When you think about crazy outfits in the music world it’s impossible not to remember Madonna in the 90s or, in the last few years, Lady Gaga or Nicki Minaj. However, there’s one sweet performer who is just as innovative as they are, but in a different way. We are talking about Katy Perry, of course, whose looks are eccentric, sexy and thematic. At her shows, Perry loves costumes and irreverent fantasies. It’s impossible not to love the colorful carousel dress that she wore in 2008. At another party at Madison Square Garden, Katy wore a soldier costume and she even had a hat. And at the WMAs in 2011, one of the looks of the singer was music-inspired, with a dress made of CDs and DVDs.
At the beginning of her career, between 2007 and 2009, Katy Perry was known for her pin-up style, based on the 40s and 50s fashion with colorful and sassy garments. However, in an interview she revealed that her style was inspired in the main character of the 1962 movie directed by Stanley Kubrick, entitled “Lolita”. Since 2010, the singer has changed her style a bit, starting to wear more daring outfits, like short dresses and clothes made of shiny latex.
She was considered “The Sexiest Woman in the World” in 2010 by the magazine Maxim. In an interview to that publication, the singer said that she believed that people already know that she wasn’t “only sexy a little girl”. She added: “I have more to say. I’m trying to give people soundtrack to their lives, songs that express a keg of emotions”. This and other successes helped her get the title of “New Queen of Pop”, granted by the Billboard magazine, in the United States. But is she really? Well, we have so many queens and princesses of pop in our latest infographic that it’s really your choice. And all of them are super well dressed!
