Katy Perry’s “ugly” Christmas sweater is Dolce & Gabbana
Pop singer garners decidedly mixed reviews in pricey needlepoint holiday topper.
Katy Perry isn’t exactly known for her taste in modest clothing or tasteful stage costumes, so when we saw how she dressed last week for taking in Broadway’s “A Christmas Story: The Musical,” we found it refreshing in a kind of “Wow – she’s completely covered!” kind of way. Not everyone shares our view.

Judging by their bitchy headline, the Huffington Post really didn’t like the look of this multi-hued knit creation from couture darlings Dolce & Gabanna. And other folks are deeming the entire “ugly Christmas sweater” trend to be so last whenever. For some true editorial balance, we like to dip into the New York Times' take on the phenom, and then follow it up with a tumblr chaser.
