Katy Perry’s celebrity status did not stop photographers and fashionistas from booing her off the catwalk during the Milan Fashion Week. Perry walked on the runway as a guest of American fashion designer and good friend Jeremy Scott on his debut show for Moschino. The pop star allegedly showed up almost an hour late to the event, causing a significant delay to the show. Photographers and other members of the audience showed their disapproval by booing her off the stage as the strutted her stuff on the runway.
The 29-year-old Roar singer arrived at the show wearing a body-hugging black dress with “Moschino” spelled in gold across the chest and a matching coat with gold trimmings. Members of the crowd were visibly upset with impatience as the show started only when Perry took her seat next to singer Rita Ora.
In an attempt to appease the disgruntled crowd, Perry spontaneously launched a photoshoot on the runway before heading to her seat, but the gesture seemed to have backfired as the audience responded with boos and heckles. As the heckling grew louder, Perry snapped at the audience to “shut the f—k up”.
Things did not improve for the famous pop singer when she flew back to Los Angeles on Friday. The jeers continued courtesy of the paparazzi when Perry arrived at LAX, which prompted her assistant Tamra Natisin to confront the photographers and shove them out of the way.
The Moschino show was Scott’s first for the fashion house since he took the position of Creative Director in October of last year. It was held on the exclusive and upscale Corso Venezia and was scheduled to commence at 8 pm. British pop singer Rita Ora was also tardy, but it was only until Perry’s arrival that the models started coming out to the catwalk.
Us Weekly reports that Perry arrived at the exact time she was informed to come to the show, as told by an insider at the Moschino show. Nevertheless, several well-known fashion figures like Marie-Claire UK editor-in-chief Trish Halpin and Financial Times fashion editor Vanessa Friedman were not forgiving of Perry as shown by their real-time tweets.
