Ever the queen of costuming, Katy Perry donned a red, white and blue costume complete with stars and stripes and a tiny top hat while performing at the 2013 Kids' Inaugural concert on Saturday night in Washington, D.C.
Katy Perry was decked out in patriotic stars and stripes for Saturday's Kids' Inaugural Concert, which honored military families and helped, celebrate four more years of Barack Obama at the White House. The singer wore an American-flag-themed stage costume while performing 'Firework', 'Teenage Dream' and 'Part of Me' as part of her set for a crowd of teens and tweens including Sasha and Malia Obama.
The spunky singer donned a red, white and blue bustier costume, complete with stars, stripes and a tiny top hat her look with sparkling fishnet tights, glittering red Mary-Jane pumps and nails painted with tiny American flags. She headlined the show and belted out four of her biggest family friendly hits at the packed Washington Convention Center. The venue was filled with kids whose parents are in the military, along with Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia in the front row. Katy Perry often rocks the 1950s pin-up look, which was especially appropriate for the concert honoring military families.
The cast of Glee were also present, with actress Amber Riley giving a rendition of Christina Aguilera's hit ballad 'Beautiful'. The event, hosted by Nick Canon, also featured Usher, Far East Movement, and members of the Glee cast. The musician Katy Perry closed out the night with 'Part of Me', 'Firework', 'Teenage Dream' and 'Wide Awake'.
