Katy Perry, Drag Queen

Posted on August 29, 2011

You guys, Katy Perry… she’s a national treasure; a gift from God to gay fashion bloggers like us. Just look at the smorgasbord of crack she laid out for us last night:

Vintage bath mat Chinoiserie. Genius. Excellent use of props.

By the way, the “you shouldn’t match your outfit to your hair” rule gets tossed when your hair is pink. For future reference.

Surprisingly understated in a “purple sheer and lace dress with pink velvet belt to match your pink hair” kind of way. In other words, this is understated for Katy Perry. It would probably get you arrested.

But admit it: wouldn’t you love to show up wearing this on the day you tell your boss to take this job and shove it? Would this not make a perfect “Fuck all y’all, I’m out of here” look? Sure, it’ll make your ass look huge, but once you commit to wearing a cube on your head, traditional notions of “flattering” no longer apply.

All drag queens know the value of self-promotion. Not that there was ever a danger of anyone NOT realizing this is Katy Perry, but we appreciate the superhero-like commitment to wearing your name on the front of your clothes.
