Get the Look: Katy Perry’s Unique California Goth Style

Every week we come to you with a trend, one that a good handful of stylish celebs have caught onto and run with it. Today, though, we are all about pop tart Katy Perry and the fun she brings to any event with her sartorial choices. We are in love with her slightly goth bent—though animal print never seems to be too far behind.

We think Katy's dressed like the Queen of Pop here [1] for good reason. No matter what you think of her music, you can’t deny that her royal-looking velvet ensemble is stunning—we wish we had the guts to wear a floor-length embellished cape. Katy keeps it catty in this animal print maxi [2], but the safety pin detailing keeps it from being too Jersey Shore. This pretty sweater dress [3] is one of the more accessible looks we’ve seen her wear. This fuzzy jacket/striped dress look [4] is pure Katy: down-to-earth dress + slightly out-there jacket = a winning combination.
