KP took a break from her 124-show Prismatic Tour and made a pit stop in Rome in order to shoot the cover as well as film "a little cameo in a movie." She plays coy, but our guess is "Zoolander 2," which is being shot in the Eternal City. In addition to the behind-the-scenes video where Katy admits to having eaten pasta twice that day before dinner [Ed note: Yessss, girl -- I feel you!] and wanting a month to explore the Italian countryside, we also finally have access to all the photos from Katy's posh AF cover shoot.
Wearing—but what else?—a shimmering gold Moschino dress with the very appropriate "I had nothing to wear so I put on this expensive Moschino evening dress" text written on it.
She also wears a sheer lace dress while posing on a set of stairs at the St. Regis in Rome.
During her interview with the mag, Katy explains that she's proud to be her own boss and an entrepreneur, saying, "I don't want to shy away from it. I actually want to kind of grab it by the balls." And, LBR, what better way to do that than to wear a Moschino power suit with gold dollar signs all over it? That's right—no better way.
If there's one person who could own her success—and her style—on the cover of Forbes, it's clearly Katy.
