Can there be a more fitting dress for the Grammy Awards than Katy Perry’s musical-note-printed gown? Call it cliché, kitschy, or too literal, but we can’t think of a more perfect outfit for a music awards show than a music-themed dress.

And if there’s anyone who can pull it off, it’s Katy Perry. Here’s the gown as it was seen on the Valentino Spring 2014 couture catwalk:

And here it is on Katy, whose personality gave it a quirky vibe rather than the ethereal feel it had on the runway:

For such a perfect dress, however, it did have a couple of glaring imperfections.

For one, the neckline was way too tight on Katy Perry; it practically choked her and made the skin on her neck turn red.

Two, the sleeves were so restricting, Katy Perry couldn’t even do the hand-on-hip red carpet pose without tearing the armhole.

Still, it was a really cute dress on Katy Perry, wasn’t it? Did you appreciate Katy’s literal look as much as we did?

One thing that we think could’ve made Katy’s Grammys look even more noteworthy was if she wore these Miu Miu musical-note-printed pumps:

That would be overkill perhaps, but with a music-themed dress at the Grammys, Katy might as well have gone the whole nine yards.
