Great Gatsby! How to get Katy Perry's flapper girl look
Is Katy Perry on a one-woman mission to show the world she can do anything? It seems as though every time we've seen her this year she's changed her style dramatically - from flirty and pretty, to grunge and gothic, the 27-year-old has certainly been extra experimental!
Last night Katy bowled us over once more as she stepped out to party in a head-to-toe flapper girl outfit. The Fireworks singer, who was obviously feeling inspired by the 1920's looks seen over the SS12 catwalks, went all out in a long peach slip dress with lace and diamante detailing, which she teamed with a gorgeous pair of cream heels featuring some seriously glitzy embellishment. The vintage ensemble didn't end there either - Katy accessorised with a double row of pearls at the neck, drop diamond earrings, a beautiful beaded headband, and for some unfathomable reason, a colourful feather, which she carried down the red carpet. Perhaps the star felt she hadn't quite pegged the look without adding a little plumage? Who knows...
In true KP fashion, it wasn't just the outfit that received the 20's treatment; her hair and makeup both reflected the era. I've always thought that Katy does retro well, and the glamour of the 1920's definitely suits her. I love the way that her dramatic smoky eyes stand out against her pale skin and matte pink pout, and her purple hair looks at it's best set in soft waves.
With the Twenties influencing many of the summer trends, this is one look that is set to explode onto the high street and into your wardrobes - in fact you may have already spotted an influx of drop waists, heavy embellishment, and ultra glam accessories. When Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby (starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Carey Mulligan) hits cinema screens later in the year, we're expecting to see plenty of flapper inspired outfits on the red carpet and in the street.
