The dress is beautifully made, but I wish she weren’t wearing those shoes with it, or that hair. Begrudgingly, I will give her an “in” because the dress, on its own, is gorgeous.

    • spooki C

      She would get an IN if she would just touch up her dye job. There’s no excuse for faded hair, honey.

      It’s a cute dress but I’d prefer it with out the frou-frou at the bottom.

    • K

      I think it is like the dress she wore to the grammys. Would look really pretty if it wasn’t for the STUPID HAIR THAT RUINS EVERYTHING.

    • MzzPants

      Not a look for mere mortals.  IN.

    • Michelle Argento

      I find this dress pretty tame. And shoot me, but I love the hair. 

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      Great dress, she looks great in it, the shoes are fun and it’s frickin’ Katy Perry who has to be judged by a different standard because everything she wears is costume. IN, on the condition that she look into good wigs before she destroys her raven tresses entirely.

    • irielle

      I like it. It fits her pop persona. 

    • CQAussie

      The hair and the shoes are too much.  OUT.

      “Ulta welcomes you to Fabulous!”….”Not you, Katy.”

    • Olivia Vigrabs

      In, best she has looked in a long time.

    • Vaniljekjeks

      Yes, too much.  The dress is much nicer on the model in the one tone.  There are too many shades of blue here.

    • Jessi03

      Love the shoes, hate the lipstick.  I won’t necessarily say OUT, but I can’t even imagine myself giving Ms. Perry an In.

    • mjude

      OUT, i am over this look

    • Rebecca

      Am…am I a bad person for wanting to snatch those shoes right off her feet?

    • Greg Yoder

      I wouldn’t necessarily like this on anyone else, but I love it on her.  IN. 

    • Melissa Brogan

      Ugh. Out.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Smurfy, but cute.

    • Joyce VG

      IN! Katy is pretty.

    • PeaceBang

      Perfection! Or should I say, “She’s serving up some fierce Katy Perry realness?” At any rate, aside from the sad little roll of bangs that tells me she’s a sad divorcing girl, it’s totally adorable and she is bringing her special nuttiness 100%. 

    • Jessica Ballinger

      OUT, because I hate the bangs and I’m feeling extra bitchy.

    • JMansm

      I hate her in general. That dress is really cute. I also appreciate her dedication to that hair colour (we have now seen it in a few different incongruous styles) but it is aesthetically not pleasing with that dress. I feel like that dress would look really great with her hair just down (black or brown) and softly curled. 

    • Anathema_Device

      Really cute dress. Out because of the hair and the shoes. I guess that small window of sympathy I had for her is fast closing because she is starting to bug the shit out of me again.

    • Aaminah Khan

      IN. NEVER ENOUGH! <3

    • Lizzyisi

      The dress is cute and it suits her, but her make-up is awful and so are the shoes. She succeeds admirably at dressing like a cartoon which will never rise to the level of an IN, so this is OUT for me. “Costume” never says “In” to me and Perry *never* manages to walk the line between “costume” and “fashion” without toppling tits-first into costume. Basically, the dress either flatters her or it doesn’t, but she’s never an In because there’s no style–it’s just stylized.

    • mhleta

      This look is pretty much like her singing. Too much of the wrong note all at once. I want her to just go away. 

    • Sara L.

      I love it. Especially the shoes. IN.

    • Jeffrey D Foldenauer

      OUT. At first glance I thought ‘girl that’s not your dress’. On closer examination the dress is fine although I think the model wears it better. The problem is that there is way too much blue on her. The hair is just atrocious and worthy of an ‘out’ virtually no matter what she wore. The only thing I can say for the shoes is at least they are not putty–otherwise they are nothing special. 

    • Pupioso

      Wow the hair is a bit much. Too much of the blue/aqua going on. Make up not very good either. The dress looks “okay” but I wouldn’t call it great.

    • VicD

      Too much? More like blue much. That’s a big smurfette OUT

    • Liana Brooks

      A tentative IN. She looks good-ish. It’s normal for her so…. yeah, IN I guess.

    • artemis17

      OUT.  The smurf-colored hair kills it.  Considering her typical fashion as a pop star, if she got rid of that horrible blue hair, I’d be inclined to give it an in. 

    • Cousin_Rose

      In. Looks pretty and perfectly Katy. She makes the dress look better than it was on the model which is always a big plus.

    • turtleemily

      Too much shoe and needs a different hair color – out. The dress is wicked cute, though.

    • PastryGoddess

      IN with a meh.  She is Katy Perry, of course she looks like she robbed smurfette and stole her clothes.  But they fit her well and she looks good…for Katy Perry

    • sleepycat

      I like it. IN

    • Nancy Marion

      OUT. Those shoes are horrid. The color contrast on her version of the dress makes her body look weird. And the roots? She’s going to have Oscar the Grouch green soon.
      Actually, I’d welcome a cranky Katy Perry who has a trash-can lid bra and sings about trash…

    • TSkot

      IN, but how I hate that blue hair!

    • charlotte

      Is that a real person?

      • rowsella

        She might be a cartoon…. or a refugee from a Manga cos-con.

    • Beth M.

      I say IN. While I have no doubt the overall consensus will be “out,” the only thing I don’t like about this is the hairstyle. Those bangs are just too tightly rolled. (Also, while we’re chatting: that particular shade of blue hair is not the most flattering, girl. Having rocked the blue [and black, together] myself for a while, I know what I’m talkin’ about.

    • Kayceed

      It is her duty, as a purveyor of slightly-smutty bubblegum pop, to dress like this. However, she should take heed that it is not a look that ages well (see Fergie).

    • NCDFan

      Out – enough with the blue hair.

    • myblackfriendsays

      I like how her hair matches her dress. IN!

      IN…but yes, too much.  That blue hair has got to go…the rest is adorable.  Love the pin-up girl quality to the look.

    • butter nut

      IN, because it’s her thing now.  that said, this has to be the last time she pulls out the smurfette drag.  she must immediately go die her hair another color, and find another look.  because this one is TIRED! 

    • BayTampaBay

      OUT! Never match your shoes to your hair!

    • Melanie Harrison

      I agree with what others have said. The dress and shoes, I could take. It’s the awful hair and make-up that ruin it for me. OUT.

    • kimmeister

      Love the dress, in its two-toned gloriousness, but would have paired it with black shoes.

      Her bangs start almost at the back of her head, what the heck?  Yuck.

    • Pamela

      As someone who never was able to stand in high heels for long, I am constantly amazed at celebrities/stars ability to balance in what look like pair after pair of the cruelest shoes ever made (save for ballet slippers).  How they can stand and move while practically en pointe is amazing to me.  Just looking at them makes my feet ache.  They’re devices of torture sporting designer labels; they go way beyond f*ck me shoes into architecture.

      • holdmewhileimnaked

        i think they must have botox [or whatever it is, cant remember exactly] put into the soles of their feet to stop the hurting. i really do think that & it can really be done, i just cant remember the name of the procedure.

    • benjamin478

      I’ll say IN

    • Donna Lee

      OUT.  Her hair is making my internal organs hurt.

    • Cassie

      I love that dress so much that I can’t help but give her an IN.

    • thebitterkitten

      She looks like one of my old Barbie dolls that I tried to dye her hair by coloring it with a blue sharpie. OUT.

    • Stefanos Mantyla

      Not a bad dress on its own, but this is just not that kind of variation of Katy Perry I can work up an ounce of love over. OUT.

    • Terri

       I think she looks really sweet here and better than she has in awhile.  The dress fits well and is cute.  It’s all a little too matchy-matchy, and while I like the blue hair, girl needs a touch up.  The shoes are the wrong shoes for this dress, too heavy, too distracting.  I think I have to go with in, though, for some progress. 

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      fabulous dress, fabulous shoes, maybe better separate than together, however [just like, maybe, the marriage] [couldve told them both that two years ago, saved everyone time & trouble. anyway]. hairstyle is early 60s annoying, more annoying even than the celebrity is the event the celebrity is attending. wow, we really are at the end of the world arent we.

    • marywv

      Exempting the hair, this is cute fun and sassy. IN.

    • Sophie Collier

      She’s always been a little bit of a cartoon character, but I wish she’d ditch the stupid blue hair.  That’s really not cute over the age of 16.  And the overall battle-of-the-blues of this ensemble makes it an OUT.

    • Pennymac

      Def an in from me, especially from the neck down. I really loath the airplane tidy-bowl hair, tho. But the dress and the shoes, while matchy, look rather smashing.

    • demidaemon

      IN. She looks great here. It’s never too much!

    • demidaemon

      IN. She looks great here. It’s never too much!

    • StrandedFashionista

      Black shoes would have been better, but I like it. IN. 

    • StrandedFashionista

      Black shoes would have been better, but I like it. IN. 

    • elemspbee

      In. She’s made this dress much more interesting than that sad-looking model. The dress is only worth a look because KP has made something out of it here.

    • Aly Light


    • Kati Irons

      You know what? She’s wearing it, not the other way around. She’s totally owning it. She seems like she’s sticking with this blue hair thing for the mo, so I like seeing her have fun with it.  I say IN 

    • mike__tv

      Too much blue, too much mini mouse nonsense, easy, OUT! 

    • saanrio

       Too much blue.  The dress should have been left, instead of modified, and her hair needs to be re-dyed (preferably to something not blue).  Between the hair, the dress and the shoes, it is all too much.


    • Merneith

      I don’t know that I really like her schtick, but, well … it’s her schtick. And insofar as this is a textbook example of her schtick, it seems wrong to ding it for being schtick-y. Of course, it’s schticky. It was meant to be schticky. And this is a perfect realization of her schtick.

      So, In. 

    • belfebe

      I usually like Katy Perry in whatever she chooses, but I don’t like this.  It’s not the dress, which is okay.  It’s the hair.  Not because it’s blue, but because it’s not very well done.  And I love the shoes, but not with the dress.  The whole thing looks tired and not really Katy Perry good.

    • Sarah Guernsey

      I think she stole this outfit from Effie Trinket…..

    • altalinda


    • sweetestsith

      In! The hair is a bit much, but I think the two-tone sets off the lines of the dress nicely, and I dig the goofy barbie-matchy shoes.

    • Jamie

      IN – but it’s time to let that blue hair go

    • Glynis Fediuk

      Huh, I didn’t know Pan Am had been renewed for another season.

      (Out, mostly because the blue hair makes it look majorly costume-ish).

    • Lisa

      Ehhh, out.  It’s a bit much, yeah.  She looks great, but she has nothing to break up the blue.

    • megohd

      Is she still promoting The Smurfs?

    • xmixiex

      her hair looks like crap, and it has nothing to do with the blue.  neck down- sure.  

    • Melanie Clark

      I feel like I’m taking crazy-pills, but I like it. IN

    • SorayaS

      Okay, the hair and makeup is wacky but from the neck down this is WERQ-worthy in my eyes so I’d say it averages out into an IN. I’m glad she went easy on the accessories because that is what would have tipped her over the edge into ridiculousness (seems I have a high threshold for the ridiculous!)

    • prettybigkitty

      On principle Smurfette can not be in.  So, out.  

    • solidcurrency

      Love the dress, but dear god those shoes. OUT.

    • jcolli69

      It’s certainly a “whole lotta look” .(I can’t type that phrase without hearing Tim’s concerned voice).

      I think she’s throwing herself full force into her bubblicious “Katy Perry” persona given she’s going through a divorce. Times are trying, let’s cut her some slack. IN.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      oh IN I suppose.

    • Therese Bohn

      In, I love aqua, and she’s a ocean breeze.  Katy’s doing her best while having the blues over her divorce.

    • random_poster

      Yes, too much.  The dress looks fabulous on her, though. 

    • MmmmmmmmK

      Usually on the In or Out, the thumbnail of the face looks great, but the outfit looks horrible. Here it’s the other way around. I’m not opposed to neon hair, but here it just looks like mold, and it’s aging, like she’s a member of the B52s. It’s a shame, because the dress is very cute and makes her ass look great. Shoes are awful. The pink lipstick is cartoonish. Since the dress is supposed to make her look good, and it doesn’t, it’s an OUT.

    • rainwood1

      IN, but I’m grading on a curve for her.

    • SatelliteAlice

      I am going with IN but I think it could be improved by black shoes.

    • quiltrx

      That dress is really cute, and it looks great on her.  IN with a question…

      Is she ONLY going to wear BLUE while her hair is this color????

    • Stacy Parker Cole


    • tallgirl1204

      She’s Katie Perry.  It’s what she does.  And it’s cute, happy and beautifully made.  In.  

    • j_anson

      IN! Not that I’m saying that hair is well-advised. Heh.

    • gillian holroyd

      In. Perfectly her.

      Extra credit for looking good in the glare of the sun.

    • Alexander Peterhans

      Those shoe-like things. OUT.

    • Fatima Siddique

      Horrible. She looks like she got styled by a party of six year olds at her local Libby Lu.

    • PantherontheRunway

      I can’t even take my eyes away from her hideous hair, long enough to decide.
      No hate on colored hair, but hers looks tortured :(

    • bitterk

      She looks like a cartoon princess in a Disney movie and that is not a compliment

    • Ana Cedillo

      i mean its not that great, but she doesnt look bad so IN

    • L.E. Bruce

      IN…I think she looks exactly like she wants to look.  And I approve.  

    • formerlyAnon

      C’mon. It’s Katy Perry. At an event to promote a Katy Perry-branded product. **!!KATY PERRY!!** is the only thing that could possibly be “in,”  in context.

      In the real world, the one the rest of us inhabit, it wouldn’t be in, but here, yes. (I  also prefer the two-tone dress).

    • granddelusion

      Shes OUTTA here!

    • Grace Ritt

      IN. I love the theme. NEVER TOO MUCH FOR A DRAG QUEEN.

    • lesmaha

      out. sick of that hair.

    • JustJenn142

      I’m done with Katy’s blue period.

    • Rachel

      IN! I love it.

    • Amelia Logan

      Since it’s a brand launch no.

    • Tom Markiewicz

      look, she dresses as a character just as much as lady gaga, or swinton for that matter. i think she does it marvellously.

    • Bozhi

      It is a Katy Perry IN as opposed to any “not Katy Perrys” . 

    • Qdahling

      She bugs me an this is Smurfy, and yet, I like it. It’s been a long week for me too.

    • Aniela Marie Perry

      Aww I have to give my sister an IN despite the crunchy looking hair 😉

    • Susan Crawford

      She definitely has the figure for Mouret, Her posture, as always, is impeccable. I am definitely ready for her to move n from that Smurfette Betty Page hairdo – assuming she can walk at all in those shoes. If she CAN walk in them, I salute her! Givinv ex-Mrs. Russell Brand an IN here, if only because she is not dressed in simething that looks like a cupcake.

    • ccm800

      OUT. Over her.

    • korilian

      It’s Kay Perry. There is no such thing as ‘too much’ when it come to her. In.

    • Fifi LaRoux

      I really like it. IN.

    • ChristySchiff

      I love it. IN!  I think the shoes are too much, but then I haven’t heard that she fell, and it certainly gives it a little more Carmen Miranda, so that’s fine.  She looks terrific.

      [plus, I would love a sign that reads “XYZ…welcomes you to fabulous”

    • Rachel Lee

      I’m giving her an In. It fits nicely, the colour is fresh, the shoes are crazy but they suit her to a tee. 

    • Vickiefantastico

      In. On anyone else it would look ridiculous. On her, it’s adorable.

    • AnnMarie Ashley de Serpa

      The dress has beautiful structure, but the fabric looks a lot like felt.  Dare to say the hair helmet is slightly reminiscent of Wilma Flintstone? Out: She’s a pretty girl who can do much better.

    • Anonymoth

      Oh, please. So IN.

    • ChaquitaPhilly


    • RedRaven617


    • Pterodactyl111


    • DeborahLipp

      Not enough, given who it is. But  IN.

    • butterflysunita

      I think she looks adorable.  IN.  But I always cut singers a lot of slack–they’re allowed to be outrageous and over the top. 

    • CatherineRhodes

       OUT. I’m sick of her look. Grow out of the cartoon characters, already.

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      Smurfette gets an in from me even though I hate the hair.

    • MattCooper27

      Out. I’m tired of the cartoon character look. Betty Rubble, try something new.

    • mllesatine

      So in. Love her from head to toe.

    • FayeKat

       What the hell, i’m giving her an IN! although i hate the shoes…. at least she looks pretty comfortable and happy with her look, and all in all, like herself.

    • marilyn

      Out.  When I see blue, purple, green, etc., hair, the whole look is out.  In this particular case, the smurfette look extends to the dress, and the dress is out too.  I don’t like anyone with the ‘look at me’  strategy so amplified that they are wearing costumes and looking as strange as possible.  Her singing isn’t good either.

    • bailey debruynkops

      her hair is theatrically terrible but the dress is too good so in

    • Natasha Fairweather

      IN – this dress was made for Katy Perry. Wish her hair was a different colour though, pink or purple maybe.

    • Chrissie

      IN. Dress and shoes are cute.

      I hate the bangs though; she needs a different hair stylist. I’m okay with the hair color though.

    • Micaela Cannon

      You know what Katy? Dye your damn hair. Or get a wig. I can’t take this spray on dye job that looks like it came from a 6.99 bottle of wash out paint from Party City. Be as weird as you want to be, but stop being so cheap and half ass about it. If you’re going to be
      “unconventional” (although unconventional is becoming conventional with pop artists anymore) OWN IT. Ugh. I can’t even with her.

      Ps. OUT.

    • Patricia Gillett

      The original version of the dress was so much better. And I’m so tired of Katy.

    • AWStevens

      A reference to Smurfs would be too much too.


    • alyce1213

      Cartoon character well done. IN.

    • GTrain

      WAY too much. OUT

    • Sorana Tarmu

      So OUT.

    • Carrie L. Boram

      On anyone else it would be crackballs, but on Katy P it’s a delightful blue rinse of awesome.

    • julnyes

      I vote OUT on the basis of the bad hair and heavy make-up. The dress is cute though.

    • Ros Clarke

      IN. Duh.

    • gabbilevy

      Katy will never be anything but IN for me. Don’t like the bangs, though.

    • AzulFashion

      IN. Very cute dress, better than on the model.

    • Megan Sullivan

      I love the dress. I wish her hair were black or even blonde again. Just not blue. Still, she’s got her style and she’s working it. In.

    • Dagney


    • glennethph

      The two-tone was a good idea until they went for too much and put a lighter blue on the fins of the skirt.  The hair is just the blueberry on top of this mess.

    • Aisling O’Connor

      Couldn’t be more out. I am so sick of her cartoon bullshit.

    • TerraBanks

      OUT. I think the bottom fin-like parts ruined it.

    • jjfg

      Three words: Dyed to match.  OUT.

    • lalahartma

      Cute!  In!

    • R. L.

      Cute as can be!  IN.

    • sweet_potato

      I think she looks like Minnie Mouse. Out.

    • SayWTH

      Out – because it’s Katy Perry AND because those atrocities on her feet are considered SANDALS!!

    • David Petrison

      I’m digging blue hair Perry, but I think that’s more a Runway dress than a real world dress, as I think it can only handle about 20 minutes of wear before looking wrinkled and disheveled.

      Still, it’s a nice follow-up to her manga secretary look, so an IN.

    • DesertDweller79

      How are those shoes considered sandals?  I don’t get it.  I actually think the dress looks cute on her.  Better on her than the model.  However, the blue hair and those shoes ruin it.  Out.

    • LambeeBaby

      “In”  (in the Katy Perry spectrum of style). Some people just cannot be graded against others in their field since they are clearly impaired.

    • mhlmh

      For some reason the dress looks so demure on her. In any event, in.

    • Mary Nease

      IN. I love it, though I think her hair color needs some touching up. 

    • pdquick

      Too matchy-matchy with the hair and shoes. OUT.

    • Daniel Wheeler

      i like it she looks like Snow White but i could go without the blue hair is a bit too much.

    • oohsparkley!


    • Shawn EH


    • Alexandria Nichandros

      IN!!! She’s wilma!

    • Kristen Wirick

      Eh, I dig it. She’s in for me because I know she’s doing a “thing” and she looks damn good doing it.

    • elizonthelam


    • EEKstl

      IN – heck, it’s Katy Perry! (And the dress does look good on her).

    • Annie Moore

      In.  Is it too late to say so?  I’m not even a Katy Perry fan, but I can’t help but appreciate her unique style, and that she stays true to it, and herself.  My only nose-wrinkle is how the roots of her hair look swimmers’ green in some photos.
