What started as a “Teenage Dream” turned into pop music reality. Katy Perry has made her mark as one of the most original performers of our generation. But it’s not just her catchy tunes and (at times) controversial lyrics that grab attention — her flamboyant fashion choices are watched by fans and critics alike. Whether it’s performing with a miniature merry-go-round built into her dress or gluing fake sushi onto a barely-there leotard, Perry has mastered the art of entertaining the eye.
