Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have been together on-and-off since January of 2016, and never once have they made an official appearance as a couple. No awards ceremonies, no movie premieres. Personally, I believe getting caught by photographers doing water activities with a special guest appearance by Orlando’s trouser paddle is a more important relationship debut than any red carpet, but I don’t think that technically counts. The point is, Katy and Orlando finally did their celebrity couple civic duty by showing up to an event together.
Katy and Orlando appeared together last night at the Gala for the Global Ocean at the Opera of Monte-Carlo in Monaco. They were joined for photos by Prince Albert and Princess Charlene.
Katy and Orlando have had years to prepare for their big, official couple debut, and they clearly put a lot of thought into the outfits they chose to mark such an occasion. Orlando went with a look that says: “Gala at 6, audition for gritty movie role as East London club bouncer at 7.” I’m not sure what happened to Orlando Bloom, but he appears to have morphed from Legolas to the guy who threatened to beat up Legolas for his lunch money in high school. Meanwhile, Katy chose a look that combines the hair of a Supreme store employee, the dress of Liz Sweeney, and the arms of Dr. Claw from Inspector Gadget. I can practically see her walking in front of a mirror, shaking her fist and hissing “I’ll get you next time…” to her stylist.
