Katy Perry in Tadashi Shoji at the “Smurfs 2” Premiere

Posted on July 29, 2013

And now… a little Sophisti-Katy:

 

Katy Perry attends the premiere of “Smurfs 2” at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, California in a Tadashi Shoji blue leather dress with mesh bodice and flower detailing paired with Pedro García shoes.

Well, it’s a hell of a far cry from her first Smurfs movie premiere dress, which remains one of T Lo’s all-time favorite red carpet looks. But to everything there is a season, and even silly pop stars sometimes want to put their breasts away and stop dressing like slutty clowns, so we suppose we should just support her in her quest for chic. Even Katy Perry wants to grow up eventually, kittens.

We’re not inclined to love an all-one-color look like this, but we’ll put aside our normal shrieks of “MATCHY!!!” just this one time. It’s theme dressing. Almost every lady showed up at this event wearing blue. The bodice is pretty but the skirt looks extremely heavy in comparison and seems to just hang off her. We could forgive the matchy shoes, but those are pure 1965 bridesmaid matchy shoes and that’s perhaps a bridge too far for us. A dress like this needed something modern, because it’s a retro style with a modern twist. You pair it with retro shoes and the whole “modern twist” thing goes away.

Basically, it’s a disappointingly limp entry for a “Katy Perry at the premiere of Smurfs2” look.
