If you were starting to worry that Katy Perry retired her weird and wacky ensembles for good after she wed funnyman Russell Brand back in October 2010, fear not. Even though Katy seemed to have ditched her outrageous fashion following her nuptials, we recently spotted her in an outfit that was so quintessentially Katy, we almost forgot about her demure phase.
On Thursday, June 30, Ms. Perry arrived on the red carpet at the Sears department store in Canada’s Toronto Eaton Center to promote her first fragrance, Purr – and she certainly dressed the part. We loved her adorable silk knit, knee-length frock and matching cardigan, all by Christian Dior, and think her Maison Michel cat ears added the purr-fect finishing touch. Even if you’re not into donning animal-inspired headpieces, we think Katy’s pretty party dress provided plenty of stylish inspiration – so keep reading for more details about her wild ensemble.
We concede that red carpet-ready cat ears aren’t for everyone, but for Katy, we think they’re quite cute. After all, her job is to bring attention to her fragrance, aptly called Purr, so it’s only appropriate that she pay homage to her own product. Her fierce feline headband even mimicked the silhouette of her adorable namesake fragrance bottle, so we think it was a pitch-perfect accessory.
Besides her cat ears, Katy also opted to accessorize her lilac Dior frock with amazing purple bow-front peep toe pumps by Miu Miu. Fortunately for style fiends, a similar shoe is super simple to DIY, even if your footwear budget isn’t funded by a consecutive string of hit singles. If you already have a favorite pair of simple platform pumps in your closet, elevate their style with affordable, bow-clad shoe clips, which you can find at your local Target or Payless.
What do you think of Katy’s fiercely feline ensemble? Would you dare to wear cat ears for a fun night out?
