Katy Perry wore an array of glamorous outfits at the 2014 Grammy Awards last night.
The 29-year-old singer kicked off the night in a stunning sheer Valentino gown as she arrived at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The beautiful piece required
Keeping up with the theme of the event the skirt of the dress was covered in a musical note pattern, adding a touch of fun to the elegant number. Katy’s raven locks were worn up in a plaited bee-hive style, which appeared to be a hairpiece. Along with several rings, the musician wore dangling earrings with ruby-coloured stones.
Speaking about her gown to E!’s Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet Katy explained her choice of outfit.
“It’s musical for music’s biggest night,” she smiled.
This wasn’t the only Valentino dress she wore that evening. During the ceremony Katy let her long hair down and slipped into a couture gown by the fashion house, which was unveiled during its Spring 14 show last week.
The red wine-coloured piece held a tutu skirt and a snake design wrapped around the waist.
Katy changed ensembles again for a performance of her latest single Dark Horse. Her stage outfit was a lot more casual with a grungy edge compared to her other pieces. Her flesh-coloured top featured a black and red cross and was paired with a black and purple skirt. To top off the punky look Katy wore netted tights and thick black boots.
In addition to her singing Katy was made the centre of attention when her first ever commercial for CoverGirl was aired.
“I just want to keep evolving,” she says in the video as she demonstrates an array of different looks.
Speaking before the clip was shown Katy recalled how she was offered the role of face of the company.
“Everybody asks me, ‘Oh, when did you feel like you made it?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, when CoverGirl called me up and said, ‘Hey, do you want to be a CoverGirl?’” she laughed.
Other stars who dazzled at the Grammy Awards were Taylor Swift in a layered off-white Alberta Ferretti gown, which featured an embellished neckline, and Beyoncé Knowles in a risqué lacy white gown by Michael Costello.
