Foxtails nightclub in Hollywood
Aged 23 at the time, the pop-star-to-be had an affinity for candy coloured and fruit adorned accessories. The perfect notice-me tactic, no?

Zootopia 2008
Early on in her music career Katy focused on shock dressing for her fans and highlighting her (natural!) assets. This picture also illustrates her incredible playful nature and ability to make fun of herself.

The Vans Warped Tour 2008
Music festivals are often perceived as the ultimate opportunity to showcase one’s best style. Katy doesn’t miss a beat, donning a cropped top and high-waisted shorts (a summer 2010 trend). However with its Hawaiian print, Katy’s version seems to recall the ‘90s more than anything else.

ROK Vegas Nightclub opening in Las Vegas
You can always count on Katy to be consistent with her looks. Taking part in this Las Vegas event, she dressed the part in playing cards and a dice. Amazing!

MTV Video Music Awards
Adorable as ever, Katy’s album, Pinupisation, debuts. Consisting of a retro swimsuit and Lady Gaga worthy booty shorts, her look was worthy of all the stares it garnered. Shout out to the small butterfly holding her hair in place.

MTV 2008 Europe Music Awards
Perhaps not the most flattering camera angle, but the dress, designed by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, steals the show. The strategically positioned lash-adorned eyes draw all of the attention, making them the only thing you notice about the dress. We can’t help but love the Lego colour theme to boot!

MTV 2008 Europe Music Awards
This is one of our favourite wardrobe choices made by Katy: the carrousel dress. Undoubtedly cumbersome, this gem of a dress was created by Manish Arora and it’s simultaneously fun, colourful and flattering.

Performing at a New Year’s Eve party at The Paramount Mandatory
The Victorian corset meets French cancan feathers! The combo certainly makes for the ultimate New Year’s Eve outfit. If you’ve got the body, why not forgo pants altogether?

Myrtle Beach
In one of the rare instances that she’s covered from head to toe, Miss Perry shows she’s well versed in her attributes. A belted waistline is an easy way to look sexy without showing skin and the crinoline-lined circle skirt makes for an even smaller appearing waistline. The ultimate feminine and colourful combo!

Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City
The Met gala is the best venue for letting oneself go, as did Katy. She used the evening event as an opportunity to forgo her pinup, little-girl and kitty-cat sides in favour of her inner Cleopatra. Her hair, down to the dress’ neckline, and the stacked bracelets are the perfect accents for an out-of-Egypt look.

Performing at Capital 95.8 Summertime Ball 2009 in London
This is the kind of look we expect from Katy: colourful and short with an attention-garnering print! Not to mention the heart shaped glasses which look like they were made for her (sorry, Lolita!). Overall, it’s the perfect summertime look!

Performing on the Today Show in New York City
The pop star pulls off yet another Vegas themed look, this time with dice and sequins stealing the show. We could’ve done without the plastic bra strap, but there must have been a reason behind it!

Paris fashion week, Spring Summer 2010
In a rare move, the songstress opts to wear her natural curls. In a Castelbajac-designed Muppets dress, she sat front row at the designer’s show.

52nd annual GRAMMY Awards in Los Angeles
Katy Perry looked stunning arriving at the Staples Center in a Zac Posen dress. Lest you think she omitted her signature audacity for this look, think again: one false move, and it’s wardrobe–malfunction city! But Katy stayed cool as a cucumber all night.

The Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City
This now infamous CuteCircuit dress worn by Kate Perry definitely had everyone talking at this who’s who event. Why? Because it was lit up! Another ingenious attention-garnering strategy, turning oneself into a light fixture. The Lorraine Schwartz necklace and Louboutin heels helped balance out the look.

2010 MTV Movie Awards
The latest object of Katy Perry’s obsession? Wigs! This electric blue one has Katy glowing and manages to completely overshadow her dress, which in itself is amazing. A definite must-try on your next night out!

Performing at the world premiere of the Volkswagen New Compact Sedan 2011 in Times Square
After the wig, hair extensions up the ante on this new look. With a body like hers, a turquoise mini is completely wearable. But there’s no excuse for forgetting to wear underwear, Katy!

Performing at the Much Music Video Awards in Toronto
We were all surprisingly amused with her playful approach to accessorizing: Giant lollipops strategically placed over her breasts. But what we loved the most were the red and white striped Chanel boots—we want a pair!

Looks like we weren’t the only ones to fall head over heels for those Chanel boots. A gorgeous looking Katy wore them two days in a row in Toronto. This time her curly bangs catch our attention and her rockabilly edge trumps her pinup style. Well played, Katy!
