Katy Perry Wears Photos of Manchester Victims on Her Dress During Emotional Performance at Manchester Benefit Concert

A-list performers took the stage at Ariana Grande’s Manchester benefit concert on Sunday to show their love and support for the victims of the deadly terror attack on Manchester Arena last month, bringing some solace to the crowds through their songs and powerful messages of resilience. But one performer, Katy Perry, paid tribute in another creative way— by wearing an outfit covered in photos of the victims.

The singer wore a white long-sleeve mini dress that featured photos of the 22 victims along the collar, bottom of the sleeves and formed the shape of a heart across the back of the dress. She added a feathered Sonia Rykiel cape to the look and white stacked-heel boots.

During her time on stage Perry asked the audience to shout “I love you” to one another before singing her hit, “Part of Me.” She also told concert goers, “It’s not always easy to choose love, right?…

Katy Perry Wore a Dress Covered in Photos of the Manchester Victims During the One Love Benefit Concert

Katy Perry added a unique touch to her look for the One Love Manchester Benefit concert on Sunday.

The 32-year-old donned a white, long-sleeve Sonia Rykiel dress adorned with photos of the victims of the May 22 Manchester attack at Ariana Grande‘s concert, which killed 22 people and left dozens more injured.

The photos covered her collar and wrists, but most noticeably, formed the shape of a heart that draped across her back.

But more than just the powerful message she rocked in her look, Katy delivered a powerful performance to go along with it.

She took the stage and gave a short speech, saying, “It’s not easy to always choose love, is it? Especially in moments like these, right? But love conquers fear, and love conquers hate, and this love that you choose will give you strength. It’s our greatest power.”

The singer then performed an acoustic version of her 2010 hit “Part of Me” and followed it up…

5 things you should know about Pippa Middleton’s wedding

Not Released (NR)
Pippa Middleton and James Matthews snapped last summer while watching a Wimbledon match.

Near-royal nuptial fever is spiking. Wedding bells are set to ring on Saturday for Pippa Middleton, 33, and banking biggie James Matthews, 41 — and everybody wants to know what Kate Middleton’s little sister’s dress looks like. Frilly and fairy tale-y? A train? What?

So far, who’s creating the gown and the style is still a mystery — and unless some leaky blabbermouth (Donald Trump, perhaps?) spills the beans, it’s apt to stay that way.

Here’s what we know about the dress and the day.

Lovely, low-key, local — that’s the name of the game for Pippa Middleton’s wedding at St. Marks Church in Englefield, England.

Gown and out

British designer Giles Deacon is rumored to be one who’s creating Pippa’s frocktacular wedding dress, according to E! Why? He visited her with a garment bag. Known for having an artistic and adventurous eye, he’s dressed stars like Kate Hudson, Solange and Diana Agron.

For 60th Anniversary, Great-Grandma Tries On Wedding Dress And It Fits

Sixty years after her wedding, Janith Goedde still fits into the dress she wore when she married her husband Joe back on May 11, 1957 in Haubstadt, Indiana.

On April 30, the Goeddes were gathering with family and friends to celebrate their upcoming 60th anniversary when someone jokingly mentioned that Janith should try on her wedding dress, which had been sitting up in the attic for years.

“She recently lost 40 pounds and it definitely shows!” the couple’s granddaughter Alison, 23, told HuffPost. “So after the 60th anniversary celebration, they went back to their house with a few of the family members. She had the dress in her attic upstairs so one of her kids went and got it and she tried it on.”

How to Dress to Make a Great Impression Before You Speak in the Interview

Interviews can be daunting at the best of times, so doing what we can to be more confident internally will help us shine and give the best impression to our potential employer.

How we dress is a fundamental way to gain confidence within – if we know we look the part, then we’ll also feel the part. Apart from preparing sufficiently, what we wear is the key to showing we mean business and giving ourselves the best opportunity to score that dream job.

You Only Have 10 Seconds to Make a Great First Impression – What You Wear Matters the Most

First impressions can have a huge impact, especially when it comes to job interviews. According to a study conducted by associate professor of psychology at Oregon State University, Frank Bernieri,1 the first 10 seconds of meeting the interviewer is crucial because in this short time they’ve already decided whether you’d be right for the job or not, depending on how you present yourself, so what you wear has a big initial impact on your chances.

In psychological terms, it comes down to the phenomenon that if a person sees a desirable trait in another, then they automatically assume that the person has further desirable traits. In other words, wearing an appropriate outfit will create a halo effect and cause the interviewer to continue seeing you in a positive light for the duration of the interview – even going as far as dismissing any minor mistakes that you make.

What to Wear to Make Sure You Won’t Lose the Job Chance

Here is a guide to what different outfits both men and women can wear to make that first impression a professional and positive one.

Suit

The most common, go-to outfit for a man is always going to be the suit. Investing in a well-tailored suit will go toward making a great impression every time. Try to go for dark colors such as navy, black, or dark grey in order to give a solid look. You may consider a fitted waistcoat underneath to give an even better impression of effort and confidence.

Shirt

When it comes to shirts, wearing solid colors is always a safe bet – white, grey, or blue. If you know a bit more about the company, or you feel confident in yourself, then going for low-patterned shirts such as a small check or subtle pinstripe will add a bit of personality and style. Try not to…

10+ Teens Who Wore Their Moms’ Vintage Prom Dresses Decades Later, And Absolutely Killed It

Choosing the perfect prom dress can be a stressful affair – unless, of course, your mom has a rocking one stashed away in her closet. More and more teens these days are donning their moms’ old frocks to the big night, and you know what? They look absolutely bomb.

We can’t even blame them for wanting to borrow. According to PromGirl, the leading online Prom dress retailer in the US, a prom night in 2017 can cost over $2000 in total! Mind you, this is only if you completely blow out on limo rentals, fancy dinner, and a professional photoshoot. But most prom tickets alone cost over $100, and a trendy dress can run up to 4 times as much. By reaching for your mom’s vintage vestments, you’re not only bringing chic retro styles back to life, but you’re saving yourself loads of money and hassle (and you just might overfill your mom’s heart with pride).

Most recently, a high school senior…

Ariel Winter Slams Critics Over Low-Cut Dress She Wore to ‘Modern Family’ Panel

Ariel Winter lashed out at haters who criticized the low-cut dress she wore to a Modern Family panel on Wednesday, May 3.

“Why TF does anyone care that I didn’t dress casual like everyone else for the panel?” the 19-year-old wrote on Instagram. “Why do I have to be like everyone else.”

Winter wore a glam, plunging minidress at the event, while her castmates mostly dressed down in jeans (even Sofia Vergara‘s monochromatic dress looked casual compared to Winter’s embellished frock).

“Why can’t people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want?” Winter, who plays Alex Dunphy on the ABC sitcom, continued. “WEAR WHATEVER YOU WANT PEOPLE! As long as you feel good about yourself that’s what matters. I know I did. Don’t ever let anyone stifle who you are and how you express yourself. Rant over :)”

It’s not the first time…

This Teen Wore The Same Dress Her Mom Wore To Prom 22 Years Ago

High school senior Ally Johnson honored her mom in a fashionable and nostalgic way by wearing her mother’s prom dress to her own prom, 22 years later.

Ally’s mom, Lori Johnson, wore a black dress embellished with silver glitter to her senior prom in 1995. On April 22, Ally wore the same dress to her senior prom as well. Ally told HuffPost the dress needed no alterations before the big night.

“It is very stretchy, which made it fit perfectly,” she said. “I was surprised because my mom had a very different build than I did when she was in high school.”

Lori Johnson and her daughter, Ally Johnson, wore the same dress to prom, 22 years apart.

Lori had suggested her dress to her daughter for past proms, but Ally was never interested in the idea. That changed this year when she ordered a dress online…

NEW YORK (AP) — A thunderous drumbeat echoed through the cocktail reception at the Met Gala. Either an earthquake was hitting the Upper East Side of Manhattan, or the glittering assembly of guests was being called in to dinner.

Hasan Minhaj, a correspondent on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” was standing with the show’s host, Trevor Noah, and marveling about the week he was having. Just two days earlier, he’d made a huge splash with his blistering speech at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and now he was at one of the most exclusive parties on the planet, rubbing shoulders (literally) with a ridiculous number of A-list celebrities, and getting praise for his performance.

“It’s been an insane week,” he said. “I keep thinking, what if the other night had gone poorly, what would tonight have been like?”

Like everyone, he was somewhat shell-shocked at the number of famous people present. He mentioned Matt Damon and Michael B. Jordan in particular, just two of hundreds of celebrities attending what often feels like a combination of the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys and Tonys, plus the worlds of fashion and sports.

The stars were packed so tightly together, in fact, that the major hazard of the evening seemed to be potential hem damage, from famous feet stepping inadvertently on long, delicate trains. Halle Berry, wearing a black-and-gold Atelier Versace jumpsuit, was one of those who had to stop and release her train from a stranger’s foot as she glided across the Carroll and Milton Petrie European Sculpture Court during cocktail hour.
