I understand that the celebrity machine runs on outfit criticism. I get that. Celebrities sell a fantasy and part of that fantasy is the clothes they wear. But this is just ridiculous: California girth: Katy Perry’s skin-tight silver dress clings in all the wrong places:
It could well be a trick of the light, combined with an unflattering outfit choice.
But the usually immaculate Katy Perry was looking a little curvier than usual during a concert in Budapest, Hungary, last night.
The 25-year-old star took to the stage in a skin-tight silver rubber dress, which clung in all the wrong places.
This is the outfit that is clinging so offensively in “all the wrong places”:
Apparently a female singer has to dance around the stage without her dress moving. And “California girth”? Seriously?
There’s no byline on it, just “Daily Mail Reporter” – the good ol’ anonymous “staff writer/reporter” we use when we’re too ashamed to put our own name to what we’ve been asked to write. Or we’ve been asked to re-write a story that the competitor got and we didn’t. Or it’s a re-written media release.
I’m in my mid-thirties so I don’t look at a photo like this and think, ‘if she is offensively curvy then I’m fucking hideous’. But if you’re a young girl or guy, and surrounded by photoshopped images and constant body snarking, it would fuck with your head.
