Katy Perry glows during coronation concert
Katy Perry put on a show for the royal family on Sunday evening.
Katy Perry put on a show on Sunday evening for King Charles III’s coronation concert, wearing a custom Vivienne Westwood metallic-gold gown that shimmered with every step she took.
The gown was an 18th-century-inspired homage to baroque fashions, complete with a sculpted bodice and billowing skirt, inspired by the fashion house’s 2006 spring/summer Gold Label collection. She wore the dress with golden cherub earrings.
Perry performed her songs ‘Firework’ and ‘Roar’ to the delight of the audience that included the newly crowned King and Queen of England.
Katy Perry’s powerful ode to the king
Perry dedicated ‘Firework’ to King Charles, saying, “Thank you for bringing out the firework in so many young people.”
Meanwhile, her performance of ‘Roar’ included drones forming the shape of a lion in the sky above the stage, in an homage to King Charles’ coat of arms. She performed the song with a full orchestra.
Perry was also a guest at the coronation ceremony itself, wearing another Vivienne Westwood ensemble, consisting of a soft leather monochromatic lavender ensemble with a button-up blouse and pencil skirt, opera gloves, and mesh fascinator.
She accessorized with the British fashion house’s Granny Frame Pearl Handbag and Row Pearl Bas Relief Choker.
The ‘California Gurls’ singer was memeified when she was seen having trouble finding her seat at the ceremony.
She joined fans in the fun by tweeting, “don’t worry guys i found my seat.”
She later nearly fell when it started to rain and the concrete became slippery outside Westminster Abbey.
Her excitement at celebrating the coronation
Perry expressed her excitement to perform at the concert, which she considered an honor as an ambassador to King Charles’ charity, the British Asian Trust.
“As a mother, I know firsthand that these innocent children need help, they need to be saved. I’m going there as an ambassador, and he asked me to sing, and it all aligned,” she said in a statement.
“I’m just so grateful to be asked for these moments and that I have the songs to, I think, support them,” Perry told Access Hollywood during a recent interview.
“It’s all about the songs at the end of the day.”
