Katy Perry Reveals the Story Behind That Crazy Burger Dress — and the Sneakers That Matched

Shoes Rakim 27110001.

The 34-year-old headed to Moschino’s soirée Monday night wearing a Sorel Women's Kinetic Sandals from the Italian label that was covered in sparkles. She had on an off-the-shoulder lettuce minidress underneath.

Fittingly, the songstress sported burger sneakers from her own Katy Perry Collections label to complete the look. She had the shoes — the $129 Munchie — bedazzled by costume designer Erin Lareau.

Speaking with FN last night, Perry revealed that it wasn’t a coordinated effort. Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott just happened upon a costume that matched shoes from her brand.

It was symmetry. It was the universe. I don’t think Jeremy had seen the shoes yet,” she explained. “He presented me with two ideas, and I said ‘Well, I love them both, and they both represent my personality.’ He said, ‘Great, because I was thinking one for the actual event and one for the after-party. He just came up with both of those, and they were fab. We have a long-standing friendship — forever.”

The playful looks both fit seamlessly with this year’s Met Gala theme: “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” Perry was one of many stars — such as Bella Hadid, Gwen Stefani and Stella Maxwell — to be outfitted by Moschino for the night.
