KATY Perry displays her dazzling curves in a sequined nude dress as she’s honoured for her work empowering gay youths at a starstudded event in LA.
The singer looked flawless in a figure-hugging floor-length frock as she walked the red carpet at the Trevor Project event at the Hollywood Palladium.
Each year the charity, which focuses on suicide prevention among the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, honours a celebrity with its Trevor Hero Award.
And last night they made the 28-year-old their star of 2012.
Trevor Project CEO Abbe Land explained why Katy was chosen, saying: “We’re honouring her because, really, she has done so much to empower youth.
“A couple of years ago when, unfortunately, a lot of young suicides made the news – and there was a very visible presence of suicide – Katy stepped up and was out there in the community, speaking against it.
“Her support of marriage equality — and equality for everyone, really – is one of the many reasons we’re supporting her as our hero this year.”
“Her song Firework is all about empowering youth to just be who they are, and that’s what we try to do when a young person reaches out to us.
“We are there to say, ‘The way you are is perfect. Just be the way you are.'”
There was no sign of Katy’s boyfriend John Mayer on the red carpet – but a host of her big-name pals turned out to lend their support.
Twilight star Anna Kendrick looked unusually curvy in a cleavage-baring lowcut turqoise dress; Avatar star Zoe Saldana smouldered in a nude frock and Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland was pretty in pink in a sexy retro number.
