Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Katy Perry is Polka Dot Pleasant

[Welcome to Celebrity Chic on the Cheap, where our style guru takes a celebrity look and breaks it down for you, our poor college fashionista. What does that mean? It means that while the celebrities are spending $5,000 on an ensemble (even a lazy Saturday outfit), you don’t have to. All you have to do is click on the goods and – boom – you can buy the entire look. For cheap. Yes, we know – there is a spot for her in heaven.]

I don’t care for Katy Perry that much. I only like every other single that she releases, I think her taste in men is beyond questionable, and I thought it was highly ridiculous to claim that as a Christian, she was highly offended by Lady Gaga.

Yet, I cannot deny that I am completely fascinated by her style. She’s fearless, experimental, and not afraid to switch things up. She’s the only (non-Gaga) woman I can think of who is as comfortable wearing a bra made of cupcakes as she is dressed down and looking like Zooey Deschanel’s doppelganger. And I love that.

You know what else I love? This stunning polka dot number Katy recently sported on a stroll through London town. Gimme, gimme, gimme.

Dress, Brooch, Heels, Belt

I adore this look because I am completely infatuated with nearly any ensemble that could be construed as “vintage,” and a polka dot dress totally falls into that category. Dresses are my favorite item of clothing – they make you look polished and style-conscious, even if you just rolled out of bed 5 minutes and a Gatorade swish ago. A belt breaks up the pattern a bit and accentuates your waist. I absolutely love, love, LOVE the red brooch – it adds a bold flash of color and draws attention to the flirtatious-but-demure scoopneck of the dress. Heels add that extra bit of ferocity, but flats are just as acceptable., and if you’re in one of those lucky places where early September actually equals cooler weather, throw on a black, red, or white cardigan and you’re good to go!

    2. […] Katy Perry Granted she did get a couple nominations, but sadly Ms. Perry didn’t walk away with any moon men.  Putting aside the fact that I’ve been completely obsessed with Teenage Dream lately, I think she would have put on a great end-of-summer performance.  Maybe a cameo from Russell Brand as back-up dancer or a duet with Snoop to California Gurls… Would have been pretty amazing.
