Katy Perry Tones It Down For The Red Carpet

A pleasant beauty surprise from the former FLARE cover girl at the MTV EMAs

Dressed as a beaded admission ticket on the red carpet of the MTV Europe Music Awards, Katy Perry undoubtedly knows how to turn heads. But what really caught our eye last night was the newlywed’s sophisticated beauty look. Perry wore her hair in a high ponytail that was super sleek on top yet feminine, thanks to full curls at the back. Also upping the pretty factor were the superstar’s look-at-me lashes and Baccarat ruby studs. As far as beauty goes, Katy Perry scored a perfect balance: the curls, lashes and jewels lend softness to her otherwise minimal and sleek look (from the neck up, that is). Given her recent obsession with rainbow tresses, it’s refreshing to see the pop princess sporting understated beauty for the red carpet—though, the multi-coloured streaks did make their inevitable appearance on stage later in the evening.
