It may technically be an illustration, but the image of Katy Perry parachuting into the line-up with her other VH1 "Diva's Salute the Troops" concert co-stars is causing an uproar. According to Stylite, Perry herself tweeted that she requested VH1 to give her a Photoshop breast reduction, as they had enhanced her digital cleavage a bit too much for her taste.
Regardless, our eyes fell instead to the camo Norma Kamali parachute jumpsuit she's sporting, a garment actually constructed from parachutes. Kamali makes a whole range of the parachute items, from a full gown ($6,600) to a skimpy bodysuit ($1,500). No word on whether Katy will wear the items on stage when the concert airs on December 5, but at least her boobs will be real.
