At least now I know what it would look like if Duchess Ravenwaves ran into Maiden Goldenwaves behind Castle Lovelylocks and whooped a trick for her dress (fuck you, television god, for cancelling Lady Lovely Locks before we got a gritty teen-years spin-off).
You can always count on Katy Perry to bring high-ish class style and outlet mall glamour to any event, and last night was no exception. Katy showed up to a Grammy after-party looking like a near-flawless Diamonelle™ shimmering under the fluorescent lights at an indoor swap meet. If Duchess Kate’s wedding dress set the trend in bridal gowns for 2013, then I predict 2014’s brides will be ripping weaves and busting noses at a David’s Bridal warehouse sale over Katy’s modestly exquisite throwback to the sequined butterfly halter top. Sorry, did I say brides? I meant to say the cast of the 6th season of Drag Race.
And even though I think she looks like a cheap pillow from Target, that dress still looks 1000x better than the cheesy sheet music-covered one she arrived in. That dress gets a thumbs down from everyone but that one girl you know with a treble clef tattoo on her ankle (and her vote doesn’t count because she has a treble clef tattoo on her ankle).
Here’s more of Katy and her God presents, Cyndi Lauper in a cape (take notes, everyone), the January Jones of the music world – Iggy Azalea (can someone explain why her face looks like an airbrushed t-shirt portrait?), Ashanti (something to think about: we live in a world where Ashanti’s invite to the Grammy’s is more questionable than Tamar Braxton’s), and some very fancy dresses that will make your best lounge pants retreat to the bathroom and cry in shame.
