Katy Perry graces the cover of InStyle magazine’s October 2011 issue wearing an Emanuel Ungaro dress and sporting bright pink hair. Inside, she discusses her red carpet style, how she stands her ground, and how her makeup is applied while she sleeps.
On her red carpet style: “I kind of use this inner dial: Either I turn it up or down.”
On learning how to stand her ground to get what she wants: “I’m not going to sit and be steamrolled,” she says. “I am full of unicorns and Care Bears 99 percent of the time, but don’t open Pandora’s Box of that other 1 percent—because it’s there!”
On how her makeup is applied while she sleeps: “I ordered a special chair from the dentist so I can lie back and wake up looking like a million bucks—I call it my Sleeping Beauty makeup.”
