Katy Perry's Married Girl Style, From Kooky Pop Star To Elegant Wife (PHOTOS)

We poured out a little bit of Katy Perry's perfume yesterday after news broke that Russell Brand was filing for divorce from the pop star, citing irreconcilable differences.

When Katy first hit the scene with her controversial song "I Kissed A Girl (And I Liked It)" in 2009, her kooky style garnered her almost as much attention as her risque lyrics. Performing next to giant pieces of fruit (including a phallic banana or two) in bedazzled strawberry costumes, Katy embodied the spirit -- and image -- of youthful California bubblegum pop.

But after Katy, then 25, married Russell Brand on October 23, 2010, she seemed to grow up a tad, gradually trading more of her flouncy minidresses for long evening gowns by the likes of Vivienne Westwood. Her wedding gown was even Elie Saab.

Katy's hair changed, too: when she first married Russell, she forsook her wild pink and blue hair hues for some more natural dark curls. As the year went on, however, Katy went pink (and then blonde!) again. (A sign that she was reclaiming her independent girl spirit?)

We're super curious about where Katy's style will go now that she'll soon be a single girl again. But for now, check out our slideshow of Katy's 14 months of (more demure!) married style below.
