Katy Perry lit up the Met Gala – and arrived on the pink carpet dressed as a chandelier.

The singer turned heads in an outlandish outfit designed by Jeremy Scott for Moschino, consisting of a crystal-covered mini-dress and matching headwear.

Attached to both pieces of clothing were multiple light bulbs, turning Perry into a walking chandelier.

American Idol judge Perry, 34, walked carefully down the carpet in the dress, which she told reporters weighed 40lbs.

When asked how she planned to sit down, she replied she had no intention to.

Perry was later heard singing a cover of Sia’s hit song Chandelier as she made her way up the steps at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum Of Art.

Scott, one of the world’s most renowned fashion designers, said he wanted to have “fun” with the theme this year, which was Camp: Notes on Fashion.

“The idea of elegance itself is quite camp and I wanted to play with that concept, poke a little fun at it with a loving nudge”, he told Vogue.

Perry is no stranger to wearing head-turning outfits at the Met Gala.

Last year, when the theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion And The Catholic Imagination, she wore a pair of giant angel wings.
