Love or Loathe: Katy Perry’s Cape

This nippy time of year, what to wear over your cocktail dress is always a conundrum. Rick Owens moto-jacket? A sleek DVF silver trench? A posh pashmina? Well Katy Perry seems to have found a brand new outerwear option: a cape.

That’s right minions, K.Per looked like a caped crusader at last night’s UNICEF Snowflake Ball in NYC, and I can’t quite decide how I feel about her ultra odd outfit:

The look was courtesy of Naeem Khan, and strangely, I rather like the cape–it’s the dress which I have my doubts about. A velvet halter dress isn’t easy for anyone to pull off, and the center seam makes her look shapeless, not to mention the hem is too long. But, her makeup is flawless and accentuates the look perfectly, as does her sleek unfussy hair.

Later in the eve KP changed into a silvery number to sing (off-key, BTW) “Roar,” “Firework,” and “Unconditionally,” which was apparently inspired by her UNICEF trip to Madagascar earlier this year.

What’s your take on the cape and dress ensemble? Is it a wintery win or seriously strange?

    It’s usual for Katy to wear something like this. I think she’s trying to be unique because Lady GaGa over does it and Katy thinks she can always show her up at everything because apparently what’s less is sometimes more.

  2. Stella Said:

    I love/adore the cape! But that dress is just something else. The hem/line down the middle is just tacky.

  3. Lea Said:

    LOATHE IT. Dress hideously and can’t sing.

  4. Kati Farkas Said:

    Loved the cape concept! Switch the fabrics, so the cape is pure red velvet and the dress is gold and red, and it works. Don’t say it looks too much like Red Riding Hood, because Katy can pull it off.

    I love Kate!! She’s just trying to be creative, and its just a dress. Both love the cape, and the dress. And its a wintery win, and a strange win.
