Katy Perry and Her Modern Pinup Retro-Inspired Clothes

Dress Me Up: Modern Pinup

Perry is the perfect example of a modern pinup girl. Most of you weren't feeling her VMA's look so let's give the songstress a chance to redeem herself. Here she is looking sexy and sweet in a retro-inspired ensemble. From the fitted striped top to her polka dot skirt, this outfit screams vintage babe.

Looking like a modern pinup doesn't come with strict guidelines. Just remember to keep the top of your ensemble structured and the bottom flared — to create the perfect womanly silhouette. Pair with some cute heels, red lipstick, and a confident, flirty attitude. Remember, it's all about the details.

She's about as tasteful as a snickers bar with extra broken glass. Blergh.

She looks like a caricature and not a real person. The clothes are just ugly. Its like she's copying Dita Von Teese.

I don't like Katy, and I am so bored with this pin up look; except on Dita, she always looks fab.

I think this contrived look is boring and her hit song has been basically done before.

Though I think Dita does this look a bit better, I think Katy looks cute here.

I like this look, at least she is trying to be different. I know that her and Dita both like to dress like pin-up girls, but I like Dita is more sexy and provocative while Katy is more modern & fun.

I love Dita. I love Katy. Hooray for celebs that don't give into the stylist-conformity of so called "style" these days!

Now that y'all mention it, I'm having a rough time picturing her in anything but the pinup look. Hmm.

i like this look but my fear is that she's really putting herself in to a box of what we'll expect from her. i was thrilled when i saw the pics of her at the D&G show where she was wearing something other than her shorts and a bustier top. i think that she's starting to look like dita von tees where we see just one look - and it may suit her, but there's nothing wrong with variety either.

I don't like her music or her style. Dita looks like a pin-up girl. This girl looks ridiculous.

katy perrys a little desperate for attention. too staged/costume y. i think she has a great voice and i wish she wouldnt waste it on such idiotic music.
i love her, and i don't care if people don't get her or her look. i get it. she's witty, ironic, and has great style. and she's got pipes. at least good enough for pop hits. rock on katy.

I would take Dita's styling over hers any day. She looks like she's trying a bit too hard.

I just don't understand this look. It's like Kenley on Project Runway. I guess everyone wants to copy Dita.

She's cute, but I really don't like the outfits she puts together...very costumey.

She's kind of Dita Lite.
