I missed the blue wig memo re dressing for a Katy Perry gig

Nikki Parkinson Beauty 4 Comments

On Sunday night I found myself jumping up and down, waving my tuckshop arms in the air like I just didn’t care, as US singer Katy Perry belted out her hit single, Firework.

It would have been quite a sight really. A very sober, slightly hungover, 40-something woman in sea of other 30 and 40-something women, all there escorting their tween or teen daughters.  All getting caught up in the colour and perkiness that is Mrs Russell Brand.

In my defence, I was there as a guest of ghd Australia’s PR reps* and DIDN’T insist on dressing up myself and my 14-year-old in matching mother-daughter blue Katy Perry costumes.

Who would dress up like that, you ask?

At least one mum and daughter I stumbled across did.

MY own daughter wouldn’t even let me photograph them, let alone consider donning a blue wig.

Now speaking of wigs … there were lots of them … and for those who didn’t go the wig option, there were ghd stylists on hand at the ghd Gingerbread House to make sure you had a good hair night.

It was all part of the ghd ambassadorship Katy’s signed.

So, back to my attempts to embarrass my daughter with my off-key, “BABY YOU’RE A FIREWORK …” and air punching.

It didn’t work.

But photographing these gems did.

This would be great for the school drop-off, wouldn't it?

This would be great for the school drop-off, don't you think?

Been to a concert lately?  Did you dress up in fancy dress?

  1. I spotted a girl in hot pink patent platform boots just like those at U2 in December. I volunteered to do the drinks run just so I could stand behind and photograph them with my phone.
    Oh, and it was my misfortune (long story) to go to Britney Spears last year. I don’t know where everyone bought their clothes but they were almost universally two sizes too small.
