Katy Perry channels the flapper girl look at LA music awards

The singer chose a 1920s-inspired outfit to attend the City Of Hope Spirit of Life Awards 2012 in Los Angeles

It’s one of spring’s hottest trends that’s only set to get bigger next season, with Katy Perry the latest celeb to give the flapper girl look a go.

The superstar singer wore a 1920s-inspired ensemble from head-to-toe to attend the City of Hope Spirit of Life Awards 2012 in Los Angeles as the music and entertainment body honoured Bob Pittman, the founder of MTV.

Katy chose a copper-hued silk dress with slinky spaghetti straps, and lace and jewel detailing on the chest for her latest red carpet ensemble, which she accessorised with a pair of embellished pumps and a pearl necklace.

But the flapper girl look didn’t end there. The pop star also wore her purple hair in soft Marcel waves held in place with a bejwelled headband, dramatic Jazz Age make-up and a feather in her hand.

Other famous faces attending the event, held at the The Geffen Contemporary at The Museum of Contemporary Art, included TV and radio host Ryan Seacrest and The Voice UK judge Will.i.am.

Katy has obviously been swotting up on her designer trends, as flapper girl style was seen all over the spring/summer 2012 catwalks at the likes of Gucci, Ralph Lauren and Etro, with the look set to get even bigger with the release of the Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan-starring big screen adaptation of The Great Gatsby in December.
