COVER: KATY PERRY BY CUNEYT AKEROGLU, L’OFFICIEL PARIS, SEPTEMBER 2012
Posted on August 30, 2012
Yes you read right, THAT is Katy Perry! You would be forgive for thinking this flame haired beauty in Louis Vuitton was a Florence Welch/Rooney Mara hybrid from a distance, the heavy retouching is to blame for that, however I actually really like it! *Gasp*
Maybe it’s the fact it looks nothing like her, so I don’t see Katy Perry or the fact that we are so used to seeing the singer pairing the most abysmal coloured hair with beautiful runway outfits that seeing her look relatively “chic” is a breath of fresh
Check out the beautiful editorial shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu, (pure coincidence this is my third post on him within a day), here.
Absolutely adore the images of her in McQ, Zuhair Murad and that PVC Jil Sander gown! she really does look phenomenal and Vanessa Bellugeon has done a great job pulling all the looks together. The red hair and this style of make-up is definitely her thing. Sadly it doesn’t really fit with the “Katy Perry” brand, so I very much doubt we will see her sporting this look anytime soon!
