Style Files: Preview Katy Perry’s Prismatic World Tour Looks
By Courtney E. Smith
Last week it was Valentino and Moschino, this week it’s Roberto Cavalli. It must be hard to be Katy Perry.
Today (May 6), Italian fashion designer Cavalli released official sketches of two costumes the design house created for Perry to wear on-stage during her Prismatic World Tour. The Kaleidoscope Brodè dress, on the left below, is embroidered with prism crystals, sequins and iridescent micro baguettes. The material is a tulle breastplate and a patchwork leather skirt designed to make 3D reflections under the lights.
The Crocodile Scarab look on the right includes a skirt and top both created with multi-colored, mirrored leather. It is topped with a holographic reptile biker jacket.
Perry herself has been revealing other Prismatic looks in advance of the tour’s start on May 7. The first, revealed via her Instagram, was a stunning, intricate Valentino butterfly robe. The card that accompanies the design house’s sketch says, in French, that the skirt is a multi-colored butterfly made of tulle with embroidered micro sequins and pearl encrusted wings.
Also revealed by Perry was a bright and sunny yellow, ’90s-inspired look from Moschino designed and autographed by Jeremy Scott.
Perry also posted looks from Fausto Puglisi, with a nod to her “Dark Horse” video look, and Nicolas Jebran, who did more of an alien-diva look. She previewed a balloon dress by her longtime stylist Johnny Wujek and Marco Marco. And there’s a firework dress from Todd Thomas, below.
