Over the past several weeks Katy Perry has been dazzling the small screen during the taped nationwide auditions for American Idol. She has been serving lewks from Moschino, Versace Tribute, Vivetta, Rasario, Christopher Kane, Andrew Gn, Saint Laurent, and David Koma. I am really excited to see what the live shows will bring from her style wise. Picking looks for her I focused on really visually appealing but that focus most on the bust and neck since she is going to be filmed mostly sitting behind the judges table. So I picked nine really great looks for her to rock for the next couple of weeks while judging American Idol. First up is this powder blue, red, white, and black striped Adam Selman Fall 2018 RTW short sarong dress which features a feathered halter neckline and above the knee hem. I definitely think that this has the visual appeal that I am looking forward from Katy to rock on the stage for one of the American Idol live shows. Katy loves herself some really good feather moments and I think that this would appeal to her edgy, flirty, and chic sides. Attico is a rising celeb favorite that we have already seen Katy embrace in the past. When I was flipping though the brands Fall 2018 collection I knew that there were definitely plenty of options for her to snatch. I picked my only strapless option here with this pink allover sequined ensemble which features a strapless peplum bodice and a pair of slim fit pants. I would actually keep the lookbook’s head to toe styling with the purple velvet wide buckle belt and the green Water Skake and yellow ostrich feathers mid heel stiletto slingback pumps.
Not many of the looks featured in this list are completely devoid of embellishment, but this blue and white gingham plaid Jonathan Simkhai Resort 2018 long sleeve dress which features a plunging neckline and a contrasting printed built in bustier belt like waist is still a visual moment. Katy knows how to switch things up. Her looks during the initial auditions spoke to that. Each one was memorable but not everything was full of sparkle. This is Jonathan Simkhai dress is definitely something that I could see Katy really rocking especially with some statement blue Oscar de la Renta iridescent impatiens clip on earrings.
Katy’s stylist Jamie Mizrahi took over the creative director role for Juicy Couture and delivered the brands first New York Fashion Week show back in February. Since then the brand has had some big love sent to it by stars like Lorde, Michelle Monaghan, and of course Katy herself. The sequin jumpsuit that Katy ended up wearing for a performance at an Oscar party was the look I originally picked for Katy to rock during the American Idol run, but I know I wanted to see Katy pay tribute to her friend and stylist by wearing a look from the brand. So I think that this dark antique rose Juicy Couture Fall 2018 RTW long sleeve silk dress which features a high neck and a tired skirt would be a really flirty moment for Katy to rock on the American Idol stage.
When it comes to eye catching print and dazzling use of sequins I couldn’t not option a statement making look from the queen of print, Mary Katrantzou. It has been a long time since we have seen Katy take on a Katrantzou design and I definitely think that this rainbow sequined Mary Katrantzou Resort 2018 dress which features a bold printed design, bell sleeve construction, and an iridescent sequin stripe skirt would be another really eye catching judges moment for Katy. The couture take on the tracksuit was seen all over the runways recently and I feel like we will definitely see Katy rock at least one over the course of the show. I feel like that she would be the perfect person to bring this bold colored sequin and bead embroidered Naeem Khan Fall 2018 RTW tracksuit to the stage.
I am always on the hunt for new brands. PRISCAVera is a brand that I opened the pics for on a whim during New York Fashion Week, and I am glad I did. There were some really great potential moments from this collection. When I saw this tone on tone green ensemble which features a high neck ruched satin long sleeve crop top and a pleated vinyl midi skirt Katy immediately came to mind and I definitely think that for something like judging the live shows for American Idol that this look would be a really chic moment.
Would it really be a list of look for Katy to judge American Idol wearing without an animal print look as a nod her her Katy Kat fan base? Katy was on the red carpet at the Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2018 presentation back in January and so she was already on my mind when I flipped through the lookbook. This dusty acid neon leopard sweater ensemble which features a long sleeved top and a pencil midi skirt definitely was a look I think that Katy would rock that rock on that stage with a pair of great orange and gold Alexis Bittar faceted lucite drop earrings.
Finally I think that this black tulle and silver sequined Temperley London Fall 2018 RTW dress which features a wrap front bodice and blouson sleeves would be a really chic, femme fatale moment for the American Idol stage. I played with color for all the rest of Katy’s looks, but I wanted to go for something more classically chic with this look. I think that it would be a really chic change of pace for all the bold color and prints that dominated all the rest of the looks. To me a pair of statement making black and white Mignonne Gavigan lux feather ‘Mini Madeline’ earrings and some really on fleek makeup including a bold red lip and thick lashes all would really ensure that this is such a chic look for Katy.
