Celebrity perfumes are a dime a dozen these days. In fact, they're so commonplace that stars like Katy Perry and Mariah Carey have multiple fragrances to their name. Though we doubt Katy'll make it to Mariah's 12-scent tally anytime soon -- the "California Girl" would rather expand her empire in another direction.
Katy's third fragrance, Killer Queen, launched in May. The pop star spoke to Women's Wear Daily this week about the new perfume, her affinity for beauty products... and the prospect of expanding into apparel. Now that she's got a Vogue cover to call her own, fashion seems like it might be an imminent development.
"I would like to [branch into fashion], but this circus act can only juggle so many balls," Katy told the trade. "It's to be determined, but we'll see how it goes. It's a long process, and I want to find the right place for me." Then she divulged her clothing inspirations:
There are a lot of people I really look up to in fashion — [like] Alice + Olivia and The Row — and I like that price range, too. I love what Victoria Beckham did, but I also have to figure out with myself what actually is the market I want to be in. Is it a high fashion market or is it an accessible market? Nothing is [currently] being created; there aren't even sketches on the table, nor a contract."
Well, we're glad Perry's taking the design process seriously. Perhaps the notorious style chameleon isn't yet sure which of her various looks she'd like to spin out into a major collection. Would she design embellished bras? Cozy sweaters? Crop tops? Tiaras? Clearly, Katy's gotta spend a lot of time at the drawing board.
Hey, at least she's getting the fashion ball rolling (even if she hasn't figured out how to juggle it just yet). Let's just hope a Katy clothing line will be a bit more unique than the Olsen collection she references. Are you excited for an upcoming Katy Perry clothing line?
Killer Queen, indeed:
