The “Bon Appetit” singer, 32, walked the carpet in a scarlet tulle dress by John Galliano with a matching, custom Maison Margiela embroidered coat and veil, which covered her face. She also accessorized with three large diamond rings.

Perry remained cautious as she passed photographers, walking slowly up the stairs while holding her long train. This year, attendees were asked to rock ensembles in honor of Japanese fashion designer Rei Kawakubo at the event.
