Russell Brand Influences Katy Perry’s Style, Dislikes Shopping

Russell BrandRussell Brand and fiancee are starting to influence each other’s dress sense. The British comedian and the “California Gurls” singer have been together since last September and Russell admits they are now adapting their styles to suit the other’s tastes.

“I would like to endorse that idea. I think I’ve started to wear more colors and she’s started to go darker.  She’s started to dress less like a pantomime character and is a bit more sexy - a bit grown up.”

Although Russell - famed for his eccentric dress sense - is a fan of designers like and the late Alexander McQueen, he admits he doesn’t find shopping very fulfilling.

“My look is a collision between bondage, 70s rock ‘n’ roll and a gentleman at the Henley Regatta. I don’t go shopping much because I find it hard to commit to an object. Will I ever wear these? Then I question the value of consuming, trying to make yourself feel better just by buying a pair of shoes. I think, ‘Will I feel better after I’ve bought these shoes? Or will I just be me…in some shoes.’”
