“I’ve adopted the Beyoncé leg,” she says in the October issue of InStyle, in which she flaunts her lavender locks. “When I saw her on tour, she had these glowing legs.” So Perry decided to get to the bottom of those glimmering gams, ASAP. The secret? “They’re Wolford neon 40 tights,” she reveals. “I put them on first, and then over them I wear a Capezio fishnet that has been bedazzled. I do lots of layers. I’m like an artichoke.”
Though the singer, who is inspired by the pin-up girls of the ’40s and ’50s, dons some pretty elaborate frocks, she says it’s ensembles with corsets that are the least comfortable of all her costume choices. “I love how they look, but they cut off my main instrument while I’m trying to get sound out. It can be … interesting,” she shares.
But once she’s done wearing them, where does Perry put those outfits — some of which feature moving pieces, major feathers and super-tall hats? “I have a storage unit at an undisclosed location,” she shares. “The last one that went in was the Smurfette dress. Hopefully we’ll have some fabulous Elton John-type auction some day!”
