Singer Katy Perry is famous for her love of candy colours and goofy geek chic style.
But the 27-year-old has ditched the girlie look for grown-up glamour in her latest smouldering photo shoot
The black and white campaign images were shot by fashion photographer and ex supermodel Ellen von Unwerth in Los Angeles at the end of Katy's world tour and show the pop star enjoying a series of 'good hair days' for hair brand ghd.

In the first shot she swings from a chandelier in a waist-cinching waspie belt.
Another image shows Katy dressed in an
embellished organza gown staring at the camera in the reflection of a
dressing table mirror.
And finally Katy and her fringe are seen enjoying a very sophisticated game of chess with an unseen opponent.
A long way from a teenage dream, Katy looks elegant and all grown up as she gazes in to the mirror
This is the third time the ghd brand has chosen chameleon Katy to front its seasonal campaign.
Her first pictures for the company in 2011 featured the Californian girl as a dramatic Snow White character shot by David LaChapelle
And in February this year Katy posed as a shimmering mermaid complete with purple hair and a sequin covered tail.

Today's pictures show yet another side to the versatile star that loves to keep her fans guessing.
No doubt John Mayer will be impressed with the shots, divorcee Katy has been on a series of dates this week with the Hollywood bad boy.
Talking about the ghd shoot Katy said: 'It was fun to go a more natural route after playing characters in my last ghd campaign.
'Ellen von Unwerth captured both the playful and chic looks amazingly well.'
