How To: Katy Perry Look

She’s the California girl who loves waking up in Vegas and kissed a girl. But what’s so zingy about her that has the world hooked?

Katy Perry, the 30-year-old pop star has completely wooed the world with her singing talent, racy lyrics and a style that’s over-the-top and truly unique. Glitter, fishnets, bustiers or bloomer shorts, there isn’t much this fearless fashionista won’t try. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, she sure has pushed the boundaries of what’s considered fashionable. We decode her quirky style and love for perky make-up.

Make-do Fashion

Katy Perry’s outlandish fashion style has a history. She adopted her wardrobe quirks after her dad dragged her to garage sales to buy second-hand clothes as a kid. Since she couldn’t afford clothes other girls at school were wearing, she started looking for things that were unique to her. Thus was born a style diva who could pull off a series of looks including a PVC bondage gear or 1950s pin-up girl. Katy’s inspirations ranged from Clueless in the 90’s to Madonna, a young Gwen Stefani and Courtney Love. Currently she has been known to idolise burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, models Agyness Deyn, Natalia Vodianova, and Icelandic singer-songwriter Bjork. Her take of fashion is best described by a quote in a recent interview “I don’t like to take fashion too seriously. I just want to take chances and have fun and truly live. Sometimes that means wearing some ridiculous, cat-inspired outfit rather than whatever happens to be in this season.” No wonder every leading label on the planet wants to associate with this popstar.

Zany Style

So what constitutes Katy Perry’s wardrobe? Everything that’s cute, girly vintage and takes you back to 1950’s and 60’s. High-waisted shorts, skirts, polka dots, cropped tops, strapless numbers, shimmery, glittery, bedazzled tops, halters, slinky spaghetti and sweetheart necklines are her thing. Of course her love for bright fruity and neon colours goes without saying.  Her vibe for a formal look would be dresses that are short and sparkly or floor length that are wispy and ethereal with layers of silk charmeuse. Frilly hemline and flirty and feminine enhancements are common for her on the red carpet. Best part, Perry has curves in all the right places so she can pull off what can be a fashion disaster for most women.

Beauty Icon

At Fab Bag, we love celebs that aren’t afraid to experiment with their hair and make-up. Katy Perry is big on hair accessories which totally perfects her retro vibe. She is rarely seen without a hat, headband, oversized flower, or even fruit in her perfectly coifed hair. She does it right with one large accessory perfectly nestled atop a nest of curls or pins back her lustrous mane just behind one ear. Lips painted bubble-gum or cherry red, false eyelashes, questionable eye shadow or just plain old Hollywood glamour, Katy can rock a variety of looks even if it involves donning a neon hued wig.

So full points to Katy Perry for originality. She’s an inspiration to us for being confident and finding your personal style.
