Sunday’s One Love Manchester was filled to the brim with powerful moments. But Katy Perry — just one of the many artists who performed at the benefit concert spearheaded by Ariana Grande to honor the victims of the attack carried out by a suicide bomber at Grande’s concert in the city last month — was responsible for one particularly subtle and beautiful tribute.
Perry took the stage in a white minidress and a long furry coat to perform her hits “Part of Me” and “Roar.” But during her set, she eventually removed the coat to reveal a special detail on her outfit: The garment was made out of photos of the 22 concertgoers who tragically lost their lives in the bombing. The colorful pictures could be glimpsed on the dress’s turtleneck collar, the cuffs of the sleeves, and on back of the dress in the shape of a heart.
Perry told the massive crowd, according to BuzzFeed, “It’s not easy to always choose love, is it? Especially in moments like these. It can be the most difficult thing to do. But love conquers fear and love conquers hate. And that love that you choose will give you strength.”
