While Vogue cover stars can be a bit predictable, we feel like the wild cards are the musicians. We didn’t really see Gwen Stefani’s January cover coming and we definitely didn’t see this coming.
A well-placed source told us that Katy Perry, lover of temporary hair colors, bustier tops, and cartoon-like get ups, has a US Vogue cover in the works. It will be her first cover for the fashion bible.
Perry’s working on a new album now, so perhaps the cover will be timed to its release. There have also been rumors that she’s working on her own clothing line.
And regarding the question of whether Perry is “Vogue” enough, Vogue seems to think so. The pop star has already been featured on Vogue.com twice this year–once for an exclusive inauguration diary and most recently at Coachella. Plus, her style seems to have gotten a tad more refined recently–one example being the Wes Gordon frock she wore to the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event last year. She also covered Teen Vogue last year.
If this is true, it’s safe to say this cover and its accompanying editorial are going to have some pretty interesting fashion and we can’t wait to see what a Vogue-ified Katy Perry looks like. Do you think they’ll indulge her over-the-top sensibility or put her in something uncharacteristically conservative?
I’ve created this fake cover trying to imagine how the cover would look like. What do you think? Would be Vogue brave enough to feature Katy full of colors, or would they try to make her look more “sophisticated”. If it’s true we will see it soon!
