Have you ever heard of Katy Keene? No! Well, it looks like Katy Perry has, and she just might have borrowed (ripped-off) some of Katy Keene’s style! Who exactly is Katy Keene?According to Wikipedia:

Katy Keene, a character created by Bill Woggon, has appeared in several comic book series published by Archie Comics since 1945. She is a model/actress/singer known as America’s Queen of Pin-Ups and Fashions.

Her comics were interactive in that readers were encouraged to submit original drawings of outfits and accessories for her and her friends to wear, as well as designs for automobiles, homes, interiors, rocket ships, trailers and boats. These designs were used in the comics with credit given to published submissions.

Buzzfeed has published some uncanny resemblances from comic book Katy to Pop Star Katy. Everything from fashion statements, to hairstyles, to video concepts seem to be inspired by her namesake comic character. Check out the similarities and pictures here.
