The 2009 VMAs are JUST AROUND THE CORNER, which means many things (late nights, pizza-related breakouts, coffee jitters for a month straight), but one of the most fun things it means is that it's time to talk FASHION and make FUN OF DUMB THING CELEBRITIES WEAR! Except for celebrities who wear cool things, and I'm sorry but when you have a body like Katy Perry -- a body that I have been in extremely close proximity to (seriously, I interviewed her in a dressing room backstage at TRL, and the whole [closet of a] room was completelye jam-packed with Katy Perry's amazing legs, perfect arms, and glorious boobs) you can wear whatEVER you want.
Katy Perry is presenting a Moonman at the 2009 VMAs, which leads me to wonder what the hell she's gonna wear.
Last year at the 2008 VMAs, Katy Perry wore a vintage pin-up girl outfit on the red carpet and a naughty peel-away banana playsuit in which she performed "Like a Virgin."
In the past 10 months alone, Katy Perry's worn a Manish Arora carousel dress to the 2008 EMAs, a massively hardcore Hello Kitty corset (designed by The Blonds), a giant sequined playing card dress by designer Asish in her "Waking Up In Vegas" video, and of course there was all that vintage Bob Mackie that gives me a fashion coronary just thinking about. The full-on sparkly fruit bowl (also by the Blonds) from the 2009 Grammys, and that Matthew Williamson peacock dress, the other peacock dress from the MTV Video Music Awards Japan. Don't forget her mermaid outfit from the Life Ball, and her dice dress from the Today show.
The bar has been set extremely high (or low, depending on your perspective, though I'm a total Katy supporter and apologist when need be), and if I were Katy Perry, I might be a little nervous right now looking at my closet. (I'd also probably look at myself in the mirror A LOT.) Should she pull a Brüno and wear a Velcro outfit with EVERYTHING she owns stuck to her? Go in disguise as Miley Cyrus? Wear Zac Posen on her back? What the hell is Katy Perry going to wear to the 2009 VMAs?
