Katy Perry is a Barbie girl living in a Barbie world. The “Harleys in Hawaii” singer put on her best sparkly pink dress and matching mauve glam earlier this week, and she looked like a total angel.

The former American Idol judge donned a beautiful hot pink gown featuring a bedazzled top with a square neckline and spaghetti straps and a figure-hugging skirt with feather details all over. Makeup artist Michael Anthony paired the beautiful dress with a sparkly rosy eyeshadow, peachy-pink blush, sleek eyebrows, dramatic false lashes and a super shimmery champagne highlighter.

The 13-time Grammy-nominated artist accessorized with dangly diamond earrings, a tennis bracelet, several silver rings and baby pink fishnet heels, unlike any footwear we’ve ever seen before.

The 39-year-old posed for an up-close-and-personal pic, making a heart shape with her hands in the cover snap. In a subsequent photo, the Southern California native showed off her impeccable figure and toned arms.

“sending you 💓,” she captioned a carousel shared with her 207 million followers.

“We 💖 u Queen 👸,” Tim & Rod commented.

“Feeling it 💕,” Marsha Molinari added.

“Perfection 😍,” Elnaz Golrakh complimented.

“God is a woman 💘” one person chimed.

“pink is SO for you,” another declared.

Several fans asked when Perry’s next album is coming out … and whether these sweet photos could be the cover art or foreshadow some feminine, girl-bop vibes on the record. She released her debut album in 2001, and her most recent sixth studio project, Smile, came out in 2020.
