Katy Perry On Her Style Evolution: 'It's Less Cute And More Meow'

Posted on

When Katy Perry hits the boutiques, she prefers to roll without an entourage. “Typically, I like to shop alone–then it’s just about shopping, it’s about getting the job done,” the singer tells
in a behind-the-scenes video of her cover shoot for the magazine’s June issue. The pop star, who took a calculated fashion risk donning a light-up dress at the Met Gala earlier this week, says she’s also an island when it comes to style inspirations. “I’m not influenced by anyone else’s taste or ideas or trends…I know what looks good on my body,” she says of her personal style, which she developed on a shoestring budget growing up. “I was completely broke. I used to borrow outfits, get my makeup done at makeup counters, and then sneak into events. It was cool!” But the singer’s strong fashion sense doesn’t necessarily mean she’s stuck with just one look over the years. “I’ve gone from Betty Boop to more Bettie Page,” she explains of her current style. “It’s less cute and more meow.” But whatever her look of the moment, her songwriting and style sense go hand in hand, explains Perry. “Whenever I write a song, I look at to figure out what it would look like if it were a dress.” To hear more from Katy, pick up the latest issue of Lucky, on newsstands now, or visit –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley
