And the award for best Octomom Goth-Meets-Britney wardrobe at the MMVAs goes to... Katy Perry!
The 'Part Of Me' singer had several wardrobe changes at last night's Much Music Video Awards show in Toronto. She arrived on the red carpet dressed in a gothic style black and gold gown a la Morticia Addams, replete with purple princess hair. Her accessories? She was accompanied by a gaggle of small children dressed up as characters from several of her videos, representing top hits such as 'California Gurls, 'E.T.' and 'Last Friday Night' (T.G.I.F.).
After the red carpet, Katy tweeted: "I just twerked it out with 8 youngin's of me on the red carpet of the MMVA's. I'm the new octo momma #butnotgettingnaket #yet".
'Yet' was the operative word for her most striking outfit of the night; Katy kept fans in suspense by toning things down in a prim pair of black culottes and a high-neck fitted top to accept the award for International Video Of The Year for 'Last Friday Night'. Then came the big reveal.
For her performance of "Wide Awake", she transformed herself once again and emerged from her cocoon, wearing a sheer nude bodysuit adorned with enormous glittery wings.
And then came the bigger reveal: When Katy recieved her award for UR Fave International Artist, she had already ditched her wings, and strode onstage in her almost-too-see-through suit (with carefully placed crystals in those more personal areas), using her trophy to obstruct the rear view.
To cap her winged triumph, Katy celebrated with... wings of course. She tweeted: Not ashamed to say that I celebrated tonight over some Hooters hot wings #goodnight.

Katy's Being John Malkovich Moment

High-Waisted And Elegant
We approve. Katy looks sophisticated in these flowy, high-waisted trousers, which she can pull off thanks to her impossibly long legs. Photo: Getty Images
Adds An Edge

One of the more stunning moments of the night. Katy performs covered-up in a cloak-like garment, which she sheds dramatically to reveal these gorgeous butterfly wings. Photo: The Canadian Press
Katy Or Britney?
Katy's sparkly bodysuit was very Britney a la 'Toxic' video. The singer quipped that if she had known she was going to win an award, she would have worn more clothes. Noted for next time. Check out the butterfly appliques on her forehead. Photo: WireImage
