You already know that Katy Perry wears some exquisite Bob Mackie vintage costumes in her "Waking Up In Vegas" video, but I was wondering about that queen of hearts dress she wears in the wedding scene.
I assumed Katy Perry's playing card dress was the work of pop designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, who made the infamous coat of many teddy bears Madonna wears in the film Prêt-à-Porter. He also also sent a coat made of Kermit the Frogs down the runway during Fashion Week in Paris this past March.
But Katy Perry's (very Lady GaGa) playing card smock dress is actually a creation by British designer Ashish, and it's from his Spring/ Summer 2009 collection. Perhaps you can't tell in the "Waking Up In Vegas" video, but the card dress is made completely of sequins -- one of Ashish's trademarks. Want it? It'll set you back about $1,400. If you just beat the house at poker, get it at Selfridges, or via the Ashish site.
