The 2015 Video Music Awards are in mere days, you guys. While we are eagerly anticipating Miley Cyrus as our host for the evening, we are filling our days until the big event with fashion of VMAs past.
Next up is Katy Perry, who has worn 14 different looks in her seven VMA appearances. From satin rompers to denim dresses, Katy has really run the gamut at the VMAs—see ’em all for yourself!
This marked Katy Perry’s first time at the VMAs. She was still very into her pin-up phase and opted for satin hotpants and bustier.Getty Images
Even as a first-timer, Katy knew multiple outfits were necessary to make an impression. She changed into a second satin bodysuit when she hit the stage between main stage performances. Katy’s love for food-themed clothing is apparent, even this early in her career.
In 2009, Katy went a touch more glam. Dressed in head-to-toe silver from The Blonds, Katy showed that she could pull off both couture and costumes.Getty Images
For her performance with Joe Perry, Katy erred on the costume side, in a heavily embellished corset, white spandex, and thigh-high boots.
While she had demonstrated for two years in a row her ability to nail multiple VMA looks, Katy went all-in on one look in 2010. In a sheer Marchesa dress, Katy introduced us to her affinity for technicolor hair with pink, purple, and blue highlights.
The following year, however, was a different story. Katy wore not one but four different outfits. There was her Asian-inspired Atelier Versace and parasol.Getty Images

Later in the show, Katy didn’t let her pink hair stop her from wearing an eggplant Tom Ford gown—the lady loves colors and isn’t afraid to show it.Getty Images
And finally, to celebrate her Michael Jackson-record-tying five singles from one album—Teenage Dream, of course—Katy’s stylist Johnny Wujek created this sparkling record dress and matching headpiece. Four outfits, one night, NBD.
The following year, Katy was subdued, especially compared to 2011. She wore a black Elie Saab gown and returned to her dark hair. It was the first time she had worn a full-length gown on a VMA red carpet, and she 100% made it #WERK.Getty Images
While sitting next to Rihanna in the crowd, Katy changed into an embellished (and long-sleeved!) Emilio Pucci dress and equally bedazzled Louboutin heels.

For her performance under the Brooklyn Bridge, Katy went hardcore athletic, changing into an equally animal-centric top, flaming boxing shorts, and tube socks.
We hate to pick favorites, but man, her all-denim-everything Versace recreation of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s iconic 2001 look has to top our Katy Perry VMA outfit list. Not only did she and Riff Raff pay homage to one of the most memorable red carpet fashion moments of all time, but KP also did an incredible job nailing every last denim detail. QWEEN.
