However, she surprised everyone on Monday by choosing a different style, wearing a unique Oscar de la Renta dress with asymmetrical design. The gown had sheer black lace and a short skirt peeking out from under its gathered train. To complete her look of “gilded glamour”, she wore transparent elbow-length gloves, a stylish braided bun, and clear heels. Perry also accessorized with Victorian daond earrings from Briony Raymond, with a value of $425,000 and totaling more than 10 carats. Despite the unexpected change in her style, Perry had already hinted to Page Six Style that she would be trying something new.

Last month, the pop star was seen wearing a stunning outfit with a sheer black lace fabric draped over a structured skirt, which cascaded into a ruffled train. In a recent interview, she mentioned wanting to switch things up and not go for her typical kooky and colorful look.
Perry jokingly considered showing up in a suit of armor or even skipping the event and sending someone else in her place wearing the armor.

In a sneak peek from Amy Odell’s upcoming biography of Anna Wintour, the fashion designer reminisced about how attending an exhibition about the 18th century used to be all about chic people in stunning outfits. You didn’t have to dress up like you were from that era or go over the top with crazy attire; it was simply about appreciating the beauty of the clothes. It was a far cry from today’s extravagant and sometimes bizarre fashion statements where people arrive in vans wearing chandeliers, unable to sit down because of their elaborate outfits.

Perry mentioned to Page Six Style that she planned to switch things up this year. However, her playful side is still very much alive as she decided to dress up as Ariel from “The Little Mermaid” for “American Idol’s” Disney night, complete with a tail. Unfortunately, her dedication to the costume caused her to take a fall during the performance.
