My style is all over the map: Katy Perry

The ever-so-stylish singer Katy Perry talks about her love for all things fash­ion­able, favourite stage out­fit and hol­i­day plans

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

If there is one mantra Katy Perry swears by, it is: ‘You wear the look, don’t let it wear you. It’s all about hav­ing con­fi­dence, which can help you pull off any­thing.” Known for her quirky, ex­per­i­men­tal fash­ion sense, the pop­u­lar Amer­i­can pop­star be­lieves in writ­ing her own fash­ion script. We have saluted her neon hair­colour phase. Be it Amer­i­can flag cape, graf­fiti-splat­tered gown or a flam­ing cos­tume, we have ap­plauded her fash­ion picks. The 31-year-old singer spills the beans about her style.

What’s style to you?

My style is all over the map. It’s usu­ally bright, colour­ful and funny. I like to shop from all over the world. I shop when I’m on tours, and wear pieces from all my travel. I don’t have to be be­holden to la­bels or big brands. I’ve al­ways had a vin­tage flair. I like to mix it.

What role does fash­ion play in your life?

It’s a way to ex­press my­self, and present my mes­sage or a song vis­ually. It’s a way to set a tone for who I am. Fun clothes make me feel happy.

Which is your favourite stage look?

My favourite one is from the Pris­matic World Tour (2014) — the smi­ley-face Moschino look as it’s full of per­son­al­ity. I really like all of them on their own, but if I had to pick one, that would be it.

Hol­i­day sea­son is al­most here. What are your plans for Christ­mas?

Christ­mas is syn­ony­mous with fam­ily time, loved ones and co­zi­ness. What­ever makes you cozy is Christ­mas. With new ad­di­tions in our fam­ily, we’re restart­ing our tra­di­tions now. We’re very ex­cited about Christ­mas. We’ll be telling my niece Stella about Santa very soon, and it will be fun to see how she be­lieves it.

Fes­tiv­i­ties are also about gift­ing. Which is the gift that is close to your heart?

The best gift I ever re­ceived was a faux-fur leop­ard coat from my mom when I was in sixth grade in Santa Bar­bara, Cal­i­for­nia. I had seen it in the win­dow of a vin­tage store. My mom got it for me for Christ­mas. She to­tally sur­prised me. I wore it in the 85 de­gree weather and got made fun of. But all the moms who were pick­ing up the kids from school thought it was very chic.

“It was a really cre­ative, imag­i­na­tive time. It was fun to be able to shoot some­thing so fes­tive,” says the singer, talk­ing about her re­cent pho­to­shoot and col­lab­o­ra­tion with a fash­ion la­bel.
