5 Outfits We Hope Katy Perry Wears at the Super Bowl
It should come as a shocker to no one that Katy Perry goes a little nuts when it comes to dressing up for performances. She has yet to rock a dress made of meat (though she has rocked a pizza-patterned onesie), but it’s safe to say that the pop star is giving Lady Gaga a run for her money in the costume department. As the featured performer for this year’s Super Bowl, we’re guessing it’s safe to say that Perry is going to make some jaws drop with her outfits. It’s pretty much impossible to predict what she’ll show up in — let’s just say a dress made entirely out of miniature footballs probably isn’t out of the question — but that doesn’t mean we won’t try. Here are five looks we’ve already seen from the pop star that we hope she *tops* in a big, BIG way come February 1st.
1. Can’t Ignore My Tech: We’ve seen Katy wear clothes glowing with LED lights and shimmering with hologram fabrics, but we want her to get really high-tech with her Super Bowl get up. We’re talking an animatronic, 3D-printed, noise-reacting dress (yes, things like this exist). Just imagine the collar of her top expanding as she hits all the highs of “Roar” and her dress changing hues when the crowd cheers. (Photo via Timur Emek/Getty)
2. Get Up in My Grill: Sure Katy’s got to engage an entire stadium, but she’s also got to pander to the crowd at home. We love the idea of a camera-catching grill that sends a secret message to couch surfers only. (Photo via Jamie McCarthy/Getty)
3. Team Perry: Katy’s dressed the part of player, so we’d like to see her switch roles as cheerleader for her halftime spectacular — after all, who better to amp up crowd? We’re imagining move-for-move “Mickey” choreography with hunky backup dancers sporting “Team Perry” jerseys. (Photo via Ethan Miller/Getty)
4. I Love the ’90s: We can’t lie, our favorite “Katy” had to be “throwback Katy” and while we’ve seen her make her mark on pinup styles and ’80s hair, we’ve yet to see ’90s teen Katy in her full, angsty glory on stage. What does that scene look like? We’d say Angela Chase-red hair for sure, inflatable furniture everywhere and legions of Delia’s-looking models in the mosh pit. (Photo via Timur Emek/Getty)
5. Icon Status: Katy floored us when she shows up to the VMAs paying homage to one of the most important red carpet moments in history: Britney and Justin in head-to-toe denim. We’re hoping she takes her cheeky tribute to the field by spoofing one of the Superbowls most notorious duos: Janet Jackson and her wardrobe malfunction. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
