Katy Perry in Roland Mouret on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Posted on April 22, 2014

Since we’re the types to read surface cues and spin out theories about one’s inner life, we have to say, Miss Katy, you seem confused.


Katy-Perry-Roland-Mouret-Jimmy-Kimmel-Live-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)Katy Perry makes an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in Hollywood, California in a Roland Mouret dress paired with Brian Atwood pumps.

Your green hair clashes with the green in your dress and your boobs are clearly quite angry at each other at the moment. That’s the biggest titscrepancy we’ve seen in ages. The skirt’s great, though. And the shoes are killer. But we can’t shake the feeling that you should be standing behind the Joker, cheering him on as he lowers Batman into a vat of acid or something.

    the bodice design of the dress will never permit a woman with breasts to appear normal and balanced

    • Alyssa_T_Robot

      maybe if the bodice sat lower on her chest, like it does on the model? couldn’t they just make the straps longer? idk, i think that would help a lot… but then you still got competing greens.

      • melisaurus

        it sits on the chest at about the same place for both. I kind of like it though.

        • J. Preposterice

          well, except that on the model, the stripy stuff comes in under the breast tissue, and on katy (because her breasts are larger), it cuts across. So combined with the asymmetric top of the green, makes it look like one of katy’s boobs is in a different location. it’s the same place on the torso, about, but not the same place on the boob. (Like how I can’t wear empire-waists that aren’t either maternity cuts or cut specially for the large of boob, because they’ll cut across at, like, the nipple. looks super-weird.)

          • holla

            and also the straps start at different heights so it make it looks like one boobs is bigger/higher than the other.

      • AmeliaEve

        It is because the darts come from opposite directions so they skew against one another.

    • ryenerman

      Yes I was thinking this is the most horrible of designs: a tromp d’oeil tiscrepancy

    • alyce1213

      It’s also because the bodice is faux leather, which rarely looks good across well-endowed bosoms. We see it all the time with leather and plastic dresses, where there’s usually a flattened, reflective uniboob effect. Material like that has to be soft enough and designed well so as not to do that, and this surely isn’t.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    So this is a scrollup fug. From the waist down, GET IT. From the waist up- girl, what? The dress looks like somebody glued a supermarket bag across the front, that hair is awful. There’s nothing wrong with just being pretty, Katy.

  • Sophie

    I don’t mind the tiscrepancy this time, since I rather like the rest of the dress. But the hair is really bad.

    • Kitten Mittons

      My thoughts exactly. The dress does some really nice things to her figure, so I can forgive the wonky straps and such.

      The hair is definitely not my thing, though, and looks terrible with the dress.

    • Rhonda Shore

      Katy’s hair reminds me of the premise of this porno book i found in my brother’s room when we were teenagers…it was about a continent of oversexed people w/green hair (and pubes!) living on Atlantis…

      • demidaemon

        WHAT? I mean…I don’t even fathom how this book exists.

        • Rhonda Shore

          i was about 13 or 14 and i read it cover to cover.

          • demidaemon

            I’m duly impressed.

          • Sophie

            Did your brother ever figure out that you’d read it? But good on him for reading crazy porno instead of boring porno, I guess. (Sorry about the missing “t” in “titscrepancy”. It isn’t a word I’m used to typing.)

          • Rhonda Shore

            I think he knew…but didn’t mind.

  • SewingSiren

    I think the dress is fabulous, and I think the longer length is very sexy. The hair looks like amateur hour, very tepid.

    • Janet B

      The length is terrific on her, but that’s Coachella hair.

    • zuzu

      Think of how nice a deep blue or deep purple dye job would look on her.

  • thecitysleeps

    That bodice is only made for ladies with small boobs who will fit in the green part of the dress. And that hair is terrible, man. What a horrible colour. The fit of the dress is great though, and adore the shoes.

  • Anna

    Katy Perry’s Beetlejuice Period.

    • Evan

      “Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice!”

  • mrspotts66

    hate the green hair. (oddly, i love the lilac hair on kelly osbourne).
    the dress? meh.
    the shoes, i love. but it looks like she’s going to keel over in a few of those pictures. ankle twister and such.

    • demidaemon

      It does help when the color is properly applied and there is some attempt to style it. Neither of those is going on here.

      • GillianHolroyd

        Too right. I actually like the color on her but not with this dress and not applied in patches to the lower 4/5ths of one’s hair.

  • rockin robin

    I’m surprised no-one has mentioned the shockingly clean makeup. I almost didn’t recognize her. I’m trying to decide if I like it or not.

    • demidaemon

      I actually have no problems with her make-up. As for the rest…

    • oohsparkley!

      Maybe that’s why I thought her face looked so different or tired.

  • Kent Roby

    “Sad and desperate, Table of one”. No, no, no on that dye job.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I kind of like that she didn’t go all green with the hair, but that shade is just blah. Her face looks great. I love the striped part of the dress….that blue part is just silly.

  • gabbilevy

    When I was a kid, we were taught to shampoo immediately after swimming so the chlorine DIDNT turn our hair exactly that shade of green.

    • Wendi126

      Oscar the Grouch green is never a good thing for hair

  • osu86

    Her hair reminds me of the joke my cousins and I would constantly tell each other in elementary school. A girl with beautiful blonde hair was asked how she got such beautiful blonde hair. She shrugged and said, “I don’t know, it’s natural.” A beautiful brunette was asked where she got her gorgeous hair. Like the blonde she replied, “it’s just natural.” Finally, a girl with striking green hair was asked where she got such bright green hair. She shrugged, wiped her nose and ran her fingers through her hair. She said, “I’m not sure. It’s natural.”

    It was way funnier in the second grade, complete with hand gestures.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Oh man, I’d forgotten that joke!

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Still funny!

  • MannahattaMamma

    You know, she kinda does look like Uma Thurman in her Poison Ivy days. Hmm… Emma Watson & Kieran S. take on Uma & Katy, in a superheroine special, with everyone wearing lycra and capes and whatnot.

  • It probably is time for a gender-swapped Joker. If we have to suffer interminable reboots, they might as well make them interesting.

    • KinoEye

      YES. I am very, very tired of all the interminable reboots, but let’s at least do something different with them. Besides, I’m of the popular opinion that Heath Ledger’s Joker is the final word on that character, future gender swaps notwithstanding.

      When they started churning out the new Spidermans, I remember thinking that maybe they should wait a few more years, when it’s somewhat fresh again. And then I realized that Hollywood is a money monster with no concept of “fresh,” and there is no end in sight to this nonsense.

      • If you say the word “reboot” around my husband he goes into a frothing rage screaming “We know he got bitten by a fucking spider”. So it seems several of us are tired of them.

        • formerlyAnon

          This story disposes me to think extremely well of your husband. Particularly since we know it comes from the mouth of an employable adult who had the sense to marry you.

      • random_poster

        My kids decided to have a superhero viewing weekend, and started by watching the first episode of the current Spiderman. They then discovered that we have the Tobey Maguire version and watched it the next day. Overall, they said they liked the one with Tobey better.

        • demidaemon

          I find that surprising, since I have major problems with that movie and the lore it used. Not to mention the actors. But, eh, they are kids. They’ll learn.

    • PostsYouCanDanceTo

      There is an alternate universe Batman story called Flashpoint where Bruce was killed as a child and dad Thomas became Batman while mom Martha became Joker. I think it was a one-off — I don’t know. I don’t read comics, I just know about this one.

    • SierraDelta

      Alicia, why are movie bigwigs not pounding on your door and pleading with you to write scripts for them? Whilst throwing OBSCENE amounts of money your way as an inducement, bien sur.

      Also, your discerning spouse should be a movie critic.

      • Both good questions. Possibly because the movie bigwigs know that my scripts would be mostly “So Tom Hiddleston is playing with my hair…”

        • SierraDelta

          Mine would be mostly “Tall kilted Highland Scot is playing with my hair. . .”

  • KinoEye

    I was thinking the skirt couldn’t be more flattering. But I just don’t think that bust is for well-endowed ladies, from looking at how it sits on the model. Any volume in that area skews the proportions all to hell.

    Yeah, she’s like a weird, off-brand blend of Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn.

    • Sarah

      Ha I thought of the same characters but Harley has white and Ivy has red. They really do reserve the green for the Joker. Maybe she’s his sexy secretary. “The Joker is having a psychotic break at the moment; he’ll see you in an hour. Thank you!”

      • KinoEye

        HAHAHA. Love it.

    • demidaemon

      Well, considering their story line, perhaps Katy is representing their lovechild.

  • I guess it does meet all the requirements for “appropriate dress to wear on TV talk show”: not too short (so it doesn’t ride up when you sit down), no embarrassing slits in the skirt, an eye-catching pattern or color (in this case, pattern AND color), and someplace black near the neck where a small microphone can be unobtrusively attached. I do hope someone backstage helped correct her makeup, though, which is pretty awful. The hair–yes, conflict in a bottle.

  • B_C_J

    From the waist up she looks fine. From the waist up it’s a total disaster.

  • That dress is doing the same thing to Katy’s boobs as the sports bra I’m wearing is doing to mine. Either way, it ain’t pretty, or comfortable.

  • Vicky

    That hair colour is unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and not in a good way.

  • Anna Vasquez

    “you should be standing behind the Joker, cheering him on as he lowers Batman into a vat of acid or something.”

    And calling him “Mr. J”?

    I have a new dream, and it is Katy Perry playing Harley Quinn.

  • That hair is some Oscar the Grouch realness.

    • The Counselor

      Jinx! (sort of)

  • Sarah

    Oh, my. Werq on lower half, Duct Tape Challenge on upper half. The hair, I could work with, but it really just doesn’t go with EVERYTHING – Sorry Katy.

  • Anne

    It’s such a bummer about that green thing (and the hair), because the rest of the dress fits her like a glove.

  • Danielle

    Are we back to wacky hair colors? Sigh.

  • MilaXX

    I actually never hated Katy’s crazy colored hair, but this shade of green is awful on her. I thik I could forgive the titscrepancy if the hair looked better.

    • The Counselor

      That hair is Oscar-the-Grouch green, and he’s one of the last Muppets I’d look to for hair color inspiration.

  • Jacob Bowen

    What’s the point of not coloring the first third of your hair??? Is this supposed to be cool, cause it looks like her roots are grown out.

    • Sarah

      It does sort of increase the illusion that this was a horrible chlorinated-pool accident.

      • didgerdoni

        Yup. Looks like that time I was spending too much time letting the ends of my bottle-blond hair dangle in the hot tub. Ah, youth.

      • Jacob Bowen

        This! It is TOTALLY the color my friend’a bleached hair turned the year they got a pool!

  • Louise Bryan

    That’s a chartreuse, and you needed more of a teal.

  • Sif

    did she get inspired by Kesha? girl, that’s not your hair!

  • LadyVimes

    The teal pleather hits at a very unfortunate point on her right breast (left to the viewer). Completely divides it in two. That works on a smaller-chested model, but Katy, dear, you have the ladies to think of.

  • H2

    Hate the hair! Full chested ladies need to remember that there are clothes that are not meant for us. If they can’t make the dress to fit her chest properly, she needs to find one that does. Everything other than the bodice and hair color is lovely.

  • xmixiex

    I’m a little in love with this dress.

  • teensmom99

    I see the problems and really hate that kind of titscrepancy when I’m trying on a dress, but somehow I like the way she looks. I mean, no one wants to be matchy matchy with their dress & hair color.

  • *crickets*

    The green hair is from Coachella. Also that dress was not designed for someone with boobs.

  • YoungSally

    She looks confused because she isn’t sure which Jimmy she will be talking to.

  • sweetlilvoice

    I think KP would love to be the Joker’s henchwoman! The black and white is lovely, the colored Reynolds wrap part is not.

  • formerlyAnon

    Despite it all, I kind of love this. If the hair had had the hard set and the sheen of hair in an old-style publicity photo, I think it would have worked, two-tone clashing color and all.

    Upon reflection, I really do love this, in an “her reach exceeds her grasp” way.

    • sagecreek

      Thanks! I thought I was alone!

  • decormaven

    I’m on board with almost everything but the hair. That’s some jello dye.

  • Vee

    The top of the dress design is nice, but if you have ample boobage, it’s not working. I would have liked the dress design with a different material that the plastic beach bag material used. Something with a little give would have looked nice. That hair, oh man that hair. LOVE the SHOES!

  • Lori

    Her hair looks like an unfortunate accident. Like the pool had way more chlorine than she thought or she’s somehow growing mold. If you want your hair to be a color not found in nature I’m fine with that, but it should look like you did it on purpose.

  • sagecreek

    I know I’m in a tiny minority, but I think she looks fresh and lovely. I like it when she tones down the kitsch.

  • marlie

    Titscrepancy asice, the dress is fine. But can we please talk about that cheap-looking, DIY dye job she has going on? The last time I saw a ‘do like that, it was on a high school kid going through a rebellious phase.

  • HeatherMcIlrath

    does she have……a fungal disease on her head?!?!

    katy….you are rich and famous. there is no excuse for green ombre hair.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Lets hope she gets that mildew under control before it makes it’s way to the top of her head….

  • Gatto Nero

    I like the dress, but she is mashed into that too-tight bodice. Ouch.
    The hair is just — awful.

  • stubbornthoughts

    That green hair clashes with my EYES. It’s atrocity is neither helped nor hindered by the green in the dress, it’s flat out awful.

    Her boobs make me sad here.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    I love the dress, but it is doing her figure no favors.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Did she dye her hair this color because it is Earth Day?

  • Little_Olive

    That is not a pretty dress, period.

  • msdamselfly

    I actually think she looks really cute. Love the way her hips look in that dress

  • TerryMarie

    Love the shoes, and admire the way she seems to be able to walk in them as easily as if they were flats.

  • snarkykitten

    I “rocked” that god awful hair in high school when my mother wouldn’t let me dye my roots. Looked awful on me, looks worse on her!

  • Miss wks

    The split pea soup hair….

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    The top of that dress is sad, sad, sad.

  • Ashleigh

    Green hair is NEVER a good idea. Ever.

  • kategs

    good lord that’s one ugly dress.

  • demidaemon

    That’s an F-ed up dress with F-ed up hair. Katy, I’m worried for you.

  • Akemi

    That hair is a DISASTUH.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Boob fighting aside, I think this is a great silhouette for Katy’s figure and I really like the dress. Perfect shoes with it. I don’t even mind her hair.

  • a_liking

    as a woman who has had blue/green hair for about two years now – that is the color most pretty shades fade to after a while. I don’t mind the color so much, but I know it’s not traditionally pretty. I wouldn’t mind it at all if it wasn’t for the roots and faded-bleached tops.
    now, why Katy Perry of all people can’t get an updated dye job is beyond me.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    Wait….people actually get **PAID** to “style” other people?? no kidding? wow.

    I am guessing Katy is hiring?

  • Morales Mike

    OMG. Arch-villain’s moll! TLo hit it ride on the head with that description, I could see it in my head!

  • Aunt Tabby

    Great skirt, duct tape bondage on top. I love the softer makeup on her though and I love that shade of green in her hair.

  • MarissaLG

    That hair seems like such a desperate attempt at seeming youthful. The internet says she’s 29, so she’s probably pushing 35 and the green hair is doing her no favors at all.

    Not to say someone her age couldn’t rock some manic panic because I don’t think that’s the case at all- but on her it just seems so joyless.

  • RM…Sometimes one justs needs to throw out a sketch or two.

  • is anyone else terrified she’s going to twist an ankle in these pictures?
