What a perfect person to place as the new face of Moschino!? The thirty year old pop star revealed that she is the new face of Moschino when she posted a nineties inspired photo on Instagram. She was wearing a gold lamé brallete, a black pencil skirt and gold chains as she poses seductively with her hand on her hip in the ad she shared with her 21.6 million Instagram followers on Wednesday. ‘THE FACE OF MOSCHINO,’ she captioned image. Within an hour of being shared, the photo had already received more than 175,000 likes.
Although it’s not surprising that Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott named Katy the new face of his brand. The two are close friends, and Katy has a history of wearing his designs. And it’s clear that she is a fan of the outfit she is modeling in the new ad. In April, Katy wore the gold quilted bra and patchwork denim dungarees, which match the jacket featured in the ad, to the Moschino party at the Coachella Music Festival. But instead of gold chains, she donned massive hoop earrings.
Last month, Katy flaunted her cleavage on the Met Ball red carpet in a bold Moshino gown that featured graffiti print on its black fabric, topping off the ensemble with matching gloves and a Moschino spray paint can for a handbag.
The pair have teamed up for many important moments in their lives.
While Jeremy designed Katy’s looks for her Super Bowl halftime show, the singer strutted down the runway for the debut of his fall 2014 collection, his first one for the Italian fashion house.
Jeremy told Elle that the two met in 2008 when he was attending an event in Los Angeles with Lindsay Lohan. According to the designer, Katy walked right up to him and introduced herself and ‘she said: “Hi, I’m a singer and you’re my favorite designer. One day, I hope to wear your things onstage. My name is Katy Perry.”‘
It has already been a big week for Katy. Yesterday, her Dark Horse video became the third video ever, and the first by a female singer, to reach one billion views. ‘Guys. Wut. Dark Horse has reached 1 BILLION views?! I seriously [love] ur balls & ur fingers for dem clicks [sic],’ she tweeted in response to the news.
