Looking like a 1920s silver screen siren, Katy Perry sexes up the cover of Vanity Fair’s June 2011 issue. The usually multicolored “Firework” singer toned it down for the magazine’s photo shoot, which was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. Katy appears glam and sultry in a short black bob, red lips, and a nude (and very talented) bodysuit. She almost looks like a hot antique gilded floor lamp, and we mean that in the best way possible. (You’re welcome for your new pickup line, BTW.)
Inside the issue, Katy opens up about her religious upbringing, her marriage to Russell Brand and what it takes to make Katy Perry Katy Perry. “It takes a village to make me who I am… You don’t have to wake up looking like, you know, Gisele,” Katy says.
We hear you, Katy, but it’s not like your hair and makeup people are exactly working with the Elephant Man or anything. You’ve got a pretty good blank canvas, and we love it when it’s stripped down like this. More, please!
