Beautiful Katy Perry lands on the cover of InStyle’s October 2011 issue. The 26-year-old singer looks gorgeous with her pink locks and wearing a stunning Emanuel Ungaro dress. In the cover story, Katy dishes on a wide range of topics including the secret of having it all, her perfect makeup and style, but also on her hubby Russell Brand and having kids.

On her makeup, Katy admits that, “I ordered a special chair from the dentist so I can lie back and wake up looking like a million bucks — I call it my Sleeping Beauty makeup.” The singer is famous for her unique, eye-catching, sometimes quirky appearances. Speaking about her ‘always-delicious red carpet style’, Katy told InStyle that, “I kind of use this inner dial: Either I turn it up or down.”

Katy married English actor and singer Russell Brand in October 2010, in India. The private and spiritual ceremony was attended by their closest family and friends. The couple will celebrate their one year anniversary next month and despite all the countless break-up rumors, the singer insists that everything is fine.

On motherhood, Katy confesses in the interview for InStyle that she’s not planning to have kids right away. “Not yet. I think if you’re married, it’s often in your future. I think in the future – the very far future – when I have children, I’ll have a more open approach, setting boundaries and showing them what their decisions and choices will breed,” she says.

The young star also reveals her secret on having it all. “I’m not going to sit and be steamrolled. I am full of unicorns and Care Bears 99 percent of the time, but don’t open Pandora’s Box of that other 1 percent—because it’s there,” she told the magazine.
