Steal Her Style: Katy Perry
Published 06/10/2010 | 14:53
Katy Perry has become a force to be reckoned with. Once deemed a wannabe and a "try-hard", her sassy attitude and unique style have slowly but surely made their mark. When it comes to fashion she’s the ultimate risk taker. Never one to follow trends, Miss Perry consistently outdoes herself in the wacky style stakes.
Her eveningwear choices consist of an array of slashed necklines, barely-there hems and tighter than tight dresses that show off her perfectly proportioned body.
With her fun sense of style, colour is never far from any of her outfits. As far as print is concerned the bolder the better; florals, tie-dye, polka dots and abstract... you name it she’s got it. You will see her in lots of satin, metallic, leather, pvc – pretty much anything that shines! She is a huge fan of London-based designer Ashish whose amazing sequinned creations she wears both on stage and on the red carpet.
While her onstage outfits are down right outrageous (who could forget the carousel dress), her offstage style carries just the right amount of mad. Her props include anything from umbrellas to headpieces with lots of pattern and detailing. Katy has fast become synonymous with the playsuit; day or night, onstage or off her old trustee is never far from reach.
Tips for getting Katy’s look:
Load on the sequins by the bucket
Play with colour and pattern
Use clean make-up but add an outrageous pop of colour on the lips
