Katy Perry was a scene in green as she mentored the top 14 contestants alongside Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan on “American Idol” on Sunday night. The host looked radiant in an ensemble by St. Johns that consisted of a Boucle Slub Bustier top. The cropped garment featured a flattering sweetheart neckline and pointy hemline.

Perry paired the top with matching Boucle Slub pants. The straight leg trousers are complete with knit details, belt loops and statement pockets, which provided an elegant edge.

To amp up her look, the “Teenage Dream” hitmaker opted for glittery eyeshadow and a pink pout. She parted her raven tresses in the middle and styled her hair in sultry waves. In true fashion form, Perry added a statement accessory to her look: heart-shape hoop earrings. The jewelry had dangling clear crystals on the end.

To ground things, she slipped a pair of green PVC sandals by Gianvito Rossi. The “Elle” shoes had a pointy outer sole and a wide transparent strap across the toe and a 3-inch heel. They retail for $695 on Farfetch.com. A sleek staple during warmer months, many stiletto sandals feature a simple strap across the toes and a fastener strap around the ankle, creating a barely-there construction.

Perry tends to gravitate towards bold and sleek shoe styles. Her shoe wardrobe consists of pointed-toe pumps, flats, and mules from labels like Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, Manolo Blahnik and her own namesake brand. Perry’s shoe line sells silhouettes like pumps, sandals and flats. She launched it in 2016 as a joint venture with Global Brands Group Holding Ltd. and revealed in an interview with Footwear News that she has taken ownership of Katy Perry Collection after Global Brands Group filed for bankruptcy in July last year.
