There’s no one more adept at turning kitsch into a fashion moment than Katy Perry. With her love of bright colors, kooky patterns, and tongue-in-cheek design, Perry has always embraced the lighthearted humor fashion can deliver. During the promo for her latest album, Witness, Perry switched gears by adopting a new look focused on haute grandeur. Though her dramatic turns in couture labels like Maison Margiela and Stéphane Rolland were memorable, it’s always nice to see her go back to basics and choose something fun. Stepping out this morning for a trip to Good Morning America to plug her turn as host of the American Idolreboot, Perry chose a glittering combo from Christopher Kane that combined the best of both aesthetics. With its body conscious silhouette and metallic texture, the look was sexy, but the sleek overcoat and glossy ankle boots kept things sophisticated.
Switching into a rainbow paillette–covered dress from Attico post-show, Perry continued her pattern of upbeat fashions. Posing with cohosts Lionel Ritchie and Luke Bryan, she appeared in her element, embracing the piece’s sparkles and a pair of on-trend bubble glasses. Perry and her stylist Jamie Mizrahi have made a habit of infusing her looks with fun, and if today’s outfits are any indication, they have every intention of keeping the good times going.
