We knew Katy Perry was going to make some kind of statement on the Grammys red carpet. And she didn’t disappoint. The singer hit the carpet in a couture gown covered in music notes (appropriate!). The coolest part? It just hit the runway in Paris last week.

“It’s Valentino, and it’s musical for music’s biggest night,” she said of the sheer blush confection, which features black music notes on the skirt. The straight-off-the-catwalk gown debuted last week at Valentino’s couture fashion show in Paris. Perry wore the look exactly as the model did, even sweeping her hair back to show off the tulle-embellished neckline.

The star — who showed up without boyfriend John Mayer — also said she’s excited to perform tonight. “What is that called that Charlie Sheen said … ‘tiger blood.’ Tiger blood goes through my blood every time I sing ‘Roar,'” she shared.

What do you think of Perry’s dress? Did she hit a style high note?

I like Katy’s dress. Its unique without looking too gaudy. It’s pretty and fits the occasion. She stands out among the rest that’s for sure!

Looks better on the runway. Does not flatter her at all.

@Janet697 and Sacre,
You’re kidding right? Katy looks beautiful and way better than the corpse-like model. FYI, I wear a size 2 and wish I looked more like Katy. SHE looks healthy and not at all fat!
