That Katy Perry Grammy Dress AND A Certain Novel…

I didn’t watch the Grammy’s and mostly what I heard about was Kanye West’s latest “tell us what you really think even if nobody asked” rant.  Then today, trolling the internet for references to La Traviata as I am wont to do, I found out about Katy Perry’s Verdi inspired dress by Valentino.

The opera/classical music world as well as the fashion world seemed to notice. Most people probably just thought — nice dress, but I thought, “Hmmm 170 years after her death, Marie Duplessis continues to be a fashion-trendsetter.”  Why don’t you read more about that here?
