Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, or popularly known as Katy Perry, has always been one of the trendiest stars in Hollywood. She is known as someone who loves to experiment with her looks. With her stunning frame, glossy locks, and charming personality, the “Dark Horse” singer has captured many hearts for almost a decade by producing hit songs and lending her voice in popular animation movies like Smurfs and Smurfs 2.

It was just a week ago that her latest makeover was disclosed. The pop star was seen sporting blonde hair! Pop Art artist and friend, Sham Ibrahim, posted a picture on his Instagram account of the two posing for the camera at his most recent art exhibit.

Dressed in a black outfit with gem dots, silver earrings and matching necklace, the “Last Friday Night” singer looked charming at the event. She also sported a brown watch, knee-high boots, glasses, and a tiny nose pin. Her friend chose to flaunt a grey fur coat, a colorful hairdo with bright lip color, and extra-volume lashes. He wore black boots and an all-white skirt and blazer combo for his event. The photo also appeared on People magazine’s web site. Ibrahim thanked them and captioned the pic, “Thank u people I love people http://people.com/style/katy-perry-goes-blonde-orlando-bloom-birthday/.”

Sham Ibrahim, who is a well-known artist, unveiled his portrait of the POTUS at the World of Wonder’s “Surviving Trump: The Art of Resistance“ in Palm Springs on January 14, 2017. Perry, who is on the opposition of newly elected president, Donald Trump, also took the opportunity to unveil the portrait with Ibrahim.

The mocking portrait shows an animated drawing of Trump as a diaper-clad toddler, playing with an American-flag cutout of the U.S. The hilarious depiction of Trump reigning as president caught many celebrities’ eyes at the event. However, Perry’s blonde hair also got plenty of attention!

The almost impossible-to-miss, double-toned blonde hair color is something Katy Perry has rarely been seen with in the past. A lover of dark shades, Perry has always stuck with black and browns. On some occasions, she had baby pink, lavender, green, and even sky blue hair color.

This isn’t the first time she has opted for a blonde mane. She flaunted blonde hair back in 2011, but the new look is unique, and complimented her skin tone. The color has yellow-white roots starting at the base with warm, golden strands along the length. It also has tinges of orange with a bleached blonde streak that runs down from the center of her hair.

Katy Perry took to Instagram to show her new hairdo and posted this picture with Gloria Steinem. She captioned it, “Today a feminist got her wings. Thank you @gloriasteinem ❤??”

Many fans also looked at Perry’s new beauty trend as a way of mocking Donald Trump, while others simply praised the “Fireworks” singer for her dramatic look for the event. It was rumored that Katy Perry left the event a little early to be with her boyfriend, Orlando Bloom, at his surprise 40th birthday party. Perry was also seen at the Women’s March in Washington on January 21, 2017, which was also the first day of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration.

Katy Perry’s Best Looks

The “California Gurls” singer’s Instagram account is anything but average. One look and your will know her latest outfits, striking hairdos, and even juicy insights about her everyday life. However, the glamorous stars’ uploads can surely teach us a thing or two about dressing flawlessly and carrying it off with perfection.

Katy Perry recently uploaded a picture on her Instagram account of her at the Children’s Hospital ‘Once Upon A Time’ event in Los Angeles. She looked exquisite wearing a champagne-colored mesh dress with shimmer detailing. The long, off-shoulder gown had a fishtail bottom with layers of mesh ruffles, which added drama and poise to her look for the evening. She sported a top-knot bun, burnt-orange neckpiece, chandelier-style glass earrings, and a rose lip shade. Perry captioned the pic, “Felt like a fairy godmother last night in @marchesafashion for @childrensla.”

Here is another post from Perry’s Instagram account where she’s performing on stage wearing a lavender and gold warrior princess-inspired outfit, complete with thigh-high boots in the same color. She tied her hair back in a long ponytail as she sung some of her best hits. The star chose smoky eyes and a hot pink lipstick shade for the night. Her caption read, “…it’s just like riding a bike LIMA 9.22.15 @ronyalwin.” The Instagram upload received about 700,000 likes and more than 13,000 comments from all of her friends, fans, and followers.

The story behind Katy Perry’s changing hairdos and hair colors has been closely linked to her relationship with partner, Orlando Bloom. Initially, they both started off with the same hair color, and as sparks of romance began to fly, they both opted for dark hair. Perry took it one step further at the Met Ball, where she darkened it one shade darker, while Bloom’s stayed pretty much the same. Orlando Bloom then chose to go blonde in September, and now Katy Perry has finally taken a step in the same direction, probably owing to her trend-setting beau’s changing styles.
