Vintage Spotting: Katy Perry Gives Us a Flapper Moment

Written by emilyc

Katy Perry is giving me so much 1920s right now. How could she allow herself to lapse into this unfortunate slip dress that does anything but flatter at theΒ City of Hope’s Music and Entertainment Industry Group party in LA? To me, this ensemble says, “I’m still sad about Russell,” or, “Tonight, I think I’ll channel Grandmother Perry.” The event was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Β so Katy most likely reasoned that her usual hyper-contemporary look wouldn’t allow her to stand out against the art like a drab, outdated number would. If that was the case, then mission accomplished!
