While most people break out their winter coats when December rolls around, Katy Perry unleashes pieces from her cape collection. Last night, the “Roar” songstress attended the Unicef Snowflake Ball in a deep red dress by Naeem Khan. As we were admiring her gold-embroidered cape and applauding her for pulling off such a difficult style, we were like, “HOLD UP. Are we having déjà vu?” Upon further research, we realized that Katy not only wore a cape to the same event last year, but she again wore a similarly haltered dress by Naeem Khan. Maybe the Snowflake Ball invite suggests capes, and she’s the only one following directions?
In 2012, Katy opted for a navy-mesh brocade gown, which she paired with a sheer cape. She changed her hair and makeup game a bit this year, opting for a rich mauve tone and matching nails. And while last year she accessorized with 45-carat sapphire and diamond earrings by Lorraine Schwartz, a geometric cuff, and a satin clutch, this time she kept it simple: small pearl earrings, one ring, no bag. Without a bag, I’m not sure where she keeps her lipstick and phone (imagine the Snapchats from John Mayer!), but maybe her cape has a secret pocket?
Any guesses on next year’s gown? A girl can never have too many capes!
