It’s safe to say that Katy Perry threw everyone off-guard with her 20th MTV EMA wardrobe choice. The American singer was far from her usual quirky self as she let spectators drink in her demure, vintage-inspired look.

We really like this outfit. It’s rather tame for a music awards show, but we like how the 29-year-old looked appropriate for the old-world vibe of Amsterdam. Besides, if one is looking for a racy, otherworldly outfit, other singers and fellow MTV EMA attendees can cater to that.

Katy’s ’50s-inspired dress is from Zac Posen. The mint green–gray hue looks great against Katy’s skin. It’s an unadorned dress that only relies on its structured sleeves and silhouette to attract attention. The dress definitely flattered her figure, but it’ll probably look flattering to anyone who wants that nipped-in look to her waist.

The singer styled the dress with pink satin Charlotte Olympia ‘Pomeline’ sandals and a stunning Dolce & Gabbana headband. We’ve also previously featured Kate Mara in the same heels.
