Katy Perry’s Sequined Dress Is Giving Us Deja Vu!

Katy Perry had a very busy weekend. Not only was the pop star named Billboard’s Woman Of The Year, she was also honored by The Trevor Project with their ’Trevor Hero Award.’The organization, which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention to LGBTQ teens, honored Perry for her outspokenness about suicide, and, according to the organization’s CEO, Abbe Land, because “she has done so much to empower youth.” Katy looked beautiful on the red carpet, in a sequined, light-beige Marchesa gown that hugged all over her envy-inducing curves while still being demure. When we first saw it, though, we got a weird feeling. “Have we seen this dress before?” we thought, and immediately began racking our brains for a similar style on the singer. Two dresses came to mind, and one in particular stuck out because of the also-similar beauty look she rocked with it. We’re talking, of course, of the one-shouldered number Katy wore to the premiere of then-husband Russell Brand’s film Arthur in April of 2011. Last year, Katy paired the gown, which featured more of a mermaid shape, a central, starburst sequined pattern and slightly less form-fitting construction, with super long, loose black waves and a center part. For The Trevor Project red carpet, Katy also kept her jet black mane loose, adding a crown braid to the slightly shorter, loosely curled look. There was another dress that was creeping into our brains as well, though. Check it out after the jump.

It’s a little eerie, isn’t it? While Katy’s blue wig sets her 2010 MTV Movie Awards dress apart from either we’ve already discussed, the similarity is striking. With long sleeves and an extremely body-con silhouette, the Zuhair Murad dress reminds us of Katy’s Marchesa in particular, with all-over sparkle and long sleeves. We can see why she keeps repeating the look, it looks fantastic on her, and it’s certainly interesting to see other designers’ take on the style.
