Katy Perry made her way to cast her ballot in a manner only the singer could pull off.

As she strutted to drop off her absentee ballot yesterday, the “Firework” singer modeled a midi-length chunky knit Hatch sweater dress and a trending pair of shoes — and one extra special addition. Once she placed her vote, the musician threw on a lifesize “I Voted” button made in the form of a giant headpiece to send a clear message.

Perry is known for her outrageous and one-of-a-kind looks, sporting everything from “Dumbo” costumes to dressing up as a giant bottle of hand sanitizer during her time in quarantine.

The new mom, who welcomed her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom in August, kept comfortable during her outing with a little help from Birkenstock. Considered traditionally “ugly” in the fashion world, the “Dark Horse” star joined the expansive list of celebrities (such as Heidi Klum, Katie Holmes and Chris Pine) switching out their sleek heels for orthopedic-looking or sport-leaning sandals like iterations from Teva, Adidas, Prada and, of course, Birkenstock.

Perry’s pair specifically came in the form of the brand’s Arizona Shearling sandals, a classic double-strap pair reimagined with furry interior lining for fall. Complete with a signature cork finish, the shoes can be found for $150 at Zappos.com.

In addition to wearing stylish shoes, the singer also has her own line of footwear. Perry launched her namesake collection in 2016 as a joint venture with Global Brands Group Holding Ltd.

“I like my shoes to tell a story through the heel, [asking]: ‘Can it be this or can it be that?’ I’ve tried to put many a different figure or ornament on the heels just to tell a story and to hopefully start conversations via your feet wherever you’re going, whatever you’re doing,” Perry told FN of her brand in 2018.
