Grammys and Assorted Fugs and Fabs, Katy Perry, PLUS Well Played, Allison Williams


well-played

Katy Perry read CBS’s wardrobe guidelines and realized that while they forbade under- and side-boob, no one said she couldn’t whip out plenty of TOP boob. She also bought out: John Mayer in velvet, her friend (?) Allison Williams, and a whole bunch of other outfits over the weekend. Take a peek.

    I loved the green. I thought it was stunning. The color was great with her skin. Her body looked slamming. Her chest looked magical. She may be my best dressed. Love the orange too.

    Allison Williams being there threw me off but she looked very pretty.

    The color is great and the embellishment on the neckline is AMAZING!! Just wish there was a little less boobage, though she can pull it off. So jealous of that neckline detail and how amazing the color looks on her!

    I’m so surprised that people find the mint color flattering on Katy; I truly think it makes her look ill, sick, and sallow. The orange, by contrast, is fantastic for her coloring.

    The beige dress is a total miss. Katy Perry has, as we all know, a great figure, but that beige dress flattens her chest, widens her waist, and is a horrid color to boot.

      I agree, I thought the green made her look ill. The color with that shape looks really old to me. I was never a fan of the “Pricilla Presley” era of fashion she claimed she was copying, so I am sure that is part of it. I think it would have been a lot worse if she had a beehive.

      I though the cleavage was too much as well. It is a lot of fun to have a big rack, but I think she went over the line by showing that much at one time. She doesn’t look classy, IMO.

    I loved the white dress and the orange one was pretty. The green dress made me start muttering about needing a better bra – in several shots it made her look droopy

    I almost never like what Katy Perry is wearing, but I agree that the orange dress is great. I read somewhere that she was going for a Priscilla Presley vibe with her green Grammy’s dress.

    I wish I could swap the hair and makeup of the dingy bubblegum dress with the hair and makeup on the minty boobs dress.

    Oh Ellen, you slay me. You can ogle my peppermint patties any day.

    I don’t think I’ll ever be a fan of Katy Perry’s music/artistic persona, but props where props are due: It seems like she has finally figured out how to dress herself. She is a very pretty woman with a beautiful figure, but for a long time basically everything she wore was ill-fitted, ill-conceived, derivative in a bad way, and obnoxiously over the top. These, especially the two in mid-century-mod sorbet colors, are over the top in a nice, friendly way, if that’s possible–that combo plays to her persona without making me want to run screaming from the room, and they make her boobs look fantastic.

      I agree. But the things is, Katy hasn’t learned how to dress herself; the Grammys just forced her to put it away this year. Well, most of it.

        Damnit, I closed those italics. I know I did.

        I disagree! For most of last year (with the exception of a few missteps), Katy has been dressing much more refined and classy. Whoever did her make-under has to be commended as it allows you to appreciate how beautiful she is and with a slammin’ body to boot.

    There must be something to John Mayer but he sure looked like a tool at the Grammys. So did Johnny Depp. And while I’m criticizing the menfolk, I’m hoping any Rihanna pictures will ignore her date.

    Listen, Grammy-attending women! Every single frickin’ one of us with the XX genotype has (or did, or will have) breasts. Please put yours away. Your childish attempts at the flipping the bird at the broadcast tv dress code are tiresome.

    The orange dress is lovely.

    She’s definitely worn worse, she looks slamming and it amazes me that those boobies are real. I have to call fab. The Daily Mail knew Katy Perry and Allison Williams were friends, although they tried to sell it that Allison Williams was a man stealer and only after John Mayer for about 3 articles before admitting defeat.

    At least she’s stopped wearing latex to every event

    Not a beehive. A full on Elizabeth Taylor HAIRDO.

    Williams looks terrific, if a bit out of place, and I love the orange on Katy. The white would be lovely if not for the sagging below her bum (how did THAT happen? She has a great bum! Tsk, tsk, Katy’s tailor…).

    The green thing just makes me think, “Look into bras.” And Perry’s breasts are really pretty terrific, so it’s the fault of the dress. Not flattering. This is becoming a chronic problem with her.

    Mayer looks consumptive, and Perry’s wearing WAY too much hair. Although, if it were done as in Dazie’s link… that could make the whole thing costume-y enough so it would work as such.

    I don’t understand why every actress/singer/starlet with boobs feels the need to show them all over the place. Katy Perry could have looked really good, but with those massive babyheads popping out all over the place, my only thought was “porn star.” Not a good look.

      Exactly. All I could think was ‘Is she asking everyone who walks by to motor boat her?’ Enough already.

      This dress would be beautiful on someone much smaller chested, Kate Hudson would look amazing in it.

        I would totally motorboat her. I think it’d be hysterical, then we’d go for drinkies. Or maybe we’d go for drinkies first, then the motorboating, then more drinkies.

    I saw a progression of Ellen G’s reaction to Katy’s cleavage, and it was hilarious. As was Portia’s increasing mortification. Go Ellen.

      Ellen kills me every day. And Portia’s reaction is exactly what it would be if she were married to a dude instead. Hilarious.

    I don’t blame Ellen. I’m straight and I can’t stop staring at Katy’s boobs. To quote a Seinfeld episode, “They’re spectacular.”

    The white dress reminds me less of Gaga, and more of Michelle Williams’ 2011 Oscar dress/matelasse bedspread. I actually prefer Katy’s, and wonder if that’s what Michelle thought what she looked like.

    I may have actually RECOILED IN HORROR when the Mayer picture came up (I mean, my god, some warning here), but I think Katy looks varying degrees of great in all of these, especially the orange one.

    I love the closeup photo of Katie’s face with the downcast eyes. It’s fun to really study the makeup. Gotta hand it to her makeup artist, too — there’s a lot of it but it’s so smooth, professional, and flattering.

    I think she and RiRi were friends when they’d both found themselves single. Now that one is back with her abuser and the other is with Hollywood’s sloppy nineteenths, they maybe don’t have anything to say to each other?

    I think Katy looks pretty good in all of these, but I do wish the green had a bit more coverage in the chestal area. Mostly because the neck treatment is hideous as it is, so when you spread it out more like that, there’s just more hideous neck treatment. Although granted, she did give us something else to distract the eye.

    I love the style of the green dress but that particular shade of green reminds me of hospital walls

      THIS. I couldn’t put my finger on what was bugging me about the dress (other than the boobtacularness of it), but you have just NAILED IT.

    I have nothing against big boobs (I have them myself) but Katy’s green dress is just unflattering to them. I dunno, sometimes your boobs look like glorious boobs, other times it just looks like a bunch of chest fat and that’s what I’m getting from the green. The orange dress is a breath of fresh air though.

    Loved the white and the orange. I kept saying I wished LL Cool J would punch Chris Brown in the face. And take off his shirt. It would have been just as satisfying if Katy Perry had punched Chris Brown, and I bet she’d do it, too. And then buy Rihanna a drink and have a “get a grip” convo. It seems that KP has grown on me.

    I love how Sting is giving Katy a little ‘what fer’ in that photo of her grabbing Mayer’s ass. I imagine him saying, ‘Katie, looka moooy’ like in Kath & Kim.

    Allison is gorgeous as always, but is that her real skin tone? It looks kind of orange.

    Ugh – John Mayer. I’ve no idea why any woman with two brain cells to rub together would EVER consider this sleazeball to be good boyfriend material. He might as well be wearing a sandwich board with “Douchebag” written on the front and “Walking STD” written on the back.

    KittyPurry looks surprisingly great in all three gowns, although I do wish she’d done an elaborate 70′s updo for the green one.

    So, I got a kick out of the green dress. Mostly because the way the cleavage was done it was like you know she was kinda skirting the ‘dress code’, I mean it was center cleavage side boob, and just a ghost of underboob, but she was obviously trying to push it as far as she could without being completely defiant, which cracked me up in the best way and made me love her a little bit. I could almost hear her in my head say “So, what are you going to do CBS? Huh? NOT LET ME IN? Is that what you’re going to do? YEAH, THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT. Kiss my underboob, CBS.”

    I know that Ellen DeGeneres is a comedienne and being funny is kind of her job and all that, but I must say that the pic of Ellen reacting to Katie’s boobs is pretty damn funny. And Portia’s reaction is pretty priceless too.

    Alison looks great and I actually don’t mind Katy’s look either. LOL and only Ellen could make oogling boobs look adorable

    The orange wins for me. The green dress a bit tacky although the collar is lovely. After seeing Ms Perry au naturel (sans make-up) in an ill advised Twitpic by Mr Russell Brand a few years ago, I would say she scrubs up well but aint no natural beauty.

    Bingbing Li wore that same mint dress to the Golden Horse Awards last year (google image it!!) and she just looked so effortlessy classy – I’m afraid Katy’s a “Fug by comparison” for me.

    I actually really liked both dresses. I think the cleavage is well played here – the fact hat the rest of the dress is long and flowing makes it hit just the right note of sexy for me. And the orange dress is still great.

    Damn, Mayer is looking rough these days. I’m trying to convince myself that Perry is well aware of what John Mayer is and is just getting her kicks in the meanwhile.

    She looks fantastic. I’m so pleased with the more grown-up (but still fun) gown choices she’s been making lately.

    give her a beehive and Katy is just kitchy enough to pull off that green. The orange however, is stunning.

    The lovely green dress would have looked a lot better of Katy hadn’t gone with the orange spray tan. Green and orange together? Ick! And light greens look fabulous with pale skin and dark hair, she would have looked stunning if she’d gone with her natural fair skin.

    But I suppose she thought she needed the fake bake to carry off the cream and orange dresses she’d worn in the preceding days.

    Katie Perry went for boobtacular and totally pulled it off. I don’t feel like I’m inappropriately at her doctor’s office with her in an annual exam, you know? They’re in place, and there’s no nipple slippage. I wish the hair and make up were bolder, but whatev. More power to her.
