Katy Perry looks unrecognizable in the photos for her new fragrance campaign—though, anyone would with that many curlers in their hair, right?
The “Roar” singer channels Marie Antoinette for her next venture, a perfume called Killer Queen. That’s right. QUEEN. After securing her status as “pop princess” following the massive success of her last album Teenage Dream, it appears Katy is seeking to secure a bigger crown.
Us Weekly has the exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot and it contains all of Ms. Perry’s trademarks: fantastical, over-the-top, costumes galore. Katy wears a crimson-red corset, lace tights bedazzled with gems, a tower-high white beehive wig, and stiletto booties.
“When I was creating Killer Queen, I was really inspired by the idea of a strong, confident woman in power,” Katy said of her inspiration in a statement. “And that is exactly what I hoped to put into this fragrance, something that brings out the power inside of you.” It shows.
