Katy Perry’s disco ball style at the Echo Awards: stunning or busted?

Agent Bedhead has been covering a lot of Katy Perry news lately, but sometimes I like to dip my toe in just because Katy has become one of those “WTF?” celebrities. As in, WTF is she doing? WTF is she wearing? These are photos of Katy at last night’s Echo Awards in Germany. Lana del Rey was there. Yeah. Lana and Katy were buddy-buddy on the red carpet too. That says something, to me at least. Anyway, I absolutely loathe Katy’s current blue hair, and I don’t get why she feels the need to do these Flinstones-inspired hairstyles. As for Katy’s Paco Rabanne dress… um… okay. It’s, like, made of mirrored plates contouring her body. Like she’s the embodiment of a disco ball.

In other Katy Perry news, can you believe that people are still trying to convince us that Katy and model Baptiste Giabiconi are a thing? And please, don’t yell at me. I know all male models aren’t gay. I know that you can’t just look at someone and know that they’re gay. But this boy is totally gay. Still, we’re being sold this romance:

Katy Perry’s new romance with French model and musician Baptiste Giabiconi is heating up, and he’s thinking about a move to Los Angeles to be closer to the singer.

“He’s considering moving to LA, at least for some time,” a rep for Giabiconi, who is signed to DNA Model Management and is also a singer, confirmed to Page Six. “He’s really focusing on his music career from France, but he’s always traveling for his modeling career.”

The rep added that Giabiconi’s relationship with Perry is still in its early days: “It’s new, they’re feeling it out, but they’re spending a lot of time together.”

Perry was married to British comedian Russell Brand for 18 months, until he filed for divorce in December. Their divorce will be finalized in July. Last year, Giabiconi shared his feelings to a reporter about then-married Perry, telling fashion magazine Dansk, “If I could make her divorce her husband, I’d marry her.”

Well-groomed Giabiconi is a “far cry” from the scruffy, shaggy-haired Brand, we’re told.

“When it comes to having a real-hot man to escort her around, you can’t go wrong with Baptiste Giabiconi,” his rep quipped.

Perry and Giabiconi have been spotted together in Paris nightclubs this week, where they were described as “cute,” smiling and laughing together. “Katy looked really happy and in a good place,” a friend told us.

The new couple was photographed cuddling aboard the Eurostar train from London and disembarking in Paris, looking content.

Perry and Giabiconi sat together in the front row at the fall/winter 2012 Chanel runway show in Paris earlier this month. But Perry’s rep told us she “does not comment on Katy’s personal life.”

Giabiconi is a face of Chanel and has been described by Karl Lagerfeld as “a boy version of Gisele Bündchen: skinny, skinny but with an athletic body — good for clothes and great with no clothes.” Perry clearly agrees.

There’s just so much information packed into that story, right? Of course he’s the “boy version of Gisele” – they both have slim hips and both are sexually attracted to Tom Brady. And, “When it comes to having a real-hot man to escort her around, you can’t go wrong with Baptiste Giabiconi” – the operative word being “escort”. So it’s obvious to me that Baptiste’s rep is really trying to make this happen in a big way – perhaps to get Baptiste more exposure in America, and more work internationally? But why is Katy going along with it?

Maybe she’s not. Us Weekly reports that Katy and Baptiste traveled together from London to Paris earlier this week on the Eurostar (the train), but an “observer” says that they just looked like friends, not lovers: “They were all chatting away like best friends – looking at magazines, looking out the window, just relaxing. They just looked like two people traveling with a group of friends.” So maybe Katy just found her new gay BFF?

    The dress is OK but the hair has got to go!

  2. too bad says:

    I feel sorry for her
    she’s just sooooo plain jane and unattractive

    she’s trying so hard to be egdy

    it’s just not working

    • Naye in VA says:

      i think shes pretty, she just seems empty. i think i said this before lol. there is nothing behind the eyes to lead me to believe she is this exciting, diffirent and edgy person she is trying to be. As much as Zooey Deschanel annoys me, at least you can look in her eyes and tell that is actually her personality.

      • cbear says:

        I agree. She’s a try-too-hard. She doesn’t have a super great voice though, so I guess she figures she’s gotta cover that up with this “fun” schtick that’s she’s got going on.

      • sandy says:

        She does seem like a soul-less girl; like, she’s just a robot doing what is told or expected of her. btw, I am so over that blue hair of hers, omg, I just want to get a box of dye and color over it. She could look so much better.

      • P says:

        That’s it, she’s just pretty. There’s nothing else to it, just a pretty ordinary girl. I don’t think it’s her fault though, HW isn’t a good place to be.

  3. AudreyS says:

    Oh God, they both seem so vacuous and superficial. I love the quote the they are “looking at magazines, looking out the window, just relaxing.” It’s scary to imagine their conversation.

  4. Ming says:

    Personally I find the Echo award show more offending than Katy Perry. It’s so bloody meaningless, it’s not even funny anymore.

    But thanks for stopping by Katy, I appreciate it.

  5. Micki says:

    I like her dress.It’s a booze and party dress and no office attire

  6. TXCinderella says:

    God, I wish she would stop with the weird stuff. I liked it much better when she was dressing like a pin-up girl and putting her own spin on it. Now she just looks stupid. She has the talent, so she should leave the weird costumes to Gaga and Nikki Minaj.

    • lanster says:

      I agree!! This by the way is a blatant rip off of not one but 2 different dresses that GaGa wore to the EMA’s she needs to stick to her OWN style!!

  7. Diana says:

    LOVE the dress. But the hair… ugh!
    Also, LOL @ that pic of hers with Lana. Looks like Katy just spat in Lana’s face.

  8. paola says:

    I can’t wait for the moment where she’ll starting messing with her face.

  9. Mia says:

    Lana del Rey is also giving her a “WTF?” look…and Baptiste is Uncle Karl’s boyfriend, so….totally gay!

    • elvyn says:

      For fsake, Baptiste is not gay. Karl is asexual now because his biggest lover is DEAD D E A D! Everybody who follow fashion in France know that.

  10. Marianne says:

    Love the dress, but not crazy about the hairdo.

  11. The blue hair really suits her. I think she looks good here.

  12. lucy2 says:

    Yeah, that’s totally a PR move by his rep. So blatantly obvious!

  13. nina says:

    I wish she’d just go away for a year and give us a breather. I feel like she’s constantly barraging us with her mediocrity.

  14. lanster says:

    hate do do this but i have to, this dress is a complete 100% copy of what lady gaga wore to the EMA awards GaGa wore two different versions of this and sat very close to katy perry, her hair is also stolen from gaga. It’s okay to borrow here and there but I feel like Katy Perry has been trying to prove that she’s just as fahion forward and out there as GaGa is. It’s so obvious. Doesn’t really matter ,but I wish Katy would just do her own damn thing!

  15. Jover says:

    Of course she’s vapid and mediocre; i don’t think she even graduated from high school; read her interview from the ROlling Stone mag awhile ago; A class A space cadet; this is why i despise todays pop “stars” in addition to being mediocre and bland, they are the sum total of their handlers/pr/management teams creation, How boring is this – she sings awful songs and appears at useless “award” shows.

  16. Hanna says:

    Nice Cakey face…

  17. AMY says:

    I think she looks pretty, and I really did like her “Part Of Me” video. Call me crazy :)

  18. DetRiotGirl says:

    I love the dress, rip off or not. It’s time for the blue hair to retire though.

  19. Laura says:

    I’m sorry, I LOVE her look! The shiny blue hair, the shiny awesome dress = YES! It’s so fun!

  20. Candyland says:

    Smurf look’s gotta go. Lose it, lose it now!

  21. Luffy says:

    Ugh, I do not find her attractive anymore. I look at her face and I feel like she’s trying too hard to be unique or edgy. Seems like she’s a pretty girl with too much make up and clothes that don’t do much for her figure. This dress makes it look like she has a bit of a stomach.

  22. Orange Cone says:

    everyone’s katy’s bff… she’s THAT girl where you talk to her once and she’s all ‘oh we’re totally bffs’ and the other person’s like ‘whau?’ *side-eye

  23. Kim says:

    Fugly as always

  24. skuddles says:

    First thought…she’s got a toilet paper roll stuck to her head. That second pic of Katy looking so strained and gaunt with a very forced smile – she appears to be on the verge of burnout, or something not good…

  25. Katy Kopy Kat says:

    Gaga wore a similar thing at an award show where katy sat front row. http://iamboigenius.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/Lady-Gaga-Marry-The-Night-EMA.jpg

    katy has been copying a bunch of gaga looks. http://anthagio.com/post/19716944526

  26. Pammy says:

    Katy is so dead behind the eyes except for when she’s trying to crush Lana’s skull with her mind in the last pic. She should take that year off like she announced last year cause she looks straight up sick with something.

  27. saraq says:

    Am I the only one that thinks he is NOT attractive whatsoever?! His head… or there’s just… something wrong with his face… or his ears.

    • skuddles says:

      You’re not alone saraq. First thing I noticed was the serious case of wonk eye he’s got going on, but you’re right about the ears too – they’re rather spocky.

  28. hmm says:

    that closeup photo, third from the bottom just says BIG DUMB PUPPY. LOL derp da derrr

  29. Joey Sauer says:

    Um Katy blatantly just copied Gaga’s look from the 2011 EMA’s. It’s undeniably obvious. See the two side-by-side here:
