In pictures: Katy Perry's style evolution
From tomboyish teen, to retro rockstar all the way through to 2017's grown up, alternative glam, pop star Katy Perry has taken us with her on a veritable style journey. We've been lucky enough to see her reinvent her style perfectly again and again, every time more seamless than the next and every time we are pleasantly surprised by her newest hairstyles and looks.
Not only has Katy's sound changed immensely over the years, but she's managed Madonna style reinventions to go along with it. Her life has been a whirlwind of success, artistic expression and relationships, and she has been candid with her audience about her ups and downs. These life changes always seem to be marked with a phoenix-like reinvention, marking an 'out with the old, in with the new' mentality. This is possibly one of the reasons for Katy's massive success both on and off the charts. So, let's take a look at the evolution in question from the very begining up until 2017.
