Katy Perry falls flat on her buns in burger costume

Met Gala fashionistas feasted their eyes in amazement on Katy Perry, who wiped out in a giant hamburger costume at Gucci’s wild after-party — and then was unable to get back up.

Perry took the gala’s camp theme to the next level by changing into a burger costume late Monday night, complete with all the trimmings — bun, beef patty, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and cheese, plus a toothpick hat — from which the singer’s hands only partly protruded.

Witnesses said Perry was so encased in the burger ensemble that others were forced to help feed her because she couldn’t reach her mouth.

But despite being encased in a Jeremy Scott-designed barrel of rubber, Perry didn’t hold back on the dance floor at the late-night after-party at Hunter College’s basketball court.

She was seen dancing with pals including model Karlie Kloss, enthusiastically shimmying her oversize slider and bumping the burger up and down to beats from DJ Mark Ronson.

That is, she did until around 1 a.m., when Perry fell flat on her buns on the dance floor, and lay there motionless, unable to get back up, while her little legs were seen wiggling out of the bottom of the whopper of a costume.

Two partygoers came to the aid of the stricken star, hauling her back to her feet, before Perry wobbled away.

An eyewitness said, “It was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. Katy . . . just toppled over. Once she was on the floor, she couldn’t get up . . . She rolled around a little, but she was stuck because she had no arms. People rushed over and literally picked her up.”
Meanwhile, other sartorial snobs sniffed about how Perry came dressed as comfort food, but ended up on the floor with the leftovers.

Also at the bash, Shawn Mendes got sideways looks from A-listers as the only star with security.

“His bodyguard kept asking people to give him his space,” huffed a spy. “He was hardly being bombarded.”

Ignoring him on the dance floor were Lupita Nyong’o, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tiffany Haddish, Sienna Miller, Carey Mulligan, Emma Stone, Naomi Campbell, Michael Kors and Donatella Versace.
