The Dark Horse singer made our day when she turned up in a floorlength denim dress made by Versace Couture, featuring studded rhinestone crystals, retro patchwork design and matching denim chain purse. Rather familiar, no?
Finishing touches like the chunky chain belt, the thick choker and the matchy matchy (faux) boyfriend in the form of rapper pal Riff Raff made Perry’s ode to Britney and JT’s infamous double denim disaster all the more accurate as she expertly mimicked Spears’ questionable cowgirl look.
‘I must admit my outfit is a result of my love for nostalgia and my tumblr addiction,’ Katy tweeted shortly before her VMA red carpet reveal.
And how did Britney respond?
‘Just when I thought the denim dress had retired….you bring it back! You looked amazing tonight bb’, Spears, who was performing in Las Vegas, replied.
Oh Katy, how we love you.
