It really says something about Katy Perry that we can look at her in a wild print and glorified bra and say, “What’s wrong with Katy? She looks so subdued. Is she depressed?”
Katy Perry attends the 2013 Kids’ Choice Awards in a Hervé Léger by Max Azria dress accessorized with an Anita Ko bracelet, a Melinda Maria nailhead ‘Heart+Arrow’ bangle, Nikki Baker yellow gold and diamond hoop earrings, EF Collection stud earrings, and Christian Louboutin pumps.

This is a look that says “I decided at the last ten minutes to get up off the couch, brush off the Cheetoh’s dust, and head out to hear what the Choices of The Kids might be this year. I just threw this on. Kids love tits, right?”
To be fair, she looks pretty good. It’s just that it has none of that Katy oomph and sense of fun. It’s just “Here’s some wild, swirling colors. And my tits.” The pumps are nice, but again; somewhat disapointingly standard.
If you think we’re being hard on her (and we admit, we are, because she looks just fine), you should know we have a secret rating scale for Katy Perry outfits. We rate it based on a measurement known only to us as the Smurfette. Basically, nothing ever topped the Smurfette dress for pure Perry perfection. For us, she never really approached that combination of funny, campy, fabulous and sexy all in one outfit. So we can say that the original Smurfette dress equals 5 Smurfettes, because it’s perfect. This getup? 1.5 Smurfettes on the fun scale. She could’ve at least dyed her hair chartreuse or something.
