Katy Perry performing at the Kids Inaugural Concert, and then at the inauguration ceremony.
We’re so into the way Katy Perry stans for President Obama. There are many celebs who will ride for our newly sworn-in Commander-In-Chief, but are any of them rocking custom latex ballot dresses and attending EVERY event of the inauguration? No, just Katy. Having closely followed her time on the president’s campaign trail we were eagerly awaiting Katy’s inaugural weekend looks, and were CRUSHED when more of them weren’t easily accessible to us online. Luckily, Vogue had our back, and linked up with Katy to publish her Inauguration weekend photo diary. Not only does it let us see candid shots of her custom stars and stripes bustier (which she designed HERSELF, along with stylist extraordinaire Johnny Wujek), but also her amazing Rodarte Inauguration ceremony coat, Oscar De La Renta performance dress, Dolce & Gabbana White House After-Party CAPE, AND her custom Kimmie Kyees patriotic nails. Ah-May-Zing. The photos really do make us feel like an insider, and of course possess that signature KP humor.
Katy started out the weekend in a custom Uncle Sam bustier, which she designed with Johnny Wujek. Paired with custom Kimmie Kyees nail art in both red white and blue stars AND a classic flag motif, the look was a great cap on her past patriotic ensembles for Obama event performances. The next day, Katy attended the swearing in of the President in an AMAZING Rodarte coat and Proenza Schouler heels, and made a nod to Aretha Franklin’s inauguration hat with her own teeny tiny version of the topper. The next night, Katy performed alongside Lady Gaga at the private White House Staff ball, wearing a canary yellow Oscar de la Renta Ball gown that she said made her feel like Beauty and the Beast’s “Belle.”
