You gave THIS up, Russell Brand? An unrecognisable Katy Perry smoulders and stuns in a sexy new photo shoot
It's been said that looking good is the best revenge, and Katy Perry is living proof of that statement. Though her ex-husband has just stepped out with his new girlfriend just two months after they announced their divorce, he might be regretting his decision yet.
The pop star is virtually unrecognisable yet absolutely stunning in a sexy new photo shoot for the March issue of Interview magazine.
Though the 27-year-old has a fabulous figure, she's better known for being quirky than seductive.
Winning! The 27-year-old singer looks downright sensational in her new photo shoot
She shows a different side of herself on the Interview cover with thick, winged black eyeliner, pale lips and teased, bedhead hair.
She appears to be wearing nothing more than a studded, sequinned bra, long, black gloves and chandelier earrings.
This new look might be indicative of the singer's current state of mind: she's bold, brave and nothing is going to break her.
She recently released the single 'Part of Me', a breakup anthem which is currently topping the Billboard charts.
A sample of the lyrics include: 'This is the part of me that you're never gonna ever take away from me, throw your bombs and your blows but you're not gonna break my soul.'
She's going to need to rely on that same inner strength even more intensely now that her ex-husband has finally been photographed with his new girlfriend.
While she was busy attending Elton John's annual Oscar viewing party yesterday, Brand was snapped out in West Hollywood with new love Oriela Medellin Amieriro.
The new couple were seen leaving the Crystalarium shop, which specialises in selling crystals, minerals and crystals.

The 36-year-old reportedly met the Mexican artist, who is famous for her nude paintings, at yoga class.
She was then apparently seen leaving the comedian's apartment earlier this week after staying overnight.
When she was asked about their relationship by The Sun, Oriela remained coy and replied: 'I am not comfortable talking about this.'
He announced he was divorcing Perry in December; the two signed divorce documents earlier this month.
