As Katy Perry's stylist, Johnny Wujek has probably spent more time thinking of how to bedazzle the pop singer's breasts than any other human being on the planet—and that's saying...something. But when we caught up with him at a sneak preview of America's Next Top Model: College Edition, we wanted to know how this former model, full-time stylist, and part-time sidekick to Tyra Banks has developed his own style since his college days. Read on after the jump to find out where Wujek dons wigs and just how very, very different the '90s were.

Racked: So what did you wear when you were in college?

Johnny: I'm from Michigan so I didn't go away to college, which sucks because I wish I would have had a Harvard experience and gotten into the tweed or the plaid. [...] I graduated in '97 so I feel like I would have been in that weird hemp, classic rock stage. Wearing like those pants with the corduroy panels. I had a girlfriend at the time—yeah things were really different back then. [...] And at the time I had really long hair. I miss it.

Racked: You should bring it back!

Johnny: I can't! I wish I could but I can't. I can wear wigs. I wear wigs on the show. Whenever there were wigs on set I put them on. Oh yeah. On camera. I ain't afraid.
