Katy Perry's forward frock was fashion forward

Talk about fashion forward!

The body-skimming cobalt blue rubber dress singer Katy Perry performed in at President Barack Obama's Milwaukee rally Saturday afternoon was phenomenal.  It was perfectly - I mean perfectly - molded to the singer's 28-year-old flawless body. But the best part was how Obama's slogan, "forward" snaked down the right side of the dress. Slick!

Oh, and the sparkling high-heeled Mary Janes she wore - perfectamundo!

One of this election season's best fashion moments.

Katy Perry arrived on stage wearing a red white and blue dress holding a microphone shaped like The Statue of Liberty. Very nice. Very patriotic.

But after belting a cover of Al Green's hit, "Let's Stay Together" - we know how the prez feels about Al - Perry peeled her self out of the dress and made fashion headlines. Fake out!

I think we'll be seeing this dress recycled on the cover of a fashion magazine soon, whatever the outcome of the election is. It may even find a permanent home in a musuem space.

What do you think? Was the dress too forward?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
