Move over Gaga -- look of the year goes to the Katy Perry VMA 2011 looks which included four distinctive dresses, each more quirky than the one before! The dazzling diva's outfit changes solidified the singer's title as princess of pop. She accepted her first award of the night in a gorgeous selection from Atelier Versace.
Her second look took a more classic, elegant approach with a floor-length, long-sleeve purple Tom Ford dress. Her third look of the night, and my personal favorite, was a bold printed skirt complemented by a Christian Dior Haute Couture jacket which she wore to pic up her Video of the Year award for chart-topping single "Firework."
If she didn't stand out before, the cubic headpiece which completed the outfit certainly did the trick. Her final look was a custom form-fitting dress made by Johnny Wujek for Furne that was truly record breaking! The singing sensation's various looks were accented by her lavender locks and sexy arm candy of a husband.
Implications - Award shows are an opportunity for celebrities to be recognized not just for their musical and cinematic accomplishments, but to solidify their status as fashion icons. The massive audience these shows receive is an indicator of the publicly held fascination with the glamor of celebrity culture.
