Did Katy Perry Get a Makeover in Anticipation of Her Film Debut?

Ever since her hit single "I Kissed a Girl" topped the charts back in 2008, former Lucky cover girl Katy Perry hasn't exactly been celebrated for her high-fashion looks. Sure, Katy's music is undeniably addictive and her concert ensembles are plenty cute—in a gimmicky sort of way—but she'd sooner be seen in a cupcake bra and cutoffs (see: her "California Gurls" video) than, say, a look debuted at Paris Couture Week.

Until now, that is. Blame it on her new-ish purple dye job, her upcoming documentary Part of Me (which hits theaters on July 5) or even her recent divorce from Russell Brand, but the 27-year-old pop superstar has been looking pretty proper recently. Click through the gallery to scope out some of her finest fashion moments from the past month—plus pieces you can shop now to get Katy's new and improved look.

How cool is this two-tone jumpsuit she wore onstage at the MuchMusic Video Awards earlier this month? What appeared to be a lace long-sleeved top and wide-legged trouser combo was, in fact, a one-piece—and a flattering, leg-lengthening one at that. Click through to shop the look.

Channeling The Great Gatsby's Daisy Buchanan—albeit with far more interestingly-colored curls—Katy wore this vintage apricot silk slipdress by Nolan Miller, a jeweled headband and looped pearls to a City of Hope event several weeks ago. She finished off her look with crystal-embellished Manolo Blahniks—and while a bit costumey, you've got to admit the lady looks gorgeous. Click through to shop the look.
