In a rare incident of a fashion faux pas, Katy Perry annoyed fashion critics by wearing a bizarre superhero-inspired outfit on stage when she made an exclusive appearance on BBC's Let's Dance - the celebrity-based charity dance show - where she performed new single Part Of Me.
Katy's outfit was predominantly metallic lilac, with lightning flashes across the shoulders and matched cuffs on each wrist, something out of Marvel Comics. Underneath, she had lilac leggings and the outfit was finished off with a pair of black boots.
And not to mention, her now familiar blue hair. Katy, usually known for her bubble gum-esque sense of fashion failed miserably in the eyes of the fashion world. The outfit paled in comparison to previous efforts, which most recently included a stunning baby doll dress design, and a barely there leotard, during a performance in Los Angeles. Both the colours and the design did little to flatter the singer however her performance, of new song Part Of Me, was great. It began with the singer in the centre of the stage, in a cage created by green lasers which went from floor to ceiling. As she left the 'cage' dancers joined her on stage and the lasers spread out to cover the stage. Midway through her troupe of dancers lifted her above them and she stood proud in the middle of the stage before continuing with her brilliant routine.
