The Scoop on Katy Perry's Bedazzled Diesel 'Daisy Dukes'

In her hit single “California Gurls,”  Katy Perry declares “daisy dukes with a bikini on top” the signature uniform of the song’s namesake vixens. And given the star’s own daring fashion sense,  it’s no surprise that the short-shorts she dons with her cupcake-inspired bikini top in the just-debuted music video aren’t just any old cut-offs, but a custom-embellished pair courtesy of Italian denim house Diesel. The star explains to, “Diesel made me those shorts, which is really cool. They bedazzled the whole daisy dukes.” With help from Perry’s stylist Johnny Wujek, Diesel encrusted their indigo-blue-washed Mintha 8B3 style with 7,000 blue and gray Swarovski crystals. Perry–no stranger to bejeweled accessories–was so thrilled with the blinged-out results, she posted a Twitpic of the denim shorts-shorts, Tweeting, “don’t be jelly about the custom Diesel daisy dukes!” And best news of all: You don’t have to be! If you’re handy with a glue-gun, you can score your own pair of (unembellished) Minthas ($160) at and do the bedazzling yourself. –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

I love the shorts. It’s the hair and top that I don’t like.

Laura on

Katy a pretty girl with a great figure. She can totally pull off wearing those shorts, but her top and her hair make her look like a moron.

Jon on

Very nice!

Morgan on

Is there anything more ridiculous than “gurls”? I don’t think so.

Foofoo on

Why does she insist on looking like helen kellar is her stylist? She’s absolutely gorgeous with a killer body, but i’m sorry, whomever tells her she looks good, they lied. She looks like a cartoon.

Bonnie on

I think it’s hilarious that she looks like a playboy oompa loompa! That skin! That hair! LMAO. Seriously, this girl should fire her spray-tanner. I love her crazy fashion sense, though.

Lee on

Playboy Oompa loompa is right LOL

giambo on

watch the video before you comment…

Sure on

Definitely, not my style, but cute on her. The top is a bit silly though. There is nothing sexy about it.
