Okay, that’s not fair. It’s more of a riff on late ’60s mod styles, which you would think would suit Katy without having to fuss with her look too much. In fact, we’re sure of it. And hey, we’re all for changing up a celebrity or model’s looks for a fashion editorial, but what’s the point in booking Katy Perry and then doing everything you can to disguise the fact that she’s Katy Perry? The images are pretty good, but we feel like she’s lost somewhere under all that styling.
