Get the Look: Katy Perry at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards

 

Katy Perry walked the red carpet looking what’s been dubbed “90′s goth glam.”  Celebrity makeup artist Todd Delano who created the look which featured classically lined and defined eyes, perfectly contoured cheeks and  bold, wine-colored lips.

Using exclusively Lancome products, Todd focused on Katy’s lips using Le Lipstique LipColouring Stick in Portelle as a base and topping it with  Rouge in Love Lipcolor in Fiery Attitude. For her face, Todd used the new Blush Subtil Palette in Nectar Lace (available in August) and finished with bolder eyes using the Color Design 5 Pan Palette in Taupe Craze for shadow, Liner Design Gel EyeLiner in Black Fishnets and Hypnôse Custom Volume Mascara in Black.

Katy Perry on her fashion choices: “I just want to take chances and have fun and truly live”

Katy Perry is Teen Vogue’s May cover girl. In the interview, Katy opens up about her new #1 hit “Part of Me”. She’s still sticking to the story that it’s not about Russell Brand, but I’m not buying it for a second.

She also talks about acting – and she reveals she was almost in ‘The Help’. Thank the Lord that didn’t happen! What a mess!

Here’s more:

Was she excited about her 7th #1? “Of course! I’m not like, “Ugh, number one again.” It’s funny, though–my label gets so caught up in the statistics, just because they’re excited. But for me, I don’t need to grind it into anyone’s head that I’m popular. If you like my music, great, and if you don’t, whatever. I’m going to keep making it either way. This does feel a bit like the record that never ends. But I wanted to release The Complete Confection for the hard-core fan who wants everything: three new songs, the remixes, and it’s all in a cute little package.”

On acting: “There was a time when I was going to be involved in The Help–just a small part, I wasn’t going to be Emma Stone or anything–but I couldn’t because the shooting schedule conflicted with the release of my record. And I was upset about that; I knew it was going to be an important film. Not that I need to do drama first, but I do want to do something that makes a strong impression. You don’t really get off the hook being a musician first … I feel like the stakes are really high.”

On glamour: “I don’t like to take fashion too seriously. I love it, and I am so grateful when big brands want to associate with me, but mostly I just want to take chances and have fun and truly live. And sometimes that means wearing some ridiculous, cat-inspired outfit rather than whatever happens to be in this season.”

Her style influences: “I love Agyness Deyn, Chloë Sevigny, Daphne Guinness, Natalie Wood, Judy Jetson, and Wonder Woman. They have the ability to adapt and evolve and change. Like, I’m still doing the pinup thing, but now when I do it, I want to be the pinup of the future, like Rachael in Blade Runner. But I’ve always been quirky–it probably started when I was nine years old, and my father used to wake me up at seven every Saturday morning to take me to garage sales. I couldn’t afford the clothes that the other girls at school were wearing, so instead I looked for things that were unique to me.”

On fame: “I’m tired of being famous already! But I’m not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do. It’s quite a delicate creature– it’s a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you. I still want to be as approachable and relatable as possible–when I meet fans and they’re crying, I’ll say, ‘Calm down, there’s nothing to cry about. I’m not going to bite you or attack you or grant you three wishes. Let’s just hang out and have a good time.’ But really, I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago. If you try to be everything to everyone, you’ll only end up completely confused.”

I kind of love the statement she made about fame: “Calm down, there’s nothing to cry about. I’m not going to bite you or attack you or grant you three wishes. Let’s just hang out and have a good time.”

I love her look in these pictures. Even with the blue hair, she really is spectacularly beautiful!
