Cleopatra Chic: Katy Perry’s Regal Bob

If you're willing to look beyond the ridonk details—a diamond-encrusted grill, hieroglyphics-inspired eye makeup, and the droves of blue-painted extras—there's a wonderful simplicity to at least one aspect of Katy Perry's new "Dark Horse" video: her blunt, Cleopatra-style bob. We're no historians, but we think Perry's look closely resembles the iconic style made popular by Elizabeth Taylor in the 1963 film about the Egyptian queen. Although she dons different colored versions in the video, Perry's hairstyle is actually a timeless, wearable one that—stripped of the attention-grabbing accoutrements—wouldn't seem out of place when paired with a black turtleneck and skinny jeans.
