Katy Perry is definitely a California girl at heart. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, her beach bum looks have morphed into a style that is fun, sophisticated and edgy. In the latest issue of ELLE, Katy admits that she can’t be the bubblegum queen forever, but with five hit singles from her first album, she is certainly entitled to ride the wave for a while. While her stage outfits are nothing less than over the top, her street attire has an entirely different vibe. We often see her carrying Chanel purses, sporting Alice and Olvia tops and rocking Marc Jacobs flats – proving that she is no stranger to awesome style.
Her first look is a great representation of her style: playful and young but with an edge.
