Why is Katy Perry transforming into a Kardashian: California Girls singer is channelling the famous sisters with her latest looks

She's known for her hit track, California Girls. 

But Katy Perry seems to be leaning specifically towards Calabasas as her latest looks have channeled members of the most famous family on reality TV – the Kardashians.

The singer, 39, has been opting for outfits which are near identical to ensembles worn by the sisters, from audacious fur coats, maroon leather dresses and trendy denim numbers.

It's been marked by a move towards more body-hugging silhouettes, as well as glammed up athleisure looks that accentuate curves.

Most recently, Katy stepped out in nothing but a huge fur coat for the Balenciaga show at Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris on Wednesday.

She was accused of copying Kanye West's wife Bianca Censori – who, ironically, has been dubbed Kim Kardashian's lookalike.

The rapper, 47, was previously married to the SKIMS founder – and famously influenced her fashion choices during their seven-year relationship.

Kim said in a previous episode of the Kardashians: 'Kanye has always dressed me. In the early 2000s, he would literally just send me random emails with all these looks and what my style should be.'

Katy's fur coat also harked back to Kim herself – who exuded glamour in a black faux-fur coat in France in March.

Elsewhere this month, the Teenage Dream hitmaker donned a quirky all-denim ensemble at the premiere of Diane von Furstenberg – Woman In Charge in Paris.

As the star teamed a distressed jacket with a corset-style top and metal-adorned bodycon skirt, she channeled  Kylie Jenner, who sported a similarly styled dress while out and about in London in 2022. 

Katy was also spotted attending a comedy show in Los Angeles earlier in June, for which she wore a form fitting top and cargo trousers.

The sultry yet casual ensemble looked to perfectly mirror Kim's style, who sported a similar look while strolling around New York in 2022.

That same month, Katy also donned a seethrough mesh black gown that could be compared with one worn by Kim at Paris Fashion week in January.

It also perhaps no wonder that Katy's looks are so reminiscent of the Kardashians, as she shares features with the sisters – including glossy, long black tresses and a bronzed skin tone.

However, the ensembles are a far cry from the popstar's old, quirkier fashion choices, which include a dress shaped like a chandelier, a hamburger costume and a bright yellow gown teamed with a blue wig.

Her new aesthetic comes as the star has recently sparked claims that she may be using Ozempic or another weight loss drug after showcasing her incredibly toned figure on the cover of her upcoming album.

After unveiling the cover art for her next record, social media users began to voice speculation that she may be taking a medication to achieve her recent weight loss. 

The performer, who has spoken about trying to squeeze in workouts at least three or four times a week to maintain her figure, was accused of using a weight-loss drug to get in the shape of her life. 

'I hate that like every celebrity, even ones who [are] already thin, is on Ozempic now,' one X user wrote.

Others joked that the 'ozempic is ozempicking' and that Katy is 'so back.' 

Still, some expressed missing her old appearance as they recalled how she 'used to be busty.'

Since catapulting to fame after the release of her 2008 hit, I kissed a Girl, the singer has been widely considered as a sex symbol by the public and previously described as a 'full-on male fantasy' by GQ.

Speculation that she is using a weight loss drug is unsubstantiated and Katy has not publicly spoken about taking any medications to slim down.  

Back in 2011, she spoke about hoping conversations about body positivity continue to grow after 'decades of bad messaging'.

'Long gone are the days where you are not socially aware. You can't unsee all that crazy s**t and not try to do something to change it,' she told Mashable, at the time. 

She continued: 'I know for me, I'm curvy, I'm not sample size, but I represent a lot of people out there. I want to be relatable. That's really important to me, while not losing my mind in this weird f**king human experiment I'm going through.' 

During her pregnancy with daughter, Daisy, who turns four in August, Katy revealed that she was 'really grateful for' her body. 

'Going through this process you get a whole new viewpoint,' she said while appearing on the Kyle and Jackie O Australian radio show.
