Grammy Awards: Katy Perry In Valentino Couture


The Grammy’s were held last night in Los Angeles and as always I found the red carpet to be a little predictable – metallics, shimmering fabrics, tight, tight and a very tight, and the odd quirky look to showcase the musician on the red carpet.

One star I can generally depend on to wow me has to be Katy Perry, do you remember when she wore that gorgeous sky blue Elie Saab gown in 2012, well last night she was a vision in tulle wearing a stunning Valentino Couture gown that might look a little familiar, yep it is one that I featured on my Couture Bride post last week.

Other that the fact it was fresh off the runway, I love that it seemed to have been made for the Grammy Awards with the embroidered musical notes on the tulle skirt. It is fun, elegant and romantic all at the same time and it really does look like a work of art. Apparently this beautiful gown took 1,600 hours to do all the embroidery – the craftsmanship is sublime.

Not content with just one look from Valentino’s spring couture collection, Katy also looked incredible in a shorter red tulle with a feathered serpent to the after party. As much as I love the red carpet gown, and I do, I think this flirty number is my favourite – I love the rich colour of the dress and the snake motif. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!katy-perry-grammys-valentinoMadonna-ralph-lauren

Another great look I just had to share was Madonna wearing a wide-leg Ralph Lauren tuxedo with a black felt gaucho hat, a sparkly fingerless glove, and a grill, yep if you saw her interview on E! she showed off her mouth jewellery.

If I can forget about the grill, as I hate them, I love, love, love this mannish look from Madonna. I am a huge fan of girlies in suits and this one will be remembered I am sure. Also no-one else works the red carpet like Madonna!!!

Were you a fan of Katy Perry’s and Madonna’s looks at last night’s Grammy Awards?

American Music Awards: Katy Perry In Oscar de la Renta


Who: Katy Perry

Where: At the 2013 American Music Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A black strapless polka dot Oscar de la Renta sheer tulle gown, featuring embroidered flowers from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with Olympia Le-Tan ‘Webster’s New World Dictionary’ book clutch and a statement pink cocktail ring

Verdict: I love how Katy Perry can mix elegance with her quirky personality. This gown is gorgeous, I love the dots and floral appliqués, as well as the sheer tulle overlay to the skirt. But for me it is the styling that I love the most – from the Old Hollywood waves to her hair to the bold matte-red lippy, and most of all that spectacular Olympia Le-Tan box clutch.

I am a little bag/clutch obsessed and my wishlist is filled with these statement Olympia Le-Tan box clutches, they are whimsical, quirky, and gorgeously constructed – but at £1000 they are a little out of my price range, but they are pretty to look at and it is always nice to see them on the red carpet.

You can actually pick up Katy Perry’s ‘Webster’s New World Dictionary’ box clutch for £1749.51 via Farfetch – and I couldn’t resist picking out a few of my other favourites:

Cover Loving: Katy Perry Graces ELLE UK’s September Issue


I am a big fan of Katy Perry, more so now that I know that she counts Minnie Mouse as one of her style icons, and I was excited that she was to grace the September issue of ELLE UK - but then I saw the newsstand cover and I was a little underwhelmed, mainly because of the flamingo pose.

Don’t get me wrong, Katy looks amazing in a checked Dolce & Gabbana peplum top with matching shorts, and I understand that those Christian Louboutin boots are hot – but come on that pose really is more of an editorial shot than a cover pose for me.

I prefer the simplicity of the subscriber cover, which really shows off Katy’s beauty and her incredible eyes. Granted this cover does remind me a little of Emma Stone’s Vogue UK cover from last year – but I think Katy’s makes more of an impact as it is all about her face.

Shot by Mariano Vivanco, the accompanying editorial is just as strong with Katy wearing looks from Prada, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton and Alexander Wang’s autumn/winter 2013 collections.

The issue hits newsstands on Wednesday, July 31 and I can’t wait for my subscriber copy to drop through the letterbox.

Which cover do you prefer – the subscribers or the newsstand?

Cover Loving: Katy Perry Scores Her First US Vogue Cover


So the rumours were true, Katy Perry has finally been given her first US Vogue cover for the July issue, and she looks beautiful and ethereal in an off-the-shoulder embroidered floral dress, which looks to be Valentino but is actually Rodarte, teamed with a super bold red lippy.

The singer will be opening up about her love life in the accompanying interview, according to the cover lines, but as it doesn’t go online at Vogue.com until Tuesday, June 18, so we can only wonder if it will discuss her rumoured ‘blossoming friendship’ with Robert Pattinson.

Shot by Annie Leibovitz the cover really does show how photogenic Katy Perry is, she looks incredible and I think that is helped by the simple styling and her flawless make-up that really shows off her gorgeous porcelain skin.

I really do love it, but is anyone else thinking it looks a little like Rihanna’s cover last year, which was also shot by Annie Leibovitz?

If I wasn’t already wanting to buy to see more of Katy Perry – the clever peeps over at Vogue put ‘Rebooting Balenciaga – All Eyes On Alexander Wang’ as one of the other cover lines – I can’t wait to read that!!!

Are you pleased to see Katy Perry on her first Vogue cover?

MTV VMAs: Katy Perry In Vintage Elie Saab

Who: Katy Perry

Where: At the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards

Wearing: A vintage Elie Saab Haute Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2004 collection; the black gown featured sequinned floral embroidery in teal and fuchsia, and the black leather bodice was finished off with a bow accent

Verdict: I love, love, love Elie Saab and this is why, this dress is from the 2004 collection but totally fits the current romantic Gothic trend that is everywhere for autumn/winter, and Katy Perry looks incredible in it.

Last year, Katy was playful in a geisha style Atelier Versace mini dress, but this year she really did bring the glamour and I love this couture gown on her. Everything from the exquisite dress to her dark wavy locks and her flawless make-up makes this one of the best red carpets I have seen from Katy Perry.

I also love that even with her glamorous look Katy knows how to show off her quirky personality, just check out her very cool floral manicure, which featured sparkling crosses – now that is nail art!!!

What do you think of Katy’s look at last night’s MTV VMAs?

Cover Loving: Katy Perry Goes Orange For L’Officiel Paris

Wow, wow, wow. I say that not only because the cover is incredible, but I always love it when a magazine surprises me and makes me look twice, and I have to give it to L’Officiel Paris as they really made me look twice to see Katy Perry on their September issue.

This is Katy Perry’s second September cover, the popstar is also gracing ELLE US, however the two covers couldn’t be more different, her black and purple hair is out and instead L’Officiel Paris has turned her hair ginger. At first, second, and even third glance I have to be honest if it didn’t say it so on the cover I would never have believed this was Katy Perry. This look, kind of an ode to Grace Coddington, is so far away from what you expect from Katy, and that is why it so works.

Shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu, I adore the soft styling of Katy, the apricot and black Louis Vuitton dress from the pre-fall 2012 collection is divine with her ginger locks and rosy make-up, and the sneak peek of the inside editorial is just as strong, Katy looks incredible in this Gucci look and that mask is insane. I can’t wait to see more!!!

I am sure that this cover is going to split opinions, for me ginger has never been so hot, but what do you think of Katy’s latest cover?

Part of Me: Katy Perry In Dolce & Gabbana

Who: Katy Perry

Where: At the Rio De Janeiro premiere of her 3D docu-movie ‘Katy Perry: Part Of Me’

Wearing: A silver metallic long-sleeve floral lace Dolce & Gabbana gown with a flowing train, which was finished with a crystal embellished belt

Verdict: Wow, Katy Perry really surprised me in this gorgeous dress, this is high glamour at its very best and this gown shows off her incredible figure perfectly.

The dress itself is truly exquisite – everything from the metallic silver shade to the flowing train and the floral lace design – it is striking. What I am not sure about though is that superhero-style belt, I am not sure this delicate glamorous gown needed it.

I do love it when Katy goes for glamour, granted sometimes it doesn’t work, but on this occasion it really did.

Do you rate Katy’s look?
