She’s never afraid to mix things up when it comes to experimenting with styles. So when Katy Perry opted for a feminine look in a lace dress and floral jacket for a shopping trip in New York on Tuesday, she decided to add a tough edge by topping the ensemble off with a pair of black studded biker boots.
The 28-year-old singer looked chic in her blue and black lace dress, with a floral zip-up jacket and dark sunglasses as she enjoyed a spot of retail therapy with her stylist Johnny Wujek.
Katy added a biker chick touch to her ensemble with her boots, and topped of the look with a pair of sunglasses and powder pink handbag.
Meanwhile Johnny – who has gone on to appear as a creative director on America’s Next Top Model as Katy reached mega heights of fame – looked more casual in a blue shirt and rolled up beige trousers with a plaid jacket on top. He teamed it with a baseball cap and also donned ebony boots.
The pair were on the hunt for the perfect pair of pumps, with Katy joined by designer Tommy Hilfiger at one point during the search.
Tweeting a picture of the pair from behind, Katy wrote: ‘Today my friend Tommy Hilfiger took me shoe shopping #kingofclassic.’ Meanwhile, Katy has revealed in a new interview that she thought she was ‘the chosen one’ when she started working with music producer Glen Ballard at the tender age of 17.
She said: ‘At the beginning I was working with Glen and everything was cool. I had black Jetta, my first car, and I thought I was the s**t. I remember my cousin said, “You should be grateful for this because it could all go flying out the window at any moment.” ‘And I was like, “Not for me. I’m the chosen one.” Then the rug got pulled from underneath me.’ Katy had two record deals before she hit the bigtime with her track I Kissed A Girl in 2008. She added to Britain’s OK! magazine: ‘I had no money, no car, I couldn’t pay the rent. I had this really skewed perspective of what it meant to make it.
‘I needed that to appreciate what I have now. I just keep that in mind when things go bad. There’s always a way for things to get better.’
