After months of hinting at a fashion rebirth thanks to more mature and sophisticated red carpet looks, Katy Perry confirmed our suspicions: The rainbow wigs, cupcake bras and cartoon-style costumes that are synonymous with the pop superstar are gone forever. "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, a new beginning is a must!" Katy tweeted before sharing the latest teaser for her new single "Roar."
The clip (below) is set at a funeral. Katy's peppermint dress sits on top of a casket and two fans in bright purple wigs are crying, but Katy just slyly smirks at the camera. This marks the second teaser the star has released to promote her upcoming song and album Prism. In the first she set her blue wig on fire, so Katy has made it loud and clear that she's leaving her Candy Land days behind her.
While we're positive this new edgier and darker chapter of her career will be anything but boring, we're going to miss the star's technicolor, candy-coated bubble gum fashion statements. Though instead of mourning the loss of Katy's over-the-top style, we're going to celebrate by looking back at some of Katy's most memorable and fun looks — may they rest in peace.
