Red Carpet: Katy Perry Promotes The Smurfs 2 In Blue Everything

Katy Perry is a pretty divisive figure around these here parts (by which we mean ladyblogs): she says some pretty unfortunate stuff, she tweets intimate moments with John Mayer, she dresses like a chew toy… but then she posts a photo of her Daria nail art on Instagram and we kind of forgive everything. Guess we’re dumb.

The point is, you can love or hate Katy Perry, but in all likelihood you have an opinion about her red carpet style (there were probably other points). We’re kind of in favor of how she dresses like a chew toy; she usually seems to be the only person on the red carpet having fun.

However! While promoting The Smurfs 2* in Cancun, Mexico, she actually found a nice balance between cartoonishness (head to toe blue, obviously, plus a flower garland and retro glasses) and… sweet ladylike poise. We’re pretty into it:

Yes, wearing all blue to promote a Smurfs movie is kind of an obvious choice; yes, those shimmering Jimmy Choo pumps don’t really tone anything down; yes, this close to Coachella, we never need to see another damn flower garland for as long as we live.

…And yet, it all kind of works.

Also. This is pretty cute:
