Interview has a way of totally transforming its cover stars, like when it turned Anne Hathaway into an uber glamorous fashion vampire.
The latest style metamorphosis? Katy Perry, who headlines the art and culture mag's March 2012 issue (see a fuzzy, leaked version below).
If not for the giant headline, we probably wouldn't have recognized the popstar, who seems to have ditched her bronzed skin and blue hair for a dramatically chic makeover.
Between the cat-eyes and the dark, teased-up hair, Perry looks like a chic cross between Amy Winehouse and Megan Fox, non?
But fashion inspirations aside, we're guessing the intended theme was simply: eat your heart out, Russell Brand.
The March 2012 issue of Interview, featuring fashion faves Franca Sozzani, Christoper Kane and Sarah Burton, should hit newsstands soon. In the meantime, take a peek at Katy below... do you like her drastically different look?
UPDATE: The actual cover is out -- see a non-fuzzy, official pic below.
