Katy Perry’s latest look for “American Idol” had heads turning everywhere from the stage to the bathroom stalls.
The “Firework” musician shared her ensemble for last night’s episode, posing in the restroom as she stood atop a toilet in towering heels. The outfit featured a leather bustier-style dress from Alexander McQueen complete with exposed stitching and a midi hemline.
As for footwear, the “Daisies” singer continued the monochrome appeal of her look in a set of trending square-toe sandals. The Giuseppe Zanotti design highlights patent leather and glittering uppers, all set atop a 3.5-inch curved heel. Also accented with an ankle-wrap design, the Eclissa silhouette retails for $895 on the brand’s website.
Square-toe footwear returned to the celebrity scene in 2019 and has continued into this year as one of spring and summer’s biggest trends. Be it a classic boot, a flat slide or a towering stiletto heel, the minimalistic silhouette falls in line with a ’90s-inspired revitalization of fashion, as seen with combat boots and thong-toe shoe styles, as well as pops of neon color across apparel and footwear.
Just last week, Perry brought her bold style back to the set of “American Idol” this week.
The series’ judge channeled a bright shade for spring on the set of the singing competition, modeling a matching shirt and pants set; the design featured a puff-sleeve blouse and coordinating satin-trim bottoms, both coated in a glittering crystal edge.
The new mom, who welcomed her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom in August 2020, is no stranger to adding a bold piece to her rotation of ensembles. In addition to wearing standout looks and stylish shoes, the Grammy-nominated 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.
