Katy Perry wears a classic Man Ray image: tacky or cute?


These are some new photos of Katy Perry at last night’s Logie Awards in Australia. She wore this odd green dress with some kind of screenprint of Man Ray’s photograph “Le Violon d’Ingres” (Ingres’s Violin). The combo of the green puffy sleeves, the screenprint and the bright blue shoes is all rather… eh. Katy thinks that this her signature, wearing bright colors and this kind of junk. It gets kind of boring to me.


In other Katy news, she’s suing an Australian tabloid who recently claimed that she was screwing around on husband Russell Brand. The alleged other man? Producer Benny Blanco. According to the Australian tabloid NW, Katy was having an “intimate relationship” with Benny. Katy is suing the NW’s publisher, AP, with a statement saying: “By reason of the publication of the article, the plaintiff (Perry) has been gravely injured in her reputation and feelings (and) has suffered distress, embarrassment and humiliation.” Katy also says that NW has refused to apologize for the story “although it was clearly inaccurate”. She could win six figures! Yeah, which publication has Katy screwing around on Russell? I thought most people had money on Russell screwing around on Katy…?

Below are photos from Katy’s recent perfume launch. I don’t care for this dress either. Bitch needs a new look.

    I’m just impressed her boobs are covered.

  2. Photo JoJo says:

    The purple is kind of cute. The other, not so much. It doesn’t help that the dress is bunching/riding up and making the screen print look all jacked up.

  3. Emily says:

    Oh god, on the radio this morning I heard the live version of Firework she sang at the Logies. A cat in heat has a more soothing, in-tune voice than her.

  4. Ashley says:

    That green gress is awful and should be burned. She needs bangs. Her face is too big and looks like it was painted on an egg.

  5. LisaMarie says:

    Bitch needs to cut down on the makeup. I know we come down hard on christina aguilara around here for troweling it on, and katy perry is just as bad!

  6. Caz says:

    The Logies are an incredibly tacky, self-promoting “awards” event put on by a really tacky Aus magazine. I’m Australian and can safely say it’s a lot of rubbish. Katy Perry’s performance was an absolute highlight. Yes the green dress is rather bad. At least she has personality and isn’t bland like so many other celebs.

  7. Quest says:

    She tries to hard and keeps failing at it. Sorry

  8. Lois says:

    Want her shoes from both sets of pictures :)
    Apart from that, meh.

  9. JaisyMaisy says:

    @Ashley…EXACTLY! You nailed it! BRAVO!

  10. Bodhi says:

    I’m telling you, its going to be Katy that cheats on Russell, not the other way around.

    This is, of course, just my humble opinion, but I think that he is WAY more into the relationship than she is. Hes done all of his wild oat sowing & really wants to settle down. She is still really young & wants to go out & party with her friends & this hot little thing.

  11. Deven says:

    Have never understood her appeal. She does have too big a face…and too big everything. She seems to only feel like herself if she’s dressed as a cartoon. If only cutting bangs would fix her!

  12. Jacq says:

    Her boobs look like they’ve let some air out & the violin lady’s butt-crack looks like it is misrepresentative of her chocha-region. NOT flattering.

  13. EUGENE says:

    i´m between tacky or hideous!

  14. RHONYC says:

    #1. green dress is kinda dope. i likes it.

    #2. the pic of her holding the perfume is funny. it’s like she can’t believe she’s actually shilling her own perfume. :lol:

  15. MSat says:

    She is a beautiful girl who seems hell bent on looking like a circus clown. Why??

  16. S says:

    The first dress is actually kind of awesome in a way, but the shoes and tights just ruin it. Maybe if she’d ditched the tights and replaced the heels with the ones she wore to the launch instead?

  17. Brandy says:

    I find the purple and black dress far more tragic. I mean, if there’s one thing that Katy has, it’s a killer body. Yet somehow this purple number managed to completely dump-ify everything above the knee. Boobs are flattened and her waistline is completely obliterated. Truly proof that skinny belts suit no one. Makes me rethink shift dresses, too.

  18. stephanie says:

    green dress is awful.

  19. Ellie says:

    She looks like an idiot as always.

    @Ashley“That green gress is awful and should be burned. She needs bangs. Her face is too big and looks like it was painted on an egg.”

    LOL. That just killed me for some reason… A very effective comparison to her face. I don’t know what’s happening with celebs lately, they’ve started looking ‘possessed’ in pictures…

  21. Jess says:

    She looks SO MUCH like Zooey Deschanel! How are they not sisters? Check out this side-by-side:

  22. original kate says:

    it would be a cute t-shirt but as a dress it’s just dumb.

  23. Bodhi says:

    Ugh, Katy WISHES she looked like Zooey!

  24. jover says:

    Ah, the look in her eyes – no one’s home; and her “music” is awful. Whatever happened to demanding more from our “stars” than overpromoted mediocrity?

  25. Newbie says:

    I was expecting it to be a really cool outfit with the print on it. But it’s terrible. It looks backward and dumpy.

  26. Ari says:

    The green dress would be off the chain considering how awesomely slimming it is with the offset of the puffy shoulders if it was all in one color. WTF KATY

  27. galaxy.girl says:

    Not a fan of the crack image ah my eyes!

    Has anyone smelled the Purrrfume yet? I am very curious about it, the kitty is so cute :D

  28. bagladey says:

    That green dress is tacky AND boring, and the purple dress looks home made.

  29. Cherry Rose says:

    Wow. That hairstyle she has while wearing that purple dress. Pulling back her hair does her no favors. It’s all so thin upfront that it looks horrible, like she’s losing her hair.

    And the green dress? Blech.

  30. loveyourwork says:

    Her face is too big and looks like it was painted on an egg.

    holy SHIT that made me laugh!!! made my day all sorts of WINNING!!!

  31. Hakura says:

    @Galaxy.Girl“Has anyone smelled the Purrrfume yet? I am very curious about it, the kitty is so cute.”

    I actually like it =) But you have to be careful not to use too much, as it can be a bit strong. (a musky scent that could become overwhelming if not careful.)

    I really like the cat-bottle too… I’m sort of surprised that ‘Baby Phat’ never used that idea for their perfume bottles.

  32. Nikki says:

    Trying too hard, as always. Over it.

  33. Magsy says:

    She’s cute, not the best singer and her choice of Russell Brand baffles me. I guess trying to get back at her parents. Unless he’s totally a lovely man.

  34. Paige says:

    the purple dress would be fine in another fabric – it looks like its made of foam!

  35. john says:

    man, i don’t care what y’all say. wearin’ a man ray on your clothes is Cool
