Katy Perry has played all of the biggest stages in the world, has performed for the President, and a whole host of other things that would make us quake in our boots with terror, but we’d be willing to wager that she still gets a touch butterflies before a REALLY big show. OK so maybe she has her game face down pat (there wasn’t a hint of stage fright in her pre-show ritual as shown in her Part Of Me doc), but singing a duet with the Rolling Stones? If Katy didn’t get a little nervous, she might just be a robot. The singer joined Mick and Keith on stage at their Las Vegas tour stop, and brought that rock star somethin’ somethin’ in an all-leather bustier and mini skirt combo. Holding her own singing the Stones’ classic “Beast Of Burden,” Katy’s down-to-there sweetheart neckline bustier, with thick ties up the front, and a bright print on the skirt, was classic KP, with a definite old school rock twist.
And we haven’t even started on the BOOTS. What better to go with an all-leather look but a pair of major OTK stunners, reaching mid-thigh and giving off some serious Sunset Boulevard, Viper Room vibes? Accessorized with a spiked necklace (that gracefully toes the line into choker territory) just grazing Katy’s collarbone, and loose, big waves, the look was commanding but also appropriate given the venue (Vegas) and the company (rockstars). If only we could be so fearless.
What do you think of Katy Perry’s “Beast of Burden” look?
