Katy Perry Channels The '90s In Crushed Velvet Dress (PHOTOS)

Hey guys, the '90s are back!

Katy Perry channeled her inner figure skater in a red crushed velvet dress and blue satin jacket while promoting her new album "Prism" at the Z100 Morning Show in New York City on Monday.

John Mayer's current squeeze topped off her questionable look with a black leather bra under her Lucca Couture frock, a medallion belt, biker boots and some seriously lackluster hair.

Unfortunately for the "Roar" singer, Russell Brand's ex brings back bad memories of trends gone wrong. Witness "Twilight" star Jackson Rathbone's un-ironic crushed velvet suit which bears a striking resemblance to Katy's frock and Scarlett Johansson's bright blue horror.

Velvet had a bit of a revival in 2012 thanks to Versace and UK designer Christopher Kane but the trend died quickly along with steam punk and boater shoes (thank God).
