Just as we were getting used to Katy Perry's new blue barnet, an image of the popstrel on the cover of Interview magazine arrives — and, oh my, Miss Perry! Gone are the cutesy colours and the cartoonish clothing — here she's embracing her inner sex siren! But which one....?
The debate is raging here at Grazia HQ. Some say Katy is unrecognisable, while others have been quick to point out that she bears more than a passing resemblance to the late, great Amy Winehouse. And it's easy to see why. Towering beehive? Check! Heavy eyeliner wings? Check! Nonchalant pout? Check!
It's also been noted that there's more than a soupcon of Elizabeth Taylor in the mix - see the mussed hair, heavy eyebrows, super-sophisticated elbow-length gloves and fabulous jewels, darling! Or how about Megan Fox in those Armani ads? One commenter even claimed she looked the spit of Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games, although we're not so sure about that one.

We all know the allure of a new 'do after a tough break up and, as news of increasingly strained relations between the singer and her former husband Russell Brand hit the headlines, Katy's really pushed the boat out with a whirlwind of reinventions. The cobalt blue hue may have been devil-may-care, but the fierce look for Interview means business. Take that, Mr Brand! Hell, if she's channeling Liz Taylor then this look might be enough to tempt him into a second marriage. Whatever people's reactions, there's one thing we can all agree on: the lady looks smoking hot!
So, Winehouse clone or Liz Taylor 2? Leave us a comment below to let us know what you think of Miss Perry's astonishing new look...
