Katy Perry Lands Her First Vogue Cover & Reveals Her Beauty Insecurities
Everything is coming up roses for Katy Perry, who just snagged her first ever Vogue cover.
Shot by famed photographer Anne Leibovitz, the 28-year-old singer looks stunning for the July issue wearing flower-print frock by Rodarte and channeling Snow White with her blood-red lips, porcelain skin, and raven hair. In the behind-the-scenes video from her shoot for the July cover of Vogue, Katy opens up about the way she cultivated her signature style.
“I’ve been dyeing my hair back since I was 15,” she shares. “The whole reason I’ve been dying my hair black, actually, was because when I was 15, I chopped it all off. I had it bleached blonde, like Madonna in Who’s That Girl and it just didn’t look right, so I bought a box of color and went black, and never gone back.”
Despite her stunning good looks, the “Firework” singer admits she didn’t always think she was the bomb. “We used to like to do dramatic make-up but I think we are coming into the more age-appropriate field of experimenting,” she says. “You know, my skin used to be a lot worse than it is. So we would do a lot more coverage because I was insecure about my skin and when you are insecure about your skin you just do a lot more. Most of the time I’m doing stuff with big lights and a lot of HD, so there are a lot of things to think about when painting the face. But I love a good paint. My brows and my eyes I think are what frame my whole face. I have alright lips and alright cheekbones, but they’re no showoffs.”
