2009 Critics' Choice Awards: Katy Perry

2009 Critics' Choice Awards: Katy Perry

Last year, Katy Perry shot out of nowhere to become one of the biggest pop stars of the year — partly because of her quirky retro style. For the Critics' Choice Awards, she took it way back to the '50s, wearing fat curls in her hair and plush fake lashes on her lids. It's a little Dita Von Teese, but somehow, Katy makes it her own. Do you like this look, or are you wanting something else?

I voted that I liked it but I think the whole retro thing would have gone over better with red lips.

Wow, Katy looks alot better since her breakup. She's made her eyes the focus and it's a clean look. I like it alot, her best yet.

I can't tell if it's the makeup or if I just don't like her face, but something about this is not working for me. I think that this "old Hollywood pinup" look she's doing is maybe just not as original or as exciting as she thinks--at least to me.

Is it just me or does her face really look lopsided in that picture?? But to answer the question - no, it's not a great look for her.

I don't get why everyone is falling over themselves about her. She has such a strange face to me. Annoying on all fronts: music, personality, style. Can she go away already? :oy:

This look does nothing for her. And sorry, but she's no Dita. She tries way too hard (fashion, music, being relevant), and everything about this chick annoys me.

I like this look. She has very lovely skin, and I'd show it off too.

I don't like her at all (music and personality), but I don't get why everyone hates her look - I think she is so unique and beautiful and I always like her hair and makeup. I think this is actually the most tame look she's done, and I like it...

A little too Cupie Doll for my taste. Black hair does not suit her coloring.

She's trying too hard. Maybe she knows her 15 minutes are almost up.

It would look better if it matched her skin tone. With a bare dress, you can tell how different her face is from her body skin color.

Her face is very pretty. She has really nice big eyes but that hairstyle ages her.
