Katy Perry's Coronation Concert gown is likened to a TOFFEE PENNY
‘Paying respects to UK by dressing as a Quality Street!’ Katy Perry’s Coronation Concert gown is likened to a TOFFEE PENNY by tickled viewers
She put on a breathtaking show at Sunday night’s Coronation concert.
Yet Katy Perry’s choice of outfit put her renditions of Firework and Roar paired with incredible staging in the dark a little – as viewers were distracted by her dress.
The singer, 38, looked incredible in a gold lamé Vivienne Westwood gown, which was compared – rather hilariously – to a Quality Street Toffee Penny.
The iconic gold sweet from Mackintosh’s beloved selection box of treats is wrapped in gold foil layered beneath clear plastic and was undeniably quite similar to Katy’s plunging gown, which featured a full skirt and structured top.
Viewers took to Twitter to pen: ‘Katy Perry / Quality Street Toffee Penny… i guess katy perry dug into the quality street box for this dress…
