Katy Perry is known for her bold beauty looks, theatrical ensembles, and chart-topping beats, but each year brings a more mature Katy — and with that, a more refined style. From satin skater dresses and sheen tights to ethereal designer gowns and decadent accessories, the pop princess has had quite the red carpet transformation. While her style has taken a more sophisticated turn, Katy would never completely abandon her signature whimsy, showcasing the perfect balance of fantasy and finesse in her latest looks.
