Katy Perry honored as Billboard’s Woman of the Year 2012

This has been a week of looking great for Katy Perry. She was stunning in a dramatic caped gown at the recent UNICEF Snowflake Ball, and now, she shows up in a pretty red dress for the Billboard Women in Music Luncheon.

The Wide Awake singer covers the latest issue of Billboard, holding the honor of being the magazine’s Woman of the Year. She looks stunning with her alabaster skin and her hair neatly pulled back in a perfect ponytail. Magazine photos like this make us think cover girls don’t exist in our reality.

Billboard editor Bill Werde explains why they picked Katy:

“I left the movie theater inspired by that thought, and by Katy‘s strength, as did so many others around the country and the world. The staff discussed the Woman of the Year idea and within a week or two we had reached out to her management.”

Here’s Katy expressing her thoughts about this honor:
