Singer Katy Perry presents a ‘Star of Recognition’ to Capitol Records at Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles, California.
It took us a minute to recalibrate our settings, here. Just the idea of Katy Perry in a half-velvet jumpsuit with a giant flounce was enough for us to unsheathe our claws, but after a moment or two of staring, claws at the ready, no bitchy bon mots came forth. This is actually kind of cute and chic, no? It’s clearly a tough garment to pull off and maybe not even a very well-designed one, judging by the difficulties the model’s having in the look book picture. But the simple pumps, severe hair and gorgeous earrings appear to be the perfect styling choices for it, because we’re loving it more the longer we look at it on Katy. It’s different and eye-catching, but she and/or her team also managed to make it look chic and sophisticated.
