Katy Perry skipped the 2021 Met Gala, and because the 2020 event was canceled due to COVID-19, she didn’t get to rock the baby bump-enhancing outfit that she’d already picked out. In true Perry fashion, it was flamboyant and fun: a padded, copper-colored corset with a cone bra that was reminiscent of the one Madonna debuted in 1990 during the Blond Ambition Tour. Both pieces were designed by Jean Paul Gaultier. Perry shared a photo of her top on Instagram and captioned it, “What would have been …”
Instead of sticking to a similar aesthetic for the 2022 Met Gala, Perry hinted that she’s going to tone things down a bit. “You know, it would be pretty obvious for me to go play the kooky, crazy, wild, big, fun, colorful card,” she told Page Six Style. “This time, I’m going to play a whole different card.” She then joked that she might “just come in a suit of armor or something,” but the medieval protective wear wouldn’t really work with this year’s theme. According to Vogue, it’s “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” and attendees will be expected to seek inspiration from New York in the Gilded Age. While Perry is a pro at nailing retro looks, the era occurred in the late 1800s, long before dressing like a pin-up girl in public was socially acceptable. But it does provide her with an opportunity to wear another corset.
