Katy Perry has been showing off what Russell Brand is missing in a new smouldering, burlesque-inspired photo shoot with Interview magazine.

The ‘One That Got Away’ singer oozes sex appeal in the dimly-lit black and white photographs in which she looks very different from her usual colourful self.

She is after all known for dyeing her hair all types of colours – its blue at the moment – and for her candyfloss make up but in this shoot she proves she has a darker side.

Wearing a silver beaded dress, fishnet tights and long bejewelled gloves it looks like she has been inspired by the 1920s.

On the front cover of the magazine, Katy is wearing a studded, sequinned bra, long black gloves and chandelier earrings.

She complements her statement earrings with black, winged eyeliner, pale lips and tousled bedhead hair.

The Teenage Dream singer told the publication what effect her split from Brand will have on her music: “Well, my music is about to get real f****** dark. I’ll be shoe-gazing. You’ll never see my face because my hair is in my face.”

Katy Perry first met British comedian Brand when she made a cameo appearance in Get Him to the Greek in 2009, with the pair getting hitched in India on October 23rd 2010.

Brand filed for divorce on December 30th 2011 citing irreconcilable differences.
