The unveiling of the big September issues is in full force and the latest comes from US ELLE. As previously reported, Katy Perry covers the issue shot by the magazine's long time collaborator, Carter Smith.
Aside from their recent Selena Gomez cover, I haven't been all too impressed by the magazine's covers this year but this one is good and will no doubt go down well with the singer's fans. When she covered their March issue she boosted circulation numbers by a reported 18 per cent and considering all the press surrounding her at the moment, what with her film and the finalisation of her divorce with Russell Brand, there is no doubt that this will be another strong one.
When Katy Perry hits the red carpet you never quite know what to expect. As much as she does deliver the goods and come out with interesting looks, she does have a tendency to go down the gimmicky route too.
While the red carpet at the European premiere of her film 'Katy Perry: Part of Me' was lined her usual candy and ice-cream displays, her outfit last night was actually on the tame side. For the occassion she opted for intricately embroidered Fall 2012 Marchesa dress teamed with matching gold strappy sandals and it worked. The only thing that let the look down was the dark and heavy-handed make-up and serious up-do.
Perry's editorials can be a bit and hit and miss but this, along with her recent Interview cover, is definitely one of my favourites and she pulls the styling off perfectly. In the accompanying editorial, the 27 year-old talks about being inspired by Madonna, being pleased that President Obama is supporting same sex marriage and explains where her style comes from.
I wasn't a fan of Katy Perry's flapper-style outfit that she wore last week but at the 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto last night, she took a step in the right direction.
While the dress makes me think that she's going to fly away superwoman-style any minute, it works for her and the fact that she opted to wear Vawk, a young Canadian brand, rather than a big label at the event should definitely been applauded.
I've really liked Katy Perry's most recent looks. Rather than going down her usual gimmicky route, her latest outfits have actually made sense. Sadly, though, this week she slipped back into her old ways.
To attend the City of Hope's honors earlier on this week she wore a vintage Nolan Miller silk slip dress, a vintage style headband, 20's waves and long pearls too. While the flapper trend is admittedly big for S/S12, the look is far too literal that it looks costumey.
All eyes may have been on the red carpet at Cannes over the weekend but a big event took place in Las Vegas too last night, as it played host to the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.
While the red carpet looks didn't quite match up to what we saw in Cannes, the looks were actually pretty good. Taylor Swift sported a red Elie Saab gown, Julianne Hough looked incredible in a silver Kaufman Franco creation and Miley Cyrus had everyone talking in this Jean Paul Gaultier double breasted mini dress.
With all of the changes going on at America's Next Top Model I had a suspicion that they would drag it out to capitalise on the press but it looks like I was wrong. Today the show's producers confirmed the new members of the team.
According to reports, male model Rob Evans will replace Nigel Barker as a permanent judge on the panel and celebrity stylist Johnny Wujeck will replace Jay Manuel as the creative director of the shoots. The appointments are a bit of a surprise. Evans has appeared in magazines ranging from V magazine to i-D but is still relatively unknown and despite styling Katy Perry, the same is true of Wujeck.
Katy Perry's red carpet looks can be a hit and miss. You can never be quite sure what to expect. One day she's wearing a smurf dress and the next she's in an elegant Elie Saab Couture creation.
Yesterday was a good day though as she stepped out at the ASCAP Awards. She looks effortless and romantic in this ivory embroidered S/S12 Temperley London dress and her new purple locks work a lot better than the blue she was sporting at fashion week.
I've never been the biggest fan of Katy Perry's style nor have I been particularly crazy about her magazine spreads but her latest offering is differnt.
The singer looks unrecognisable on the cover of Interview's March issue but it works. Details about the cover and images from the full shoot and the accompanying editorial are yet to be released but what do you think of the cover? Are you as pleasantly surprised as I am?
