Recording her new album in New York yesterday, Katy Perry clearly believes there's no excuse to dress down.
Arriving at a studio in Chinatown, New York, the I Kissed A Girl singer looked ready for a night out clubbing in a little black dress and killer heels.
The 25-year-old's dress was so tight in fact, onlookers could clearly see the outline of her strapless bra underneath.
Perry left fiance Russell Brand back at their hotel to hit the studio to record the follow-up to her 2008 breakout album One Of The Boys.
The upcoming LP will be her third album. She released her debut disc Katy Hudson, a gospel-rock album, in 2001.
Perry recently said she was focusing on recording her album first before she started making wedding plans for her nuptials to Brand later this year.
She said: 'Well, I have to plan my new album, first and then I'm going to get to my wedding - but I'm really excited about that, too.

'Russell is a real match for me - in previous relationships I feel like I've just steamrolled the guy, so it's nice to find someone I can't do that to.'
Perry hit the studio on Tuesday after spending the previous day apartment hunting in the Big Apple with Brand.
Their flat search comes just a few months after they bought a four-bedroom, 1920s house in the Hollywood Hills.
They are also looking for a new home in London after Brand put his £2.5million North London bachelor pad on the market.
Brand proposed to Perry after fewer than four months of dating on New Year's Eve, during a romantic trip to India's Taj Rambagh Palace hotel.

They are hoping to return to India later this year to tie the knot, Perry's friend and bridesmaid Rihanna revealed last week.
Rihanna told US radio DJ Ryan Seacrest during an interview on his KIIS FM show: 'She put (organising the hen night) on me last week.
'I have to come up with something cool because she's getting married in India so I'm like "OK, now what do I do to match that?"
'That's at the end of the year so we've got some time to plan that.'
The singer recently revealed that her long-haired fiancé had turned into a bridezilla who was obsessed with weddings.
She said: 'He's a total bridezilla. He's like a freak. He's always buying bride magazines.
'Every time we go out for breakfast, he's like "Can we just stop and get a bride magazine?"'
...Cut! Russell prepares for film role with a new look
Russell Brand is steeling himself for a trip to the barber for the sake of his Hollywood career.
While he was able to keep his long-tressed look for his role as Aldous Snow in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him To The Greek, his upcoming part in the remake of 1981 classic Arthur requires drastic action.

Brand said: 'Normally, I play people where the only thing you need to change is my name.
'But for this, I'm going to change my hair a bit,' he told The Sun.
'I saw a mocked-up picture of how it would look and it didn't look good - like Natalie Portman with a beard.'
'If I'm going to pursue a career in films, I can't always play Rasputin.'
'I can play him once maybe, play Che Guevara, various homeless people and then it's going to have to be a haircut.'
And to help MailOnline readers imagine what he may soon look like, we've found a picture of him with nicely shorn locks as a teenager.
