KatyPerry's Met Gala Stylist: If It Were Up to Me, She Would Have Had Eyebrows.
9-5-2016/ “Oh, I dyed my brows about 45 minutes ago,” Perry told Vogue on the red carpet. “My stylist Leslie was like having a panic attack, had to drink two tequilas — she was like ‘What are you doing?!’ I’m like trust me, trust me, trust me!” So when we spoke to her stylist, Leslie Fremar, about how that look came together, she explained that Perry wasn’t kidding about her reaction. “If it were up to me would she have had eyebrows? Yes. But you know what? It wasn’t up to me,” “She really did just want to be bold, take risks and embrace the night. She wanted to have fun with it. She’s freaking Katy Perry! That’s what she does — she has fun!”
“She’s such a visionary and I have a very strong vision myself, but there is a respect there,” explains Fremar. “She is an artist in the true form. Her honesty is what makes her so cool. When I say, ‘Listen, I actually think that you should have eyebrows tonight,’ she says, ‘Well you know what, I appreciate that but I am not going to.'”
But the aesthetic concern didn’t have to do only with the overall conception of the look. Says Fremar, “I was like, ‘Do you know that you’re not allergic to that? Do you know that you’re not going to get a rash on your face right now?’ She’s like, ‘We’ll find out!'”
Of course, the look was obviously not only about the brows. Fremar believes that Prada was the perfect designer to pair with Perry’s vision. “Prada really does stand for forward thinking, technology and innovation,” she says. “It was really cool to collaborate with them, and have conversations like, ‘We want to really go big or go home. Like really, you can go bigger!’ We pushed it to a place where you could tell that Prada made it. It was pretty powerful.”
