Katy Perry’s stunning Vogue cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz!

Katy Perry lands the July cover of Vogue, and she looks absolutely amazing, if you ask me. She’s wearing a gorgeous Rodarte dress, and the photos were shot by Annie Leibovitz.

Vogue has just released the interview along with some more beautiful pictures. Katy admits in the interview that she’s still in love with John Mayer, even though at the time they were broken up (and might still be, who knows these days).

Katy also, interestingly, talks about her divorce from Russell Brand. She confesses that Russell asked for their divorce via text message, which is such a d-bag thing to do.

Is being a celebrity overwhelming? “Of course I get fazed. And when I am in between records, sometimes I doubt myself. I’ll be like: Did I just get lucky, or did I mass-manipulate the world into thinking that seven songs were worth a number-one position? And then I go back into the studio and I start writing, and the true essential oil of who I am comes bubbling back up and reminds me that it’s always been inside of me, that nobody can take this away no matter what comment anyone makes. It’s going to be there because it’s what I was born with and it’s what I’ve worked on my whole life.”

Her childhood: The atmosphere at home, she says, was “not fun.” She told me, “My parents did not spare the rod. I wasn’t going to great schools, because my parents didn’t believe in public education. They wanted the education to be influenced by their religion, so I was going to these halfway education-slash-Christian schools that were like pop-up shop–style education. My father is hilarious. That’s where I get my sense of humor from. Sooo, he’s very funny and a practical joker, but he’s more emotional and driven. I mean, my mother is very emotional as well, but my dad is more of the guts of the family. He was the main preacher, so he kind of had this little Pentecostal flair, but they are born-again. So there’s a little bit of my background.”

Russell Brand in the beginning: “He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011. I mean, I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie.” Katy Perry: Part of Me, a documentary released last year that has garnered $32 million worldwide to date, covers the period before, during, and after her time with Brand. “That wasn’t edited to leave footage out–there wasn’t any footage of him.”

Get The Look: Katy Perry at the 2013 Grammy Awards


KATY PERRY ROCKS  THE RED CARPET AT THE 55TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS
Katy Perry stunned in an old Hollywood-inspired makeup look created for her by makeup artist Jake Bailey using products from Rimmel London. Perry was a nominee and a presenter at the Awards, which were held on Sunday evening, February 10th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

EYES:
Bailey defined Perry’s lash line with Rimmel London ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in black. Bailey then used Rimmel London’s Glam’Eyes Eyeshadow Trio in “Orion” to contour Perry’s eyes. Bailey highlighted Katy’s eyelid and brow bone with Rimmel London’s ScandalEyes Shadow Stick in “Bulletproof Beige,” and finished the eyes with a rich coat of Rimmel London’s ScandalEyes Mascara in Black.

FACE:
Bailey perfected Perry’s skin by mixing 1/3 Rimmel London BB Cream in Light with 2/3 Match Perfection Foundation in Nude to create a base. “The BB Cream sheers the foundation out and gives it a little glow,” said Bailey. Bailey then warmed Perry’s complexion with a dusting of Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish Soft Colour Mono Blush in “Pink Rose” on the apples of Perry’s cheeks.

LIPS:
Bailey completed the look by lining Perry’s lips with Rimmel London Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lipliner in Natural, and applying a coat of Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in “Crush.”

WHERE TO FIND IT: Rimmel London products are available at chain drug stores and mass retailers nationwide. Visit www.RimmelLondon.com for store locations and to try the newest products with Rimmel London’s exclusive Virtual Makeup Tool.

HAIR:
For Katy’s look, Renato was inspired by a 50s pin-up glam girl, with shiny, voluminous hair. To get her look, Renato first applied KMS California ADDVOLUME® styling foam to wet hair. Then, he blew it out using a large round brush to create volume. Next, Renato parted her hair down the middle and applied KMS California FREESHAPE® hot flex spray to ensure the style would last all night. Then, he used a 1 ½ inch curling iron to smooth the hair and create texture. To seal the look, Renato added a drop of KMS California SILKSHEEN® polishing serum. Renato really brought the pin-up girl to life with Katy’s gorgeous, shiny hair, spraying it with KMS California HAIRPLAY® dry touch-up for instant, weightless surface conditioning.

WHERE TO FIND IT: KMS® California hair care is available at salons nationwide.


NAILS:
Show stopping nails were the ultimate accessory. Superstar Katy Perry turned to celebrity manicurist, Kimmie Keyes, to complete her winning red carpet look. Kimmie brought her creation to life using the collections from the nail color authority, Sally Hansen.

Katy Perry was up for “Best Pop Solo Performance” for her hit song “Wide Awake.” To make a memorable, dreamy look, Kimmie used Complete Salon Manicure in Pink Pong on the nail and Gem Crush Nail Color in Big Money under the tips.

WHERE TO FIND IT: Sally Hansen products are available at chain drug stores and mass retailers nationally
