Katy Perry's new look
You'll have had to be blind to have missed the most recent photos of Katy Perry that emerged recently of her dramatic transformation for Interview magazines latest issue. The look she seems to be channeling is quite 40s, quite dramatic but very feminine in a harsh sort of way. It got us at FashionistA thinking, how could we rock this sequinned 40s look too without being too in your face? We really didn't want to be too ott, but we really love a bit of sparkle! So we went about doing a little pre-Friday night shopping to try and find some gorgeous sequinned dresses, or 40's inspired shapes and styles. We popped into Topshop and saw this dress:
We loved this dress because it was rose gold tinted, which means it already channels that old vintage look but keeps it modern at the same time, as this is a huge current trend. We love this dress because it's very modern in style and shape - being a bodycon dress - but still maintains a lot of that vintage style. Of course it's no where near as extravagant as Katy's look, but come on, could we really pull that off as well as her?
We're going to finish our look with a slick of our Gel Eyeliner in Black which we know stays put all night, and will help us finish our 40's inspired cat eye look. Wing the end of the eyeliner out to complete the look and there you have it - a little bit of Katy Perry!
What do you think of this look? Would you be brave and wear a full on sequin dress?
