Katy Perry just keeps getting better!

The "Dark Horse" singer graces the cover of not one but two gorgeous Harper's Bazaar covers for their October 2014 issue.

On the newsstand cover, the 29-year-old superstar wears a floral pink gown and poses in a classic pin-up girl style complete with Old Hollywood waves, cat-eye makeup and diamond jewelry.

For the subscribers' cover, Katy wears a dramatic crimson two-piece gown with cap sleeves and a voluminous skirt and poses in front of beautiful garden.

It's fitting that the theme of the covers is red because in the issue, Katy can't stop talking about love.

"What I’ve learned is that if you don’t have the foundation of self-love first, you really have nowhere to pull love from to give it away," she said. "I had to learn about taking care of myself before I could take care of others. I want to mommy everyone. I want to take care of them. I want to save them, and I forget myself in the meantime."

Perry, whose marriage to Russell Brand ended in 2012, dated fellow musician John Mayer on-and-off but is recently single again.

"As I’m heading into my 30s I have less time for bullshit," she told the magazine. "I look for the same characteristics: a sense of humor -- someone who makes me laugh off the charts -- someone who is sensitive, someone who loves and understands music, and who is really smart," she said. "A lot of times I’ve ended up with people who have been intimidated by me, unfortunately. They say they’re not, but it comes out in the long run. They’re threatened, or there’s resentment because they don’t know how to handle it.”
