The truth has been revealed: Katy Perry is nothing but a copy of a 50s’ comic book character called “Katy Keene”
Literally her entire career…. Is based on a comic book.
The now defunct studio, RKO, was known in the ’30s for their Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers films, of which they made nine. Because the films were from the same studio, and the films themselves were similar in needing big dance number costumes, it’s no surprise that costumes from their other similar films were reused again fairly frequently.
This example is actually a silk pair of pajamas that was designed by Walter Plunkett for the 1933 film Flying Down to Rio, where it was worn on Dolores Del Rio as Belinha De Rezende. It was used again the next year in The Gay Divorcee on Betty Grable as Dance Speciality.
