Katy Perry is the cover girl for the March issue of Elle Magazine (on newstands now), and she dishes to the mag about her journey to stardom, her sexy image, and more. We love that she is not shy about revealing her true self! The avant-garde pop star also loves to express her personality through her sense of fashion, and since that includes ‘pinup swimwear’ inspired outfits, we’re all for it.
The spread features a vintagey circus theme, with Katy posing in a variety of designer swimsuit like pieces. We adore these two solid pieces and think they translate perfectly onto beach fashion. To spruce this style up with a bit of floral, try the less costume-y Adorable Nightmare by Maaji Swimwear. This one piece swimsuit features the same hipster style cut at the leg and vintage inspired feel. The pair of black lines down the shoulder line contour the torso, and match the removable straps that can be attached at your preference. Seemlessly flowing with Katy’s style.
Love that the girl makes no excuses and is as honest as Hollywood gets. Some other interesting quotes from the spread:
On her down-to-earth personality: “It’s important to be relatable and normal. And I think that what helps with that, for me, is that I had the rug pulled out from underneath my feet so many times. It was like, ‘Listen up, bitch, you’re not going to get served this on a silver platter—you’ve got to work for it!’ I don’t feel like I can act like an entitled bitch yet! I still have so much to prove.
On whether she’s had any reservations about presenting a provocative image: “We’re past that. I’m a sexy girl, so what? I never claimed I was a nun!”
