Katy Perry in Versace at the MOCA’s 35th Anniversary Gala

Posted on March 31, 2014

In a way, it’s kind of nice to know that not only does Katy still fall off the style wagon, but that she falls off hard.

Her style had gotten so grown up and sophisticated lately that there’s something almost refreshing about seeing her out looking so tacky-ass. Not only is the dress hiddy, but she’s also sporting three mismatched neon yellows in one look, down to her fingernails. Whatever it was you and your stylist had a fight over, apologize immediately, Katy. This is an act of revenge from someone you’ve wronged, clearly.

We’re just so comforted to know we’ll still have plenty of opportunities to rag on her for terrible taste.

    The bracelets are a NO and she needs to loos the flaps.This could have worked as shorts.

    • decormaven

      Charming Charlie bangles. Bad choice.

  • NMMagpie

    She looks like an extra in a low budget sci-fi movie.

    • demidaemon

      I was thinking Goth Sheera stand in, personally.

      • NMMagpie


  • Robbyn

    Scrolldown fug FTW!

    • Clash D

      The Holy Crap of Scrolldown Fugs.

  • thecitysleeps

    I started from the top, and I was like ‘wtf T&Lo, that tagline is kinda harsh….then I scrolled down…

    …never doubt the masters.

    • bravobravp

      the gofugyourself girls perfectly named that moment as “scroll down fug”

  • Twigg

    Those bracelets look like the ones given to kids during Fourth of July parades.

  • Aidan B

    Woah. her facial expression makes her look just like Kaley Cuoco in that second shot. In other news, this is laughably bad.

  • alyce1213

    If the dress had been one length or the other, it would be fine. Plastic-y glow bracelets were a bad choice.
    Her head looks great, the bangs are not too heavy (like Angela Bassett’s were).

  • hughman

    Xena : Wore-it-all Pantsless.

  • @Biting Panda

    Mortal Kombat is not a style.

    • sugarkane105

      But it should be.

      • demidaemon

        I would love to see more style inspired by videogames on the RC, just for the chance to rag on it.

    • Clash D

      I KNEW it reminded me of something! HAHA!

  • Danielle

    Wow, that wig is horrible.

    • @Biting Panda

      It may not be a wig? She’s been sporting this hair the last few appearances. It’s awful every time. It’s bad, regardless.

      • Danielle

        If it’s not a wig, that’s even worse!

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      I believe the word I would use is “janky”.

      • demidaemon

        It’s definitely janky. How long we’ll have to see it depends on whether it is a wig or real hair. I hope to the fashion gods that it is a wig.

  • Capt. Renault

    “Hello everyone, and welcome to my pubic flap.”

    • JauntyJohn

      ok, that made me laugh.

  • Janet B

    I hope the bracelets glow in the dark, otherwise there’s no excuse.

  • Nancer

    This look is also, somehow, aging her. I think it is a combo of the makeup and hairstyle. Just not working in her favor.

    • Alyssa

      My first thought is how aging her makeup is.

  • uprightcitizen

    When I saw the thumbnail, I thought “why are they featuring Joyce DeWitt?”

    • decormaven

      “Come and knock on our door…”

  • deelup

    Her make up is gorgeous.

  • Anna

    She’s missing some glow sticks.

    • Jacob Bowen

      She should be twirling them in this outfit.

      • Anna

        She should be. When I saw this look, my first impression was In Living Color Fly Girl at a rave.

        • Jacob Bowen

          Maybe SHE should spin too, then maybe those flaps will get out of the way.

          • Anna

            Haha, yes. Maybe if she had been dancing, this outfit wouldn’t look so bad.

  • In_Stitches

    That’s a loin cloth that thought it could sneak into the Oscars. Spoiler Alert: it can’t.

  • Kent Roby

    Those mudflaps are a trip. Literally.

  • ashtangajunkie

    “Turtleneck. Sleeveless. Loincloth.” And the girl said yes.

  • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

    man her wig is janky too…drag queens everywhere would be ashamed.

  • jw_ny

    Formal loincloth…for when she “roars”…

  • Cyprienne Zed

    I want to see this on Maria Sharapova WHILE she’s playing tennis. That’d be hilarious.

  • Noah

    Mostly: What in the fuck is that bracelet? It looks like she was at some tacky 18+ night at a club and forgot to cut her wristband off.

  • charlotte

    The hair is very Cleopatra on a bad hair day. Which probably never happened.

  • If she ditched the shorts I can see Rihanna werqing this, with fiercer shoes.

  • DLJoe

    I can’t look at this without being reminded of Detox’s awkward candy dress.

    • demidaemon

      I knew I had seen this somewhere before!

  • formerlyAnon

    Confirming my knee-jerk lack of enthusiasm for Versace.

    Though if you only look at her waist up it’s better than is probable.

  • Gatto Nero

    To add to the craziness, the flaps are pooling on the floor. She can only walk by straddling the foreflap.
    The mind boggles.

    • clevergirl70

      “straddling the foreflap”… you’d think it was a nonsense phrase, or something you’d find in a much darker corner of the internets.
      And yet, here we are.

      • Gatto Nero

        It’s a phrase I hope never to have to use again.

  • I kind of like the idea of the dress – if the mini was maxi length and the flap opening was on one side, I could get behind it more. And trying to match neon colors is always a no no.

  • Catsss

    I actually don’t mind this although I don’t like the bracelets and the hair looks a bit wiggy. She looks like a space vixen and her earrings look like little pudgy aliens.

  • ballerinawithagun

    I’m just wondering….how did they make her look flat chested???

    • kimmeister

      I was pondering the same thing!

    • Jacob Bowen

      Wow, this is a MAGIC outfit.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Too bad. A pair of scissors and this could have been cute.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Put a pair of wings on her and she is the Evil Bumble Bee Queen.

  • Sophie

    She looks like a japanese comic character. Her earrings are fun.

  • LeelaST

    Loincloths – not just for men.

  • Katie

    Pulp Fiction Uma called, she wants her hair back.

  • kfizz

    I keep scrolling to the next photo thinking… it’s close, but it’s not that bad… and then it is that bad, every time. I feel like it’s a cool design in theory, but I can’t figure out what change in execution would save it.

  • MerBearStare

    You guys, I think there’s something wrong with me. I don’t think that this is that bad.

  • YoungSally

    Lord I thought that front panel was just a black box put in to cover her good (albeit a bit used) China.

  • She’s auditioning for the role of Mystique in the next X-Men movie? Seriously, paint her skin blue, her hair red, and give her a skull belt. She’ll look more like the old comic book version than any other Mystique actress.

    • demidaemon

      Huh. That, sadly, make perfect sense.

  • Evan

    Love her hair though. She should stick with it for a while

    • Gatto Nero

      Wig, I think.

      • Evan

        Probably, but I think it suits her. She should try it with her real hair if she has any left.

  • SorayaS

    Whyy the red in the shoes??

    • Isabel

      Louboutin – red soles and red liners. Just to show that it’s the real thing.

  • Stella Zawistowski

    All she needs is the right headdress and she’s Chun Li from Street Fighter II. Or maybe Chun Li’s evil twin sister.

  • Isabel

    Are there any more Versace designers in the pipeline? Time for them to take over the dress design side of the business

  • enchanted216

    Except for the bracelets, I kinda like it 😉

  • All that dress needs is a big red cross, and Katy could go on crusade.
    OTOH, those are some killer shoes.

  • Trickytrisha

    Face and hair are super.

  • B_C_J

    Hideous from head to toe

  • a_liking

    i don’t care, i love it. it’s a costume.

    • Amel

      Yep, this is all “Katy Perry does Tron.”

    • Guest

      It’s like one of those reversible dresses.

  • MannahattaMamma

    did she and Angela Bassett go to the same wig store last week? wussup with those bangs? bad bad bangs.

  • MarissaLG

    I really thought this was gonna be a solid black Calvin Klein-type dress & got super excited. So disappointing.

  • ScarlettHarlot

    Is that a wig? Whatever it is, it’s awful.

  • Lily

    I liked this from the front, but if you’re going to go day-glo, go all-in, or all out. A smidge here and there doesn’t work unless it’s just one piece. And the bangles scream dollar store discount bin.

  • kt

    Minus the shoes, she looks awesome

  • judybrowni

    Because floor-dragging loin cloths are the new thing?

    And what fun in the ladies room!

    Her stylist should be forced to hold them up so they don’t dip into the latrine.

  • Tee

    Thank you for giving me my new.favorite word “hiddy”.

  • icm

    It must be a real challenge to walk in this dress with those car wash flaps getting stuck between your legs.
