I’m not the most enormous fan of Katy Perry‘s music, but I can’t find it within me to hate on her, either – singling out one pop star over another seems kind of pointless to me, and I can admit that I (secretly) have a few songs of hers on my iPod.
And she did sing live at the VMAs last night, something that the vast majority of performers certainly don’t undertake. Another thing she did last night was rock a fab makeup look – her eyes were easily my favorite of the evening. They were shadowed with thick, glittery silver and rimmed in a dramatic black cat eye liner look that I wish I had occasion to wear every day. Add in her enormous faux lashes, and I thought she was perfectly over-the-top for such an MTV event.
My only criticism would be her lipstick – if I had been her, I would have taken the look full-circle and done a matte, red lip color for the highest glamour quotient possible. Her somewhat more subdued pink looks nice on her, but there are so few events where you can get away with high drama and still look totally appropriate, and the VMAs are easily one of them.
