Katy Perry launches shoewear line at Coachella

Katy Perry introduced her new footwear line at an Easter brunch event during the Coachella festival on Sunday (16Apr17).

The star of the show posed for the paparazzi while standing inside a massive version of one of her high-heeled red, black and white shoes. The Firework hitmaker wore an all-white shorts, tank top and fishnet cover-up outfit with her feet sporting the new line's bunny motif flats, designed as a tribute to a beloved pair she found in a charity shop 15 years ago.

She called the event a Recovery Brunch and tried out the assorted stations aimed at helping guests recover from the wild weekend's excesses. There was a make-your-own Bloody Mary station, an oxygen bar, and a Juicero stand, where guests could load up on organic cold-press juices. Fried chicken and waffles were also on the menu with vegan alternatives available too.

Katy announced the Katy Perry Footwear Line last year and initially hoped for a January (17) launch for the spring collection. "I have a two-car garage full of shoes and my dream is to bring personality shoes to the marketplace at an affordable price for women (ages) 16 to 40 or beyond," she told Women's Wear Daily last September (16).

She planned a collection of 60 styles inspired in part by her global travels.

The collection's price point is important to Perry, as she shared with the fashion bible last year.

"I am always conscious of my audience," she noted. "At my shows, I could jack up the ticket price for my peers, but I always have a price range available for that person who's always been my fan."

Her own fairly poor upbringing is never far from her thoughts.

"I didn't grow up with any money and I was always getting by by the skin of my teeth, so affordable is just ingrained in me."Read more at:prom dress

But Seriously…What Are Wedding Bells, Anyway


You may have heard people say they hear wedding bells ringing, whether it was in reference to your any-minute-now proposal or your quickly-approaching wedding date. And yes, churches have bells that are often rung as the newlyweds make their way back up the aisle, but is that all those bells mean? Here's a look into the symbolism of wedding bells, courtesy of our experts.

The symbolism of wedding bells is actually two separate types of bells, though both ideas come from ancient Celtic and Irish history. The first is church bells. In historic times, bells were believed to ward off evil spirits, so newlyweds would be blessed with the loud ringing of bells. Start a marriage without evil spirits? Sounds good to us! The ringing of bells was also used as a way to spread news across long distances, so bells after a wedding let the whole area know that the couple was now happily married. While the superstition about evil spirits may not be so common today, the joyful sound of bells and their association with weddings has stuck around. Bells are often tolled at church after a wedding ceremony (sometimes by the newlyweds themselves!).

The second type of bells are the small bells that might be passed out to guests to ring, either as the couple exits the church or during the reception as an encouragement to kiss—similar to the clinking of wine glasses. The sound of bells is also supposed to remind the couple of the vows they've made. Bells are also popular in many wedding decorations, usually as two bells tied together with a bow to represent two people joined together in marriage. No matter how you choose to incorporate them, the happy sound of ringing bells is a beautiful addition to any wedding day!Read more at:purple prom dresses uk | yellow prom dresses

Here’s everything you need to know


Thinking about eloping? Here's everything you need to know

Less fuss, fewer guests, and a better chance of good weather. It’s all very tempting. But it’s not always quite that easy, and the worst case scenario would be to get to your chosen location and find that you’ve missed an important step.

So. How does eloping work?

Picking where to get married

This is the fun bit. Where in the whole of the world would you like to get married? Does one of you have some heritage you’d like to honour? Is there somewhere you’ve always wanted to travel to?

It’s worth thinking about what kind of weather you’re hoping for. Of course, sunshine is lovely, but if it’s going to be 30+ degrees then that might change what kind of dress you’ll have, and what kind of food. There’s no wrong answer here, but it’s a conversation worth having.

Another factor to consider is how you would feel if the weather turned out to be awful. Is your destination special enough to you that you’ll still love it in the rain?


The only downside of eloping is that unless you’ve got enough money to buy everyone’s flights, you are going to end up with fewer guests.

If you’ve got a small family, a close-knit group of friends, or you don’t want anyone there, dreamy. But you do need to be very sure within yourself that you won’t end up regretting not having had your fourth cousin Gwen and her triplets there.

How long do you need to be resident for?

The biggest thing to work out is how long you need to be resident in the country for in order to get married there. The rules are hugely varied. Italy requires four to seven days, depending on the area. In Frace, it needs to be several months, unless a specific church is willing to make an exception. Travel Weekly has a full list of destinations.

Do you need any tests?

Some countries require you to have tests before you get married. This can be a blood test to screen for shared genetics or a test for sexually transmitted infections. In Mauritius, if you’ve been divorced less than 10 months before your next wedding you’ll need to have a pregnancy test. None of this is anything to worry about, but you’ll need to organise and pay for it all, so best to sort it out before you leave.

Certificate of no impediment

As you can probably tell from the title, this is a certificate which proves that you are both free to marry. Not all countries require you to produce one in order to get married. You can get it from your local registry office, but you shouldn’t get it too long before the wedding (more than six months) because some countries need it to have been issued recently.Read more at:one shoulder prom dresses
