Whether she’s looking silly or sexy, when Katy Perry graces the red carpet or releases a new video, you can expect to be surprised. From hot-pink hair to Russell Brand-adorned nail art, the singer goes all out when it comes to her beauty effects. Here are some cool reasons we love her over-the-top style.
Switching between lavender and blue wigs, Katy sported a parade of pretty, feminine, and fun looks in her “California Gurls” video. Sofie U. sports the same sultry bubblegum eye shadow, blush, and lipstick combo.
For her Smurfs film premiere, Katy rimmed her lash line with sparkling blue eye shadow. Long, feathered lashes completed the cartoon-eye effect. Veronica M. tries out the bright, shimmering shadow on her lids and below her lower lashes for a dramatic statement eye.
Exotic and colorful, peacocks are the ideal inspiration for a truly wow effect (check out Natalie B.'s look). We love that Katy donned an electric costume on tour. To re-create the gorgeous bird’s unique pattern in your everyday life try wearing it on your nails, eyes, or even the ends of your hair.
Nobody rocks over-the-top nails better than Katy (well, maybe Becky H.!). From famous faces and places to outrageous bling, the singer switches up her polish so often it’s hard to keep up. We love that she shares her obsession over Twitter so we can enjoy her playful designs up close.
For her “Friday Night Out” video and at the Teen Choice Awards, Katy rocked a dork-inspired costume, complete with fake braces and oversized specs (just like Arabelle S.!). We love that the star is always game for a laugh and never takes herself too seriously.
