With a new album comes a new look! The bold pop star broke out the bleach bottle for her latest style 180, and feminine takes on masculine fashion came with it (including plenty of pantsuits). Click through the gallery below to see her newest style statement.
Change was clearly afoot when Perry supported the Women's March on Washington while rocking her newly dyed blonde locks, which were partially covered by a lemon yellow beret, and a furry pink coat. "Today a feminist got her wings. Thank you @gloriasteinem," she captioned a photo of herself with the feminist icon on Jan. 21.
It took a few rounds to get Perry's strands from black to a near-white shade of blonde, but the process paid off when the hair chameleon officially debuted her latest 'do. "New life who dis," she captioned an ethereal shot on Instagram on Feb. 6, which coincided with a tweet confirming she would be performing at the 2017 GRAMMYs.
"It was important to portray this new image, especially at Katy's first red carpet upon releasing her new single," her stylist, Jamie Mizrahi, told Billboard. "There was less thinking about what had been done in the past and more thinking about the present and future. We wanted something that felt different and elevated."

"It's funny because when I designed the look, I wasn't thinking that, but then when she came out, [I thought] that's exactly what she is," the stylist later told The Hollywood Reporter. "I was so excited when that clicked in my head. I worked really hard on details and colors — there was no red or black allowed. From day one, I was like, she needs to be in white. I wanted her to stand out from the crowd."
As if her strands hadn't been through enough, Perry debuted yet another new hairstyle via her Instagram story on March 2: a very short, partially-shaved 'do that looked a whole lot like Miley Cyrus' now-famous chop.
