Katy Perry attended last night’s UNICEF Snowflake Ball wearing a shiny red halter dress and a carpet cape. This is Naeem Khan, by the way, and the entire outfit is a bit too much for even overly dramatic Katy to handle on a red carpet. The lighting is terrible here, so maybe the dress isn’t as bad as it appears in these photos. The color is very rich and gorgeous. Katy did change outfits (into a leopard-print dress that truly works) for her performance, and you can see that dress here.
Katy has just been named a goodwill ambassador for the organization, and she says the following about her first trip: “You know I was going through a transition in my life where I felt like I had been suppressed and emotionally toyed with – and like I went there, and I was like, I have nothing to compare my situation to.” Once again, everything comes back to her divorce from Russell Brand. Oh well. Katy plans to do one UNICEF trip per year, so some good will come of this. Kids love her.
Katy should have gone for a simple updo with this elaborate dress. Her makeup looks fine by Katy standards. I’m not sure what she doing with the “praying” hand gesture.
Angie Harmon let her hidden freak fly in this Angel Sanchez dress that exposed so much sideboob I thought I was looking at a lad mag. Whoa, Angie! It’s always the ones you least suspect, you know? From the front, this gown was deceptively demure with a ruffled bodice atop a flowing skirt. Then — bam! — major sideboob at an event geared towards humanitarian efforts for children. So wrong.
Christina Ricci is usually one of my favorites at any event, and she looked really great here from the waist up. There’s just too much going on here with the tri-colored bodice and a safari-print skirt. I would prefer the bodice and waist with a simpler skirt. Check out the close-up of her impeccable makeup.
Katie Couric looked fantastic in a gold dress with a mermaid train. Everything about her look is perfect.
