After donning all sorts of over-the-top costumes at her concerts during her world tour, Katy Perry was decidedly more toned-down at the premiere of “Katy Perry: The Prismatic World Tour” at the Ace Hotel in LA on Thursday.
The 30-year-old pop star wore a business-like Balenciaga tuxedo dress with black satin lapels and oversized buttons. Her raven hair was swept up, and her makeup was kept clean and somber-hued. But the seriousness seemed to have stopped there because Katy rocked some pretty hardcore accessories, including heavy metal ear piercings, a huge lilac stone ring, and sparkly glitter nail polish on her fingers and toes. Of course, we can’t forget Katy’s fab lace-up boots — check out those corset-style lacings that went all the way up her legs.

Katy showed off so many gorgeous accessories, but she had one more that she saved for last: her Cavapoo dog, Butters. When the caramel-colored pup joined the performer on the pink carpet, it stole our attention away from her shoes, which is saying a lot! Butters even stole attention away from Katy Perry herself, only giving its human a sloppy kiss on the lips as some sort of consolation.
