I’m all for Katy Perry’s fun personality and how she lets it show through her clothes, even though I’m sort of torn about her look at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards tonight.
Katy turned up on the hot pink carpet at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland wearing a sunglasses printed baby pink one-shouldered body-con mini dress from the Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
Katy paired the dress with a studded leather moto jacket (in the same shade of pink) along with white socks with a pair of platform saddle shoe ankle boots — from the same collection.
Even the platform is pink!
Her look played off her fuchsia-colored hair which was styled in a 1950’s pin-up look with rolled bangs.
There’s something so “Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael” meets Bettie Page meets Pinky Tuscadero about this.
That isn’t an insult, of course — there’s actually something I like very much about how she paired this all together. Besides, Katy use to do this with her hair a lot a long time ago; it’s not something I wasn’t prepared for.
This is cool. It’s fun. It’s Katy.
I would not have been surprised if she performed tonight in this, and I would have given it a thumbs up because it’s a cool get-up. I love her, I love her red carpet moments, and I was really looking forward to this. Thankfully it’s an MTV award show, and it’s common for artists to really play with their look.
I don’t expect them to show up as if they were going to the Oscars.
