Rachel Levy and Carolyn Hiblen, journalists for the MailOnline, reported on Katy Perry’s promise to give her best impression on the red carpet at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards in LA. They also included a video that can be viewed by scrolling down.
Britney Spears gave her friend, Katy Perry, a thumbs up for her unique tribute during the 2014 MTV VMAs on Sunday. Britney tweeted, expressing her admiration for Katy’s fashion choice and praising her for bringing back the denim dress trend. The singer ended her tweet with a term of endearment, “bb,” and complimented Katy on her overall amazing look for the event.
Game on! Katy and hip-hop artist Riff Raff paid homage to Britney Spears and her former partner Justin Timberlake by donning matching outfits as they made their entrance at the awards ceremony held in Inglewood, California.
What an eerie coincidence! Katy Perry and Riff Raff pulled off a fantastic imitation of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s iconic matching outfits from the 2001 American Music Awards. Although people were initially discussing their clothing choice, many soon shifted their focus to their relationship status. There were rumors in the past that the pop star was dating Riff Raff, whose real name is Horst Simco, but this pairing seemed unlikely. Nevertheless, the two of them made quite the spectacle as they strutted down the red carpet together. Later in the evening, TMZ caught up with them as they left Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills. When asked if they were officially together, Riff Raff responded with a playful quip about having a couple of babies on the way.
“I tried to imitate her style, hope you like it!” Katy attempted to replicate the iconic 2001 look of the 32-year-old and was met with a positive response. The latter was flattered and impressed by the effort put into their appearance.
Dressed to impress: Despite being a bit cheesy at the time, the couple’s coordinated outfits have since been recognized as iconic. After her partner assisted her into their vehicle, Katy mimicked the famous love scene from Titanic by pressing her hand against the tinted window. With a delicate tone, she proclaimed “I love him,” while her significant other revealed that they both had matching scars. To complete her look, Katy wore a bold statement necklace and carried a small denim purse embellished with sparkling accents. Her two-toned denim attire was more daring and provocative than the blonde singer’s outfit, featuring a seductive thigh-high slit and adorned with silver studs.
Adding some sizzle: Katy Perry’s take on the outfit was more alluring, featuring a daring thigh-high slit and embellished with studs.
The rapper Riff Raff was seen flaunting his tough look wearing a denim blazer adorned with metal studs and chains. He paired it with ripped jeans and a metallic blouse. To add more drama to her appearance, singer Dark Horse donned a crimson lipstick and styled her thick brown hair in a voluminous hairdo. Interestingly, Riff Raff’s attire bore some resemblance to that of the former ‘N Sync star, with a jean blazer and denim pants paired with sunglasses. However, his costume had a punk and grunge-inspired touch, featuring tattered and studded pieces.
They seemed to be relishing every moment of their walk on the red carpet.
I’ll hold my ground right here… Riff Raff didn’t mind stepping back while Katy was captured on camera.
Woohoo! They did it! The dynamic duo appeared to be overjoyed with their triumphant ensembles. The vocalist of Dolce & Gabbana adorned himself with chains, a metallic top, a belt identical to Katy’s, and navy dress shoes. He chose not to wear a denim hat like JT did many moons ago so that he could flaunt his vibrant braided hair, but he did arrive at the event holding one in his hand. The couple appeared thrilled to display their outfits as they posed together on the red carpet and inside the venue.

Britney then challenged Katy to do her best impression within 24 hours. Katy readily accepted and promised to show her impression on the red carpet at the VMA’s the next day.
