Dispelling the myth that she’s just a singer, Katy Perry is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend with Robyn set to take care of musical guest duties. If there’s one thing we’ve been waiting to see, it’s Miss Congeniality, aka Katy, do some straight-up acting. She’s already exhibited considerable comedic chops in her music video for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”, as well as high drama in the recent “The One That Got Away” in which she frolicked with one of Mexico’s finest thespian exports, Diego Luna. While we can’t wait to see the zany characters she will undoubtedly create, we also can’t wait to see what she’s going to wear for her opening monologue and in every single photo SNL shows of their guest host during the commercial break. The first set of promos alone showcase Katy in the CUTEST Victoria Beckham cat printed dress that we didn’t realize we wanted so badly until we saw it highlighting Katy’s razor bob.
In the promos, Katy and SNL cast member Kenan Thompson riff on everything from a trip to Mars to the spelling of Katy’s name. Kenan even asks her if her hubby, Russell Brand, has any hosting advice for her, to which she pulls a Brand-like accent and responds, “Talk like this and look like this and be a bit cheeky.” (Sigh, total ’dorbsness.) But this DRESS! Victoria Beckham’s collections have evolved into full-on covet status, and we have to put this Patch Pocket crepe de chine dress printed with plain white cats and red cats with white stars on our spring wish list. Also, are those matching earrings we spy? It’s all too much! Katy PURRY, indeed.
